Hello, my name is Gary. When I went into business, I didn't have a great deal of money. The lack of funds meant that I had to buy commercial premises which had seen better days. The roof was leaking, the plumbing was causing problems in the bathrooms and the interior walls were in need of repair. Thankfully, my brother loaned me some money so I could call in some contractors to work on the building before I opened it to my customers. The workmen were great, they carried out a quick but professional repair and I was able to open for business. My business is doing really well and I couldn't be happier with the building. I decided to start this blog to offer advice to others who are considering hiring construction contractors.

A pedestal sink

This type of sink is characterised by not having any type of cabinetry incorporated into its design. Instead, it is a sink bowl that has been mounted atop of a columnar structure. The plumbing required to make the sink functional is then hidden within the column that is supporting the sink, which keeps it out of sight. These types of sinks are usually installed in guest bathrooms where you would not have the need for storage of personal hygiene items, as the bathroom is not used regularly. However, they are also a great design option for bathrooms with space limitations.

A vessel sink
