Varieties of Curbstones With Bathroom Sink
At this time, there is a great diversity . Select the appropriate functional and at the same timetime aesthetically attractive furniture becomes difficult for the owners of the apartment, who want to beat the interior of the apartment in a new way. The choice of a curbstone for a sink will depend on the bathroom itself, its design, the space provided, and on the amount of finance that the landlord has.
Despite all the variety of materials, fromwhich are made of shells, as well as the numerous versions of their colors, the pedestals themselves have only three modifications: they are on the legs, on the base, and as a suspended structure. Below are the features and characteristics of each species. Great popularity is also enjoyed .
Advantages and disadvantages of pedestals
In fact, as such, the shortcomings of thesethe pedestal is not. The presence of this model in the bathroom will not interfere with the cleaning in it, moreover - it can be argued that the curbstone will remain in its original state even in the event of a flood. It is known that in the space between the cabinet and the floor, the necessary air circulation is provided, which in turn has a beneficial effect on the furniture in the bathroom, and on the microclimate in general, which provides comfort and coziness. However, you should still pay attention to whether the headset is stable. Stability is ensured by the presence on the legs of silicone gaskets, which keep the tile or other floor covering material in the same condition.
When choosing the appropriate model, the preferenceIt is given to metal chrome legs, which, unlike plastic ones, will not fail even under conditions of increased loads (for example - with careless shifting).
Features of pedestals on the basement. Their shortcomings
Unlike the previous model, these pedestals havea number of shortcomings. The main one is the inconvenience of cleaning under the sink. The fact is that at the floor level the sink is closed by the panel. At the beginning of use it may seem that dirt will not accumulate under the curbstone, but it is not. In this case, the water will accumulate under the housing, dust accumulates, which as a result can lead to the spread of fungus and mold.
Another important problem is thatThe material from which the curbstone is made is sufficiently exposed to moisture. And in case of contact with the floor surface (especially if it is heated), material is heated, resulting in its peeling and drying, and also loss of appearance. This can only mean one thing - the lifetime of such a cabinet will be reduced several times.
Features of the use of suspended bollards
Of the three versions of thumbs, this model is the moststylish and modern. Such a curbstone not only fits perfectly into a small bathroom, but also is ideal for a spacious bathroom. The use of a suspended cabinet in a small bathroom will allow you to visually expand the space, in view of the fact that below the floor level the area will not seem cluttered, which makes the interior very easy.
It should be borne in mind that the volume withinthe thumbs will be insignificant, especially when used in small bathrooms, which limits the possibility of operation. But if the bathroom has a large area, then this problem is easily solved by purchasing cabinets, as well as placing additional shelves.
Plus, when cleaning, there will be no problems, which makes this model the most applicable in the conditions of urban apartments.
However, a small problem can arise whenfixing this structure to the wall. Everything depends on the bearing wall, to which the cabinet is attached. A reliable fastening is not always possible, since walls can be made of a fragile material - such as plasterboard or plastic. Before fixing the pedestal, check these points and make sure that there is enough space for the drain pipe.
