Sinks. Saturday , May 27th , 2017 - 21:56:15 PM
Vessel sinks are bowl-shaped basins that are the latest fashion for modern bathrooms. The vessel sink sits on top of the bathroom counter instead of being sunk into it. Tall vessel filler faucets or wall mount faucets must be used with these overcounter sinks. Vessel sinks can be made of vitreous china, ceramic, fireclay, copper, bronze, or glass.
The current trend is starting to change in the stainless steel undermount sink. In the past most people preferred a double bowl sink, however a single large bowl is being selected much more frequently. It would seem many people are using the dishwasher and they want a larger single sink to wash just the pots and pans. It should be noted that the largest undermount single bowl on the market today is typically 30 inches long (measured horizontally) by 18 inches wide (front to back). This does not seem like big difference from the typical double bowl that measures 33 inches long (measured horizontally) by 22 inches wide (front to back), but the reality is the reduction of the sink size allows for much greater room behind the sink which will now open up your faucet choices and it also allows placement of the sink a little farther back in the countertop which allows the front edge of the counter top more meat which helps significantly in keeping breakage of the countertop to a minimum. This is truly important because most solid surface countertops fail at this critical point not only at installation but a year or two after installation after your fabricator is now no longer responsible.
The number and size of the basins in your sink are probably the first consideration you’ll have. Dual-basin sinks are the most common, featuring two sides with the faucet in between. Farmhouse sinks, with one large basin, are also a popular choice, especially for country-style homes. Models are also available with basins of different sizes, such as a small one for washing vegetables.
