They are unique, handmade items created by artisans in different global locations. Many of these beautiful items are so pretty that they can be showcased alone as decorative objects of art. Now just imagine how great they would look in your bathroom. Let's take a deeper look into what these types of sinks are all about.
A vessel sink is single unit “bowl”. Commonly, they are created out of glass, copper, porcelain, stainless steel or combined materials. A glass vessel sink is usually made out of hand blown glass. They are created by artists whom no two are alike. The downside is that they can be quite expensive. But because of this, they are very attractive and are used in formal settings and in nicer homes. The glass is thick and can contain particles, patterns, prints, objects, and bubbles. It can be solid, opaque or transparent. Copper vessel sinks can be polished, hammered or darkened/burnished. They turn a beautiful shade of lightish green as they age. This is called verdigris.
Vessel sinks can be free standing and be floating above the counter recessed into a higher end counter top unit or a vessel sink vanity. The vanities are all unique. Each manufacturer prepares a vanity as an art piece. Vanities may compliment a variety of bowls available and be prepared in many different styles and colors. Vanities may be as simple as a cabinet with little detail or as ornate as a forged iron stand or a very detailed hand blown glass pedestal with sparkles and chips of colored glass. Vanities are prepared in groups to match various bowls with different options available to “match”. They are oftentimes created in families that match the vanities and may or may not come from the same vendor or supplier.
Vessel sink faucets can be selected through various vendors to enhance the natural beauty of the sink and bath or kitchen accessories. Faucets can be placed at various angles and do not necessarily need to be directly behind the sink unit. Faucets can be made out of degraded metals and other products that add a natural beauty to the creation. Faucets can be created out of copper, ceramic, bronze, iron, natural rocks and gemstones, glass, colorful plastics, and of course basic nickel, chrome, brass and stainless steel.
Vessel sinks are an amazing accessory to tie together an elaborate décor or a great statement for a clean, minimal décor. Work with designers and professionals in this selection as the parts are unique and may or may be made to your size and satisfaction. You can get these at the store or online where you will be able to view a wide assortment of different styles and designs. This will help you visualize what the sink would look like in your own bathroom. As you can see, these sinks can turn an ordinary bathroom sink into a stunningly beautiful one.
