Choosing the right cloakroom basin

After looking through these cloakroom basin ideas we’re sure you’ll have seen something that you like. Picking the right cloakroom basin is important when you’re you’re short on space but there’s lots of other things to consider as well.

The best place to start is with your budget. As you’ve seen there are many basins which you can choose which are excellent value. Always set yourself a budget and aim to find something which is affordable for you. Why not take a look at our favourite cloakroom basins under £50 for ideas? The next priority is size. All of the options we’ve looked at in this guide are great space-savers but some are smaller than others so check the dimensions and ensure you get something which won’t take up too much room.

Materials used and functionality fall under style options and really tend to be options to consider once price and size has been considered. Materials used may affect the quality of the item and functionality is generally a bonus should your basin have it but it isn’t a necessity.

Other essentials you'll need for your cloakroom suite

Although a cloakroom basin will be a big feature in your cloakroom, you’ll also need a cloakroom toilet and cloakroom taps. Cloakroom toilets have a shorter projection and are compact in size to ensure that they’re excellent space-saving fixtures. Cloakroom taps are also compact and are usually smaller versions than other taps you can get for your bathroom. This is because a cloakroom basin is smaller than a normal bathroom sink and a normal basin tap would look out of place.
