Vessel sinks – which sit raised on a countertop – are a hot trend in bathroom fixtures. They make a striking focal point for your space and can transform a room from drab to fab. Copying the design of washbasins from centuries ago, vessel sinks bring a new element of style to any bathroom. It's important to not only select vessel faucets and sinks that will match your décor, but your personal style as well. Here are five prominent vessel faucet and sink styles to choose from:
Contemporary. This style of sink and faucet is perfect for today’s casual living. Choose from a variety of contemporary pairings that boast a simple and clean styling in easy-care finishes.
Modern. These vessel faucets and sinks feature a clean, minimalist, urban contemporary design that takes advantage of the countertop space you have and utilizes it well.
Old World. Luxury, grand scale and timeless details define this type of sink and faucet. Choose from fixtures with ornate carvings, oversized scale, and rich finishes. If your home is your castle, look no further than Old World.
Traditional Classics. If you want a vessel faucet and sink with the timeless characteristics of traditional design and classic heirloom looks, this style is for you.
Rustic Retreat. Rugged finishes, accents of slate, and distressed designs embody the look in these collections.
No matter which style you choose, when installing vessel sinks, there are several things to consider, including whether your counter height and plumbing pipes are situated to accommodate them. Another thing to think about is which vessel faucet will work best with your sink. Vessel sinks vary in height and diameter, which means that one bathroom faucet does not fit all sinks. You want enough space between the vessel faucet and the sink to wash hands, but not so tall that excessive splashing occurs. Furthermore, the angle of the water flow should be such that the water hits the sink bottom – not the side. Otherwise, be prepared for a major splash zone. In addition, you can choose a deck-mounted or wall-mounted vessel faucet.
Any faucet can wear out due to corrosion or broken parts – and when this occurs, faucet leaks can happen and lead to even worse plumbing problems in the future. Be sure to keep up maintenance on your entire plumbing system so this doesn't happen to you.
