The Right Basin


The first step to choosing a basin is to decide who will be using it. Adults, children, guests or all three? This is important when considering how many basins you need, what shape and material. If you experience the 'morning rush hour', then a double basin might come in handy. An above counter basin is perfect for an ensuite, but for the kids or family bathroom, the inset or vanity basin might be easier to use. 

Are you going for a classic look, or soft-edged and organic, or perhaps something minimalist and contemporary? Whatever you decide, be clear about your choice and stick to it. With the amount of basin designs out there, knowing exactly the look you're after will help you make the right choice. 

Bathroom basins can be divided into 6 basic types; Wall Basins, Vanity Basins, Semi Recessed Basins, Above Counter Basins, Under Counter Basins and Freestanding basins.
