Decorate Your Bathroom With Special Wash Basin Manufactured In UK

May 14th 2014 at 3:52 AM

A wash basin can be as ornate or as simple as your preferences allow. Whatever you do, do not skimp on your washbasin. This bathroom mainstay is one of the most important features of a bathroom - it can make your daily hygiene rituals a little more luxurious. This is why it’s essential that you buy the best wash basins manufactured in the UK for guaranteed quality.

As bathroom fixtures go, your washbasin is typically the most visible (especially if the toilet is off in a corner and your bath and shower is behind a curtain or a door). Wash bins steal the spotlight, so to speak. For this reason, you’ll want to choose an attractive and functional sink.

The first thing to determine is where the wash basin will be installed. You want a sink that does not constrict the bathroom’s traffic flow.

You also need to decide on a size. Will the wash basin be for a large bathroom used by multiple occupants? Then you might need a deep and wide wash basin for maximum versatility and to keep spills and splashing to a minimum. You can easily find large wash basins that are made in the UK. Will the wash basin be installed in a small guest bathroom, or perhaps a half bath? Then you should consider a small corner (90-degree) basin large enough for occasional use and for washing hands, but still relatively unobtrusive. Your wash basin’s size should be proportionate to the scale of your other bathroom fixtures.

How big of a counter space do you require on either side of your sink? You can have a small shelf hung beside the basin, or a ledge built in.

Then, you need to choose the style. Washbasins manufactured in the UK come in a wide range of colours and materials. Ceramic and porcelain sinks are light (relatively) and come in configurations that can be hung directly on the wall, or held up by pedestals. They are generally cost-effective. For high-traffic bathrooms, premium granite wash basins work better. They require heavy-duty support

(a counter) for safety.

You also need to shop for tap fixtures and handles for your wash basin (if you are not buying a set). The most important thing to do is to ensure that your faucet will clear the height you need it to clear to be comfortably usable.

Once you have made your choice, you need to consider the plumbing required for the installation. Calling in drain and plumbing experts will ensure that your bathroom renovation becomes successful.
