Wash basin buyers guide
Are you looking to upgrade your current bathroom by adding new fixtures? Or are you revamping your entire bathroom and looking for some inspiration? A new basin can provide a classy touch to a new bathroom or even give you the brainwave you need to start off your entire redecoration.
When you’re looking for a new basin for your bathroom it can be easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of different sizes, shapes and styles on offer. There are traditional and classic designs, freestanding models and wall mounted as well as modern finishes which can really bring your bathroom into the 21st century.
At ukbathrooms.com, there are hundreds of styles and designs to suit any home. Each comes with its own set of pros and cons, so you can decide which features you want for your own design. Matching accessories like bottle traps and pedestals can also be added to give your wash basin the finishing touch.
Finding a basin for your cloakroom
If you’re installing a downstairs toilet, space can be at a premium. This is where it becomes even more important to conserve space and make sure your basin is both attractive and practical.
This is where the cloakroom wash basin comes in. These compact designs are perfect for giving a bit more space but also fitting where a standard sized wash basin would not.
The Ideal Standard Studio 45cm wash basin is one of the best examples of simplistic design. The curved outer edge saves on space while also adding a sleek finish to your toilet. The wall mounted basin comes in two designs – one to fit into a corner and one to fit straight on to the wall - and has two taps on either side. It comes in a clean white finish and can be accessorised with chrome waste and bottle stops.
For another contemporary design, choose the Vitra Milton wash basin. This clean white cloakroom sized basin comes in two sizes – 45cm x 35cm and 57cm x 47cm. This means you can measure your cloakroom and make sure you get the right fit first time, while also giving you the option of a slightly larger size if your space allows it. This versatile unit also gives you the choice of one or two tap holes so unlike the Ideal Standard Studio, you are able to pick between separate taps or a mixer unit. The basin is wall mounted and can be fitted with a full pedestal.
For a delicate looking wash basin that won’t seem overbearing in your cloakroom, the Roca Laura design is perfect. This totally customisable basin comes with a shallow, curved front and a fine tapered edge, giving it an air of sophistication.
It comes in three sizes, 520mm, 560mm and 600mm which makes it perfect for a cloakroom that can accommodate a slightly larger wall mounted basin but not something up to a standard size. This style also comes with a full or semi pedestal option, so you can customise it to suit your space.
You are also able to choose between one or two tap holes to decide between separate taps or a mixer and the white finish will give your cloakroom a fresh feel.
To hide unsightly pipes and make your cloakroom look clean and tidy, the Laufen PRO B hand basin and half pedestal is the easy choice. This design leaves nothing exposed as the half pedestal design is long enough to hide the pipes underneath your basin but, unlike a full pedestal, it takes up a lot less space.
The Laufen comes with a pre-drilled tap hole to fit a mixer tap which makes it easier for you to install but only allows you to choose the one tap style. It also includes fixing bolts to make it a lot quicker to set up.
The simple, elegant design fits seamlessly into any cloakroom and the ergonomic design provides ample space behind the curved front to store soaps or nail brushes. This basin is specifically designed to take up less space, so will make your cloakroom feel roomier.
It comes in two sizes - 45cm x 33cm or 50cm by 36cm – so you can make sure it fits into whatever size cloakroom you have.
If you’re really pushed for space, then a Laufen PRO C basin is the right choice. Coming in at just 50cm x 25cm, this petite wash basin barely juts out into the room at all. The simplistic, minimal design gives you all the functionality of a wash basin without the wasted space.
With only one tap hole, which can be sited at either the left or right hand side of the basin to suit your specific cloakroom design, this basin is set up for a mixer tap. This is just the right size for hand washing, but without becoming overbearing in a small space.
The traditional touch
If your cloakroom is more traditional, then you might want to go for the stunning Burlington Edwardian cloakroom basin. This period style wash basin measures just 510mm x 300mm x 265mm and stands 930mm tall when used with the optional wash stand. It has a sharp, clean design and would fit in well in any cloakroom, while giving it a unique and timely feel.
It comes in clean white and has two pre-drilled tap holes suited to the classic design. The optional wash stand, which is sold separately, is polished chrome and gives your wash basin an unusual look. A towel rail can also be fitted to the underside of the basin itself, giving you a convenient place to hang towels while also saving space in the rest of the cloakroom. A chrome bottle stop completes the Edwardian look.
Burlington also offer a Victorian style wall mounted basin – also with its own unique design. This period fixture comes with two tap holes and again has the option of a chrome wash stand.
The Imperial Oxford cloakroom basin has all the antique touches you'd expect from a classic fixture but also conserves space. The 535mm basin has elegant details and looks great paired with either contemporary or traditional decor. For an added twist, it comes with different finishes for both the basin and pedestal. You can have plain white or mix it up with floral designs in blue or pink to really add something special to your cloakroom.
The Villeroy and Boch Hommage wash basin gives character to any cloakroom while also being practical and user friendly. The classic yet interesting stepped edge design is completed in a bright white finish. The Ceramicplus finish is stain resistant and will repel limescale to keep your wash basin looking fresher for longer.
For added versatility, this sink comes with one or three tap holes, so you can choose which setup you require.
Standard sizes – special designs
Add a timeless elegance to your bathroom with the 1930s inspired Ideal Standard Plaza basin. This octagonal design will suit both a traditionally decorated bathroom as well as a modern home. It looks best on a pedestal but this is optional, allowing you to save space if your bathroom is smaller.
It comes with two tap holes and measures 580mm x 205mm x 465mm.
For a cross between the contemporary and the conventional, look no further than the Vitra Serenada wash basin. This elegant mix between clean contemporary lines and a delicately bevelled design mixes a modern feel with a nod to the past. It comes with one or two tap holes and a range of styles to suit your bathroom. A pedestal and bottle trap can be bought separately to complete the look.
If you really want to bring your bathroom up to date, invest in the Bauhaus Turin. This slimline, wall mounted wash basin can also be fitted into a worktop or vanity unit. The rectangular shape is efficient while also adding elegance. It comes with a single tap hole or it can be adapted to fit a three hole mixer set.
Large basins for luxurious bathrooms
For a large basin with a simple design, the Laufen PRO A is your best option. This basin comes in 850 x 480mm or 1050 x 480mm sizes. It comes setup for one mixer tap as standard but a three tap hole version can be ordered to give you the flexibility in your bathroom.
And if you find yourself fighting over the sink, the Roca Kalahari double basin is the answer. This is truly the basin for a dream bathroom. It can be mounted on the wall or set into a vanity unit and it comes in a glossy, white finish. The modern design will add that opulent feel to your bathroom.
For a traditional bathroom, look no further than the Imperial Oxford square large basin. This 635mm design comes in a clean, elegant white with moulded period features giving a nod to days gone by. The china fixture can be hung from the wall or combined with a full height pedestal and wash stand to add a classic look.
