A basin with a difference.

Another look in bathroom basins shows a large bowl mounted on the top of a bathroom counter or a repurposed hall table, drawer set feature piece of furniture.

Obviously you have to sweet talk your plumber into installing all of the plumbing, cutting holes in the furniture and just generally ‘making it work’ but any good plumber will happily fulfil your wishes to bring your vison to fruition. Make sure you have lots of inspiration photos so there is no question what your vision is. This will keep you happy and your plumber!

Above counter bowls are wonderful for cleaning by keeping the drips and splashes inside their high sides. Make sure you choose a nice deep one.

You can also install a drop-in basin into a marble or solid-surface countertop for a classic and timeless look.
