Remodelling a smaller toilet room or bathroom can be tricky. The lack of space tends to limit your options, and failing to take measurements into account can result in a room which is difficult to move around in. However, one of the easiest ways to maximise space is by picking a sink which works for a small room. Here are a great list of options:

Pedestal Sink

Pedestal sinks represent one of the most common ways in which interior designers and homeowners increase the amount of space in toilet rooms and bathrooms. Since they stand on a long pedestal instead of a bulky cabinet, they take up far less floor space, and are available in a number of styles to suit your chosen design scheme. Pedestal sinks are also quite versatile; you can easily fit circular storage shelves around them if you find you need the storage space.

Corner Sink

Pedestal sinks are a great way to increase your floor space. However, some people still dislike the amount that they project out into the room itself. If this is something you're worried about – it can be particularly troublesome in a narrow room – then try fitting a corner sink.

These are naturally out of the way, and they also make good locations for storage space since the room won't be broken up as much. If you have a shower, install your corner sink opposite the door to make sure it isn't impeded.

Trough Sink

Corner sinks and pedestal sinks are available in numerous designs, but they still typically suit a more traditional style. One innovative alternative is a trough sink. Long, thin, and possessing a modern, minimalist appeal, these are perfect for adding a dash of chic to tighter bathrooms and toilet rooms, and their elongated appearance even helps make the walls seem more expansive.

Wall-Mounted Taps

Okay, wall-mounted taps aren't in themselves a type of sink. However, you should consider using them, no matter which type you go for. Using wall-mounted taps means that the edge of the sink can extend right up to the wall. There's no space wasted. Your room will be easier to walk around in, and feel less cluttered. Additionally, wall-mounted taps make cleaning a lot easier.

If you're thinking of remodelling a smaller bathroom or toilet room, consider fitting a pedestal, corner, or trough sink, as well as wall-mounted taps. The costs won't be much different, but you'll be able to enjoy much more bathroom!
