    Vessel basin

    Vessel washbasins are designed to sit elegantly on top of basin units or worktops. Separate taps mounted into the worktop lend a look of hotel-style luxury, while a mixer mounted on the vessel’s deck (where available) gives a more contemporary feel.

    Countertop basin

    Countertop washbasins are designed to be set into a countertop or basin furniture unit, concealing all the pipework, and of course any bathroom clutter, below, to give you a clean, tidy bathroom.

    Semi-countertop washbasins are only partly recessed into furniture, hiding the pipework and the usual bathroom clutter, but are more comfortable to bend over than a fully-recessed countertop washbasin.

    Special basin designed to fit at 45 degrees into the corner, making it possible to use awkwardly shaped bathrooms or cloakrooms.

    Handwash basin
