Width of washbasin countertop and other related knowledge
The sink is something we often use, so for our daily life, the sink is a more important place, we must understand it.
The size of the sink and the width of the countertop
The size of the sink has the smallest control, the minimum width is 550mm, In order to save space, the 600mm set bathroom has reduced the sink to about 300mm, but even if this is done, it is impossible for the sink to be only 300mm wide. The sink must be prominent, which makes it inconvenient to place things. The other key is to leave a clearance of 550mm from the center of the washbasin to the walls on both sides, that is to say, there must be a clearance of 1100 to put your countertop, otherwise it is lame to use, so you can integrate everyone’s opinions. . In order to be more economical, some people don’t even need a washbasin, so they need a floor-to-ceiling washbasin, just put a soap or something.
However, one of the more commonly used sizes is the undercounter basin: countertop 850mm, and above counter basin: countertop 750mm. This size is the standard size for bathroom sink installation, but we can look at it according to our actual situation. If the average height of the people in the family is relatively high, then of course the design should be higher. If the average height of the family is not very high, then it is recommended to install the bathroom sink lower.
Maintenance of stone sinks
Granite: Granite is a very durable and elastic stone. For regular cleaning, you can use a soapy nylon brush to scrub in a circular path, and then rinse thoroughly. Regular cleaning will help prevent water stains from hardening. If you want to get rid of stubborn stains, you can try non-abrasive cleaners such as dish soap, bleach, etc. Be sure to avoid using strong alkalis such as ammonia and drain the water to prevent chemicals from entering the sink with the water. If you encounter rust problems caused by iron ions contained in water, cookware, etc., you can use a detergent containing oxalic acid to remove it. Do not use bleach directly on the granite.
Marble: Marble has an elegant luster. Because the stone has pores, it is difficult to maintain the luster of the marble. Sealing helps prevent the stone from absorbing liquid, but acidic liquids such as orange juice, lemon, soda, various foods, and common household cleaners can corrode the stone. For this reason, do not use acid cleaners on marble. Wet glass with a trace of acidic liquid can cause stubborn water stains. To avoid water stains, rinse and dry the sink after each use. The only way to remove corrosion and water stains is to ask professionals to re-grind and re-polish. For routine care, you can use soft, bleach-containing liquid detergents or ordinary household detergents.
The purchase of ceramic sinks

There are several types of green bodies for ceramic products: kaolin, quartz, feldspar, ball clay and alumina. After being heated at high temperature. The clay is porcelainized and the glazed surface is fused, thus achieving the effect of impermeability, firmness and luster.
The glaze quality of the ceramic washbasin is the key link in the purchase of ceramic washbasins.

At the same time, feel it with your hands, it should be smooth and delicate. The high-quality glazed 'honeycomb' is extremely small, smooth and dense, and not easy to get dirty. Water absorption is also an important indicator of the quality of ceramic washbasins. The lower the water absorption, the better. Because after water is sucked into the ceramic, the ceramic will swell to a certain extent, and it is easy to absorb the dirt and peculiar smell in the water into the ceramic. According to national regulations, sanitary ceramics with a water absorption rate of less than 3% are high-end ceramics, and the water absorption rate of some high-end brand washstands is less than 0.5%.
Finally, pay attention to that when designing the width of the washbasin countertop, there must be enough distance between the two basins, otherwise when using Will affect each other.
