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!
There are five styles of bathroom sinks to choose from when you are picking out the focal point of your bathroom. Which one you choose depends on how much space you have available, who will be using the bathroom, how many will be using the bathroom, and what kind of design theme the room will have. Different kinds of sinks are more appropriate for different styles. This article will explain the five choices and give pros and cons of all of them.
Copper kitchen sinks are the most beautiful choice for your kitchen. From the traditional undercounter sinks to the large apron font farmhouse sinks, copper basins add charm and elegance. If you are planning to install a copper sink in your kitchen, make sure of the quality of copper used or else you will regret for having selected it. Poor quality copper leads to the staining of the sink and difficulty in maintaining it aesthetically. If you install stunning copper sinks in your kitchen the very presence of it can instantly enhance the beauty of the most mundane of kitchens.
A vanity sink is one that is installed into cabinetry. The most common types of installation for a vanity sink are drop in and under mount. A drop in vanity sink is one that fits into a hole cut into the counter top. The hole is slightly smaller than the rim around the top of the sink so that it sits comfortably on the counter top. This type of installation is best if the counter tops you are using do not have finished edges. The sink will hide the cut edges of the counter. The second type of installation can be utilized if you have marble or granite counter tops that have finished edges. The sink is mounted under the counters so you will see the sides of the counter where the hole has been cut. These sinks are most appropriate for larger bathroom where you will need storage. Most of the time there just isn’t room for a cabinet in a small powder room.
I am a fan of copper sinks. I think they are rugged yet elegant - especially as they age. The rich highlights and undertones of the patina process are constantly evolving. A copper finish is a \"living finish\" and never really stops changing in color. That being said, the evolution of a copper finish is gradual, and as it ages it becomes even more handsome. You can greatly reduce this change with the use of wax or even a lacquer product, but personally I like to let the copper evolve. Most often this process results in a mellow brownish weathered copper patina. I like to refer to it as the basins soul.
