Bathroom Business School
About the sink, our common operation is placed in the bathroom.
But have you thought about moving out?
Move the sink out of the bathroom, in fact, more convenient. Washing and squatting toilet every morning will not conflict with each other. This can save a lot of waiting time. At the same time the bathroom can also save more space to do wet and dry separation.
Where to put the sink after moving it out of the bathroom?
I have listed a few common places where you can put the sink. If you have other additions, you can share them in the comments section.
Can be installed in the entrance
A sink can be installed in the entrance hall. Few people may think of this, but this design is very common in Japan. As long as space allows, they will find a way to add a sink in the entrance annex to make it easy to wash hands as soon as you enter the house.
In addition, you can also use the sink as a partition to the entrance, while the top and bottom of the counter can also provide additional storage space. Now some families in China are beginning to adopt similar designs.
Simply installed outside the bathroom
Set the sink in the bathroom doorway on the aisle. This is not only easy to achieve wet and dry partition. And because the sink location only takes up a small area of the common part, the aisle will not feel crowded.
Move the sink to the outside, the occupants worry about the overall aesthetic impact of direct exposure. If the storage is not done well, the appearance is messy again, and it can be weakened directly from the visual aspect in the design.
▲Add a wall to block the view
▲ Use wooden fence as partition, high value
Installed between two rooms
Is it hard to imagine how to design? Simply put, it is to set the sink between 2 rooms. For example, the sink can be installed between the kitchen and bathroom or between 2 bedrooms, etc.
The advantage of doing this is that it can make full use of space and avoid the waste of repeated settings. It can also have the role of dividing space.
Installed in the dressing table
This operation is relatively uncommon. The bedroom can not place a vanity to store these small things, so it is better to combine it with the sink. It can be installed in the bathroom, outside the bathroom, or planned between the checkroom and the bathroom. This makes it easy to use on a daily basis.
According to our idea this seems strange, but to stand in the habits of the owner, it seems to be a reasonable design.
Disadvantages of placing the sink outside
The sink is a place where the occupants frequently use water. Waterproofing is necessary in case of water use. Otherwise, if water leaks, the whole house may suffer. It is recommended to follow the waterproofing standards of the dry area of the bathroom, at least 30cm high in the sink floor and wall brush waterproof paint.
Secondly, the bathroom is put outside without the cover of the door. If you do not do a good job of storage, the messy scene will be directly exposed. So do the appropriate storage function, even the choice of towels should become harsh. Otherwise, sitting in the living room, everything is in full view.
A good use of the sink can do this
In addition to outwardly moving the sink, some can make the sink become beautiful basic knowledge. Everyone can also learn about it.
About the style of the washbasin: on the counter basin, under the counter basin
The above-counter basin appearance style is very rich. It is not only square, round, oval, there may be another petal shape can choose. Generally with a raised faucet is more.
An undercounter basin is installed under the countertop. It is glued to the countertop from the bottom up. The advantage is that it is very easy to clean the countertop. It is very common to have water on the countertop. The undercounter sink process can easily wipe the water on the countertop into the basin.
Mirror cabinets to choose or not
For the mirror, it is better to choose a mirror cabinet. I personally think there is a mirror cabinet or more convenient, storage capacity can be improved a lot. The choice of mirror cabinet also has to be careful. The advantage is that there is a part of open storage, part of the closed storage.
Light is the number one requirement for looking in the mirror. Most people may only install a mirror light above the mirror. In fact, a better way is to have lights on the left and right side of the mirror. The lights are about one person wide apart. Many professional vanities are set up this way.
Double basin design
Double sink design can improve the efficiency of life. For example, a family of four has to go to school and work and go out at the same time, and the picture of two people washing up together is cozy. Of course, the double pedestal basin may only be suitable for the situation where the bathroom space is relatively large.
The above is about the sink outward. If you want to separate the wet and dry, but you have a narrow bathroom space, you can move the sink out of the bathroom. This is a perfectly reasonable and feasible idea.
