If you are in a situation where your home has a tiny bathroom, whether it is your main or a second facility, you know how frustrating finding the right fixtures for your minute space is. Between a tub or shower, sink, vanity and toilet, the room may quickly leave no room for a person. There are ways to save space in a small bathroom, and one of the best is to consider a small compact vanity unit and basin. You do not have to sacrifice style for space, though. In fact, your options for small basins are quite plentiful.
Three main choices are available for compact sinks. These include: Pedestal, Corner, and Wall-Hung Sinks; these are going to be your best bet when choosing something space saving. Pedestal sinks offer elegance and beauty with quite a bit of space saved. A standard pedestal can save quite a bit of space since it does not include a vanity, and many companies even make small ones if you need any more room. These pedestals are offered in many different designs to suite your own personal style.
Corner sinks allow the storage option of a vanity, but are made to be snuggled into the corner of a small bathroom. They are available in a number of types, including corner pedestals, corner wall mounts and more. Again, you can find many styles and colors.
Finally, the wall mount sink can be an enormous space saver since it requires no support legs, and all plumbing is built into the wall. If you are in dire need of space, a wall mount can be the perfect choice for your bathroom.
A few things to keep in mind when choosing a compact sink: make sure you are not cutting out too much space. You want one that is usable, and if you choose something too diminutive, you will not even have room to wash your hands! Manufacturers are making compact sinks in the tiniest of size, so be careful and make sure you are purchasing the right sink for your needs. Also, smaller sinks use the same faucets and fixtures that regular sinks do. So, when you pick out your faucet, make sure to choose one that does not overpower your new compact sink. A small sink with a huge faucet would look unwieldy and could be quite unhandy to use.
