Your bathroom is your personal safe space. Creating your dream bathroom can help you build your very own oasis of relaxation. You will also have to deal with a lot of stress if you don't find high-quality plumbing supplies in Perth. Renovating or building a new bathroom is a fascinating process but can become a huge hassle.

In this article, let’s take a look at some of the best types of bathroom basins available in Australia that will help you build your dream bathroom. So, without further ado, let’s dive right in.

Things To Look For When Choosing Basins For Your Bathroom

1. Material

Basins come in a variety of material choices like ceramic, marble, porcelain, steel, natural stone, and glass. Some of these materials are incredibly durable and can withstand a lot of use and abuse. However, other materials are very delicate and need to be handled with care.

2. Size

Bathroom basins come in various sizes, from a small single-person basin to a large his and hers basin. Deciding the size of basin you want for your bathroom is crucial as it can make or break the overall design of your bathroom since a basin is one of the most significant pieces of plumbing fixtures for bathrooms in Perth.

3. Budget

Tuck Plumbing Fixtures in Osborne Park displays various products ranges to fit the customers' needs. It would be best to decide how much you wish to spend on your basin before you finalize a design for your bathroom since some basins from the premium range can be quite luxurious.

4. Shape And Design

Different shapes and designs are available for washbasins these days, thanks to the growing demand for unique looks from customers. Choosing a shape and design that fits your overall design philosophy is vital to bring together the whole house's design aesthetic.

Various Types Of Bathroom Basins

There are various types and kinds of basins you can buy for your bathroom. Here are a few of the most popular and commonly used ones -

1. Inset Basin

Inset basins are the most popular of them all. Commonly found across houses and businesses in Australia, inset basins sit inside a counter or a vanity unit and can be used with wall-hung plumbing or top-mounted taps.

To name a few brands, Inset basins are available from Caroma, Argent, Villeroy & Boch, Studio Bagno, Duravit, Fienza.

Inset basins are easier to clean and maintain and offer a wide range of shapes, sizes, and designs. They go well with any kind of design, which makes them an ideal choice.

2. Above Counter Basin

Above counter basins are usually designed to act as the centerpiece of your regal bathroom. They can be easily mounted on a bench, a vanity, or a shelf which allows them to help brighten the overall appearance of your bathroom.

To name a few brands, Above Counter Basins are available from Apaiser, Caroma, Argent, Villeroy & Boch, Studio Bagno, Duravit, Fienza, Dado Quartz, Victoria & Albert.

Above counter basins are ideal for bathrooms with a lot of space as they fill up space and act as the focal point of any bathroom. They can be installed side by side for his and hers look or individually.

3. Under Counter Basin

Are you a very practical person who wants absolutely no fuss in your bathroom? Yes? Undercounter basins are ideal for you.

Undercounter basins are extremely easy to maintain and use, making it the ideal choice for anyone who doesn't have a lot of time to maintain their bathroom and prefers function over form.

To name a few brands, Under Counter Basins are available from Caroma, Argent, Villeroy & Boch, Studio Bagno, Duravit, Fienza and Victoria & Albert.

4. Semi Recessed Basin

Do you lack space in your bathroom but still want a full-size washbasin? A semi-recessed basin is an answer to your problem. A semi-recessed basin can be easily mounted to a smaller vanity area or a tabletop that doesn't have space for a full-size basin. 

To name a few brands, Semi Recess Basins are available from Caroma, Argent, Villeroy & Boch, Studio Bagno and Duravit.

A semi-recessed basin brings the tap closer to you and makes it easier to wash and use. The basins are also offset, which means they can be installed in smaller, tighter spaces.

5. Wall Hung Basins

A practical solution to saving space, wall-hung basins are mounted directly into a bathroom wall, thus eliminating the need for a countertop. Wall-hung basins are usually styled with illuminated wall-hung mirrors, which give the bathroom a very rustic and utilitarian feel.

To name a few brands, Under Counter Basins are available from Apaiser, Caroma, Argent, Villeroy & Boch, Studio Bagno, Duravit and Fienza.

Wall-hung basins make extraordinarily efficient and effective use of space and accent the whole bathroom without taking a lot of additional space.

6. Concrete Basins

Are you looking to give your bathroom a rustic, natural look and feel? Concrete basins are your friend. They come in various styles and can be installed on a countertop or individually by mounting them in the wall. Concrete basins give a bathroom a raw and industrial look which many Australians prefer.

Why Choose A Concrete Basin?  

Concrete basins are very sturdy and durable. In exchange, you give up the refined and polished look of a ceramic basin, which is a big plus for some people.
