Vessel sinks are a perfect way to bring unique styling and ultimate luxury to your bathroom vanity area. Probably the most luxurious versions of vessel sinks are created from stone like marble and granite. At Unique Vanities, we offer an entire line of stone vessel sinks for the bathroom in just about any shape and size you can imagine. We make it easy to find the perfect sink for your decor and counter. However, although we are confident you will find the perfect sink in our selection, it is up to you to select the right sink for your space. We have provided the buying guide below to help you make that selection.
Type of Mount
When it comes to vessel sink, the first thing you need to know is how you will be mounting the item. Most people assume a vessel sink will be top mounted, but this is not true. Some sinks are made especially for under mounting or to be partially recessed into the counter. Make sure you know what you want and purchase a sink that will meet those preferences. Check each listing in our online catalogue for information on how the sink can be mounted.
Size and Height
The sink also needs to fit your counter and space. Sizing requirements are two-fold. First, you need to determine if width and length will fit. This might include checking to see if the dimensions are compatible with counter cutouts for under sink mounting or simply verifying that the sink size is appropriate for sitting on top of your cabinet. Second, you need to check the depth of the sink. Is the sink deep enough to be functional and yet not so deep that it will not properly fit in your installation preference?
Faucet and Drain
It is important to keep fixtures in mind when purchasing any sink, especially a vessel sink. Top mount vessel sinks require a special faucet that will come up from the cabinet and fit over the sink edge. You should ensure your sink will work with existing fixtures or purchase a new faucet that fits your sink. Additionally, most stone vessel sinks do not come with a secondary overflow cutout. This means you will need a drain without an overflow.
Shape and Color
UniqueVanities offers stone vessel sinks in square, rectangle, round, oval and bowl-like shapes. We also offer granite, onyx, travertine and marble in a variety of hues. It is important to remember when ordering a sink created from natural stone that each piece will have slightly different elements and grains. This means the sink that arrives at your home may not look exactly like the one pictured in our catalogue. You should choose a sink based on the overall colors, not a specific element you see in the picture.
The final thing to consider when purchasing a sink of any type is overall plumbing. You have already decided the sink will fit with your fixtures and counter top, but you should double check all elements and specifications prior to making a purchase.
