3 Tips for Redesigning Your Bathroom

Designing a bathroom can be a challenging task, especially if space and cost are concerns. There are many decisions that go into a bathroom redesign, from choosing a faucet, to proper plumbing and selecting a vanity. The following tips are designed to help you make the most of your new bathroom design:

Faucet Selection

  • Many sinks use a central-mount faucet that use a single lever or two handles. Central-mount models are appropriate for three-hole sinks specifically.

  • Wall mount faucets have long spouts that extend over the bowl of a vessel-style or freestanding sink.

  • Single-hole faucets combine the spout and handles into one fixture, which are ideal for small sinks 

    and more modern, streamlined designs.

Choosing a vanity

  • If you have a small bathroom, the vanity provides a great opportunity to save space. A pedestal or wall mount sink will work nicely if space is a concern.

  • An under mount sink is relatively easy to clean up since they don't collect much dirt, but you'll need a waterproof countertop. Under mount sinks can also be pricey and more difficult to install.

Is porcelain a wise investment?

While porcelain is a classic material for bathroom sinks, it is not the only option available.

Glass and stainless steel are often cheaper sink options and just a durable. They are also the most popular choices for modern designs such as vessel sinks that look like bowls and pitchers. It is important to remember to avoid dropping heavy items on glass sinks.
