Creating utensils, art, and jewelry from copper is a Mexican tradition dating back to Pre-Columbian times. For generations, Indians of Central Mexico mined the metal and created objects both utilitarian and beautiful. A handmade Mexican copper sink can lend warmth and unique style to the kitchen or bath. Available in a myriad of shapes and styles, a beautiful Mexican copper sink fits with many decorating styles adding grace and value to a home.
Hand crafted copper sinks are available in a wide range of shapes and styles appropriate for a bathroom, a kitchen or a bar providing distinction to any room when they are used. Continue reading
After shopping at various decorative bathroom supply stores, home improvement stores, and even design centers, you have found several small bathroom sink solutions that will fit into your limited space. Some may be out of your budget and others may be shockingly inexpensive, but before paying for anything, consider how the sink will be used.
For a high use area, small sinks made from porcelain are the most reasonably priced, and the easiest to maintain. Porcelain is very resistant to staining and the finish is durable enough to withstand years of hard scrubbing. Porcelain is no longer the plain, boring choice of decades gone by. There are many options of porcelain sink colors as well as unique looks available on the market.
Small spaces require special considerations as to where the sink will be mounted. If it is in a vanity, small bathroom sink cabinets that fit the space can be hard to find. This is especially true for a small corner bathroom sink or vanity, and it may be necessary to have a unit custom-made if one can not be found. Continue reading
Corner bathroom vanities, as their name implies, are designed to fit into the corner of a room, flush with a wall. They may contain a single sink or act as a dressing table, particularly in bathrooms already equipped with a pedestal sink that offers no counter space.
A vanity that is designed to accommodate a sink, or one that is sold with a built in sink unit is called a corner bathroom vanity vessel sink. This is the ideal option for those with a water line that runs through the corner of a bathroom, or a home in which the sink was initially placed in a corner. In most cases, these units are sold with a built-in sink, though it may be possible to replace this basin with the basin of your choice. Continue reading
The use of copper for the wash basin is not a brand new concept. Before the modern manufacture of vitreous china sinks, copper was one of the better choices available and was mined for use in many objects, not just the bathroom and kitchen where we so often see it today. A modern copper vessel sink integrates the traditional with the contemporary.
Accustomed to seeing the impenetrable surfaces of vitreous china sinks, one may question how practical a copper sink is for even a modest amount of regular use, let alone in an area that is visited several times a day. The answer is simple: it’s virtually maintenance free. Copper sinks do not require any chemical cleaners. Acidic substances should also be kept away from the copper vessel bathroom sink.

These sinks may also be referred to as pedestal vessel sinks. You’ll find them incorporated into modern house construction more and more often. Both wall-mounted vessel sinks and pedestal links have become popular because they save significant space compared to traditional bathroom sinks with vanities. This smaller space footprint also often makes for a simpler and cheaper installation. Bathroom pedestal sinks work great in smaller bathrooms like powder rooms.
While a classic pedestal sink can still be found, a broad variety of colors and shapes are now available in all manner of contemporary design. You no longer must adhere to the classic oval or round pedestal sink. I’ve seen square pedestal sinks that look great in the right bathroom design. The only limitation you might have with a pedestal bathroom sink is that they can only be about 55 to 65 centimeter in diameter or width. Anything wider will look odd upon the column or stem.

With this Bathroom Sinks Guide, I will address the many options you have as well as the many variables you must consider before making your choice.
There is a wide range of sinks that you can buy that will suit any bathroom. The most traditional sinks are constructed from porcelain and are round, oval or square. Porcelain is the most popular material because it is smooth, strong and waterproof. If you want a personalized sink then it is possible to have custom-made sinks made to your color and liking. This is a more expensive option than buying off the floor.
The more modern bathroom sinks can be made from glass or metal. Glass sinks can be made with a colorful and unique look. Metal sinks can be constructed from brass, chrome, copper or stainless steel. While these are more expensive than porcelain sinks they can look fantastic in more modern bathrooms.
