Small bathrooms pose a particular challenge for the ambitious homeowner. They may want to add in a massive freestanding tub, cabinets with double sink vanity tops, and other big features, but the room may simply be too small. Smaller fixtures like space-saving console sinks help add a lot of elegance and style to a room without taking up a lot of space. Discover how to use a small console sink to maximize its impact in any bathroom.
Save Valuable Floor Space
Console sinks are popular for their ability to open up the floor space under a sink with the use of pipe-like legs to support the vanity. Freeing up space below the vanity keeps a small bathroom from looking overcrowded or cluttered. A small sink can fit into corners and leave more space for larger tubs and better toilet placement.
Create New Storage Opportunities
Depending on the console sink design, it’s possible to create more storage opportunities. Some console sinks incorporate horizontal bars in the design that can double as convenient towel bars for quick hand drying. The Kingston Brass Edwardian 20-Inch Console Sink is a great example of that style. Other console sinks may feature shelves for holding items, and almost all of them work well with storage baskets added below.
Add a Second Sink
Small console sinks are ideal for creating a second vanity area in a different part of a larger bathroom. This can create space for shaving, hand-washing, or any other activities that aren’t so easy to accomplish at a busy main vanity area. If the sink-in-bedroom idea is appealing to create new opportunities for washing up before bed, a small console sink is a great choice for that application.
The open leg design of a console sink helps air circulate through the bathroom, which can be crucial to mold prevention in smaller spaces. Along with the use of a ventilation fan, installing more open fixtures can help reduce both odor and grout discoloration issues.
