Niki’s Glass handmade glass sinks have become the hottest trend and latest must-have for luxury custom homes and spa’s. Our glass designers can advice you on how to incorporate lighting from underneath and above to accentuate these stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces of glass art, which work equally well in traditional or contemporary settings. When purchasing a glass sink from Niki Design and Glass Studio, you can be confident that your glass sink design is not a production house piece, but rather, an exclusive one-of-a-kind piece of art.
Niki’s standard sink thicknesses are 19mm (3/4)”. The sinks can be made into whole vanity, double bowl sink, or single round bowl sink with custom colors and textures.
Sink mountings are client specified. Your sink can be installed in or above cabinets; it can be free standing or installed on one of our manufactured bases. Don’t want a manufactured base? How about installing your sink on a granite, marble, or glass countertop, instead? Our design team will be happy to explore the possibilities with you.
Allow yourself to be the creative force behind your own glass masterpiece and or let us help guide you in the creation of your special assignment.
What is the difference between a “Vessel”, a “Drop In”, an “Over Mount” and an “Under Mount”?
• “Vessel Sinks” – Sinks that sit on top of a surface. They can also be pedestal mounted, half mounted or they can function as a “Drop In”.
• “Drop In/Partial Mount Sinks” – are usually set into a pre-cut counter top either partially or completely.
“Over Mount Sinks”, also referred to as “Rimmed Sinks”, are designed to be “set in” to the counter top.
• “Under Mounted Sinks” – are for mounting beneath your counter top surface.
• Drain assemblies must be of a type that do not hold water and must be hand-tightened only. (Strainer Drain Assembly)
• Tighten just until the silicone sealer begins to ooze out. Do not over tighten. Use silicone instead of plumbers putty to seal.
• We recommend crystal-clear silicone or polyurethane sealers.
• A silicone seal should be used between the sink and counter
How should I care for/clean my blown glass sink?
To avoid scratching, scouring or dulling the glossy surface of the glass:
• Use a soft cloth with soap and/or water, glass cleaner, or any other non-abrasive cleaner.
• Vinegar will help to remove hard water spots.
• Do not use ‘Brillo’ pads, scouring powders, or anything at all abrasive.
Glass Sinks can be customized in any shape, size, color or texture.
