Choosing the Best Basin for Your Bathroom

May 15, 2018


The basin – A key feature in any bathroom, whether you’re planning to make it the hero of the room or tie in seamlessly with existing components, there’s a lot to consider to ensure you make the right decision. The number of choices available when selecting a basin can leave builders and renovators feeling a little dazed when trying to narrow down which basin is the right one for the space?

To take the hard work out of your selection, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite designs and features to help you choose the perfect basin for your dream bathroom.


1. The under counter basin

The under counter basin, featured in our Heron Collection, sits underneath your bench top with the rim fixed on the underside of the benchtop rather than sitting on top. This offers a minimalist, clean look with little of the basin visible. Another great advantage is that excess water and spills can be wiped straight into the sink, making it a perfect choice for family bathrooms that need to be easy to clean.


2. The Wall Basin

Our wall basins can be fixed directly to the wall without the need for a bench top, creating a sleek and minimalist look. With no vanity more of the floor is visible, which creates the illusion of a larger room, making it perfect for those working with a small space. Find the perfect wall basin in our Cygnet Collection.


3. Semi-recessed basin

Another one for those who are space conscious is a semi-recessed basin from our Acacia Evolution range. This gem still gives the illusion of a bigger bathroom but allows for vanity storage. This design also frees up space on top of your vanity, allowing more room for cosmetics and other everyday bathroom products.


4. Vessel basin

This above counter basin comes in both round or rectangular designs and is perfect for those looking to make the basin the hero of their bathroom. Another great feature is that these basins offer ample bowl depth and width, reducing splash.
