Square Bathroom Sinks
Ask any real estate professional and they will tell you kitchens and bathrooms sell a
house. No one wants to live in a home where the fixtures and finishes are out of date and unattractive. Whether you
are buying a new home, or just want to make updates to your current home, putting money into a bathroom renovation
is an investment in the livability and style of your home that will repay you for years to come.
One fairly easy and quick way to update your bathroom is by installing a new sink and
faucet. There are many innovative sink designs on the market today, with a square bathroom sink being a popular
choice. Square sinks can help create a mood in any bathroom, from very traditional, to sleek and modern. No matter
what style of bathroom you are looking for, there is a square sink that will meet your needs.
For very traditional bathrooms, a pedestal sink with a square profile makes an elegant
choice. The square lines of the pedestal and of the sink give a formal look to any bathroom. A square sink top also
offers more space to set a toothbrush or bar of soap than a similar circular pedestal sink.
If you are installing new counter tops, consider installing a square under mount sink
instead of a traditional round under mount bowl. While this has been a popular choice for kitchen installations for
many years, a square under mount sink can give a fresh and modern look to any bathroom. Keep in mind that counter
tops may need to be custom cut for a square sink installation, most prefabricated counter tops come with an oval
hole cut to the standard size of a typical oval bathroom sink. Check with your local home improvement center to see
how to best mount the square sink of your choice.
By far the most popular square sink style today is a vessel, or top mounted sink. This
works well with concrete or other modern materials. First, because the clean lines of a square vessel will mirror
the look of a sleek new counter top. Also, some counter materials are difficult to fabricate. A vessel, or counter
top, sink does not require a large cutout for installation. Instead, the plumbing can be installed with a few small
drilled holes. Vessel sinks, especially square ones, give a zen-like feel to any bathroom.
