Vessel sinks ‘are‘ a common decision when replacing bathroom water fixtures. They can attach a very modern also refreshed look to the bathroom, and are available in several different unique styles that can match the focal point of your whole bathroom. These sinks appear in many many beautiful finishes including glass, marble, cast iron, stainless steel, bronze, plus ceramic. The styling of certain sinks impersonates that of designs that are centuries old, as washbasins were used long before homes added running water. These sinks are designed to be freestanding, sitting straight on top of the bathroom countertop or different furniture items that are designed to support the basin, although some types are designed so that they can be wall mounted.
If you are following an existing bathroom vanity with a vessel sink, you might require to first consult a plumber, in case your pipes must be moved to support the installation. The current vanity and countertop will also need to be excluded because they will not be configured correctly for use with a vessel sink. Countertop height for a vessel sink is another than for a traditional bathroom sink and vanity, due to the fact that the sink will sit higher than the countertop height. The countertop itself should be planned to be lower than normal, to provide the additional height of the vessel sink. Since vessel sinks ’come in varying’ heights, you should ′measure′ the height of the sink, also adjust the countertop ‵height‵ so that the top edge of the sink is about 32 to 36 inches from the floor, which is the standard height for the top edge of a bathroom sink. If you think to install your ‘vessel sink‘ on the surface of a piece of furniture, you will need to take this height limitation into account as well. Some styles can also be added directly to a wall using a specifically designed bracket if desired.
Choosing a faucet with a unique look that works well with your sink is also a choice that will take some careful thought.
