You might think that the shower, tub, and tile are the "big" decisions when it comes to bathroom remodeling. And those decisions are certainly important. But don't forget--or underestimate--the power of the perfect sink. Now when we say "perfect sink" we're not talking about one that's free and self-cleans, too (though wouldn't that be nice?). We're talking about different sink styles and how the right (or wrong) one can impact the look and feel of the room. So let's review the different "types" of sinks you'll likely encounter as you begin your search. Undermount sinks. What they are: Undermounted sinks are mounted beneath the countertop surface. Benefits: It creates one seamless look (since there are no exposed lips). Also, they're easier to keep clean compared to drop-in sinks since there's no raised lip to catch debris or for bacteria and mildew to grow. These types of sinks are especially popular with solid surface countertops where a fabricator custom makes a hole for the sink. They don't work as well with tile or laminate since these materials can have weak points that don't support the sink effectively.
Some key things to think about are: Is it a family bathroom? If so, you'll probably want to factor in lots of storage space. Do you always shower and rarely bathe? Consider a standalone shower or wet room instead of installing a bath you won't use. If you like baths and showers, a bath with a shower it gives you a flexible option. Is space at a premium? Think about how you could incorporate storage cupboards on the walls rather than floor – maybe above the bath or even built in underneath. Do you want to use your bathroom to relax in? Consider getting a freestanding bath for a luxurious feel, and having somewhere close by to store candles and magazines. Are you a couple sharing the bathroom? How about getting two basins to make getting ready in the morning less chaotic? If someone will be using it to do make-up or dress in, then you'll want to make sure there is plenty of light and a decent-sized mirror. Asking yourself these questions will help you refine the little changes to make or elements to incorporate that will make a lot of difference to your bathroom and your enjoyment of it.
Due to frequent use and the resulting wear and tear, bathrooms tend to start breaking down after about 20 years, whether that's a perpetually leaky faucet or crumbling grout or chipping tiles (or all three). On average, bathroom remodels cost $16,724, so your design should be both intentional and strategic in order to secure a high return on investment, as well as to create a functional space. That said, bathrooms are typically small, enclosed rooms so they are also a place in your home where you can play around a little bit with color and texture. Either way, determine how to make the most of your space. We've covered everything from small bathroom ideas that focus on function to making the most of your budget by changing small things like paint color or upgrading in phases.
