Sinks. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 23:43:34 PM
Vessel sinks, commonly known as basin sinks are becoming the popular trend in the luxury kitchen. Vessel sinks sit atop instead of being below the countertop unlike the traditional sink basins. So they are more visible and make a major design statement. They are now produced in a variety of unique and kitchen friendly materials including stones, glass and wood.
Pedestal sinks are extremely popular with both new construction and older homes. This type uses a pedestal to support the basin and disguise the water lines and plumbing. Pedestal sinks are practical, space-saving choices because of their small footprint and simple installation. They are available for use on a straight wall, or specially designed for use in a corner. Corner style pedestal sinks are particularly useful for very small powder rooms. Pedestal sinks are most often made of vitreous china, ceramic, fireclay, or porcelain.
One disadvantage of stainless kitchen sinks is that they are noisier than other sinks. A good quality kitchen sink will be insulated with some type of vibration damping material on the underside of the sink to help alleviate this issue. No one wants to hear a cymbal crash every time they drop a dirty fork in the sink. In addition to keeping the noise down, this insulation will help with condensation build up on the underside of the sink, thus preventing moisture issues in the base cabinet and keeping everything drier and less prone to mold or mildew, so look for a protective coating on the bottom of the sink.
