The bathroom is one of the most relaxing spaces, and it is incomplete, without a functional and aesthetic washbasin sink. Choosing the perfect washbasin for your bathroom is an easy job only if you know for sure what you should be looking for.

There are a few things you should keep in mind when choosing the washbasin for your bathroom. Read on to learn how you can pick the best fit for your bathroom.

1- The Size of your Bathroom

2- Mounting

3- Faucets

4- Material

5- Consider Storage Options

1- The Size of your Bathroom:

You have to select the washbasin according to the size of your bathroom. The washbasins come in various styles, designs, shapes, and depths, so choose what is proportional to your bathroom size.

If your bathroom is spacious, you should opt for a countertop, double sink, or pedestal basin, and if your bathroom is compact, you should opt for a small, single sink or corner washbasin. Also, make sure that your bathroom does not look cluttered — leave enough space between the shower, toilet, and the basin.

2- Mounting:

Now that you have decided the size of the washbasin and where it will be installed, you have to check out the type of basin you have selected & its installation process. Here are some of the basin categories:

· Wall-Mount Basin: Here, the basin is directly attached to the wall, and so it does not require any support of legs or counter or table to hold it in place.

· Free-Standing: Freestanding or pedestal sink gives the vintage vibe, which is very much in-trend right now. The legs of the freestanding sink will hide the drainpipe, giving the bathroom better aesthetics.


· Above Counter Basin: Here, the washbasin sits on the bathroom tabletop and will create a decorative focal point in your bathroom.

· Undercounter Basin: Here, the basin sits perfectly under the bathroom tabletop and blends with it. It is the best fit for the minimalist bathroom.

3- Faucets:

Choosing the right facet is as important as choosing the right washbasin. The finish of the faucet should not clash with the other fitting of the bathroom; it should match with the style of the basin, and the overall bathroom.

There are many different styles of basins with different finishes, like black, gold, bronze finishes are available in the market. There are also sensor faucets available, which are really in-trend right now.

4- Material:

It is important to choose the right material for the washbasin, as it will define the look, feel and style that you wish to contribute to your space. The most common washbasins are ceramic washbasins.

Ceramic washbasins are made with a special process and, in a way, are environmentally friendly. Some other washbasin materials are glass, metal, and ceramic.

5- Consider Storage Options:

Your bathroom should have ample bathroom furniture so that you can store towels, brushes, and other toiletries. It will make your job much easier, and you will thank me for it later.

And last but definitely not least, you should choose a well-reputed brand, like AGL, to buy all these products. It will guarantee the best quality products, and they will also provide a warranty of the products.
