Find The Perfect Countertop Basin

Opting for a countertop basin is one of the biggest bathroom trends for 2020. You want one which will suit the style of your bathroom, be easy to clean, and one you like the look of. However, finding the right style can be tedious and drag on when there are so many to choose from! To help you, we have put together a guide all about them, including the top 10 bestselling countertop basins.

What is a Countertop Basin?

As the name suggests, a countertop basin is a sink which sits on top of the counter. This is an alternative to having the basin set into the counter, mounted to a wall or standing alone. While they have been popular in the past and can be quite retro looking, they have also come back into fashion. There are now a lot very stylish and tasteful basins available for purchasing.

Benefits of a Countertop Basin

  • Often spacious
  • High sides which prevent splashing
  • Higher height which can often be more convenient
  • Often fitted with mixer taps which is more convenient than individual taps for hot and cold

The main thing to think about is the space available in your bathroom, and what size of basin you would like to choose. If you are somebody who will be using it for washing their face each evening, then we suggest a wider, deeper basin. But if you just have a small space to be upgraded, there are also some lovely small countertop basins to select from.

If you are good at DIY, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to fit it yourself. But it is not always the easiest task to get right, so might be worth calling in a professional if you are less confident.

2. Thin Countertop Basin

The Dover 385mm Countertop Basin is the perfect minimalist countertop basin. Its square shape with crisp thin edges gives it a very modern and versatile look.

This basin does not come with space for a tap attached to it. We like this as it allows you to personalise it even further, choosing any style you want. If you want to stick with the modern minimalist theme, we recommend the Reginox Clara Single Lever Copper Tap. This copper bathroom tap has been very popular through 2019, and we expect the trend to continue.
