You may wish to go for a vanity unit with a basin on top, which is a smart choice as vanity units offer hidden storage which is always a bonus in helping reduce clutter and keeping the home looking neat and tidy – something most of us find very important in our new bathrooms and for good reason. Some manufacturers have entire matching ranges should you wish to match the vanity unit to other pieces of furniture such as tall storage units. Victorian vanity basins often have flat shelf areas to the sides of the basin for storage, and some have recessed areas to hold soaps.

Victorian and Edwardian bathroom basins were very heavy and with archaic wall fixings and construction of days gone by relied on a pedestal for stability, this isn’t the case nowadays as basins are fitted to the wall via fixing bolts and a timber frame, metal basin frames are available but these are generally only used on the continent or in commercial situations. Purchasing a semi pedestal or full length pedestal with your Victorian style basin is a great way to achieve the authentic Victorian look, and conceal your pipework and plumbing.
