Pros and cons Vessel Sinks

Today's article dives into the advantages and disadvantages of adding a vessel sink to your next bathroom remodeling project.

One of the biggest advantages is style. Adding a vessel sink really is something very unique, it has that wow factor when you see it. It’s not something that you see in every bathroom. In addition, they are very easy to install. It’s simply cutting a hole into the countertop, depending on what kind of countertop you have. For most projects it’s a very easy project for the do it yourselfer.

You also gain counter space by having the sink mounted on top. What’s really neat about is that because it’s so easy to install, you can easily change out the vessel sink in a year or two years down the road if you just wanted to change up the style of your overall bathroom.

A couple of things to take into consideration; some designers consider it a fad that might not be around for the long term. There can also be water and dirt that can get stuck in between the base of the vessel sink and the countertop. So that too is just something to take into consideration.

There can also be durability and sustainability issues. With vessel sinks, the edge is exposed. If it is a sink that you use day in and say out it may be more prone to potential cracks or damage. This is very rare, however.

A few other things you need to be aware of, they do require a special faucet. You will need a faucet that is tall enough for the water to fall into the bowl. Also you should consider the height of your vanity. You want the sink to be easy to reach. If the vanity is a standard size, some sinks may end up being too tall and a little difficult to use. But you can find vessels in all kinds of shapes and styles.
