Plumber: Wall-hung bathroom sinks offer many features
Hello Ed: We have an existing closet that we want to remodel as a small bathroom. What bathroom fixture choices do you recommend for small areas? We are willing to give up storage space for a little more moving around room.
— Bill, Texas
Dear Bill: This is an easy choice for me since I have worked in many small bathrooms.
For small powder room areas, just like any bathroom area, I recommend you install a good venting fan.
Next, look into a round-front toilet bowl, or better yet — but more expensive — you can find residential wall-hung toilets with the water tank concealed in the wall.
Speaking of wall-hung fixtures, a wall-hung bathroom sink can help you pick up some valuable space as well. Wall-mounted sinks are natural space-saving designs, and they can do it with classic styling and versatility. Many wall-hung sinks can be used with standard bathroom faucets and have wide, flat rims for a little shelving.
So, no need to give up comfort while you’re looking to pick up space.
