Toilets and bathtubs are the obvious stars of any bathroom renovation, but one important part is often forgotten: the sink. Depending on the room layout, a washbasin can catch the eye above everything else. Buying a new washbasin therefore requires careful thought.
The best washbasin doesn’t let you choose between form and function. It suits your decor and needs. The models differ greatly in type, size and style. Sinks can be made from ceramic, porcelain, glass, stainless steel, or even stone. They come round, oval, rectangular or square. Some are wider, longer, and deeper than others. Some contain one faucet hole, others three, which affects faucet compatibility. You can choose between a sink for a luxurious aesthetic or an undercounter sink for a sleeker, cleaner look. To save space, you can also opt for a pedestal washbasin or a wall model.
In other words, choosing a sink is not as easy as it seems. But do not worry; This guide rounds up some of the best sinks out there. Read on to learn more about what makes each of these products so special.
