Counter Top Basin Sinks

A home sink or basin should not be just a functional necessity in your bathroom or kitchen; it should also serve as a beautiful addition to your interior decor. A counter top basin is not something to overlook because its size makes sure everybody sees it. It resembles a large dish or bowl and sits on the top of the counter instead of in it or part of it. If the basin of your choice does not feature an integrated tap, you might require a freestanding tap for your sink.


Counter top sinks come in several shapes, offering something for every taste. Bowl-like designs look clean and simple, and they offer some comfort and softness in this modern, fast-paced world. Rectangular basins look a bit stricter and more sophisticated with their concrete lines. However, if you want something more adventurous opt for an unconventional shape like oval. You can also play with the colour. Most sinks are from classic white ceramic material, but striking black natural river and stone sinks and basins and the like are also gaining popularity.


You need to determine the size of this elegant vanity sink by the space available in your kitchen or bathroom. As it sits on the counter, determine how much free room you have on there. Measure carefully to choose the right size and also leave some space for toiletries like soap.

Benefits of Counter Top Sinks

Sinks of this type truly stand out and are thus a good way to make statement. These sinks have the nickname "vessel sinks" because the basin brings the image of a vessel to mind. This means that they can hold a lot of water, which can be useful in the right situations.


Not every home is ready for a counter top wash basin. Compared to conventional sinks that sit inside the counter top, these basin models take up lots of space. In a narrow bathroom, they could create a crowded impression. Such sinks are better options for larger bathrooms.
