Our ceramic inset basins are ideal for integrating into a bathroom worktop. These are an elegant design option for those looking to remove some of the more obvious lines in the bathroom space, and all our inset basins provide a sleek finish to bathroom countertops.
Undermount basins, also known as under counter basins, makes for a space saving addition to any bathroom. Our ceramic undermount basins are modern, timeless and versatile, perfect for any commercial or domestic applications.
Wall hung or wall mounted basins
Wall hung or mounted basins are perfect for bathrooms that are short on space. They offer a compact and stylish option that doesn’t require loads of room, and so are perfect for en suites or half bathrooms. Also known as floating sinks, these basins are mounted against the wall, and come with either one or three tap holes.
Above counter basins
Above counter basins, or counter top basins, are designed to be set directly on your bench or counter top. These make a stylish addition to modern and sleek bathrooms, especially for those who are after a contemporary look.
Semi-recessed basins sit halfway between freestanding and undermount basins, designed to be partly recessed into your bench or counter top. These basins are a great choice for smaller bathrooms or powder rooms, and feature a wide tap platform for flat storage
Freestanding and pedestal basins are mounted to the bathroom floor. With the right design, freestanding basins can be used as a statement piece in the bathroom, bringing elegance and grandeur to the space.

Cleaning and Care Tips
The best way to keep your ceramic hand basin looking new for as long as possible is to clean and care for it well.
All our basins are designed to be easy to clean and maintain, but here are some tips to help you improve their lifespan.
- Everyday cleaning can be done with a soft sponge or cloth. Use an all-purpose cleaner if necessary, but avoid abrasive sponges or cleaning products.
- Use a mild bathroom cleaner for more intensive cleaning. There is no need to use aggressive cleaning products with chemicals that might damage the basin and also harm your health.
- For stubborn stains, leave a small amount of limescale remover in the basin overnight, before rinsing it off.
While our ceramic basins are resistant to household acid or alkali products, ceramic can be damaged by excessive exposure to these substances.
As a result, we recommend wiping the basin daily with a damp cloth and addressing any soiling as soon as possible to avoid stains.
What basins are best for small bathrooms?
We recommend wall mounted ceramic basins for small bathrooms because they take up the least room and require no floor space.
How high should a basin be installed?
A hand basin should generally be installed around 3ft/1m from the floor, however this will need to be lower for wheelchair-accessible hand basins. For these we recommend 2ft/60cm floor clearance.
Can I use a wall mounted basin as a vanity basin?
Our wall mounted basins can have furniture fitted underneath to transform them into a vanity basin. However, we do carry a range of semi-recessed and above counter basins, which might be a better option. Please contact us directly if you need more information about our products, or for assistance to pick the one most suitable for your application.
How durable are ceramic sinks?
Our ceramic sinks are sturdy and strong, and are generally resistant to chipping, scratching and staining when used the right way. For this reason, ceramic sinks are ideal for everyday use, and should last a long time even when used repeatedly.
