Most often the vessel is a round bowl shaped vessel but the basin can be any size or shape. Other than bowls, square basins are popular. Vessel sinks can be made out of a variety of materials but the most popular are glass, stone, or metal. The vessel can sit directly on the counter or on a base which builds it up more. If you have this kind of sink you need to think carefully about the faucets that you use. They need to be able to get the water up and over the vessel edge and the controls need to be easily accessible. Vessel sinks are trendy and are most often seen in homes that feature modern design and decorating. You can use a vessel sink in any bathroom that has counter space.

Copper sinks often come in various finishes from a bright copper finish (like a new penny) to a dark patina (we call ours \"Dark Smoke\") and everything in between. The copper finish you choose is a matter of personal taste, but oftentimes our clients prefer the more \"weathered\" patinas to avoid the upkeep or uncertainty associated with shiny copper. If you want to slow down the patina process, try applying a wax like \"Renaissance Wax\". Applied every few months, the wax will provide a barrier between the copper and the environment.

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.

But it is not advisable to buy cheap stainless steel sinks as they would be made of very thin material and would not be durable. Moreover cheaper stainless steel sinks would get scratches on them easily. A good quality stainless steel sink would be easy to clean and won’t get scratched easily. It is better not to get the mirror type stainless steel sinks. Frequent use will scratch its surface and the shiny new look will become a foggy dirty look. Also do check if there is insulation under the sink bowl. Insulation tends to minimize the noise created by water drumming.

When replacing your counter top along with adding a sink, the best way to install the sink is to do it before the counter top is installed. You can epoxy the sink to the counter while the counter is upside down. After the sink has dried you can then install the counter with the sink already attached.

The most important part of this process is to let the epoxy dry at least as long as the manufacturer recommends. You can’t go wrong by letting the epoxy dry for a longer period of time, but you WILL get in trouble if you do not let the epoxy set for the at least the proper amount of time. The result can be a sink that feels secure, but fails under the load of water and dishes. That is not a pretty sight, so be sure to let the epoxy dry.
