FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The best type of basin to install in your bathroom will depend on your personal tastes, the space you have available and any existing fixtures that you plan to keep. It should be practical, aesthetically pleasing and blend in with the colour scheme you have chosen for your bathroom. If you are fitting a new shower, shower screen and toilet at the same time, you will want to make sure that the style of basin you choose complements these other fixtures. We have many beautiful bathroom basins for you to choose from so it shouldn’t be hard to find one that ticks all the right boxes.
Inset basins are designed to drop straight into your countertop or vanity unit, which is why they are also known as drop-in basins. They have a lip that rests on the countertop surface but they are also held in place with metal clips and silicone caulking to ensure a good seal. We stock a wide variety of inset hand basins, in many different shapes and sizes.
Undermount basins, as the name suggests, are fitted to countertops from underneath and are held in place with heavy duty clips and caulk or adhesive. Without a lip, they fit flush to the surface. In common with inset basins, they are available in a selection of shapes and sizes to suit all types of bathrooms. Whether you opt for an undermount or inset wash basin, it’s best to have both the basin itself and your new tapware installed by a professional to avoid any future issues with leaks. If you’re not sure which type of basin is best for your bathroom, please feel free to ask for help at any time.
There is no standard size: bathroom basins in Australia are available in a wide choice of sizes. If you’re not sure what size to choose, we suggest measuring your countertop to see how much space you have available and thinking about how you use your existing basin. Some people are more than happy with a small wash basin whereas others prefer larger models that can be used to rinse out clothing or even to wash their hair in.
Yes, if you have the space available there is no reason why you can’t have two hand basins in your bathroom. The main concerns when adding a second basin will be whether there is enough space to accomplish the task easily and whether it will complement the existing aesthetic in your bathroom. If you’re planning to remodel your whole bathroom, you can pick a shaving cabinet, towel rail and mirror that will work well with a double basin and that will leave plenty of space for installation too. For larger families, a second wash basin can certainly be a very handy addition.
If you’re shopping for bathroom basins online at Bathroom Warehouse, you’ll find a wide selection made from a variety of different materials. Vitreous china is undoubtedly the most popular choice, with natural stone, along with stone and resin composites, also highly regarded by homeowners and bathroom fitting professionals alike. All of these materials are durable, good looking and practical, which is why they are so commonly used in the manufacture of quality bathroom basins. And whichever you choose, we have the perfect bathroom accessories to complement your new basin. You’ll also find a great selection of in-wall toilets, drainage fittings and heating/exhaust fittings for your bathroom in our online store.
Vitreous china is actually a glazing technique that is added to porcelain to make it more durable and shinier. It is used by manufacturers of hand basins across the globe and has become the most popular choice for bathroom basins not just in Australia but worldwide. As it is more resistant to stains and scratches than plain porcelain, it will retain its looks for longer, making it a more economical choice.
There are a number of things to think about when you’re choosing a new basin for your bathroom: aesthetics, size, price and quality are some of the more important factors to bear in mind. At Bathroom Warehouse, we pride ourselves on offering a huge selection of quality products at the most competitive prices you will find anywhere in the country, so if you’re looking for bathroom basins in Australia that represent value for money, you’ve come to the right place. And with such a big selection, you are guaranteed to find a wash basin that meets your needs as far as aesthetics, size and quality are concerned too.
Good quality bathroom basins should not crack easily but if something heavy is thrown with enough force into a vitreous china or stone basin, it could easily damage the surface. Other reasons that basins crack include rapid temperature changes and the folds that are normally present in natural stone. These folds may develop into very thin cracks in the future but they should not affect the structural integrity of the basin.
