Bathroom sinks are available in many styles from traditional to ultra-modern. Wall-mount models are ideal for bathrooms where space is at a premium. Pedestal sinks are also popular in tight areas and have the added advantage of concealing the drain line within the base. Several other styles are designed specifically for vanities.
Replacement costs depend on the type of sink as well as structural changes needed to accommodate the new fixture. Compared to pedestal and wall-mount sinks, vanities are slightly easier to install because the plumbing lines are hidden within the cabinet. When installing a different sink style, additional construction and cosmetic work might be required. Modifications to the supply lines and drainpipes are frequently needed when installing a new vanity or completing a major remodeling project. In this situation, it's worth hiring a general contractor or plumber who can secure the necessary permits.
From project planning to completion, professionals can assist in every step of this task. Replacing a bathroom sink requires solid plumbing skills as well as some knowledge of carpentry, drywall patching and even painting. A plumber's expertise is invaluable, especially when rerouting water lines, relocating fixtures and completing work that requires a building permit. Whether homeowners are swapping out the sink or completing a full-scale bathroom remodel, professionals can help them achieve the best possible results.
