Countertop faucets require space on the countertop between the sink and the wall, while those mounted on the sink save you that precious surface area. It can mean the difference between being able to fit in a tight sink or not.
OK, technically this is in a laundry room, but this durable glazed steel bucket sink would work just as well in a bathroom, especially a guest or kids’ bath. There are no holes for a faucet, so you’d have to incorporate a wall-mounted one, as shown earlier. But hey, it’s two great ideas in one.
It’s amazing how upbeat a bathroom becomes with the addition of a lively wallpaper. Here, an ocean-inspired print perks up a small bungalow bathroom in a way that even the most vibrant paint job couldn’t.
If you’re not a fan of wall-mounted faucets but are short on counter depth, see if you can place the faucet to the side of the sink. This will save you from having to expand the counter to accommodate the faucet behind the sink.
