A guide to buying a small bathroom sink

Decorating a small bathroom and adding fixtures inside it, can be a bit challenging. Finding the right bath sinks, bathroom showers, plumbing accessories and bath cabinets, which fit perfectly into your small space is essential to avoid making your place look cramp and uncomfortable. To help you find the right furnishings for your bath, here are some guides to buying bathroom sinks.

Sink configuration

Before you attempt to buy a small sink, you should first consider your counter space and the kind of faucet, plumbing taps and other plumbing accessories that you want to go with the sink. Do not just buy sink or faucet that is on sale, or you might end up returning a perfectly good bargain later on. Remember that some types of sinks do not match with certain types of faucets, so study carefully the configuration of your sink and faucets. Do some research and ask for help from experts if you are not certain as to which faucet fits into certain types of sinks.

Mounting and plumbing

Wall-mounted sinks Sinks can be mounted on walls, pedestals and counter-tops. Wall-mounted sinks have no floor support and its drain is tucked into the bathroom walls, which make them space-efficient and ideal for small bathrooms.
Pedestal mounted skins
Pedestal mounted sinks, on the other hand, are mounted directly into your bathroom floor and its plumbing connection is hidden inside the pedestal.
Like the wall-mounted sinks, the pedestal sinks do not take up too much space and can easily fit into small bathrooms. However, these two types of sinks do not usually provide you with enough counter-top space to hold your toiletries and other things. Counter-top mounted sinks As for the counter-top mounted sinks, these types of sinks are usually tucked into wall-supported vanities. Although counter-top mounted sinks may look good and they provide ample counter-top space to hold your bathroom supplies, they can take up much space in your bathroom.

Sink material and design

Bathroom sinks come in different shapes, colours, designs and materials, so you need to find a sink, which matches the overall design of your place. For instance, if your home is made of solid bricks or adobe, you might want to invest in matching bath sinks. Just make sure that you know how to properly maintain your sink to make it last long. Note that certain types of sinks need special care, so check the cleaning instructions before you purchase anything.
