Planning a new-look bathroom in your Sarasota, Florida, home? A stylish bathroom sink and bath can set the tone for the room. With so many styles and materials available, how do you choose the bath and sink set that’s right for you?


What style do you want to create in your bathroom? A remodeled bathroom can either enhance the look of your home or be completely different — a unique space that is distinct from any other room in your home. Baths and sinks are usually made of white porcelain, but there are a host of other options available, ranging from glass and stone to wood and metals.


How much space do you have? Some bathrooms are very small, thus many bathtubs won’t fit. Will your bathtub be freestanding, such as a claw foot tub, or does it need to be installed in a corner or against a wall? Space will also be a deciding factor in your choice of sink. If you have a small bathroom, choose a sink that fits well within the countertop and isn’t too large. Determine how much space you have before setting your heart on a specific bath and sink set.


Why do you want a bathtub — besides to bathe in it? Do you have a sore back that you want to have massaged? Then consider a jetted tub or whirlpool. Or do you just want to relax and soak in your bath? Maybe a soaking tub or a bubble tub is the best idea.

What type of sink will suit your style and space? Freestanding sinks are suited to almost any size bathroom, pedestal sinks are very popular as a design, wall-mounted sinks make the bathroom feel spacious, inset sinks look sleek and provide extra counter space, and countertop sinks or vessel sinks can be used to create a contrast of materials.
