Many, maybe most people choose style and design without considering height. Height is often a more important element of the vanity for daily use. The common 30 inch size bathroom counter is just not optimum for people over 63 inches tall. However, vanity size is not at all standard. Some floor models are even lower than the usual 30 inches which might be ignored in the quest for the perfect design. Such a decision means you may end up having to bend down to wash your hands. This is only poor planning and completely avoidable. Just remember that the height of the sinks, mirrors and cabinets should be customized to their users, according to their actual size. Not that they have to be custom made. Customized only means chosen to fit the bathroom at a user friendly height. If it takes going to 6 stores to browse, do it. Drive the salespeople crazy with your questions. If what you want is not there, ask to see more. If you can't find a vanity according to your proportions, don't give up. Even kitchen cabinets might provide workable alternatives if bathroom cabinet selection is limited. And don't be afraid to improvise. For instance, if you are a tall family and the style you love only comes in 33-inch size, create simple inexpensive solutions, such as installing 2 or 3 inch glass bricks under the cabinets to add height. One designer suggests wiring in fluorescent lighting behind the glass bricks for an extra special finish. The same lesson can be applied to shower doors, spigots, towel racks, tubs, etc... Decide if you need taller, shorter, wider, or longer. Remember also that two heights are better than one if you have the space to accommodate users of different proportions. Buying For Looks Not Function. You're a guest at a friend's house in the Pocono's for the weekend. You're in the bathroom and you need a towel. You check to see if a fresh towel is in the cabinet and... Oh no! The cabinet handle comes off in your hand! The cabinet door didn't open because it's not there. It's an imitation cabinet just for show, hiding the plumbing. While standing there holding the handle in your hand along with some of the veneer board it was screwed into, you look at the stylish row of drawer handles. Maybe one opens all or maybe none open at all. You're afraid to guess. Isn't there some kind of truth-in-labeling rule that applies even in the bathroom? This type of cabinet is an economy choice and is often used in industrial settings such as hotels and office buildings. Its dubious charm has become passe;. However, the style is still frequently seen in trade journals and must have a market somewhere. If you are going to the expense and bother to replace your bathroom sinks and cabinets, choose a vanity that has storage space, not just a plumbing camouflage. If you really don't want cabinets, put in a pedestal sink or a wall hung sink. The general rule is don't try to fake it. It could be embarrassing. Settling For Less.

Touchless faucets are not only environmentally friendly but also and economical. This is probably the benefit that concerns you the most. People don't realise what is the quality of the water they waste when not stopping the water while they wash their teeth, until they see for themselves the difference in their new water bills. Thanks to the new intelligent electronics this water waste can be minimised by preventing water to flow when not being needed.
Next fit the taps. To make the job of connecting the taps to the supply pipes easier, it is often a good idea to fit 'tails' first. Tails are short lengths of hand-bendable copper pipe fixed to the laps with tap connectors. Because they can be flexed, connecting the tails to the supply pipes, even once the sink or basin is in position, is easy.
So what about the size of the sink? The length of the problem is not to pay attention to, but the width is imperative, the width to refer to the width of the table, the standard table width of 55cm and 60cm two, but everything is special, the old house 50cm of the majority of the table. 55cm table width should be selected within 45cm, 60cm table width of the sink as long as no more than 50cm can be installed, but the 50cm table selection of the width of the sink is relatively narrow, the widest can not exceed 41cm, which It is very important.
