We are living in an era where more and more people are interested in home improvement. This has resulted in homeowners looking for new and innovative ways to remodel their homes. Living rooms and patios can be redesigned to give the home a whole new look. But more and more people are also coming to the realization that the kitchen and the bathroom are also excellent places to remodel. One way of doing this is with new vessel sinks. This has been often overlooked in many instances. But sinks have a very unique place in the bathroom. If well-designed vessel sinks are combined with properly chosen faucets to convey a unique design into the bathroom, the home can be transformed. This is especially true when they are well selected designs which compliment the faucet system. Redesigning your bathroom is a great way of giving your home a facelift.
Except the commonly used traditional sinks, there are many types of sinks that are released on the market. The material used in making sinks has been improved from the usual porcelain or ceramic vessel sink to a broader selection of materials such as glass, marble, brass, etc. Choosing the right vessel sink is based on your own preference.
Recent remodels of the vessel sinks utilize glass as its main material due to its customizable features which may be in variations of colors, textures, and shapes. The glass vessel sinks may be personalized by embossing them with customized designs. Other vessel sinks that you may find on the market are made of metal, marble and other kinds of materials.
Some people are concerned that glass sinks are not strong enough. But what they fail to realize is that they do not use ordinary glass. They use what is called tempered glass. This is glass that has been specially enginieered by passing it through intense heat and sudden cooling. This gives it extraordinarily durability and strenth.
The thickness used for above-counter sinks may vary from Ѕ to ѕ inches. These are ideal figures to add strength on the glass used. The glass material can last long if they are carefully maintained. People who are not interested in using glass on their vessel sink may choose from other materials such as china, stone, copper, marble, brass and stainless steel.
The vessel sinks also comes in wide selection of shapes. The shapes of the vessel sinks may vary from different styles such as square, oval, fluted, round, floral and other customized designs. These shapes may be accompanied by a suitable color to compliment with the shade used on your bathroom.
When buying a vessel sink, there are a few pointers to remember. One is about the faucets. This is very crucial to the overall installation. This may also affect the actual installation process. Wall installations for instance, are harder to institute compared to regular installations.
The users of the bathroom should also be considered in remodeling your vessel sink. Counter type vessel sinks may not be reached by small children. So if you want to accommodate the needs of all the members of your family, you may want to reconsider on which type of vessel sink is to be chosen. Other factors to be considered are the vessel sink’s width and depth. The vessel sinks and faucets should also be placed accordingly on bathrooms with installed mirrors or medicine cabinets.
