Bathroom washbasin

lavabo bagno, mobile con lavabo

The washbasin is an essential accessory for the bathroom: we wash our face, hands, sometimes our hair and maybe even a baby. But... how do you choose a washbasin? What are the criteria to be considered? What materials should be used? How do you avoid choosing a nightmarish washbasin

In this WIKI we deal with this subject with useful articles and creations. In particular you will read:

Single basin or double basin? 

It is important to consider the design aspects when deciding to buy a washbasin. A common question, especially if the bathroom is large enough, is whether it is better to have a single or double wash basin in the bathroom. And how much space is needed for a double basin? And what types of double washbasins are available on the market? 

We answer all these questions in this article: the duble washbasin in the bathroom

Washbasin for the bathroom: material

One of the first things you need to decide is the type of material you want your wash basin to be made of. The most commonly used material for washbasins is certainly glazed ceramic, in the classic white colour. Of course, this is also the cheapest material: a ceramic washbasin can cost a few tens of euros. Ceramic has replaced marble, which is being used less and less in the bathroom due to problems of absorbency and stainability.

The pros of ceramics are:

  1. Low price;
  2. Easy to clean;
  3. It does not stain or absorb.

The shortcomings of ceramics are:

  1. Predefined shapes and sizes, not customisable;
  2. Fragility when dropped.

Corian bathroom washbasin

Among the other materials that make up modern bathroom washbasins today we find Corian and other types of "solid surfaces" that are becoming increasingly popular and prominent in the world of bathroom furniture.

It is a versatile material that can be adapted to countless shapes and sizes; there are no 'standard' sizes for Corian tops, in fact they can easily reach 2 metres in length. White is undoubtedly the colour with which this resin is associated, but thanks to the possibility of adding colour pigments directly into the mix there is a wide range of choice.

Bathroom wash basin: porcelain stoneware

Porcelain stoneware, the new protagonist in the home, is another good, modern option. It is characterised by its typical square shape and minimalist beauty, boasting infinite qualities in terms of resistance to heat, scratching and wear.

You should know that a stoneware washbasin is almost always integrated into a bathroom furniture unit with a stoneware top or covered entirely with stoneware. These have an unmistakable style and, like stoneware sinks, are characterised by square and essential lines. 

We talk about them in this article: bathroom furniture with stoneware top

Bathroom cloured washbasins

A very interesting trend for creative people is the use of coloured sanitary ware and washbasins. The coloured washbasin will give the bathroom an extra touch of eccentricity and sophistication, which we promise will not go amiss.

You can find several examples in this article: coloured washbasins and sanitaries

Bathroom washbasin: which tap?

Faucets in the bathroom should always be matched, so when you go to choose a faucet you should consider how it relates to the various spaces in which it will be present: does it fit in the shower, on the bidet or next to the chosen sink?

Hardly any of the bathroom elements live independently, so just as the washbasin influences the choice of tapware, so too does the tapware influence the choice of washbasin. It all depends on what struck us first and what weight we give to one or the other detail.
