Although the bathroom is one of the smaller rooms in your home, it’s one of the most used rooms as well. Remodeling this space can bring a great deal of satisfaction. Are you aware that by just updating your handles and hardware, you are already well on your way to enhance the appearance of your bathroom?
To start this project, it’s best to come up with a budget and decide if you will be able to remodel the bathroom all the way or just a few fixtures at once, including:
Countertops can be made from different materials. Specific options like marble or granite can allow for an upscale type of look to your bathroom. Synthetic options are also a possibility because of their price; synthetic also allows for less pouring than a natural stone option and are least likely to stain.
Mounting Options – Sinks can be mounted a variety of ways; it depends on the vanity style and countertop. A drop-in is the first mounting style. The sink is then placed into a perfect-sized hole so it will fit completely against the surface. However, an under-mount option is installed right under the surface of the countertop, which will allow the bowl of the sink to start under the surface.
There are many other popular choices, which include: wall-mounted, vessels, and one-piece sinks. A one-piece sink is typically made out of porcelain and it comes with a pedestal base that is matching. Vessels usually have a unique type of appearance; they are made to look like a vessel or bowl sitting on the countertop. The vessel sinks usually come with their own integrated faucet system and vanity.
A wall-mounted sink works efficiently in small bathrooms or a ½ bathroom. This type of sink usually requires excess water supply, as well as extra drain line installation so they can be hidden behind a wall properly.
In general, the type of sink you would like to choose will determine which material it is made out of. Examples include vitreous porcelain, copper, marble, and glass.
