When it comes to bathroom design, every element should be carefully chosen to create a space that is both functional and visually stunning. One such element that can elevate the ambiance of your bathroom is a glowing polished concrete vessel sink. Imagine stepping into your bathroom and being greeted by a mesmerizing glow emanating from your sink. This innovative design option not only adds a unique touch to your space but also showcases the beauty of concrete as a versatile material. In this blog post, we will explore the process of creating a glowing polished concrete vessel sink and how it can transform your bathroom.
Step 1: Preparation and Gluing the Ultra Glow Stones: To begin the creation of your glowing concrete vessel sink, you will need an appropriate sink form. Once you have selected the form, it's time to bring in the magic of AGT™ 1/2" Aqua Blue Ultra Grade Glow Stones. These stones possess a remarkable ability to absorb and emit light, making them the perfect choice for creating a luminous effect.
Using a water-soluble glue, carefully attach the Ultra Glow Stones to the sides of the sink form. The design possibilities are endless, allowing you to experiment with different patterns or arrangements to suit your aesthetic preferences. Be sure to allow the glue to dry completely before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2: Pouring the Concrete: With the Ultra Glow Stones securely glued to the sink form, it's time to pour the concrete. Choose a high-quality concrete mix that is specifically formulated for countertops or vessel sinks. This type of concrete mix ensures a smooth finish and durability.
Pour the concrete mixture into the sink form, ensuring that it is evenly distributed. Take care to eliminate any air pockets by tapping the form gently or using a vibrating tool. Once the concrete has been poured, allow it to cure according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Step 3: Removing the Forms and Wet Polishing: After the concrete has cured, it's time to unveil your creation. Carefully remove the sink form, taking care not to damage the concrete. The Ultra Glow Stones, now embedded within the concrete, will be revealed, giving your sink a mesmerizing appearance.
To achieve a polished and smooth finish, wet polishing is recommended. Wet polishing involves using diamond abrasive pads in a sequential order to gradually refine the surface of the concrete. This process not only enhances the overall appearance but also ensures a durable and easy-to-maintain surface.
A glowing polished concrete vessel sink is a striking addition to any bathroom. By incorporating AGT™ 1/2" Aqua Blue Ultra Glow Stones into the design and following the necessary steps, you can achieve a stunning centerpiece that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The glow emitted by the stones adds a touch of enchantment to your space, creating a unique and immersive experience every time you enter your bathroom. With its durability and versatility, a polished concrete vessel sink is a timeless choice that will continue to delight you for years to come.
