It’s all very well shopping for baths, taps and shower fittings for your new bathroom. But if you’re also shopping for a wash basin then you might not realise just how important it is to find the perfect basin for your needs and space. Choosing the right shape, size and style of basin can make a real difference to your new bathroom – and we’ve got some helpful information to help you make the right decision.
What Size Do You Need?
One of the most important things to think about when shopping for a new basin is its size. Here at Bathrooms Direct Yorkshire we stock a huge range of different sizes of baths and basins, so you’re sure to find the right size no matter how large or small your space. A corner basin is an excellent choice for a downstairs WC or en-suite, whilst a small round basin is also an excellent choice when it comes to saving space.
You’ll find everything from large rectangular basins to oval countertop basins and double basins in our collection. Choose the wrong size of basin and you might find it juts out awkwardly from the wall or prevents you from opening or closing your bathroom door!
Traditional or Contemporary?
The next thing on your mind when you’re basin shopping is style. If you live in a period property or a cosy cottage, chances are a traditional rectangular washbasin is just the ticket. More modern apartments and homes may suit an oval or circular countertop basin better. You should carefully consider the type of taps you choose for your basin too. Traditional style individual hot and cold taps, contemporary individual taps or a mixer tap (no more splashing your face with cold water in the morning) are just a few of the options to choose from.
It’s All in The Brand
For some people, the brand of baths, shower fittings and basins is of the utmost importance. In our collection you’ll find basins from brands such as Villeroy & Boch, Geberit and V & A Baths, so there’s plenty of choice. We stock both traditional and contemporary styles in a huge range of shapes and sizes, and if you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, you can always ask us!
Ultimately, choosing a basin that doesn’t complement the rest of your new bathroom can be a costly mistake, so it’s more important than you might think to get it right!
