Colette Hernandez. Bathroom Sink. December 11th , 2017.
Another type of bathroom sink that features a seamless look is the integral bathroom sink. This is when the countertop and sink are formed with one continuous material, most often solid surfacing, metal, stone or concrete. This produces a clean look that is easy to clean as well. Mostly, these bathroom sinks come in the traditional oval or round, but rectangular and troughlike shapes are starting to appear as well. If you are looking to make a bold statement with your bathroom sink choice, then a vessel sink may be right for your bathroom sink. Vessel sinks come in a broad range of materials, from stone, metals including stainless steel and copper, to beautiful glass works of art. A vessel sink sits on top of your counter, so you should consider the height aspect of installing a vessel sink. You also might not want a vessel sink if your bathroom is used a lot, especially by kids, since the bowl is completely exposed and there is NO overflow drain.
To install the pedestal sink you will need to follow the directions provided. These will tell you the height of the sink to install the bracket on the wall. After installing the bracket you could install the bathroom faucets and the drain. Then set the pedestal in place, silicone the back of the sink and set onto the wall bracket. This should allow the sink to sit gently on the pedestal as well. Now screw in the lag bolts to hole the sink firmly. With both styles of sinks to finish the installation hookup the drain and the water lines. Turn on the water and check for leaks. One other style of sink is the wall mounted style. This is the same as the pedestal except that there is no pedestal.
Many models have plumbing elements that are safely hidden inside the pedestals. These sinks are usually embedded in counter tops with closed storage cabinets underneath. Vanity sinks are practical as they give you both the space for countertop and storage where you can hide your bathroom essentials. Antique vanity sinks are available to complement a bathroom with a period décor. This type of sink is simply mounted or hung to the wall at a level or height that suits you. Just make sure that before you mount this sink, you have solid fixings and wall to support the weight of the sink when it is full of water or when you partly lean on it. This sink is useful in a corner or a small space. Also, make sure that the plumbing is neatly fitted below the sink for a neat look.
Granite counter tops with an under mount sink are one of the nicest finishes you could put into a bathroom. To install an under mount bathroom sink you will need the people you buy the granite from to install the sink in place when they install the counter top. They will drill the holes to accommodate your bathroom faucets. After the sink is set and dried you can do your drain and water hook-ups. If you have a ceramic or porcelain bathroom sink going into your bathroom vanity you will need to use silicone to hold the sink into place. Also a molded counter top with a sink will have to be silicone to the top of your bathroom vanity. Steel bathroom sinks will have clamps that hold the sink in place. Pedestal sinks are the second type of bathroom sink. This type uses a pedestal to hold up the sink. The pedestal is used to conceal the p-trap and the drain. All the pedestals that I have installed are white in color. This will pretty much decide your other fixtures color. (toilet and shower or bathtub)
