Guide to Buying a Counter-top Basin

What is a Countertop Basin?

countertop basin is also known as a sit-on sink and is a sophisticated sink design that sits on top of a vanity unit. Rather than the sink and plumbing being connected to the wall it goes underneath into the vanity unit and is therefore concealed giving a seamless look to your bathroom. In this blog, we are going to look at the different styles of sit-on sinks, and the benefits of sit-on sinks.

A countertop sink is practical as well as beautiful as it reduces the amount of water that splashes out due to its height. Our countertop sinks are perfect for any style of vanity unit so you can opt for a double vanity unit, a single vanity unit or a wall-hung vanity unit in any size.

The Benefits of Countertop Sinks?

Countertop sinks have more depth and higher sides than undercounter sinks and this extra height can reduce the amount of water that spills over resulting in less cleaning. You also get extra storage space with a sit-on sink as they are installed at a height meaning there is more countertop room for toiletries and other bathroom essentials. There is also more room inside the vanity unit. 

A countertop basin is so versatile when it comes to matching your decor. It completes the contemporary minimal bathroom providing a fresh feel whilst being perfectly suited to a more traditional styled bathroom too.
