Choosing the right bathroom basin for you comes down to several factors. You need to consider the space you have in your room, whether you want a traditional or contemporary look, the kind of basin you want and of course, your budget. Basins come in several different types including:
Without a doubt, the most important thing to keep in mind when buying any kind of furnishing items is how much room you have available for installing them. As you're making your calculations for height, width, and depth, don't forget to make some allowances for void areas (space that will be left empty for easier movement and cleaning).
Taking some time to perform your measurements in advance will pay off by making the ordering process easier. You'll have a much better understanding of what you have room for and what's going to look good in the space you have.
Decide also about the colours and materials you like best. This will make it a little easier to browse the collections because you can filter based on the criteria you select. You can also more easily coordinate different items based on having similar colours and materials.
Finally, don't forget about the style of taps and other fittings you will want to use with your basin. Many basin styles may come with holes already included to make it easy to install certain types of plumbing fittings. The number and placement of the holes can make a really big difference to the options available. Choose a bathroom basin that's compatible with the style of plumbing you prefer.
Shape is another important thing to consider. A square basin is more common these days and gives a tidy appearance. A round basin has advantages of not having corners, so it's easy to clean. Some people may feel the round shape is a bit old fashioned, but if you have an oval shaped bathtub, a round basin will complement the look nicely. It really comes down to your own feelings. The square style is modern and stylish; the round style is easy to maintain and more traditional.
It's interesting that people sometimes get so caught up on the aesthetic matters that they forget about practical considerations. Depth, shape, tap placement, and more are all determining factors not only on how the basin looks but what you can do with it.
In general, a wider surface area will give you more options than going for more depth, but a bathroom basin that is too shallow can also be a bit limiting. So do give some thought to how you might want to use your basin and what kind of things you're going to want to put in it. Not everything you do with a bathroom basin is immediately obvious until you think about the things you already like to do with one. Then it gets a bit clearer what your expectations might be, including taking care of the shortcomings of the basins you've used before.
