Small Bathroom Sinks

One of the best ways to improve the space in small bathrooms is by changing bulky bathroom furniture units and installing small bathroom sinks. Immediately, the illusion of more space is created. Bathroom sinks have come a long way in design and space creativity. Older bathroom sinks used to take much needed space or just did not fit properly in extra small bathrooms. Small bathroom sinks were just used as a necessary fixture for the minimal space without having a decorative purpose or even try to convey a mood in the space - it was mostly a matter, of "what will fit" instead of function and decor.

Many new constructions these days pay more attention to bathroom spaces and new bathrooms are more ample. However, there are plenty of small bathrooms in beautiful older or historic homes, as well as small city apartments and lofts. In these spaces, the need for small bathroom sinks to improve the actual room space works wonders.

Small Bathroom Sinks

Many small bathrooms sinks are pedestal sinks which are great for its simple lines giving the space a more clean and organized look. Other fixtures are just small bathroom sinks that attach to a wall, without a pedestal. These are the ultimate space saver, but also come in many attractive designs and colors, as well as beautiful shapes to enhance any decor. Some wall mounted sinks have built in towel bars for convenience. Others are shaped square, or shaped like vessels atop a pedestal or vanity. Others are mounted on a small and slim furniture piece, while other small bathroom sinks will just be attached as one whole unit (small cabinet and sink).

Many just mount atop a cabinet in an overcounter style. Corner lavatory sinks are perfect because they make excellent use of corner space improving functionality. Wall hung basins are another excellent way to maximize space in small bathrooms. One great piece is a small wall console that attaches to the wall, containing a series of storage cabinets and attached small bathroom sink. This piece is slender (around six inches in depth), takes care of storage issues, and fits perfectly, mounted in a wall.

Today, small bathroom sinks come in a variety of materials and finishes - glass, copper, resin, vitreous china, hammered copper with a nickel finish, stainless steel, tempered glass, travertine stone, marble, frosted glass, ceramic, oil rubbed bronze, and many other materials.

No matter the decor and room size there is a small bathroom sink perfect for it.
