Those of you looking for something catchy and unique for your NYC bathroom remodeling plans may be interested in wooden sinks. The normal reaction to hearing about wooden sinks would be along the lines of “won’t that break?” Modern wooden sinks are actually quite durable and are designed to withstand the daily abuse any bathroom sink would go through.
Wooden sinks are available in many designs and can blend in with several different themes. They are ideal for bathrooms looking for a rustic, modern, and natural theme just to name a few. Most wooden sinks are also easy to clean and will not require the maintenance you may assume it needs.
These kinds of sinks are usually made out of solid teak wood but are also available in different kinds of wood or even combinations of wood. They are all given a special finish which will resist water. There are big advantages to using teak wood; one example is that it will never leak since it has natural waterproofing properties. One other advantage to teak is that it also has antiseptic properties, making it more hygienic than your average sink.
There are, however, a few things you should take note of when using wooden sinks in your NYC bathroom remodeling.
- Avoid leaving water standing in the sink overnight.
- Wipe away excess soap suds after using the sink as the chemicals within the soap may cause discoloration.
- Do not use abrasive cleaning materials for the sink, opt instead for soft sponges.
- Avoid products that contain ammonia as they may damage the finish of the sink.
Wooden sinks are either made out of one solid piece or are put together from many individually crafted pieces. A wooden sink is quite unique and is sure to make a fine addition for your NYC bathroom remodeling.
