While the need for functionality is critical, there is still plenty of room to allow you to express your personality and style through the bathroom basin, whether you’re looking for an ultra modern feel or wish to go more traditional with a gorgeous copper sink that evokes memories of times past.

There are many decisions to be made before making your sink basin choice - wall basin or vanity? What type of vanity? What about a pedestal sink? Does the material that the basin is made of make a difference? What colours will complement your bathroom?
To assist you with your decision, we have compiled this bathrrom sink buying guide
Wall mount basin sinks
If you’re looking for a minimalistic modern bathroom, it may pay you to look at our range of wall mount bathroom basin sinks. Before deciding on a wall basin unit, it is important to ensure that you have sufficient fixing points and plumbing where you want to place the basin.
Pedestal basins are a wall basin that is also fixed to the floor as well as the wall. They make a great choice for traditional style bathrooms and their design makes them a perfect choice for the smaller bathroom, ensuite or powder room.
Our vintage white pedestal basin, made from fireclay and with single and three taphole options makes the perfect choice for those looking for the vintage bathroom feel.
There are varying bathroom vanity basin designs all of which have their advantages. The choice ultimately may come down to aesthetics. You can choose from any of these vanity styles-:
● Inset basins have a raised rim and sit inside a cut hole within the vanity unit. The rim height can range from being almost level with the service to a few centimetres high. The rim provides the advantage of preventing some spills, but on the downside may prevent water from being easily swept into the basin.
● Undermount bathroom sinks require a custom hole to be cut in the vanity unit. The sink sits beneath the top of the unit allowing water to be easily swept into the sink. This particular choice is popular with families. Our range of undermount or undercounter basins have fairly standard wash hand basin sizes, ranging in width from 440 mm wide to 560mm wide.
● Countertop basins come in a wide variety of styles and colours ranging from our aged copper sinks through to our modern pompeii round fireclay basins. Some of these types of sinks are called vessel sinks. They are decorative in nature and often laced in bathrooms that don’t see a lot of traffic.
An interesting variation is the slimline wall mounted vanity basin that could be called a pedestal vanity.
What are basins made of?
The basins in our bathroom sinks are made of either vitreous China/ceramic material, copper or fireclay. All have their advantages.
Vitreous china is an extremely tough material that is hard to scratch or crack. It provides a non porous surface.
Fireclay sinks are made by fusing clay and glaze at very high temperatures to produce a ceramic material that is similar in appearance to enameled cast iron.
Copper has a distinctive look and is noted for its antibacterial qualities and strength.
You can choose from a range of premade vanity units that conform to standard Australian design measurements. Vanity units come in a range of colours and finishes and are made from MDF or timber, Styles range from sleek modern, to premium timber. Corner stands and traditional washstands are all available.
