Console sinks are appropriate for smaller bathrooms because they help to open up a space and make it seem larger than it is. A console sink is a sink that is mounted on a counter top that is connected to the wall at the back and supported by two legs in the front. There is no cabinet underneath and this open space helps make your bathroom seem bigger. The space under the sink is a good spot to utilize storage baskets. Console sinks have a delicate quality to them so they are better suited to bathrooms that are decorated in light colors and soft tones.
The current trend is starting to change in the stainless steel undermount sink. In the past most people preferred a double bowl sink, however a single large bowl is being selected much more frequently. It would seem many people are using the dishwasher and they want a larger single sink to wash just the pots and pans. It should be noted that the largest undermount single bowl on the market today is typically 30 inches long (measured horizontally) by 18 inches wide (front to back). This does not seem like big difference from the typical double bowl that measures 33 inches long (measured horizontally) by 22 inches wide (front to back), but the reality is the reduction of the sink size allows for much greater room behind the sink which will now open up your faucet choices and it also allows placement of the sink a little farther back in the countertop which allows the front edge of the counter top more meat which helps significantly in keeping breakage of the countertop to a minimum. This is truly important because most solid surface countertops fail at this critical point not only at installation but a year or two after installation after your fabricator is now no longer responsible.
Wall mount sinks are a great solution for small bathrooms, as they are fixed to the wall and do not require floor supports. The supply lines and drain are visible underneath the sink. Wall mount sinks are simple, economical, and are also available in corner styles. They are most often made of vitreous china, ceramic, fireclay, or porcelain.
The easiest contribution to a remodel of your kitchen would be replacing your kitchen sink and taps. This should be a simple endeavour as long as you are not replacing the old sink with a smaller size or replacing the counter-top as well. This would be a perfect undertaking for any DIY aficionado.
When selecting a sink you need to first determine the type of countertop you will have, any type of Formica will require a drop in sink. If you are using any type of solid surface you will have many options to choose from. It is important to stay up to date with the current trends especially for resale value, but it is equally important that you get that functionality that you deserve.
