Common Types of Wash Basins

8/10/2011

The wash-basin is a central component of any bathroom. Because the basin is used so much, it pays to choose a model that will suit the needs of the household as well as complement the theme and style of the bathroom. Three types stand out among changing designs.

 

Bowl Basin
Set atop a countertop or cabinet, the bowl basins appear almost separate from the underlying surface. Resembling a salad bowl, a marble carving or a deep, metal dish, bowl basins can be made from myriad material. Because of the way the bowl is installed, it tends to sit higher than average basins. Its height also requires faucets that can reach up over the edge, distinguishing the bowl basin's appearance.

 

Wall-Hung
For simplicity, the wall-hung wash-basin may be the perfect setup. Affixed to the wall, with no countertop or stand beneath, the wall-hung basin is an efficient use of limited space. Like the pedestal, it does not offer any storage capacity. It is also rather plain. Wall-hung sink basins vary in size, but they tend to be smaller than other styles. For bathrooms with a lot of traffic, or for those used by children, this may not be a useful option because of the lack of counter space. For smaller secondary bathrooms, the wall-hung may be the perfect choice.
