How to Choose a Bathroom Basin

Choosing the right type of bathroom basin is an important task. Because bathroom basins are going to provide an elegant look to your bathroom interior. Bathroom basins are the first noticeable thing when someone made the walk into your bathroom. Also, it is one of the most regularly used areas in your bathroom. So, it is important to choose the right bathroom basin that will long last for many years.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Bathroom Basin:

The following are some of the factors you should consider before buying a new bathroom basin.

Size of Your Bathroom:

Bathroom basin designs are available in various sizes and styles. Most of the bathrooms in modern houses are having limited space. Wall-hung basins and corner basins are the perfect choices for limited-space bathrooms. Pedestal basins are the quintessential choice for many family bathrooms. When you are selecting the basin, it is important to remember that the basin you choose will not occupy too much space and doesn’t cause any excessive spillage. So, keep that in your mind when selecting the one that fits your needs.

Height of the Basin:

The height of the basin must be equal to the height of your waist for convenient use. A comfortable height allows them enough space to add the vanity unit under it and the mirror above the basin for easy storage access. The height also depends on who is likely to use the basin. If you have children or elder people in your home you may find it difficult to stand for long consider positioning the basins at a lower height for easier use and access.

Mounting Options:

Bathroom basins come in different sizes and options and can be installed in the bathroom in many different ways. For example, a corner basin needs to be fitted in the corner of your bathroom and the countertop basins are suitable to mount on the worktop or the vanity unit. Apart from the different mounting options, it is important to know about basin waste. Basin waste is not included with your basin when you buy a standalone basin and this may vary depending on where you are buying your basin products.

Basin Taps:

Once you decided on the style of your bathroom basin, then you need to consider the number of basin taps. The number of tap holes drilled in the basin at the time of manufacturing will decide the tap type you can choose. Most of the bathroom basins available in the market are having one tap hole. Nowadays, most of the taps are mixer taps, which combine both hot and cold. Also, it offers a modern design to keep in trend with contemporary styles.


A good quality bathroom basin will long last for up to 20 years. But, the life of the faucets and taps varies depending on the quality. Purchase the one for your bathroom that fits your needs and budget.
