I remember when a bathroom basin was an ugly product that stood against the wall with a full pedestal, these basins still look good in a traditional or cottage style bathroom, but with modern bathrooms being the top choice these days, inset basins work better, enhancing the space.
To explain, inset basins sit within a counter top or vanity. The easiest way to describe them is that the sides of the basin are just above the vanity or counter top. The basin itself sits inside, this gives a stylish and elegant feel to any bathroom space.
The best thing about these inset basins is their modern design. They are usually available in square or rectangular designs, which really compliment a minimalistic or modern bathroom.
Why Choose Inset Basins?
You may be wondering why inset basins would be the best choice for your bathroom. It’s easy to see that they are stylish and will blend in with any modern design, but what else do they have to offer?
The first thing you will realise is how they can help you maximise your floor space in your bathroom, this is such an important step when working with smaller bathrooms.
Because the basin sits within an existing vanity or counter, you are not taking more space away to fit your basin.
All bathrooms benefit from having an abundance of space, of course this isn’t always practical especially these days when we are all dealing with smaller bathroom designs, using inset basins over full pedestal modern bathrooms, just helps you get that extra space that your bathroom needs to feel spacious.
What You Will Need
The greatest thing about inset basins is that they don’t need a pedestal, all you need is modern taps that blend in with your bathroom design and a bottle trap. Now don’t worry, I’m not talking about the ugly plastic bottle traps you find in your kitchen cupboard. The bottle traps available for the inset basins are stylish and finished in chrome, which adds to the sophistication of the space.
Another advantage is that if you are mounting your inset basins on a counter top, you can leave the bottle traps on display without concern, it will help add to that modern feel you are trying to achieve and ensures you have ample space below the counter at the same time.
