Fundamentals of proper selection of sinks
Virtually any bathroom regardless of its size and configuration should be equipped with a washbasin. If you plan to repairs in the bathroom with a complete change of plumbing, you need to understand exactly what shell is functional and meet all your requirements. Wash should not be massive and cumbersome if you have a small bathroom. Very small Pedestal sink for large families will also be a bad choice. The aesthetic side of the issue and the ceramic shell color matching to the rest of the subjects of the interior is also very important. The price range and the manufacturer selected for the shell should match the rest of the plumbing. As a rule, the leading manufacturers of sanitary ware and ceramics produced a series of bathrooms in the same style. Therefore, we can pay attention to a single vendor and purchase the whole set at once for bathrooms.
