A glass sink may not seem like the smartest option for your bathroom, but it’s surprisingly durable if installed appropriately. Glass sinks—particularly vessel sinks that sit atop the vanity—also bring an elegance and modern Zen aesthetic that other sinks just can’t match. Here is some more information.
On average, glass bathroom sinks cost between $300 and $700. High-end, custom-made glass sinks could potentially cost more than $1,000. For help with purchasing and installation, get in touch with a licensed professional.
Surprisingly, glass sinks are said to hold up better than standard porcelain sinks. However, they do tend to chip, so it’s suggested that they only be used in luxury bathrooms or bathrooms with intermediate use.
When it comes to maintaining your glass bathroom sink, it’s essential to use the utmost care. Regularly clean the surface with warm water or glass cleaner, and never use water that is too hot to the touch, as this can cause the glass to crack. Also, avoid using abrasive cleaners—these will only dull the appearance of the glass.
Surprisingly, no. According to Consumer Reports, tempered glass sinks aren’t affected by such staining agents as drain cleaner and nail-polish remover.
The majority of glass sinks are vessel sinks which sit on top of the vanity countertop.
Glass was first used by sailors from the Phoenician lands, and quickly become popular in jewelry-making and other similar trades. Eventually it was used to create bowls, vases, and centuries later, to construct the glass sinks we see today.
