There are many designs, colours, and styles of washbasins. One pedestal sink is not equal to the next one, and they come in a combination of materials and finishes for every bathroom. Shapes include: triangular, oval, round, and square plus variations of those basics. Depths can be shallow or deep, and fixtures can virtually be whatever tap and accessories you wish. Some traditional models have indentations for the soap bar. Others have toothbrush holder slots, hand rails, towel rails and more.
How to Choose Your Traditional Wash Basin
First, make a note of the colour of the bathroom. Next, the dimensions which your traditional washbasin must fit - including height from floor, pedestal dimensions, and the size and configuration of your existing basin water pipes. Do you wish to have a single tap for hot and cold water or a pair of taps? What material would go best with your bathroom - enamel, acrylic, stone?
Popular Wash Basin Styles
- Entirely square and boxy looking, no cupboard and a very short pedestal extending just below the sink
- Completely rounded and shaped as a serving bowl would be, resting on a counter which does not have cupboards below:
Rounded basins with square shaped inner bowls
Triangular and angular basins
Trendy traditional basin taps are those which are 'industrial' inspired and come shaped just as chunky as the sinks they serve. Basin Mixer Taps are the preferred, with lever style adjustment knobs.
