The basin is an essential part of any bathroom. It provides a place to wash your hands, brush your teeth, and shave. You’ll probably use your bathroom basin more than any other fitting in your home, so it’s important to choose one that meets your needs and fits your style.
Bathroom basins come in a multitude of styles, materials, and sizes. Choosing the right one for your bathroom will depend on a number of factors, including the size of your bathroom, your personal style preferences, and your budget.
We also carry a wide range of fittings and hardware to complete the look, including taps, mixers, plugs, and more. No matter what your bathroom needs are, we have you covered.

Our selection of bathroom basins includes:
- Countertop basins — These sit on top of your bathroom counter or vanity. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from oval to rectangular, and are available in both single and double configurations.
- Inset basins — This type of basin is designed to be inset into your vanity or countertop. They offer a clean, seamless look and are available in a range of shapes and styles.
- Semi-recessed basins — With this style, the basin is designed to sit inside a countertop or vanity, but the front of the basin extends out past the counter.
- Semi-inset basins — Semi-inset basins are set into the countertop but are not flush with the surface. The edges extend slightly above the counter, giving the look of a countertop sink without the height.
- Small compact basins — As the name suggests, this category includes models that are small and compact, making them ideal for powder rooms or small bathrooms.
- Cast stone basins — Cast stone is a strong and durable material that is resistant to scratches and stains. The surface can be sanded down and refinished if it becomes damaged, making it a good choice for high-traffic bathrooms. They come in a wide variety of colours, shapes, and finishes.
- Under basins — These basins are designed to be installed underneath a counter or vanity. They’re ideal for creating a seamless look without the need for the sink and countertop to be the same material.
- Vanity basin tops — A vanity top basin is designed to be installed on top of a vanity cabinet. They come with a built-in basin and are available in numerous sizes to fit different cabinet widths and depths.
- Wall-hung basins — This style is mounted to the wall, usually without a vanity underneath. They’re a good choice for small bathrooms with limited floor space.
In addition to the basin itself, you’ll also need to select taps, mixers, plugs, and other accessories. We carry a wide range of these products to complete your bathroom design.
Bottle traps are installed under the basin to catch the water that drains from the sink and direct it into the plumbing system. They take up less space than a P-trap and are often left exposed under a wall-hung basin. As they’ll be on view, it’s important to choose a style that complements your basin and taps. Our range of bottle traps includes a wide selection of finishes, such as chrome, matte black, gold, and more.
Pop-up wastes are used with countertop and inset basins and are a modern alternative to traditional sink plugs. They sit flush with the basin when closed and pop up when you need to drain the sink. We carry a wide range of pop-up wastes in different finishes to match your taps and basin.
What kind of sink is best for a bathroom?
Bathroom sinks and basins come in numerous shapes, sizes, finishes, and configurations. It’s best to start by looking at some bathrooms you like so you can get a better idea of what you’re looking for. Once you have an idea of the style you want, you can narrow down your search by material, finish, size, and configuration. If you need more help choosing, just send us a message, and we’ll be happy to assist you.
Which type of basin is best?
The type of basin you choose will depend on the size and layout of your bathroom, as well as your personal preference. A countertop basin looks sleek and stylish, while a wall-hung basin can save space in a cramped powder room. If you’re looking for a minimal modern look that’s easy to clean, an inset or semi-recessed basin might be the right choice for you.
What type of basin is the most durable?
Porcelain, ceramic, and cast stone are all durable materials that can withstand the rigours of daily use. They’re all resistant to scratches, stains, and chipping, so you can rest assured that your basin will look good for years to come.
