Corner sinks save space but don't scrimp on style.
After years of homes growing bigger, builders are constructing houses with smaller footprints. As the square footage of American homes decreases, maximizing space in your bathroom is key.
One such way you can accomplish this is by considering a corner sink for your bathroom space. This type of sink provides both a functional and elegant solution you should consider; it can open up your bathroom for other necessities while still remaining modern and sleek.
Like anything, it’s sometimes difficult to know where to begin choosing the right one for your space, but if you follow these tips, finding your perfect sink should be easier:
Start With The Design
Corner bathroom sinks come in a variety of designs, materials and sizes. No matter the interior style of your bathroom, you can easily find a corner sink to match.
In modern homes, a geometric, glass sink would suit your needs, while corner sinks on a pedestal perfectly suit traditional bathrooms. Wall-mounted sinks are ideal for very tiny bathrooms. You can also find corner sinks in retro and vintage styles, or even repurpose an old sink into a new spot, if you have the tools, and of course, the correct plumbing to do so.
Size Of The Bathroom Will Impact Shape Of The Sink
Bathrooms with a smaller footprint require fixtures that are sized appropriately. More, you'll need to find ways to utilize every part of your bathroom. Corner sinks let you make use of typically unused corners, creating more space around other fixtures like your toilet.
Corner sinks round out your smaller bathroom and balance the room better than more traditional sinks. Wall-mount sinks create a modern/industrial aesthetic while a cabinet-style sink gives you storage options for things like cleaning supplies and extra towels.
Larger Bathrooms May Require Standard-Sized Sinks
If your home has a larger bathroom, though, corner sinks also work for you here, giving you extra room for a larger tub or shower and an extra dose of spaciousness. The various designs can suit any bathroom, no matter its size.
If you choose a corner configuration, you can still have a standard size sink. Get creative by installing a pedestal sink or a drop-in sink into a corner console.
Be Mindful Of Where Your Plumbing Is
If plumbing is already in the corner, there’s no problem. If your plumbing is elsewhere, you’ll need to estimate the cost of rerouting it before deciding if a corner sink works for your bathroom — and budget — or not.
Whether you have a small or large bathroom, corner sinks are great additions. They’re functional, beautiful and save space. No matter your bathroom’s size or design, you can find a stunning corner sink to perfectly suit your needs.
