At first glance, bathroom renovations should not create problems for apartment owners. It would seem that you just come to the store and select the plumbing according to your taste and budget. But if you are not completely versed in the intricacies of installation, then you can purchase a sink that does not fit in size or will cause difficulties during installation, and therefore additional expenses. For some, plumbing is not the most expensive purchase when renovating an apartment, but it is not installed for one year, which means that it should be comfortable, look aesthetically pleasing, and easily cleaned of dirt. And here the buyer can get confused and not know exactly which model will suit the best.
How to choose a sink
Before presenting the rating of the best manufacturers, let's take a closer look at the parameters that should first of all pay attention to when buying.
- The size. The most important criterion when choosing. In spacious rooms, you can install a cabinet with a sink without saving square meters. For small rooms, compact corner models or those that are mounted above the bathtub or washing machine are suitable. The most common shell widths are 50-60 cm, mini models are available in 30 cm sizes.
- Installation type. Sinks with a pedestal do not require complex installation, they hide the eyeliner, if necessary, they are quickly dismantled. Pendant models are mounted on a console to the wall. The advantage is that they do not take up space on the floor, the disadvantage is that the siphon and eyeliner are not hidden from the eyes. Surface-mounted or built-in washbasins are installed on special cabinets. In addition to its aesthetic appearance, this design is practical: towels and other bathing accessories can be placed in the drawers.
- The form. Manufacturers can satisfy any customer's imagination. The usual semicircular, rectangular and square models are replaced by asymmetric, triangular and diamond-shaped ones. Many brands offer exclusive designer sinks in the shape of a heart or lips.
- Manufacturing material. The most budgetary is sanitary ware. The material performed well during operation. A special glazed coating makes it more durable and resistant to any kind of damage. Porcelain is more expensive, but it also does not lose its popularity among buyers. For connoisseurs of fine interior items, sinks are offered from transparent, colored, patterned or smooth glass. Recently, models made of marble, metal and even wood have attracted interest.
- Design feature. Sinks are divided into two types: with and without a tap hole. The first ones are the most popular, as they are more functional and practical. Without a hole, they look more aesthetically pleasing. If the installation is supposed to be directly next to the bathroom, then you can opt for this particular model.
