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.


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 Basin

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


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 Modern Bathroom Basins

I remember years ago when every house had the same basin design. They were all semi-circular in shape with space for two taps, soap and a full pedestal which made the basins a freestanding unit.

Today there are such a wide variety of modern bathroom basins available from those with a full pedestal to those with a half pedestal and those that mount directly on the wall. Each one comes with its own advantages and styles, so you can easily find the one that best suits your overall bathroom design.

Full Pedestal Modern Bathroom Basins

Many homes still use the full pedestal modern bathroom basins because they are freestanding and if you don’t have room for a vanity, then these are a top choice. The advantage these days is that these modern bathroom basins come in a selection of shapes to blend in with any bathroom design.

You can choose from square, rectangular, oval, semi-circular and modern options. They are all available in a brilliant white which helps keep your bathroom looking bright and fresh.

Half-Pedestal Modern Bathroom Basins

The half pedestal modern bathroom basins are a welcome addition in any bathroom size or design. These modern bathroom basins help you maximise floor space and while they still use a pedestal to hide plumbing they leave ample space below for any items, such as a small bin, you may want to place below.

Again these modern bathroom basins come in a selection of shapes and sizes to blend in with any bathroom from the semi-circular design to the square and rectangular choices, there are even those specially designed for cloakrooms with the tap to the side to maximise space.

Wall Mounted Modern Bathroom Basins

Wall mounted modern bathroom basins are a great option for any bathroom as you can mount them to the desired height and are not restricted by a pedestal. The advantage to these modern bathroom basins, over and above the selection of shapes and sizes available, is that when combined with a polished chrome bottle trap they can really enhance the bathroom space.

A rule of thumb that I always stick to when choosing modern bathroom basins is to ensure the shape I choose is the same shape I use throughout the space. So my basin shape is similar or the same to my shower, bath and toilet.

Spectacular Glass Bathroom Basins

What are the three things you want in your bathroom besides the obvious toilet, basin and shower? I can tell you the three things I want is light, space and style. Combining these three things into any bathroom whether they are large or small, can turn your bathroom into a spectacular masterpieces.


Natural light is the best light any home can benefit from. Though we aren’t all lucky enough to have natural light flooding into our homes, especially into our bathrooms. Light in the bathroom gives the bathroom a spacious feel, so if you can you want to capture as much light as you can and keep it in the bathroom, brightening the space and making the room feel bigger than it is.

When it comes to light you can add stylish lighting, mirrors and glass bathroom basins. The basins don’t block any of the light in the room, they are there completely see through, offering a very bright and spacious look to any bathroom.


How many times have you said “if only I had a spacious bathroom.” I think everyone wants a spacious bathroom, a space where you can relax and unwind in a hot bath and a place you can move around in.

Add a glass basin to your bathroom

We are not all lucky enough to have spacious bathrooms, in fact the majority of bathrooms are small and compact. The smaller the homes are built, the smaller the bathrooms get. This just means that you need to be creative when decorating and designing your bathroom.

Glass basins are a fantastic feature in any compact bathroom. They give the feeling of space by allowing the light to flow straight through them. Of course they are also modern in design, which is an added bonus.


As I said before there are three things I want in my bathroom, the first two were light and space. But it is important for me to have a stylish bathroom. The bathroom is my oasis, a place to relax when the children have gone to bed. I can lie back in my bath and soak my stress away.

While lying in the bath I want my bathroom to be a stylish and welcoming room and glass bathroom basins help achieve this. They are very modern and stylish in design and are a welcome to any bathroom design, complementing the area while enhancing any natural light that comes into the room.
