About Vessel Sinks
Vessel sinks are freestanding countertop sinks that stand directly on top of a counter or bathroom vanity. They are a beautiful and elegant alternative to traditional sinks. Since vessel sinks sit on top of the counter, the counter height must be lower than traditional counters. The sink, itself, should be about 32 to 36 inches above the floor for adults to comfortably access the sink. One of the main factors in selecting a vessel sink is which material the sink will be made of.
Glass is a common and versatile vessel sink material because of the many colors available and their ease of cleaning. Styles range from clear glass to hand blown masterpieces. They can feature different textures to compliment different themes.
Stone is also a popular vessel sink material. Stone sinks are usually cut from a single block to avoid seams. Because of this, they tend to weigh more and will require more support. Their rustic styling and various textures and colors make them a diverse and desirable option to compliment any bathroom or countertop.
Stainless Steel vessel sinks are also available to consumers. Although they are not a common as stone or glass. They offer the durability of steel and a clean modern ascetic to the modern bathroom. Vessel sinks are made in a variety of other metals like copper, nickel, brass, and bronze. These metals can compliment other stone finishes and other details in your bathroom.
