Copper Custom Sink - Design Questions
Absolutely - Every copper sink we make is handcrafted and treated as a unique piece. For this reason, we can easily accommodate any design requirements (See our page on custom sinks) you may have for your kitchen, bar or copper bathroom sinks. We also specialize in making unique copper vases and decorative bowls, so if you have a special idea in mind, let us know. We are always open to new models and designs to add to our line and we will gladly help you find the copper sink that is right for your home. Our engravers can also make even the most intricate designs which you can match to your wall-paper or fabric.
Usually custom copper sinks are very expensive. If I order a custom copper sink from you, is it going to be more expensive than the "stock" copper sinks shown on your On-Line Catalog?
No - First, you are buying our hand made sinks directly from our workshop - no intermediaries to unnecessarily inflate the price. Second, since all of our sinks and artwork are hand-made, custom orders cost the same to make as any of our stock items. The price of our pieces depends not on whether it is a catalog item or not, but rather on the size, the engraving and the finish requested. To get a quote for a custom made sink, please contact us and we will be happy to help you further.
It takes us anywhere from one to three weeks to make a custom made copper sink, vase or mirror frame order, depending on the complexity of the order. Hand shaping copper sinks, vases or bowls usually takes us one week. Depending on the finish or engraving pattern you select, the order can take an additional week or two. Copper bathroom sinks are usually faster for us to make than bar or kitchen sinks. If you have a particular design in mind, please contact us and we will be happy to provide a firm quote and delivery information.
There are typically three types of copper bathroom sinks that we make - over the counter sinks, drop-in sinks, and under-mounted sinks. Over the counter bathroom sinks are typically in the form of a bowl which can either be placed over the counter, or recessed into the counter so that half of the sink is under the counter and the other half is over the counter. Drop-in copper sinks are installed through a hole in the counter and usually have a rim that can be engraved, decorated with a molded design, or left plain. Under-mounted copper sinks usually mount under the counter and the lip around the sink is used to bolt and secure the sink to the counter.
What other materials do you use for your sink designs?
On a limited basis, we can also make some silver plated sinks. In the future we hope to also offer "Cantera" and onyx sinks. Cantera stone is a hard sedimentary rock typical to central Mexico, and can be grey, green or pink in color. Onyx sinks usually come in light earth colors and white. Due to the cost and time consuming nature required to make these sinks, when we decide to make them available, we will do so on a custom-order basis only and currently do not carry them on our on-line catalog. View our custom sinks page for additional ideas.
Can you custom make light fixtures or other accessories to go with my copper sinks?
Yes - we sure can! Please let us know what light fixture you have in mind, and we will be happy to make anything you wish. Our artisans are very good at creating thematic designs that tie a room together.
Copper Sinks - Installation & Care
Our bathroom sinks normally do not have an overflow hole. However, on some models, if you would like us to install an overflow line, we can certainly accommodate your needs.
What kind of drain pipe do I need to install if the copper sink I want does not have an overflow?
You need to install a drain for use on a sink without an overflow. Several faucet and sink suppliers carry them, and your contractor or plumber should be familiar with these types of accessories.
In most cases, caring for our copper sinks and products is easy and straight-forward. Please visit our care instructions page for more details on caring for your sink or contact us and we will be happy to help you.
