A simple and relatively inexpensive way to re-do your bathrooms would be to change the sink faucets. There are quite a number of new faucet designs that are both functional and modern. Gone are days when you have to settle for thick, bulky knobs as a practical choice. The options available today have incorporated function with style, and can turn drab to fab in minutes.
Expect to spend more for a modern design but you can also demand better quality and long-lasting use. There are some convenient installment plans that you can buy but make sure to check for warranty so that you have that added reassurance in case you end up with a lemon.
It’s always a good idea to stick to the basic solid brass or polished chrome instead of a flimsier metal. In fact, you don’t even have to feel compelled to buy the shiniest faucet because it will require more maintenance to keep it looking brand new.
Your choice of sink, if you plan to replace it should not overwhelm your bathroom size. There are 4 basic types of bathroom sink design based on mounting, size, and number of holes. Often the hole size and distance will narrow down your choice of faucet, so be sure to check this first before buying any. A change in sink may also mean additional costs in changing the plumbing, so keep this in mind if you have a limited budget.
As for the design, why not stand at your bathroom door and look at the dimensions of all your bathroom fixtures. Plan how to open space without compromising convenience. This will help you come up with a shortlist for the sink and faucet designs. It would also be great if you could come up with a short list that keeps the rest of the fixtures in mind. This way the finished look does have clashing colors, designs, or theme. This doesn’t mean you have to stick to one brand. It is possible to mix and match brands as long as you stick to the general design and theme.
