Designing a bathroom can easily become a truly daunting task, especially if space and cost are of concern. There’s a whole multitude of different decisions that need to be taken when we’re talking about a bathroom redesign.
So usually this (relatively) simple process complicates things to decide, like choosing a faucet, to proper plumbing and selecting a vanity. The following tips are designed to help you make the most of your new bathroom looks…
Traditionally a bathroom sink uses a single central-mount faucet.
Which, in turn, has a single lever or two handles. Central-mount models are good for three-hole sinks specifically. So keep this in mind when you’ll be assessing your bathroom’s styling.
My plumbing is all screwed up. Because it turns out, I do not own a garbage disposal.
Then again, the wall mounted faucets have spouts that are longer and are designed specifically to extend far enough over the bowl. That’s so they reach the vessel-style or freestanding sink.
As your third option for a bathroom faucet, single-hole faucets have both the spout and handles combined into one universal fixture.
This kind of solution is a perfect way of dealing with the sinks which are small in size.
Choosing a vanity
If your bathroom’s space is restricted to a small size, then the vanity provides a great opportunity to cut on some extra space.
A pedestal or wall mount sink will work just great, in a situation when space is a concern.
An under mount sink is relatively easy to clean up, simply because those do not collect much dirt.
However, you’ll need a waterproof countertop. Under mount sinks can also be pricey and more difficult to get installed, so keep this little obstacle in mind when purchasing it…
Is porcelain a smart investment?
While without any doubt porcelain is the classic material for bathroom sinks, it is not the only option out there….
Glass and stainless steel sinks often come at a much more attainable, reasonable price level. Also, damage-wise, they’re also much ore durable long-term…
Those are also the most popular choices for modern designs such as vessel sinks that look like bowls and pitchers.
It is important to remember, that sinks made out of a glass are too fragile and will not live through any heavy object hitting them or falling down at it…
