The price for bathroom basins will vary based on brand, the type of product, and the materials they are made from. Comparison shop to get a great overall deal. Don't cut corners though on the quality and end up with a product you have to replace again soon down the road. However, don't pay a price beyond what you must in order to get something that is well made.
A very functional design can be incorporated for bathrooms as small as 5' X 8' in dimension. Sacrificing a large closet or partitioning off a small area of a larger room will provide the area needed. The first tip should be taking into account the location of electrical outlets and water sources. If these vital utilities do not already exist, the key components of the room, which are the toilet, sink and tub or shower, should be roughly sketched into the floor plan, to allow proper placement of these utilities. The second factor will be the entrance door placement, as this will determine the layout of the bathroom. If the door is located in the center of the room, the toilet and sink will usually be placed on one side of the room, with the tub or shower on the other side.
As with the country and traditional bathrooms, cast iron baths are a must. Either a roll-top or slipper bath will do, and although you don't want holes or rust, the more dilapidated it looks the better. Even consider running sandpaper over the paint work and claw feet. It's always worth looking out for old fittings at antique shops and car boot sales.
