Episode Summary

EDIT
Vessel sinks are very popular in contemporary bathroom design. However, there are a few important details to consider to make sure the sink is placed correctly and the tap is compatible with the sink. The first detail to consider is the height of the vanity. Typically, a vanity is 32 inches off the floor, but because a vessel sink sits on top of the vanity, the height of the cabinet may need to be lowered so that sink is not too high. The second detail to consider is the location of the tap. Some vessels allow the tap to be top mounted on the sink itself while others require the tap to be mounted behind the sink on the counter. If the tap is top mounted, you need to make sure that the lever handle does not hit the mirror or backsplash when the tap is turned on. If the tap is mounted behind the vessel, you may need a deeper counter top to make everything fit front to back. Finally, you will need to make sure that the vessel and tap are compatible so there is not a lot of splash created when the water hits the sink. This is particularly important for wall mounted taps. Ideally, these should be mounted so the spout is no more than a few inches above the rim of the vessel after the sink is installed.moreless
