Without even a second thought, it’s easy to see why the bathroom is one of the most important parts of any property. Bathroom sinks are there for our cleanliness after going to the toilet, as well as for everyday self maintenance. There are so many options to choose from, and thankfully, Conwy Valley Plumbing can help.
A bathroom sink, sometimes known as a lavatory sink, is a bowl shaped fixture that can be used for a wide variety of things. This includes brushing your teeth, washing hands as well as many more things.
Although in the past, the main purpose of the bathroom area was purely functionality, in modern times people like to use them to define a specific style. This can range from a traditional or contemporary design, it’s all up to you.
More often than not, the wide range of bathroom sink design can be tough when it comes to an ultimate decision. After you have chosen a specific style that you like an suits your bathroom space, you have an important aspect to think of. How will that exact sink fit into the design space you currently have?
It can all depend on exactly what you planned on doing with the bathroom space you have. If you are having a total redecoration, then you have a blank canvas to work with. If you have an existing space, then it can take a little more time to decide on what is suitable for you.
Thankfully, here at Conwy Valley Plumbing, we are able to show you a wide range of bathroom sinks that may suit your tastes. If you are unsure on what sink is suitable for you, we are able to go out and make sure that the sink actually works with the environment it is installed in.
There are quite a few things that can affect whether you can have a sink in a certain area or not. This includes drains, vanity items, counter tops, shelves, and any items that can affect how they work. We can check out your bathroom space to see if anything may prevent a sink installation, and we have numerous options that can be used to work around any obstruction.
With bathroom sinks, there is a wide range of different materials to choose from. The different materials can completely change the aesthetic of a bathroom, especially if you’re going for a particular style.
Vitreous china is a popular material. It’s created with the use of different ceramic materials that are fired at an extremely high temperature. This forms a non-porous body. The surface is then coated with a ceramic glaze which will instantly fuse with the body.
Fireclay sinks are normally used in contemporary bathrooms. They are made with heat resistant clay. Fireclay sinks are very similar to vitreous sinks, in the fact that they are easy to break when exposed to a heavy impact.
A stainless steel sink can often be popular, as they create their very own style. They are generally available for a decent price, easy to use, incredibly durable and easy to clean. The majority of stainless steel sinks are created by drawing a sheet of steel over a dye. A stainless steel sink will resist damage from impacts compared to the previous two.
Copper sinks are used in properties that have more of a rustic feel to them. They have a unique appearance like no other. The red and brown look is something that can be appealing, especially in older styled buildings. Similar to stainless steel, copper is able to resist hard impacts. If any scratches do become apparent on this material, it’s incredibly easy to buff it out with a piece of sandpaper.
One of the great things about the copper material is that it is created with a variety of different materials that are fused together. Once they are fused together, they can be formed into a shape that is appropriate for a specific use. This means that a variety of different shapes can be created, making them ideal for bathrooms that may not want to follow the norm.
When creating a copper sink, thanks to the manufacturing process of composite materials, it’s possible to create a sink in a variety of different colours. Again, this can be a great way to make an interesting and unique design that catches the eye. It is important to say that the colour will be consistent throughout, so it’s not possible to create a multi coloured design.
A cast iron sink may be a preferable choice. They are normally coated with either porcelain or enamel, creating a look that is sharp and fresh. The porcelain can be tinted so that you can have interesting colours if you so wish it. They are fragile if dropped, as porcelain is made from glass.
All of these different materials are good for different uses. You may find that some are more appealing than others, but they can all be used to create a bathroom space that you can be proud of. As these materials have different characteristics, the method for cleaning them can be considerably different. We are able to speak you through how you can easily clean and maintain these different materials.
