Vessel sinks are a great way to bring an elegant look to your bathroom. One of the greatest things about vessel sinks is that you can use them in almost any style. From sleek and modern to classic and traditional, vessel sinks bring a unique fit and functionality to any room. When doing a complete bathroom remodel or just replacing a bathroom vanity, a vessel sink can make a major impact both in style and usage. It will be a change that gives a much updated look and feel. At UniqueVanities, we make it easy to outfit your new or remodeled bathroom with a lovely vessel sink by offering a range of supporting vanities, stands and cabinets. Our line of vessel sink cabinets offers a range of style and sizes equal to our selection of sinks. In order to help you pick the right item for your bathroom, we have provided the buying guide below.
No matter what type of piece you purchase for your bathroom, you have to make sure it fits your space. If you already have a vanity and you are replacing it with something new, then you can just measure that piece and ensure the new item is the same size or smaller. If you are fitting a new bathroom, then you will need to measure the area you have open. Start along the wall and measure side to side. Remember to account for other elements within the bathroom and for the opening and closing of doors. This measurement will be your width. Next, decide how far from the wall the vanity can come without affecting movement in the room. That is your depth. You may also want to consider height, as we do offer a few different heights in our selection of vessel cabinets. Within the descriptions of each item at the site are detailed dimensions so it is easy to match these up with the measurements in the room.
Style and Finishing
Once you know how big the vanity can be, you want to decide the style. Do you want an antique or traditional look, or would you rather go with something modern or contemporary? Our selection provides ample items in any category. You can also alter the style of a piece somewhat by choosing from different counter tops, sinks and fixtures. With the many types to choose from, it is easy to find just the perfect match for the décor in the bathroom. It is also a good idea to make sure it matches the styling of the rest of the house. The vanity is often the focal point of the bathroom and it does get a lot of traffic in many homes.
Materials and Maintenance
All of the items sold through Unique Vanities are made with the highest quality material. Natural wood is used to manufacture some of the pieces; others are made of durable MDF that is covered with laminate that is easy to clean with common household products. The real wood finishes can be maintained with furniture polish or lemon oil to protect the natural material in a moist environment like the bathroom. With just a little care, these vanities will look great for many years to come.
After narrowing down your selection to size and style, you will want to consider what sort of storage options you might need. Storage options in the vanity selections at UniqueVanities.com range from drawers and cabinets to open shelving and secondary storage pieces that can be purchased separately in mix and match fashion. In considering the type of storage options you may need for your vanity, you should think about what you normally store in your vanity. What items do you need handy on a regular basis and what would be the best way to hold them? In addition, you should look at whether or not you have additional storage in your bathroom such as a linen cabinet or shelf area. This will drive some of your decision regarding vanity storage. Several of the manufacturers use a uniquely design soft close hinge for the cabinet doors and drawers. This will make a difference on busy mornings when several people are using the space to get ready for the day.
Finally, you should also be aware of your plumbing and technical needs. You need to ensure the fixtures, sink and existing plumbing will all work together in a functional way. You may also want to consider whether the vanity will block electrical items like outlets or switches. All of the vanity bases sold at this website come with a pre-cut opening in the back. This makes it much easier to begin installation. The opening will fit around the existing water lines and drain pipes to make it easy to attach. The counter tops also have a predrilled hole for the faucet. There are several models in this collection that include the faucet, sometimes there are choices in finish or styles to best customize the look or to get one to match the plumbing fixtures already present in the room. With vessel style sinks it is important to get the proper size and type of faucet so that it clears the basin for proper usage. Installation can be done by an experienced homeowner or a professional plumber or handyperson can be hired to complete the job.
