Which sink is right for your bathroom?

Sinks are a necessity for every bathroom. But make sure that when you’re thinking of which sink to opt for you consider your bathroom’s overall theme too. In modern bathrooms you no longer see white in every direction, with a range of styles, designs and colours for every aspect of the room. With the sink you should be contemplating things such as size, style and material.

How many sinks do you need?

This may sound like a strange question to many people, who have never seen a bathroom with more than one sink fitted. For smaller bathrooms and guestroom ensuites there’ll be little need for two sinks. But in fact, two can be a huge advantage to larger bathrooms. This would be particularly beneficial for a master bedroom when the space could be needed by two people at the same time.

What size sink should I choose?

The recommendation for sinks is that you should make full use of the space available and fit the largest sink your bathroom can cater for. The depth of your sink is important too, because the deeper the sink the lesser chance there’ll be of water splashing out.

What style of sink should you pick?

With the sink there are a number of designs available to choose from. In fact, many people are now selecting colours which contrast with the rest of the bathroom. Adversely, there are those who’d rather choose something complementary so the choice really is up to you. There are a range of shapes, including round, oval, rectangular, square and asymmetrical. Depending on your bathroom you can also find sinks which will fit into the corner.

What material is best for the sink?

On the other hand, you can benefit from a contemporary installation which is lightweight too by picking enamelled steel. When choosing the sink it’s best to speak to experts in the industry and review all your options.
