Use Your Basin to Complete Your Modern Bathroom Design


Modern bathroom designs are increasing in popularity. Up until a few years ago the bathroom was just a necessary space in the home, today a lot of emphasis is placed on the bathroom and their design is as important as the kitchen or living room.

When it comes to the bathroom, a modern, luxurious or spa-inspired bathroom can impact on your home’s value, in fact having a stunning and functional bathroom space can increase the value of your property and make it more appealing to prospective buyers should you ever decide to sell.

What You Need for the Modern Bathroom Design

A modern bathroom design doesn’t need to be minimalistic. Of course if you want a minimalistic design use plenty of white, chrome and glass with straight edges, such as rectangles and squares.

Modern bathrooms can use both straight and curved edges in their design. One of the best options for a modern design is the counter top bathroom basins. These basins sit on top of an existing shelf or vanity and come in a selection of shapes and sizes to blend in with any bathroom décor.

The counter top bathroom basins ooze elegance and sophistication and are a welcome addition to any bathroom design. Then there are the baths, from the magnificent freestanding baths to the slipper baths. Bear in mind that your counter top bathroom basins and bath should be a similar shape, you want to carry the same design throughout the space.

Counter Top Bathroom Basins

Once you have chosen your larger bathroom products for your modern bathroom design and have chosen counter top bathroom basins there are a few things to take into consideration. The first thing you will notice is that not all the counter top bathroom basins have space for a tap. This means that you will need to mount your tap on the wall above the basin, though this can add that final touch to your modern design.

Be careful to choose the right size counter top bathroom basins, there is nothing worse than having a tiny basin in spacious bathroom area or a large basin in a small bathroom space. Take the measurements available into consideration to ensure your counter top bathroom basins enhance the space.

The Different Bathroom Basins


There is such a wide selection of bathroom basins available on the market today and this can make the decision on which one to add to your bathroom a very difficult one. With such a wide selection to choose from, you should embrace the ability to find the one perfect match that will complement your bathroom space, rather than feel frustrated that there are just too many to choose from.

Years ago you had one choice, the traditional basin with full pedestal. Where was the excitement in that? Today there are counter top bathroom basins, inset designs, modern choices, glass options and wall hung styles. Designing a modern bathroom has never been easier.

The Selection

Counter top bathroom basins have become a very popular choice. These can be mounted on top of a counter or a slab, depending on how you have designed your bathroom. These basins are available in a choice of modern designs from the stunning rounds to square designs or even the bespoke designs.

These counter top bathroom basins blend in with any modern bathroom design and can make a great statement to the space, adding elegance, sophistication and style to any bathroom.

The glass basins are also a popular choice and a good selection for smaller bathrooms where you want to maximise light. These basins are made to the highest quality and are exceptionally durable, which means they will not break when you place hot water in them. These glass basins are available in a similar design to the counter top bathroom basins where they can be mounted on a counter top or slab to make a statement in your bathroom.

The biggest advantage with counter top bathroom basins is that you don’t have to have that full pedestal any more, the plumbing can be added in the cabinet below or you can use a bottle trap that is minimalistic and makes cleaning the bathroom easier than every before as there is nothing under the basin so you can just swipe it with the mop.

For a stylish modern bathroom design choose your counter top bathroom basins to match the shape of your bath or shower enclosure, if you have chosen square with straight edges, stick to the design. The same applies if you have chosen an oval bath or a shower enclosure with a curved edge, choose a round counter top bathroom basin to blend in with the space.

My Top Choices

There are four of these counter top bathroom basins that really stand out for me, they are all Phoenix and they all are in a brilliant white, perfect for the stylish and modern bathroom.

The round counter top bathroom basins are one of my favourites. I can picture these in a cottage styled bathroom or the most modern and minimalist bathroom. Being completely circular with a very deep bowl, these basins really stand out. What’s best is there is no place for a tap, so you can choose your taps to attach above the basin on the wall and flow like a waterfall into the deep bowl, simply stunning and very stylish.

Then there are the rectangular design. Again these are deep bowled designs in a brilliant white. What is so great about these counter top bathroom basins is that they are the ideal choice when all your bathroom items are square, such as a square shower, square toilet or even a square bath, they match the décor and add an elegant flair to the bathroom space.

There is a very unique rectangular shape as well which always catches my eye when looking at counter top bathroom basins. This design has a flat back but a curved front, again in the deep bowl design. It is unique and something different to add to a bathroom, giving it a sophisticated look and a definite “wow” factor.

And last is my favourite of all the counter top bathroom basins, the square design. This design is so unique that if I could I would have it in every single bathroom design throughout the country. These basins have a circular base that raise up into a square design with spectacular curved edges. This unique design is simple, stylish and sophisticated and is a welcome addition to any modern bathroom design.
