Benefits of countertop basins
One of the main advantages of countertop basins is that they are very easy to install. In most cases, you must drill a hole in the counter and then drop the basin in place. This makes them a great option for people looking for a quick and easy bathroom makeover.
It’s also very versatile and comes in a wide range of shapes, sizes and materials. Whether you are looking for a traditional ceramic basin or something more contemporary, like a glass or stone basin, there’ll be a countertop basin to suit your needs.
Countertop basins can lend a high-end look to any bathroom and create a real focal point in the room. If you’re looking for a basin that will make a statement, then a countertop basin is the way to go.
How to choose the right countertop basin
When choosing a countertop basin, there are a few things you need to keep in mind:
Make sure the basin will fit comfortably on your countertop. Wide basins are great for giving you plenty of space to wash, while smaller basins are ideal for smaller bathrooms or en-suites. Also, consider the depth of the basin — shallower basins are easier to access but can splash more, while deeper basins hold more water but can be a bit more difficult to reach.
Ensure that the basin will complement the rest of your bathroom furniture. Popular shapes include oval, circular, rectangular, and square, but more unusual designs are available if you’re looking for something a bit different.
Countertop basins are usually made from ceramic, glass, stone or metal, so look at the different options and decide which one will best suit your bathroom.
The basin’s colour should match the rest of your bathroom. White is always a popular choice, but some more unusual options like pink, marble, or metallic are available if you want to make a statement.
What is a countertop basin?
A countertop basin sits on top of a counter or vanity rather than being set into it. They come in a wide range of styles, from classic and traditional to modern and minimalistic, so you can find one to match your bathroom decor perfectly.
What is the difference between a tabletop basin and a countertop basin?
Tabletop basins are just another name for countertop basins. While most manufacturers refer to them as countertop basins, some prefer to describe them as “tabletop.” In terms of design and fitting, there is no difference between the two.
What height should a countertop basin be?
There is no set height for countertop basins, as they can be fitted to any countertop or vanity unit. However, most standard bathroom vanities in Australia are around 850mm – 900m high. As countertop basins are generally designed to sit on top of these vanities, you may want to opt for a lower countertop to account for the height of the basin. Countertop basins come in varying depths, so check the exact dimensions carefully before you buy.
