Oval Vessel Sink Buying Guide
A vessel sink can be an elegant and bold element for your bathroom vanity area. You can choose to mount the sink in a variety of ways. Depending on the accent pieces you include in your bathroom, a vessel sink can provide a traditional, luxurious or modern look. Oval vessel sinks are very popular because they provide a functional unit that is extremely sophisticated in style. However, if you do not purchase the right piece for your bathroom, you risk reducing functionality or impacting style in a negative fashion. This buying guide will help you identify the right sink for your vanity space.
Type of Mount
The first thing to consider with any shape of vessel sink is the installation preference. Will you want to top mount, under mount or partially recess the sink? Top mounted sinks involve having the entire vessel sit above the counter like a bowl. Under mounting is the more traditional option and involves having the sink set all the way into the cabinet. Partial recessing is the compromise between the other options. Read the specifications for each sink you look at to determine what type of installation will be allowed with that model.
Size and Height
Another important aspect of installation is the size of the sink. If you want to under mount the sink, then you should make sure the width of the sink matches cutouts in your counter top. You should also ensure the depth of the sink is appropriate for your cabinet and the sink will not come into contact with drawers or pipes. If you will mount the sink above the counter, you still need to make sure it is not too wide for the counter space. Going too small, however, may reduce functionality or look disproportionate on a large counter space.
Faucet and Drain
Faucets and drains are a concern when it comes to vessel sinks, especially if you are top mounting them on the counter. You will likely need a single hole faucet that comes up from the cabinet enough to clear the sink edge. Most vessel sinks do not have a secondary drain, so you need to purchase a drain without an overflow.
Our oval vessel sinks come in a variety of materials, including copper, natural stone, ceramic and glass. You should choose the material that provides for your needs and looks best with your space.
Shape and Color
In addition to choosing a material that best fits your space, you also want to match the style and color of your sink to your room. For example, if you have a contemporary bathroom with black cabinets, white walls and mostly monochrome elements, you may not want a colorful sink. Choose a sink that complements the walls, flooring, cabinetry and counter top. You can make a bold statement without the sink becoming a disturbing element within the room.
Finally, you must ensure the sink you choose will integrate with existing plumbing. If you do not understand plumbing specifications, you may want to have someone familiar with the issues look at your sink choice before you make a purchase.
