The original solution is a bathroom sink without a faucet hole.
This sink can boast a modern designer plumbing that will make the bathroom original and unique. The sophisticated and luxurious design serves as an ornament to any bathroom, whether it is a classic version of the interior, or a modern direction. Many people do not like the faucets on the sinks, they look rude, and bring some inconvenience during cleaning.The mixer can be installed outside the sink - it can be in the wall or in the floor.
Such a modification can create the impression of a stream of water that appears in the sink literally from a wall or ceiling. This variation requires a special design and a certain approach to the interior.
Such a sink makes the bathroom original and unique.
One of the main and necessary elements in the interior of the bathroom is considered a sink. Recently, with the modern approach to the design of the bathroom, more and more often they offer a modified view of the sink - without a hole for the faucet. It belongs to the design type of plumbing, which contains both the decorative appearance and performs the appointment.return to menu ↑
Original shell shape
At first glance, the sink for the bathroom without a hole for the faucet is quite simple, the most common form. However, this is not the case; on the contrary, it is a rather complicated device. Some samples have no holes at all, even the discharge of water is not visible.
Rectangular model - stylish and original
On some models there is a side, with the help of which it overlaps the junction of the connection of the sink and the tabletop. Sometimes the sink is fixed under the table top, which closes all the joints.But the most original and hygienically correct is considered the option of a solid glass sink.
In this embodiment, there are no seams where dirt will accumulate, which will spoil the appearance and not meet the standards of hygiene. A large sink will not give the spray to scatter throughout the room.return to menu ↑
Where is the mixer?
When modern bathroom design preference is given to supernova new sink models without a hole for the faucet. For these structures, an elongated spout mixer is used that is embedded in the wall, in the worktop, in the floor.
The whole mechanism for wall faucets is in the wall, where it is not noticeable at all. Only the valve is visible in order to turn on the water, and the pipe through which water will flow. When the faucet is installed in the table top, the main condition is considered to be that the mixer spout corresponds to the height of the sink side itself. In expensive models there are almost no holes, if necessary it is installed directly on the floor near the sink.
The whole mechanism for wall mounted faucets is in the wall.
Such sinks were immediately released by manufacturers of sanitary ware in Europe. Over time, our designers worked closely with European experts, which allows us to produce more advanced models of bathroom sinks.return to menu ↑
So that during the operation the water from the sink does not overflow, specialists and designers have developed certain solutions that will allow to avoid trouble. Today, there are several ideas of the system responsible for ensuring that there is no overflow of water:
- In the first variant, when the water in the sink reaches a certain height of the surface, the drain opens automatically, preventing the water from flowing outside.
- In the second case, a siphon will come to the rescue, which is built in, there it is already connected to the drain pipe. When the drain hole is closed, the water under pressure rises to the level of the siphon in the sink.
- When it comes to a certain point on the surface, it will overflow through the built-in partition, thus falling into the sewer. In this version, the sink is equipped with a special drain valve - non-lockable. This valve at a specific water level is automatically activated, overflow will not happen.

Pros and cons
Such an original and effective at first glance sink without a hole for the mixer, like any other plumbing, or furniture has both advantages and disadvantages.
The advantage of this design is that water can not be poured under the mixer
The lack of such structures is a certain inconvenience in installation. To lay the necessary materials, pipes, it is necessary to hollow the walls in the bathroom, therefore it is necessary initially, even before the start of the repair, to decide whether such a sink is necessary in the bathroom or not.
But the advantage - during operation, water can not be poured under the mixer, and thus will not deteriorate, wear the gasket. Such sinks do not collect dirt in themselves, like ordinary sinks. Thanks to this unusual design, the bathroom will look stylish and sophisticated. In order for the sink to serve for a long time, it should only be branded, the installation should be handled by a specialist.return to menu ↑ return to menu ↑
Chest of drawers in the bathroom without a sink
Previously, dressers were the subject of bedroom sets, linen and bedding were stored in them. The typical bathroom was equipped with ordinary furniture with sanitary ware, nobody heard about the dressers. Currently, designers in the preparation of the project of the interior of the bathroom offered a chest of drawers as a separate element. It looks great with other furniture, has become indispensable to use, it contains all the necessary items.
Looks great with other furniture
Like other furniture, dressers are:
- combined from different materials.
And the modern bathroom now does not even appear without such a subject. Like a chest of drawers, it is necessary and useful as:
- shower cabin;
- bedside table;
What can be made of?
A chest of drawers in a bathroom, like other elements, can be made of various materials:
- MDF and chipboard.
These materials are used for a long time, every year the manufacturing technology is improved. But, like the rest of the materials, they have different reviews, characteristics - who respond positively, recommend, who find the negative sides.return to menu ↑
Furniture made from a small-dispersion fraction, has strength, the basis of this material is a mixture of wood chips and improved polymers. But this mixture does not tolerate moisture, to give strength, experts cover the surface with a special paint, or glue with protective films with a decorative effect. For the manufacture of dressers MDF plates - this is a good option, they are rational in use, easily cut, it gives the product the necessary shape, the desired unevenness, configuration.
The chest can be made of different materials.2
Wood chipboard furniture is highly sensitive to moisture. The production is based on larger chips. Due to the fact that the raw material is very absorbent of moisture, it is tried to cover it with a special water-repellent coating. Apply this material for the manufacture of dressers, but unfortunately, after a short period of time, moisture makes itself felt.
Those parts of the dresser on which moisture is placed, mainly the legs of the dresser, may soften, the pressed chips will crumble along the edges, as a result, the material will rot. Products from such material are inexpensive, this is probably the only plus of such material.3
But plastic furniture is not afraid of moisture. Such dressers can be placed in any corner of the bathroom, without thinking that the legs of the dresser will be damaged. But, like any other material, plastic has significant drawbacks. Products from it are fragile, gentle. You can not put heavy things on them or put large items on them, over time they can crack, even if you lean on such a chest of drawers with force, it can not stand.
Plastic furniture is not afraid of moisture at all
There may be problems with design. Mostly they have a single color, to give a special bright color, they are pasted over with a special film, or they are painted. Under the influence of constant moisture over time, the film with paint can deteriorate.BoardEIf you choose between a plastic and MDF chest of drawers, then it is better to pay a little, a chest of drawers from the fine dispersion fraction will serve you for a long time.4
Furniture made of wood is the most expensive option, superior to plastic, furniture made of chipboard and MDF. This property has a tree thanks to a special impregnation, which makes the product durable and not afraid of moisture. A chest of drawers made of natural wood is not harmful to health, it is not a chemical plastic. It is possible to achieve a decor by means of a covering of a product in various ways - from a varnish to polymeric paint or a film. Such a chest of drawers will really stand out from the rest of the furniture, and if necessary, and the selected texture in harmony with other positions.
From natural woodConsidering separately the advantages and disadvantages of all materials suitable for making a chest of drawers in the bathroom, we can conclude. One of the best materials is wood, but if its price seems high, you can consider MDF, which is well suited for making this furniture. Return to menu
Based on the designs, dressers for use in the bathroom are mainly of two types - straight and angular. Chests of any design in the bathroom look beautiful and stylish, it all depends on their placement, with what other furniture they will be in harmony. Before ordering a dresser, you need to make a decision - where is the best thing about will look - near the wall or in the corner:Straight dresser - This is a regular dresser, similar to the one that is in the bedroom. It is usually located along the wall and harmonizes well in the bathroom. The height, width and length of the product can be quite different, depending on the size of the bathroom itself, the wishes of the customer. Over time, these models will all be improved, manufacturers offer new options for a complete set, which saves space and increases the possibility of more storage of things in the dresser.

This is very convenient if the place near the wall is occupied by other furniture, and the corners are empty. Such dressers can be both plastic and wooden. Return to the menu ↑
Dresser design features
Today, the dressers used in the bathroom do not at all resemble the furniture that used to be - big, bulky and cumbersome. Now this is the original model, a completely different design and project, made individually for each customer, from different materials.
The main feature of the dresser, is that basically they have several large drawers in which you can store the most necessary things for the bathroom - from bathrobes to towels. Small boxes are mainly used for storing small items.
At will here it is possible to place:
- washing gels and powders;
- personal hygiene items;
- toothpastes; shaving products.
On the surface you can also place the necessary accessories. In some models, built-in sink instead of tabletop.
I also want to say about the original version of the dresser, which has recently been in great demand. It is a pierum. Above, on the table top there may be a mirror, which makes it possible to use it as a makeup table. And the height of perfection in the design of the drawers can be called products in which both mirrors and sinks are combined at the same time.
