We supply a range of bathroom basins in a variety of sizes, styles and colours to suit all bathrooms.
There are 6 types of bathroom basins that you need to consider first.
Above counter basins sit on the benchtop. They pair well with wall mixers or high basin mixers which have the length to reach above the basin. Such a basin allows you to reveal the entire shape of the basin, making for a great focal point of your bathroom.
An inset basin sits mostly inside the vanity, with part of the basin exposed above.
For a more streamlined and minimalistic look, we'd recommend going for an undermount basin which sits completely under the benchtop. It makes for easy cleaning since the transition from benchtop to basin is seamless.
For a vanity that lacks width - which is especially common in smaller bathrooms - the semi-recessed basin is a great option. It roughly hangs half on the vanity and half off.
Wall hung basins are another space saving solution and effectively remove the need to even have a countertop / vanity. The pedestal basin is similar to this style, but it is supported by it's own stand instead of the wall.
What materials are our bathroom basins made of?
Our bathroom basins are made of several types of materials.
Vitreous china is a glazing technique which adds a glass based enamel that adds further durability and more shine to the porcelain.
If your opting for a more glossy and durable bathroom basin, vitreous china is a good way to go.
Stainless steel is also a material that many of our basins are made of. You'll see some bathroom basins, such as from Gareth Ashton, that are made from grade 304 stainless steel. This type of steel contains at least 18% chromium and 8% nickel. It's extremely durable and resistant to corrosion and scratches and represents excellent value for what it offers.
Can you ship bathroom basins to my address?
Yes, all of our basins can be posted to your address anywhere within Australia! We ensure they are double packed with extra padding to avoid any issues during transport.
What is a standard size bathroom basin?
There is no standard size bathroom basin. It really depends on the size of your bathroom, vanity space and what you are looking to achieve.
Here is a rough guideline:
Circular basins are around 40 - 50 cm in diameter. Square or rectangular basins are typically 45 - 60 cm wide.
Depth is usually about 10cm - 20cm.
We'd recommend that you measure your countertop to determine how big of a basin you would like. Also consider what you will be using it for.
If it's just for washing hands, then a smaller basin is sufficient. If you want to do more like wash your hair and do other cleaning, then a larger basin could be more appropriate.
If it's your main bathroom and you have the space, a larger basin that is a focal point of your bathroom could be the way to go. An above counter basin is perfect for this.
Should I get a basin with 1, 2 or 3 tap holes?
Most basins come with tap holes or the option to drill tap holes.
A 1 tap hole (1TH) basin is suitable for mono basin mixer taps. These are taps that mix hot and cold water in the same spout.
If you'd prefer to have two taps, there are basins that also come with two tap holes (2H) for separate hot and cold taps. Likewise, 3 tap hole basins are available that suit a spout and two handles. This suits more traditional bathrooms.
