I just found a great resource for modern plumbing fixtures that are not too expensive. Usually when you buy plumbing (unless you buy it all in a vanity), you have to purchase the drains and everything in an a la carte fashion. So I went though and picked what I would want to buy if I were remodeling my bath. Which I just might.
Far left is the Luka Vessel Sink priced at $247. Middle top is the drain, priced at $34.95. Middle bottom is the p-trap, also priced at $34.95. The p-trap is the plumbing that carries the water from the drain to the plumbing behind the wall. Usually they are pretty unattractive, but I was pleasantly surprised to find one so nice for so inexpensive. Finally, far right is the Roma faucet priced at $119.
So far, your new bath vanity is costing you around $435. Now all you need is a piece of furniture to go below it. This all depends on the amount of space you’re working with. You could have your carpenter just build a nice floating vanity. Obviously, you’d want it to be structurally sound enough to hold the weight of the sink and all the pressure that comes with using a sink. Not to mention you’d have to treat the furniture piece it to deal with the moisture in the area.
Not a bad starting point for a vanity make-over.
