Price is also going to be a consideration. With some vessel sinks running between $1500.00 and $2000.00 you might want to opt for a less expensive porcelain or glass sink rather than that made of copper or marble. Keep in mind that not only are you going to be paying the cost of the sink, but, you will also need to have a new counter top for your vanity or a new vanity and a new set of faucets as well. So make sure that you can afford the type and style of bathroom vessel sinks you are choosing. Vessel sinks are a wonderful way to add an artistic touch to your bathroom decor without cluttering up the bathroom itself. By giving careful consideration to the type of vessel sink you want and its installation you can have a look that is unique and you are happy with.
Vessel sink vanities are never as pricey as my clients think they will be. What I tell my clients about the sinks and what they can do for a bathroom they will instantly assume that they will cost an arm and a leg. When I tell my clients what the price of the sinks are they are usually so surprised and so excited that they will want to go out and buy them that instant. This is good news for me because the sooner they install the sinks the sooner I can sell the house.
You can get vessel sink vanities as small as two feet wide. Walmarts cute Pegasus 24 Cherry Round Vanity with Vitreous China Vessel Sink is $431 right now. Shipping will cost you an extra $120. For extremely small spaces, the design rule is to have any "furniture" (your vanity qualifies as furniture) be see through. In other words, no enclosed drawers. That may be the rule, but in practical terms, you need a place to store toilet paper and other bathroom essentials, and it is neater to close them in behind cabinet drawers. Consider your space either way -- both with an enclosed cabinet below the sink platform, or open and without the doors.
For an above counter installation, you will need a hole that is large enough to accommodate the drain assembly. This is the plumbing hardware that allows the sink to drain the water. If the bottom of your vessel is flat, then the installation is straightforward. The only thing we would recommend is a bead of silicone under the sink and around the edge to prevent water on the countertop from working its way underneath the vessel. If the vessel has a rounded shape - as with most glass vessel sinks - you have two options. You can either use a vessel mounting ring (sometimes these are provided with the sink) or you will need to provide a mounting hole directly in the countertop.
