There are so many types of bathroom vessel sinks that add a classy touch to your bathroom and incorporate modernity into the design. Indeed, the prices are higher, but the investment is for sure worth it. Among the many types of bathroom vessel sinks, which one should you choose? A look at the main features of each will help you make a decision.
Bathroom vessel sinks can be divided into many types on the basis of the installation or the material used.
Types of Bathroom Vessel Sinks on the Basis of Installation
Above the Counter Installation
In this type of installation, the vessel sink rests on the type of your bathroom vanity or counter. The only modification that you will need to do to your counter is to drill a hole that has a specific diameter. Once that is done, the sink will easily be fitted without any other adjustments.
Though a recessed bathroom vessel is more difficult to install, it provides more stability. The counter top is cut into a hole that is bigger than the drain hole, but smaller than the diameter of the sink. This size allows the sink to fit firmly into the counter.
Types of Bathroom Vessel Sinks Based on Materials
Glass Vessel Sinks
Glass vessel sinks require a lot of care and maintenance, but their attractive styles will want you to have one of these in your bathroom. These sinks are available in glass that is clear, opaque, or translucent. The colors are also aplenty and the sink may either feature a single hue or a whole array of attractive shades. Thus, there are plenty of options for you to choose from, but you may have to spend more amounts than on sinks made from other materials.
Stone Vessel Sinks
Stone vessel sinks are generally made of granite, marble or travertine. Compared to glass vessel sinks, the selection may be sort of limited in term of colors, but is still good enough. If you prefer a greener bathroom that depicts a natural look, the stone sink is the one you should go for.
Ceramic Vessel Sinks
A ceramic vessel sink is a tradition option, but is popular even today. Probably one of the cheapest options for vessel sinks, this one is available as either a plain white sink or is decorated with stunning hand-painted designs. Install a ceramic sink, and your bathroom will have a fine, delicate sort of look.
Copper and Metal Sinks
Do you want your bathroom sink to be shaped differently than the standard oval? The copper vessel sink is for you then because it is available in a number of interesting shapes such as square, ellipse, rectangular, cone and so on. The sink may also be patterned with a self-design, but obviously the rate will also be higher. Other than copper, nickel may also be used as the material.
Now that you know more about the different types of bathroom vessel sinks, we hope it is easy for you to choose one for your bathroom.
