Basin Installation


1.  Integral:
 
 
 
2. Undermounted:
 
 
 
3. Self-Rimming:
 
 
 
4. Tile-in:

 
 
The sink and countertop are made from the same material. Whether you use this type of installation in your bathroom or kitchen, the result is a smooth and sleek look.
 
For a modern look, try installing an undermounted sink. It creates more or less the same feel as the integral installation, but the sink is attached underneath the countertop.
 
With this type of sink installation, the rimmed edge of the sink is mounted over the countertop.
 
Similar to the undermounted sink installation, but specifically used for tiled surfaces. This design shows no visible separation between the sink and the tiled surface.

 

Basin Material Composition

 
Current trends favor plain white basins, but there are many more materials out of which basins are now being formed.
 
 
Ceramic and Porcelain:
 
Ceramic and Porcelain basins are widely used. The advantage of a ceramic or porcelain vessel sink is that they are extremely easy to clean and are quite durable.
 
 
Glass:
 
Glass is by far the most popular vessel sink material. It is available in thousands of different color combinations and many even feature printed images between the layers of glass. It’s easy to clean and maintain which is a big advantage; however glass sinks are also fairly easy to break. Improper installation, over tightening of the drain, quick temperature changes or just a straight out impact could cause a glass vessel to crack or shatter. It is important to note that if you do select a glass vessel sink, make sure it is made of tempered glass because non tempered glass could definitely do some damage to you or your counter top if it ever shattered. 
 
 
Resin:
 
Resin based basins molded in attractive shapes can offer a natural and rustic look, often creating excitement with darker hues and stony textures. 
 
 
Wood:
 
Wood basins are softer than ceramic and steel so things do not get broken or chipped in them. As hand crafted works of art created from natural wood each wood sink will have its own unique finish and may not be exactly as per specifications.
