Whatever the style and quality of your bathroom furniture you choose, make sure you take your time in making your decision. Bathrooms have now become not just a place to clean up but they are almost like a little mini vacation destination. Make sure with your bathroom remodel that you are choosing a bathtub and sink that will fit the ambiance of your new relaxation space. Purchasing a high end vessel sink is a great place to start. You can usually find these beautiful sinks at reasonable prices if you are willing to shop around a bit. Make sure that when you do decide on a bathroom sink that it matches the style and color of your bathroom accessories and other decor.
One of the first things you have to do is find a retailer that sells a high end look vessel sink. During these economic times, purchasing a sink at a lower than ticket price is easier than it used to be. Most retailers are willing to make some sort of deal just to move inventory. Don’t be afraid to ask for a discount. One of the things to ask your local retailer about regarding the sales price is are there any discontinuations sales going on, or older merchandise, last year’s models that are about to be replaced etc. You just never know where you might be able to save some money on your bathroom fixtures and sinks etc.
Of course, shopping online will increase your chances for getting a great deal. If you already know what design style of sink you want, such as a copper sink, a glass vessel sink or a stone sink, it will make it easier to compare prices. If you don’t know what type of sink you want for your bathroom, search around on the internet starting with manufacturers websites and see the different styles and colors that they offer. Sometimes you can get a good deal by dealing with the manufacturer directly, sometimes it is more price effective to check out online retailers that carry that same brand as they have been given dealer prices.
Once you have decided on the style and color of your sink, make notes as to which retailer, either online or locally, has the best prices. Then see if you can get them to reduce their price. Even a few dollars helps or have free shipping thrown in as an incentive. One of the great things about sinks and bathroom vanities is the availability of so many different choices. I have seen some luxury designers that are true artists. Not only do they place a glass vessel sink on a bath vanity unit but they will combine all different types of metal, wood and stone to create a totally unique piece of bathroom furniture that is guaranteed to wow your guests. Or for you to enjoy the beauty of when you are soaking in your spa bathtub.
Expensive hardwoods and marble are some common materials used for high end sinks. Marble is a very beautiful stone and would look great in any bathroom setting. Hardwoods are becoming more common in high end style bathroom and when they are properly treated can withstand daily use without any problems. One of the secrets of some designers and interior decorators is to shop in foreign countries for these sinks. They are always considerably less with the US dollar being strong in foreign countries. If you live near the border of Mexico they are known for the beautiful stone work. Of course, searching online always provides great ideas along with great prices. Another avenue to consider is a home and garden show. Most manufacturers are represented and offering show discounts.
In conclusion, no matter your budget or style, with a little perseverance you can get any designer look for less in your bathroom and make it your nightly mini vacation spot. Make sure and have some bath oils or bubble bath on hand along with some candles for a truly luxurious spa feel if you so choose.
