Under Sink Protection – Bathroom sinks or basins are a major part of our lives. The purpose is for our private hygiene, but following the functionality of your sink will come the layout to fulfill your bathrooms decor. Bathroom sinks come in two distinct types. Then from both of these types come many different styles, sizes, shapes and colours.
Bathroom vanities are cabinets that will hold your toilet sink. Bathroom vanities include a single door, two doors, or one or two doorways using a row of drawers. The function of the bathroom vanity would be to supply you with storage for your bathroom and maintain that storage out of plain sight. The counter top for your bathroom vanity can be a typical counter with a pit for your bathroom sink, or a molded sink type counter top. Regardless of what design the counter top the sink will hook up to the drain and water the same manner. This will be using a mechanical pop up or drain gathering, and water lines to the tap.
Granite counter tops using an under mount sink are one of the nicest finishes you could put to a toilet. To put in an under mount toilet sink you’ll need the people you purchase the granite from to put in the sink in place when they install the counter top. They will drill the holes to accommodate your bathroom taps. After the sink is set and dried you can do your drain and water hook-ups. If you’ve got a ceramic or ceramic bathroom sink going into your toilet vanity you’ll have to use silicone to hold the sink into place. Also a molded counter top with a sink will have to be silicone to the peak of your bathroom vanity. Steel toilet sinks may have straps which hold the sink in place.
Granite countertops would be the second type of toilet sink. This type uses a pedestal to hold up the sink. The base is used to conceal the p-trap and the drain. Each of the pedestals that I have installed are white in colour. This will pretty much decide your other fixture’s colour. (toilet and shower or bathtub)
To install the base sink you’ll have to follow the instructions provided. These will let you know the elevation of the sink to put in the mount onto the wall. After installing the mount you could install the bathroom faucets and the drain. Then set the base set up, silicone the back of the sink and then put on the wall mount. This should permit the sink to sit down gently on the base too. Now screw in the lag bolts to pit the sink firmly.
With the two types of sinks to finish the setup hookup the drain and the water lines.
Wall mounted fashion
One other style of sink is your wall mounted fashion. This is just like the base except that there is no pedestal.
