Why choose a semi-inset basin?
If you love the contemporary look of a countertop basin but want something more understated, these minimal and modern basins are a perfect choice.
Unlike old-fashioned freestanding sinks, semi-inset basins are fitted into a countertop or vanity unit. This style means you have plenty of counter space for all your bathroom essentials, and you can also take advantage of the space underneath the basin.
This style of basin looks sleek and modern, and they’re a fantastic choice for creating that 5-star-hotel feel in your own home.

How to choose the perfect basin
When you first start looking for a new basin, narrowing down all the different options can be a little overwhelming. Even if you’ve decided on a semi-inset basin, there are still so many shapes, sizes and styles to choose from.
The most crucial thing is to make sure you pick a basin that will fit into the available space. It’s also important to think about how you will use your basin. For example, if you have a large family, you might want to choose a double basin.
Once you’ve considered these things, you can start thinking about the style of basin you want. Do you want a round or square basin? Round basins are great for small bathrooms as they don’t take up much space, but if you choose a semi-inset model, you’ll still have plenty of counter space. Square basins are a popular choice for contemporary bathrooms but are not as easy to clean.
These days, you can also buy basins in a huge range of materials, colours and finishes. White is always popular, but you could choose a more unusual colour or material to make your bathroom stand out.

What is a semi-inset basin?
