At the recent KBB show, The Bathroom Showroom couldn’t help but notice a very modern bathroom trend emerging. Countertop basins of all shapes and sizes took centre stage. Typically, these basin types don't resemble those of standard built-in basins. Yet they offer more in the way of creativity when designing your bathroom. At The Bathroom Showroom, we have stunning countertop basins to suit every bathroom style and size.

Why Choose a Countertop Basin?

Countertop basins are also known as free-standing basins or vessel basins. A huge advantage of choosing a countertop basin is its overall aesthetic. 
Offering a minimal design, they are the most versatile, adaptable, and, indeed, more practical. Simple to install, they work well with every vanity, countertop, tap choice, and bathroom suite. 
Ultimately, countertop basins provide a stunning finishing effect to all bathroom designs.
The great thing about countertop basins is that you really can experiment with shape, size, and style. From squares and rectangles to ovals and circles, countertop basins work on many surfaces. This is because, unlike a standard built-in bathroom basin, you aren't restricted by dimensions. 
What's more, countertop basins showcase a fabulous contemporary and modern look. Yet, they can also work well in just about any bathroom design.
Many people select a countertop basin because of its stylish resemblance to a large bowl. These basin types need not be connected to the wall. So, they offer increased space and opportunity to position to suit. 
Countertop basins are said to be the more comfortable choices regarding their usability. As they provide an adjustable height, when compared to built-in basins, they make using them more convenient. 
So, it’s little wonder then that their popularity is surging in many a dream bathroom!
