Vessel sinks, commonly known as basin sinks are becoming the popular trend in the luxury kitchen. Vessel sinks sit atop instead of being below the countertop unlike the traditional sink basins. So they are more visible and make a major design statement. They are now produced in a variety of unique and kitchen friendly materials including stones, glass and wood.
There is a general belief that copper sinks are very difficult to maintain. There is some truth to that myth. You cannot expect to keep your copper kitchen sinks looking like a new shiny penny forever. If you allow your copper sink to age naturally to a beautiful variety of darker copper shades, you are going to have a kitchen sink envied by others. Copper sinks are everlasting if you take good care and do proper cleaning regularly to prevent the greening of the copper.
Most of the ceramic undermount kitchen sinks come in white finish. Such a finish is great because it can match any kind of kitchen décor. You can also order a custom made ceramic undermount sink to match the theme and design of the kitchen. You can also opt for butler sink styled sinks, which perfectly complement Victorian themed kitchens and homes. If you have a more rustic and countryside styled kitchen, then solid ceramic and rectangular shapes are more appropriate to suit such a decor.
The installation of a bottom mount ceramic kitchen sink however would be somewhat more difficult. In this situation the countertop material will be making the lip to the sink itself, thus the cut and finish need to be very accurate and tidy. Unfortunately, no matter how accurate, a small difference between sink opening and countertop material is always going to exists, and a flush and exact match is close to impossible, thus leaving a lip or small overhang is preferable, otherwise a good helping of silicone needs to be applied, somewhat retracting from the otherwise unique and classy finish.
