Renovating your bathroom can change the look of your whole house without having to pay a fortune. You do not have to change everything in your bathroom to get a fresh look. Changing your bathroom sink can breathe extra life into an otherwise dull bathroom. There are many different types of sink available nowadays, no longer are you limited to simple bowls, now they are available in many different shapes, colors and sizes. You can find them for numerous different budgets.

Installation Choices

You could opt for a free standing sink, or one that you have mounted onto a countertop. You can also buy bathroom sinks which can be hung from the wall. Which option you choose will probably depend on your plumbing, and the amount of space you have available. The cheapest option will normally be a white porcelain sink, this is the most traditional type of sink. You can get these in a number of different shapes, from round to oval or even square. You don't have to limit yourself to porcelain sinks, there are a number of other alternatives which you should consider.

You could have a solid countertop with a molded sink, this is one piece which contains your sink and countertop. These are excellent solutions as there's no chance of any leaking. There are a number of different types of these available in different price brackets. These come pre-molded for various standard sizes, you can purchase them from your local home improvement store.

There are many different colors and patterns available on bathroom sink designs, you are only limited by your imagination. You can paint bathroom sinks with any color that you want, including any designs. There are some popular themes for bathrooms, including nursery characters, fish and floral designs.
