Bathroom sink vanities are wide and they are deep. And they have swinging doors, as do bathrooms themselves. Unless you are replacing an existing vanity with the exact same size piece, make absolutely sure that the width and depth still work in the space, especially as they relate to the swing of the main door, closet doors and the vanity doors and drawers. Take into consideration the moldings around doorways and the amount of space needed around the toilet. Taller and wider people need more space in all directions. Finally, pay close attention to the plumbing that services the vanity, especially if the size is changing, or you are adding a new sink. A few inches' difference in either direction will turn a standard DIY installation project into a call to a licensed plumber.
Before settling on an undermount bathroom sink, keep in mind that they can be difficult to install. If you are replacing the whole vanity or countertop, consider a one-piece unit that already has the sink attached. Choosing from the variety of colors and shapes is obviously a matter of personal preference. However, there are some important considerations when choosing between various materials.
Glass sinks may not seem like a good idea, but innovation has made it where the glass is thicker and more durable. It can handle stains, scratches and shocks from things hitting it, which means it has a better durability and long-lasting time span as compared to thin glass. It’s a current trend that’s picking up.
These sinks are growing in popularity regardless of bathroom size. They give greater flexibility to position the sink at whatever height you find most comfortable. The disadvantage of a wall-hung sink is the piping’s visibility. However, it will allow you extra wall surface for installation and ensure the room has necessary room for easier navigation.
