Drop-in sinks (lip-mounted sinks). What they are: In these sinks, the sink's lip is raised above the countertop, so it's essentially sitting on top of the countertop surface instead of being mounted beneath it. Benefits: These tend to be more cost efficient than other sinks, and they're easy to plan for and use since they easily "drop in" to the hole in the countertop (and even if the hole isn't the exact right size, the sink can still work, thanks to the lip that can cover any gaps). Pedestal sinks. What they are: The sink basin sits on top of a column (a pedestal). Benefits: Perfect for smaller baths since they take up less space. Here's a pic from one of our bathroom renovations. Downside? No storage underneath like you get with vanities.
Which colour to use in my bathroom? Before making irrational decisions with towels and floor mats, you should be aware of what colours you want for the larger elements in your bathroom. Don't forget that the colour you choose will affect the overall ambience and feeling in the space. White is the go-to colour for most homeowners as it can be combined with other colours to create different effects. Combined with blue, it will house an adventurous underwater flair, whereas if combined with black, it can create a dramatic and romantic appeal. Also, you must take note of the amount, or lack thereof, of natural light that penetrates the space, as in the end, this will decide the colour scheme of your bathroom. As a general rule of thumb, dark or bright colours should not be used in small bathrooms, with the exception of small accessories.
You can also use vintage light fixtures, old pieces of barn wood for shelves, or an old mirror above the sink. Every time you use something old instead of something new, you're probably saving money and reducing your consumption. Both very good things. Don't forget to give back too. Any items you take out of your bathroom can be donated to your local Goodwill or to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I've recently thought about redoing my own bathroom. My house was built in 1900 and I have one very small bathroom. Thanks to an unfortunate paint color choice, the walls look as if they were hosed down with Pepto Bismal. In other words, it really needs some work and repainting is number one on my list. After that, I'd love to upcycle some old wood or metal to create shelving above the toilet and next to the sink. The plumbing towel racks are also definitely going in.
