Though we usually mostly pay attention to the kitchen when it comes to decorating, we should focus equal amounts of attention on the bathroom. It, too, is an important room in the house.
There are many ways a small bathroom can feel cramped and crowded. Whilst a recessed sink can free up some floor space, you’ll still end up with the bulky vanity that holds the basin itself. A wall hung basin on the other hand is designed to be mounted on your walls; this means not only does your bathroom stay clutter-free, but it also feels light and airy.
Wall-Mounted Sinks Are Available in a Range of Sizes to Suit Every Space
Wall mount basins are becoming more popular, particularly with the rise in popularity of modern bathroom design. These wall-mounted basins are designed for use in apartments, student homes and smaller bathrooms. The freestanding sinks will still remain popular but wall mount basin models on the market are growing in popularity due to their convenience and utility.
Wall-mounted basins are essentially sinks that are attached to tiled walls rather than having legs or plinths to support them. This means that they can be used in much smaller bathrooms as there is no room needed for a basin stand or plinth. The two main types of wall-mounted basins are the inset and full set wall mounted sink. The inset type has an edge around the front of the sink whereas the full set has a lip all the way around it. Full set wall mounted wash basins tend to be much deeper than inset types.
Both types come in a range of sizes, with most being either 600mm or 800mm wide but others are available at 1000mm widths. There is also a choice between one tap hole or two tap holes on most models, although again both sizes will be available for each model.
They’re Functional and Aesthetically Pleasing
Wall basins are an attractive, practical option for small bathrooms. They’re designed to fit into the corner of the room, with one end of the basin protruding from the wall and a tap on the other side. They come in a range of shapes and styles, so you can find one that blends into your bathroom decor. They’re ideal for smaller bathrooms because they take up less space than a freestanding basin.
The wall-mounted sink saves you from having to sacrifice useful space for a sink that’s only used occasionally. They also allow you to keep your bathroom clutter-free by eliminating the need for a separate washstand or countertop. Some models have storage space built into the basin, which is great if you want to keep things like toothpaste and makeup handy without keeping them on display. Some units also come with a mirror attached to the back of the sink, which saves you from having to choose between a mirror and a shelf.
No Ugly Pipes Sticking Out
When you take off the lid of your sink, there are usually two big problems: the pipes that lead into the wall and the pipes that lead out of it. The pipes that lead into the wall need to fit tightly, or they will leak. The pipes that lead out of the wall need to be flexible, so you can adjust them as needed — but if they’re too flexible, they’ll leak. The solution is obvious: make both sets of pipes invisible. And this is exactly what a wall-mounted sink does.
A wall-mounted sink doesn’t need to be tight around its pipes, because it has no pipes. It doesn’t need to be flexible around its pipes, because it has no pipes. The result is that you can install a single hole through your wall (assuming your plumbing permits it) and then drop your sink into place like a jigsaw puzzle piece. You can even cut out the hole first and put in temporary plumbing before dropping in the sink, to make sure you’ve got everything right before you pour concrete through the hole in your wall. You don’t have to worry about getting water behind your sink either — there’s nothing you can do wrong with a wall-mounted sink that will cause water to back up behind it and cause further problems.
Significantly Easier to Install Than Traditional Basins
One of the most significant benefits which you could have from a wall-mounted sink is the fact that they are easily installed. The installation process of a wall hung sink is not as complicated as that of a traditional sink. In addition to that, a wall-hung sink can also be easily removed and replaced with another model or another style because the mounting structure itself is simple.
The mounting bracket for a wall-hung sink can be easily installed onto concrete walls, concrete blocks and it can even be installed onto wooden studs as well as steel studs as well as other materials as well. In addition to that, there are also several installation variations that you could have for this kind of sink. It can be installed under a countertop or it can be recessed into the wall. There are also other kinds of sinks that could be installed into a wall such as a drop-in sink, a top mount sink and many others. One of the biggest concerns that people have when shopping around for a new sink is installation. However, you should know that if you opt for a wall-mounted sink you will be leaving behind your plumbing nightmares and entering a whole new era.
Porcelain vs. Ceramic–It’s All About Colour!
When choosing a wall-mounted sink, the type of material you want really depends on your personal preferences. If you are looking for a minimalist look, then ceramic sinks are probably for you. They come in white or black as well as different shades of grey and brown. Porcelain, on the other hand, gives you the option to go with vibrant colours that might reflect something more unique about your personality.
To Sum it Up
A simple wall mounted bathroom basin sink will almost fit any bathroom, even the smallest. The wall mount basin creates more floor space. This makes for a more luxurious feeling to your bathroom even if it is quite small. It is also easy to keep clean, with no awkward pipes sticking out the back of the basin. Creating a modern bathroom does not always mean spending loads on large baths and showers. Sometimes it is easier done with small contemporary basins which look fantastic when mounted on your wall.
