Choosing a counter top bathroom basin

A counter top basin is a great addition to any bathroom, traditional or contemporary. This is a bathroom sink that sits on top of something like a shelf, cabinet or vanity unit, and is not connected to the wall at the back. This gives the impression that the sink is just resting on the surface, for a striking visual effect. But what are the important considerations when choosing a counter top bathroom basin? And how can you be sure to make the right choice for your bathroom space?

What are the important considerations when choosing a counter top bathroom basin?

There are a number of important considerations to take into account when choosing a counter top bathroom basin. These include:

  • Size and shape: One of the first considerations to take into account, the size and shape of the space available, and the dimensions of the sink itself, will need to be determined. It’s important to make sure that your counter top bathroom basin fits seamlessly into your bathroom layout, with enough clearance around the sink to meet regulations and requirements.
  • Style and design: Another important factor to consider is the style of the basin itself. You should consider choosing a basin that complements the overall style and design of your bathroom. Countertop basins are available in a wide range of shapes, including round, oval, square, and rectangular, as well as different styles such as contemporary, traditional, or minimalist. As a result, you should select a basin that enhances the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom, and reflects your personal taste.
  • Material: Finally, you should consider the material. Countertop basins are available in a range of materials, including ceramic, porcelain, stone, and composite materials like resin or solid surface. As well as the aesthetic appeal of each material you should also consider the durability of the material and the maintenance requirements. Ceramic, porcelain and solid surface options are highly durable and low maintenance, while stone make take a lot of sealing and maintenance to remain in good condition.
