Small Bathroom Sinks

Small bathrooms don’t need to feel cramped or stuffy. There are several sinks out there that complement a small bathroom well. With one of these sink types and the right choices in flooring and lighting, a small bathroom can possess a special blend of elegance and charm.

Utilizing the corners is highly recommended in small bathrooms. These hard-to-reach spaces aren’t often used to their full advantage in the standard bathroom. In small bathrooms, however, every space is important. Bathroom sinks designed for corners are great space savers. Corner sinks also come in combination with other space-saving designs: the corner pedestal sink and the corner

. Corner vanities also come in small, compact shapes.

Even when placed against the wall, pedestal sinks save room because they eliminate bulky counters. To make up for lost storage space, it’s possible to place small shelves beneath or behind the pedestal sink, or to make use of shower racks and door hooks. Mini pedestal sinks, such as those available through Vintage Tub and Bath, are also available for the smaller bathroom. These mini sinks are only about 16 inches wide, compared to standard sizes of about 20 inches.

Like pedestal sinks, wall-mounted sinks also don’t utilize counter space, are functional, and are aesthetically simple. Some models, such as the Nova Wall Mount Sink by Cheviot, include an extended side to place soap and toothbrush holder or other decorative items.
