People nowadays have more and more choices when doing home renovations, you can choose to stick with built-in utilities which come together with your house key, or customize your home items with your own style and design. Yes, even a functional item like your washbasin in your bathroom.
When most of your guests would probably use your bathroom to wash their hands when they are visiting you, it's time to let them know your detailed orientated personality and good sense of taste by letting them have a pleasant "bathroom experience". Choosing the right washbasin is one of the manypathways to achieving that.
When there are alot of choices out there for washbasins in the interior design market, here are some useful and practical tips for you to choose for your bathroom.
1. Consider your bathroom size
The last thing you need when you have to rush to your toilet for inner urgency (yea, you know what I'm saying) is having a washbasin that is too big that it blocks your way. Consider your bathroom size when choosing a washbasin, weather it's big enough to include a vanity cabinet, or a corner washbasin to save you some space.
2. Your user habit
Well different from my first point of view, your basin size depends on the amount of times it is used daily, If you are quite a vigorous person and loves to enjoy the cold water splashing on your face, a washbasin with a bigger capacity to catch your spill-out water when washing your face is always better than a delicate tiny washbasin just for hand washing. Or, if you have a family member with 4 legs, it can be a bathtub for your loved one too.
3. Choose the right style and material
When renovation and home decor become a mix and match, a small item will either fit in your home theme perfectly or become an eyesore. So choose the right style and material to suite your home theme. You can choose a copper basin to suit your rustic home, a concrete basin for a contemporary look, or go Scandi with a simple plain white ceramic basin. Just always remember to choose materials that is also easy to clean. If you can bare the dried water-stains, a glass washbasin can be on the list as well.
4. Additional function with a design creativity
Not satisfied with just a typical washbasin? You can simply add on some additional value to it, like for example. Instead of a pedestal one, choose a wall-mounted basin with a short wastewater drain to include a utility console underneath. Or customize a counter top for a multiple utility attachment to a semi-recessed basin, simple and neat.
For your reference, here's a picture showing different types of washbasin. Choose a suitable one to suite your bathroom and home theme. Let your personal style and good sense of taste showed even in your bathroom.
