Wall-mounted sinks. What they are: These are sink basins that are attached to the wall--no pedestal, no vanity. Benefits: Efficient and perfect for tight spaces. That said, they also can be used in larger bathrooms as well. You'll often find them in commercial settings (think of the sinks in movie theater restrooms). Today's materials and options can offer interesting flourishes (i.e. they don't need to be boring). Vessel sinks. What they are: Essentially, the whole basin/bowl sits on top of the counter. Benefits: They can be styled in so many ways from modern to rustic, turn-of-the-century-farmhouse chic. Bonus? If they're part of a vanity, they free up space underneath the countertop. Here's a collection of vessel sinks on Houzz.
Replacing the mirror and/or door handles can also make a difference, as can seemingly small touches such as the hand towels. If you're on a budget but want to do more-serious work, for example replacing fittings and fixtures, we would only advise DIY if you know what you're doing, or you could end up having to pay more to get things fixed than you would have if you'd hired a professional in the first place. Always check that what you're doing complies with current building regulations. If you decide to hire a professional to fit the bathroom you have chosen, get quotes from three suppliers. If the retailer you're buying your bathroom or fittings from offers to fit it too, compare the installation costs on offer to those of another local fitter – 42% of people in our survey found their bathroom installer themselves as opposed to 30% who used an installer from the company they bought the bathroom from. 9% of those who found and used their own installer did so because the quote they got was cheaper.
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.
