If you are anything like me in relation to planning everything meticulously, down to the finest details and taking care to leave no stone unturned, then you will certainly have some preferences when it comes to choosing the style, shape and number of basins that are to be fitted into the bathroom in your home; if you are fortunate and financially healthy then it will be for your en-suite bathroom.
Believe it or not, there are so many different options when it comes to bathroom basins, so it is certainly (well in my opinion anyway) worth putting some time aside, and sparring a reasonable sized budget so that you can do your due diligence, compare, discuss & decide upon the vanity basin or basins that will add some more class and character to your bathroom. Picking the right bathroom sink can help make it that little bit more luxurious or relaxing and if possible it would be perfect to not be restricted by money, as you would probably be surprised or even shocked by the price tag that some of the high-end basins come with; they really can get quite expensive. Bathroom basins come in such a variation of materials and styles, so this can make picking the solo basin or set of basins quite a challenging task, so you may want to ask your friend or partner for some help with finding and deciding upon the right one/s for your bathroom.
You need to think about the rest of the fittings in the bathroom and ensure that what you choose fits in well with everything else. You should also consider the style of tap and plug system that you and perhaps others who will be using the bathroom, prefer; you might like the single mixer taps, or perhaps you have more of a liking for twin taps that separate the hot and cold water for you. Also, do you want the tap/s fitted to the basin or should they be fitted to the wall or a vanity unit and reach over and into your basin/s? You should next consider what you would like your basin to be made from, and this is for sure will depend on what the other fittings are made of; ceramic, different types of stone or glass are the most common materials you will be choosing between. Another thing to think about, that many forget, is the weight of the basin/s; you need to choose something that will not be too heavy for the location you will be fitting it.
Many bathroom vanity units actually come already fitted with basins, as a package, however even in those cases you will usually have a choice of basin that you would like fitted to your unit, so when it arrives at your home, you already have the vanity unit and basin combo of your choice, ready to slot into your bathroom and complete your master piece.
