Countertop Basins & Washbowls
Countertop basins and washbowls look great proudly standing atop wall-mounted vanity units, we love them in combination with a co-ordinating composite stone or Corian style worktops. They add a lavish spa-like aesthetic to your bathroom space while still retaining a chic and natural feel.

Wall Hung Basins
Wall-mounted or wall hung basins are sinks that can be fixed or bolted to the wall to create the impression that they are ‘floating’. These basins are often combined with a simple, sleek bottle trap. Wall hung basins will save precious floor space as they do not require a pedestal and they are often available in compact & short projection variants making them ideal for small bathrooms and cloakrooms.
