You’ll probably want to get a new faucet while you’re upgrading your sink. The mechanism and sealing in faucets will wear out over time, so it’s a good idea to get a new one every so often. These, too, come in many different styles so you are sure to find one that works for you. If your faucet is relatively new, though, you may be able to remove it from the old sink and add it to the new one.
Finally consider the store you are buying from. If a copper sink seems \"cheap\" in price, there is usually a reason. I have seen many of the copper sinks sold on the most famous \"auction site\". All I can say is \"buyer beware\", or more to the point \"you get what you pay for\".... If something goes wrong with your sink or there is a problem when it arrives, you want to make sure the company you purchased from will stand behind their product. Think carefully about buying internationally. Too often, a sink that is received isn’t as represented. A reputable dealer should identify their shipping location, clearly state their warranty and return policy and be available for consultation.
Another widely used sink is the traditional vessel sink. These vessel sinks have been used for designing bathroom sinks for many homes and businesses. This bowl-shaped sink appears to be submerged on a top of a counter. Tall filler faucets and sometimes wall faucets are installed above these vessel sinks. Traditional vessel sinks come in different types of materials such as china, ceramic, bronze, glass, and clay.
If you handle the sink installation process properly, you will have accomplished a couple of things. First, you will have saved money by installing your bar sink yourself. Secondly, when your guests compliment your bar sink area, you will have the satisfaction of knowing, and bragging, that you did it yourself!
You will actually want to install faucet hardware into the sink before you place it into the counter. The faucet should come with instructions for that particular model, and we recommend following the manufacturer’s directions. Test the swing of the faucet now before you tighten the nuts and bolts. This is also when you’ll install the strainer into the drainhole of your new sink, usually with plumber’s putty. Be sure that both of these items are watertight - you don’t want a leak!
