How to Choose Your Perfect Basin
One of the main decisions you have to make when furnishing your bathroom is choosing from a variety of types of basin. This task can be quite complicated when you don’t know what you are looking for. Here you will find a few helpful guidelines on how to choose between 7 different options the perfect washbasin entirely designed to compliment your space:
1. The Wall Mounted Basin is as the name suggests fixed straight to the wall providing a minimalistic look to your bathroom. The floor space that it provides can give the illusion of a larger room and it is a great option if you already have storage space. However, to have the desired effect the plumbing needs to be positioned inside the wall making this kind of basin not suitable for any bathroom.
2. A Sit On Basin usually looks like a round or rectangular bowl at the top of a counter. Although to position the basin at the correct hight means that the worktop sits lower than normal, a sit on basin still provides some space for storage whilst making a design statement.
3. The Recessed Basin is the most common sink. It sits below the countertop but has a visible perimeter. This kind of sink is very practical as you can fix a storage unit right underneath it as well as use the counter to put soaps or decorative objects. Also, a recessed basin gives you the freedom to select almost any countertop material, enabling you to design your space according to your individual style.
4. Like the recessed basin, the Semi-Recessed Basin sits below the counter top but is not surrounded by it. Instead, half of the external basin is visible and may be extended from the edge of the counter top. This type of sink gives you the best of both worlds, as it allows for a narrow storage unit underneath whilst also providing reasonable floorspace to a small bathroom.
5. The Undermount Basin sits under the countertop but the rim is not visible providing smooth finish that is easy to clean. Whilst this type of sink provides room for a storage unit and elegant worktop space, it does limit your choice of worktop material.
6. The Pedestal Basin is a conventional and practical solution. The sink sits on a pedistal that hides all the plumbing pipes and fixtures giving a clean look. However, if you are short on storage space this might not be the right choice for you as there isn’t enough space around the pedistal.
7. If extra room and storage space is not what you are looking for, but you want a statement piece to compliment a luxury bathroom, our Freestanding Basins are just what you need. Situated by a wall or even the centre of your space, the freestanding washbasin is certain to make your bathroom stand out from the crowd.
