The Humble Bathroom Sink Boring? Not a Chance

Added: 20 Mar 2015

Choosing the right bathroom sink for your project can be a bit of a nightmare because there’s simply so much choice these days.  In this blog post we want to help you make the right choice; no matter what size your bathroom is.

Bathroom Sinks for Small Spaces

When you’re choosing a bathroom sink for a small space you could be forgiven for imagining that your choices might be limited.  The good news is that this is not the case.  Here are some great choices:

 

Small Sinks

If you’re tight for space, then there’s no getting away from the fact that if you choose a small model sink, you’ll leave yourself with more space to be creative with other items.  That said, even a small bathroom sink can have a big impact.  A good styling idea, if you have sufficient space, is to choose two small bathroom sinks rather than one bigger option, because twin sinks will give you a modern and stylish feel.

 

Wall Mounted Sinks

If you have so little space in your bathroom that you don’t even have room for a countertop or surface around your sink, a small, wall mounted bathroom sink is the perfect solution.  Giving you space at floor level and taking up the minimum amount of room possible, this solution really does tick all your boxes.  The only thing you need to think about here is having access to a small shelf or storage area for soaps and toothbrushes etc.

 

Small Corner Sinks

Again if your space is really tight, corner bathroom sinks for small spaces can be a great idea.  Enabling you to make the most of your wall space for bigger items such as your toilet and shower, a small corner bathroom sink needn’t look out of place if you make the right choice of model.

 

Bathroom Sinks for all Spaces

Vessel Sinks

Vessel bathroom sinks have really come into their own in the last few years.  With their roots way back in pre-historic times when sinks were made from rock or wood and laid on a surface, these modern day versions ooze style and come in a whole range of materials, shapes and sizes so are well worthy of a place on your “wish” list.

 

Vanity Sinks

Vanity bathroom sinks are a perfect combination of a stylish sink plus efficient and effective storage.  Traditionally available with a cabinet that holds the sink, vanity bathroom sinks have evolved considerably over the past few years.  You can now choose from single or double floor based cabinets, stand alone cabinets or even suspended cabinets, which are a great way to get around space issues as well as being a really hygienic option.

 

Undermount Sinks

Undermount bathroom sinks again are a pretty recent addition to the modern-day bathroom sink armoury.  A really nice way to have plenty of surface space for toiletries, towels and all those daily grooming essentials, an undermounted bathroom sink sits neatly under a countertop creating a stylishly clean line for your whole sink area.  With a whole range of materials, shapes and sizes available, like most sink options, if you have the space, opt for matching, side-by-side models for maximum impact.

 

Wall Mounted Sinks

Wall mounted bathroom sinks are a dream come true for anyone who wants to achieve maximum floor space with minimum fuss.  As the name suggests, this bathroom sink option is fixed to the wall with no need to touch the floor whatsoever.  The effect created by this solution is that the sink is almost suspended in the room and they do their job efficiently and stylishly without making any sort of song and dance about it.  Once more, something to plan if you’re choosing this option is including some sort of shelving or storage area near the sink for toiletry essentials.

 

Square Sinks

The shape of bathroom sink you choose is likely to be driven more by personal taste than anything else.  There’s no getting away from the fact that some people adore curves and others seek out clean lines and angles for their interiors.  Square sinks come in a whole range of guises, with pedestal, wall mounted, undermount, vanity and vessel to choose from, so the good news is that if you’re a clean lines and angles person, you really will be spoilt for choice when it comes to square sinks.

 

Pedestal Sinks

Pedestal bathroom sinks are one of the classic bathroom fixtures and have been around for many, many years.  That said, just because you choose a pedestal sink, that doesn’t mean that your overall look needs to be classic or traditional.  There are plenty of modern styles as well as traditional pedestal sink options available in all shapes and sizes, so with this choice, you really will have a broad range of solutions at your fingertips.
