How to Choose a Bathroom Basin
A bathroom basin has the opportunity to become a focal point of a bathroom’s design or just another element of a bathroom’s design. Deciding between the two is the first step in choosing a bathroom basin.
In the past, a bathroom basin has merely been a functional component of a bathroom design. But today, with all the types and designs available, they can become a real show-stopper. Selecting the right basin for your vanity and overall bathroom design comes down to choosing the right type, shape, and material.
Types of Bathroom Basins
There are many types of bathroom basins to consider; there are wall-mounted basins, pedestal basins, above counter basins, inset basins, under counter basins, and semi-recessed basins. And your choice may affect which type of vanity you can choose also. Wall-mounted and pedestal basins, for instance, are standalone and don’t require a vanity, while the others do.
If you’re designing a contemporary bathroom, then above counter basins are a natural choice. They are modern in design and very much ‘on-trend’.
Bathroom Basin Shape
Bathroom basins come in an array of shapes and sizes. While which you choose is totally up to your personal preference, just remember that some will be easier to clean than others.
Common bathroom basin shapes include round, oval, rectangular, and square. However, there are also variants of each shape, such as rectangular basins with curved corners. Keep in mind, the rounder the basin, the easier it will be to clean.
Bathroom Basin Material
As with the types and shapes, are also many different types of materials and finishes. The most common materials, which our range of bathrooms basins are made from, are vitrified ceramic and vitrified china. Vitrification is the process whereby a material is converted into the glass-like substance to provide added strength and durability.
