Glass Sinks

We use only tempered glass for our vessel and undermount glass sinks, meaning the glass is processed by controlled thermal and chemical treatments to increase strength and durability. Tempered glass is safer because it crumbles into small granular chunks rather than jagged shards if the sink is ever damaged. Our glass sinks can handle very high temperatures and because glass is non-porous, it will not absorb odor or stains. This makes glass a very low maintenance and sanitary material choice for a sink.

Undermount sinks sit below the countertop without exposing the rim and are popular due to the glamorous appeal and functionality they offer. The sink is clamped to the material from below and silicone-based sealants are used to ensure a waterproof seal between the sink and countertop. Vessel sinks are free-standing, meaning that the sink sits directly on the surface of the countertop. They are popular choices because of their ability to transform your bathroom decor from ordinary to extraordinary. Since the sinks sit higher, special vessel faucets with taller spouts are available for vessel sinks.

Features & Benefits
Colored

Colored glass is achieved by adding metal oxides to the powdered glass mixture before it is melted and formed into a sink.

Frosted

Glass is "frosted" after the bowl is created by sandblasting the glass surface with hydrofluoric acid until it has an opaque appearance.

Printed

Some of our sinks have a printed film, foil, or paint on the underside of the sink bowl that is covered by glass on the inside of the bowl.

Textured

Glass is heated to extremely high temperatures and then molded to attain the desired textures, shapes, or patterns.
