If you absolutely can't invest in updating your sink look but are still crazy about bathroom remodeling, consider a sink skirt.

A couple of things to remember when reinstalling your new or renewed bathroom sink are:
- Size and model of a bathroom sink. If your bathroom sink is a part of a bathroom vanity, then its size and height may be compromised. It is easier to customize size and height of your bathroom sink if it's freestanding.
- Height is important. Consider who will be using your bathroom – do you have young kids or are all of the household members adult? If kids are present (or are frequent guests) consider buying a step for them so that they can reach the bathroom sink easily.
- Material. A laminated sink will rust and will need frequent repairs. Bathroom remodeling how to manuals suggest investing in a good sink – a marble one is the safest choice – instead of tiles or a fancy bathtub.
- Bathroom faucets. Make sure these are also made out of a material that isn't going to cause them to rust. Stainless steel is the best for bathroom faucets.
