Beautiful Inset Basins


These days’ modern homes are the top choice combined with a beautiful bathroom to complement the space. Bathrooms have become one of the most important designs in a home and people are spending a fortune on renovating their bathrooms each year to ensure they become a masterpiece.

Inset basins are very popular these days, they are stylish and modern, but at the same time they are convenient and help you save on space wherever possible.

Design

Before looking at any basins you need to pay careful attention to your overall bathroom design. The advantage to inset basins is that they can be added to your current bathroom design, they fit onto counters and vanity units with ease. This gives you the ability to give your bathroom a well-deserved facelift without breaking the bank.

Inset basins come in a selection of sizes and shapes to blend in with any bathroom design.

Space

Space plays an important role when choosing any bathroom products, including inset basins. You can get inset basins in square and rectangular designs and both large and small designs. You can easily find the perfect match to blend in with your bathroom design with ease.

Because so many bathrooms in the UK are on the compact size, you need to make every effort to ensure they are light and bright spaces which in turn makes them feel spacious. With inset basins fitting onto counters and vanity units, you immediately maximise your floor space, making even the smallest bathroom feel bigger than it is.

The Final Touch

With any basin tap selection is important and the same applies to inset basins. Taps should be chosen according to the bathroom design and shapes you have incorporated in the space. If you have gone for a modern design with plenty of straight edges, a square or rectangular inset basin with square taps is the perfect addition to the space.

The same applies if you have chosen gentle curves with plenty of round and oval bathroom products, the inset basins have curved and sophisticated design choices and combined with the right taps can really enhance your bathroom space offering that “wow” factor.

The Amazing World of Tap Selection


If you’re renovating your bathroom or just looking to give your bathroom a little facelift, tap selection isn’t overly exciting and you may not consider it amazing.

When you think that years ago there were the cross topped taps and that was the choice you had, there were always a tap for hot and a separate tap for cold, there weren’t mixer taps or single taps. There are so many choices available today and when you think of their modern design, elegant beauty and perfect chrome finish, you can start getting excited.

There are different taps for everything in your bathroom from the stunning basin taps to the modern bath taps and even the convenient bidet taps. Yes bidet taps. Now you’re probably wondering why I would mention these, but bidets are more popular than you may think, in fact a majority of homes in Europe today have a bidet in their bathroom.

OK let’s be honest a majority of these homes that have a bidet in the bathroom don’t use it, but a bidet enhances the bathroom space, makes it look sophisticated and elegant and when combined with the right bidet taps, these items can really make a statement in the bathroom.

Style

It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking for bidet taps or bath or basin taps, you want the same style to flow throughout the space. If you have chosen cylindrical taps for your basin, then you should also choose cylindrical bidet taps and bath taps, you want the style to flow with ease throughout the space.

These days it’s popular to go for the straight edges with square or rectangular designs and there are a host of taps available, including bidet taps that offer this elegant and modern option.

Design

One of the considerations you need to make when selecting taps is your overall bathroom design. You should keep the taps in line with the design. If you have chosen a traditional style throughout the space, don’t go for an ultra-modern tap. The same applies if you have a modern design, be sure your bidet taps and your bath and basin taps are modern and stylish to blend in with the design.

An Easy Guide To Selecting Basin Taps


When choosing basin taps there are a few things to take into consideration, while you may see taps that really appeal to you, you need to ensure they blend in with all your other bathroom fixtures and fittings and that they will work with your new bathroom basin.

Tap Mountings

Before you go online and buy your new basin taps you will need to determine where and how you intend to mount your new taps. Does your basin have two tap holes or one? How close together are the two holes? These are important factors you need to take into consideration and that will help you find the right taps on your first try.

The basin taps you get are pillar taps, these are when you have two holes in your basin, one for hot and one for cold. Preferably if you have chosen a basin with these holes your bath will be the same.

Mixer basin taps are for when you have one hole in your basin for your tap, these taps use the same outlet for both hot and cold, mixing the water to your desired temperature and pressure.

The Finish

Your basin taps should be finished the same as all the other taps in your bathroom. My personal favourite is chrome, it blends in beautifully with the white bathroom products and is very modern and stylish.

There are a variety of materials to choose from, but if you are looking for elegance and style you may want to go with the chrome finish where you can match your bath taps, shower head and even your designer radiator to your basin taps.

Complementing The Space

The one mistake I have seen so many households make when choosing bathroom taps is not taking the design of the bathroom into consideration. Taps are available in the traditional design or very ultra-modern designs such as the stunning ZD Series Mono Basin Mixer, which is straight edged and modern with an unusual curve.

Now this basin tap may be what you have been dreaming of but will look out of place in a traditional or cottage bathroom. The same as if you are designing a modern bathroom and your bathroom products are all square and stylish, then the traditional pillar taps such as the JA Series basin taps would look out of place and ruin your overall design.
