Bathroom designing would be just considered incomplete without a ‘’standout piece’’ and homeowners would agree that basins, bathroom vanities or bathroom countertops can be considered as the focal point in any bathroom design. Since there are multiple options such as the wall-hung basins, countertop basins, pedestal basins and more, it is important to choose one among these, which will suit the bathroom design just perfectly.

From this article, a home dweller could gather all the required information regarding the bathroom sinks and the factors that they need to consider, to blend in well with their own bathroom spaces.

Perfect Basin for your Bathroom
 

Things To Consider For The Perfect Basin

  • Lifestyle and Location Is the bathroom being designed for the master en-suite or the kids? Pay attention to the kind of traffic, as traffic plays an important factor. For instance, a glass basin would be a big NO and won’t be recommended for a kids bathroom, as they could get damaged easily if carelessly handled. Whereas, the glass basin will suit a master bathroom perfectly, where the traffic is going to be less.

  • Size Matters: The style of the basin can be chosen by considering the entire bathroom space, as the size of your basin should match with the scale of the rest of the bathroom fixtures and bathroom fittings. Moreover, by visualizing the storage and counter space one would need under and/or on either side of the basin would help one in deciding with the size.

  • Bathroom Design Style: Match the basin with the overall bathroom design concept. Since bathroom basins are available in many styles, shapes and materials to choose from, the process has turned out to be an easy one. For instance, if a bathroom is designed with a rustic theme, a stone basin would be a perfect choice
