A good basin can be a real feature in your bathroom, and many options are available that are stylish, practical, and affordable. However, before you buy one, you will need to consider a number of things including the size, colour and style of the bathroom. Whether you want a modernist rectangular basin, or a more traditional Victorian vanity unit with built-in drawers, there are basins available to suit every style of bathroom.
The question of where to place your bathroom basin can be tricky. Many can be fixed on top of a pedestal, whereas others need to be built into a worktop or vanity unit. Deciding which approach to take for your bathroom basin is often a matter of space and can also be down to personal taste in terms of appearance.
When you buy a bathroom basin, there are a few extra things you will need to buy along with it. These include: a basin waste, taps, potentially a pedestal or unit, and if it’s going to be wall-mounted you will need a bottle trap.
