Stand Mounted Basins Buying Guide


When it comes to making a bold statement in your bathroom there are few fixtures that will give you as much of an attention grabbing focal point as a stand mounted basin. These stunning, elegant designs have a slightly nostalgic feel about them, which is why they are usually found in more traditionally styled bathrooms. Here we'll be looking at why one could be a great upgrade for your home.

Is a stand mounted basin right for my bathroom?

This all depends really. The first thing you need to do is measure how big your bathroom actually is as some of these basins can take up a fair chunk of space. If you have an absolutely tiny cloakroom or en-suite for example, then we'd recommend another basin type just to keep things practical. That's not to say that you can't fit a stand mounted basin in a regular small bathroom however, as there are some on our website with slightly more compact dimensions which shouldn't take up too much room at all.

Although these designs are generally considered to be more traditional as we mentioned earlier, it doesn't mean that you can't fit one in a contemporary bathroom. Pair your chosen design with a set of sleek, modern taps instead of the classic crosshead ones and you'll see the whole package take on a completely different character.

What do I need to buy separately?

You should budget for taps, wastes and bottle traps as these items normally won't be supplied with a stand mounted basin.

How easy are these basins to install myself?

As a general rule we'd recommend hiring a quality professional to tackle any plumbing work for you as this should avoid any unpleasant surprises. If you are quite handy at this kind of thing however then you probably won't struggle too much fitting a stand mounted basin yourself.
