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.
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.
