Vessel Sink Faucets

Updated on June 06, 2012

If you’re building a home or remodeling an existing one and have made the decision to use a vessel sink in your bathroom or kitchen, you’ve made an excellent choice! Your investment will more than pay for itself if and when you decide to sell your house. It probably wasn’t easy to choose from among all the styles, shapes, colors, and materials of the sinks. Sorry to tell you this, but it won’t be any easier to make your final selection on vessel sink faucets! Plumbing Point dot com has a beautiful selection.

Since vessel sinks sit above the countertop, traditional faucets won’t work. You’ll need special vessel faucets. That’s a good thing! These vessel sink faucets are much more visually appealing than are the old traditional water spout and the stubby, boring hot and cold handles or knobs. Vessel faucets aren’t mounted on the sink itself – they’re mounted on another base, separate from the vessel sink, or they can also be mounted on a wall. And since the faucet has to be tall enough to accommodate the height of the sink, they’re usually between twelve and eighteen inches tall. This definitely gives the sink-faucet combination a more dramatic look.

As the choices for vessel sinks have vastly expanded, so has the range of vessel sink faucets. Now, consumers have the choice of gold, copper, chrome, nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, brass, or a combination of glass and metal. In addition, vessel faucets are available in polished, brushed, and matte finishes. No matter what style or color vessel sink you select, you’ll be able to find vessel sink faucets that go beautifully with your sink and complement your décor.

Homeowners also have the choice of a faucet with a single hot-and-cold lever, or two separate controls for hot and cold water. Some of the vessel faucets are ultra-modern, while others resemble old-fashioned pump handles. Vessel faucets are also available with porcelain hot and cold water handles, reminiscent of yesteryear. Also, the gracefully arched vessel faucets give you lots of room underneath for washing your hands, or for rinsing and washing food and cookware if you have one in your kitchen.

One of the most intriguing among all the choices of vessel faucets is the waterfall faucet. With a quick flip of the lever, a wide sheet of water cascades gently into the vessel sink, resembling a real waterfall. Imagine the aesthetics of a waterfall faucet raining down into a natural stone vessel sink. This is a sensual treat to your eyes, your ears, and your hands! Like the other types of vessel faucets, the waterfall faucets are available in many styles, ranging from vintage to contemporary and everything in between.

Before you make a final decision on your vessel faucet, think about the look and mood you’re trying to achieve in your bathroom or kitchen. You’ll be surprised at how much the vessel faucet can change the look of your vessel sink and the entire room. It will definitely be a focal point, so choose carefully!

      It seems as if the styles in home remodeling and fashion are taking a hint from the past. This ressurection of old styles reminds me of what my mom used to say, "znothing ever goes out of style, it's just reinvented."

      The look of kitchen or bathroom can be enhanced through the incorporation of a vessel sink to suit the interior of the room. A beautiful vessel sink rising over the counter can make the room look very attractive.
