When choosing your new bathroom, don’t experience that sinking feeling. Be inspired by these beautiful basins as selected by our expert.
Hi. I’m Ruth, resident Interior Designer at Victoria Plum, and I’m here today to bring you some fresh bathroom inspiration for 2024.
Your bathroom is unique to you; a place where you begin and end your day. To enhance the beauty and functionality of this most essential of rooms, choosing the right sink for your bathroom is key.
In this blog post, we'll explore 8 stunning sinks for bathrooms, all available from Victoria Plum, with unique features and designs that make them the perfect addition. In each case, I’ve picked out a specific feature that works well in a given situation, which will make life easier if you’re narrowing down your choices.
So, without further ado, let’s “sink” our teeth into some truly delectable bathroom ideas.
1. Value for money
Price is, unsurprisingly, one of the first things anyone considers when choosing sinks for bathrooms. So, it makes sense that we take a look at one of the best value-for-money choices available on the market.
The Elena pedestal basin from Orchard Bathrooms offers a simple yet stylish look, complete with a high quality glazed ceramic finish for simple maintenance and exceptional durability.
No need to splash the cash with this low cost, high quality sink for modern bathrooms
At less than £55*, this beautiful bathroom sink certainly won’t break the bank, providing all the modern convenience you’d expect.
Complete your installation in style with a contemporary mixer tap and sink waste from our extensive selection.
2. Great for small spaces
For those of us looking to spruce up an ensuite or cloakroom bathroom, size is everything! With very little floorspace to play with, it’s often best to consider a wall hung basin.
Cloakrooms, in most cases, don’t require huge sinks, as you’ll only be using them to wash your hands, so you can easily opt for a compact design, like the Lugano sink from Orchard Bathrooms.
Small yet stylish, the Lugano basin will help make your cloakroom more welcoming
To keep with the space-saving theme, you should look to accessorise with a cloakroom basin mixer tap, which are simply smaller versions of some of our bestselling taps.
3. Bold and bright
If you’re looking for a little break from the norm, why not consider the Orion pink countertop basin from Mode Bathrooms?
Featuring a deep glaze that won’t fade over time, this beautiful sink is designed to make a style statement and can be combined with other pastel colours for a highly contemporary look.
Coloured basins are back! So why not “think pink” when choosing your sink?
Why not consider installing a wall mounted mixer tap for a clean, minimalist design?
4. Classic detail
For those who appreciate classic design, the Winchester 2 tap hole pedestal basin from Orchard Bathrooms is a perfect choice. The timeless look is complemented by the high-quality ceramic construction, while the design allows for a vintage chainstay plug and waste to be installed.
Intricate detail and timeless features make this sink ideal for traditional bathrooms
Despite its traditional appearance, this sink is designed for modern convenience and durability. Separate pillar taps produce an authentic experience, however—if you prefer—a single mixer tap design is also available.
5. Cool and contemporary
The premium Tate pedestal basin from Mode Bathrooms is a statement piece for those who appreciate contemporary design. Its bold, circular shape adds a designer element to any bathroom, without the need to pay designer prices.
With a curvaceous design and simple form, the Tate pedestal sink is one of our bestsellers
The high quality ceramic construction ensures easy cleaning and resistance to stains, scratches, nicks and chips. Complete your installation with a modern mixer tap and pop up waste in chrome or on-trend black.
6. Semi recessed style
For those looking to adorn their countertop, or even upcycle some old furniture, a semi recessed basin is a great sink option for bathrooms. Overhanging the edge of your countertop, semi recessed sinks make great use of space and look ultra-stylish.
At Victoria Plum, we’re delighted to stock the gorgeous S20 collection from VitrA, one of the leading designer bathroom brands in the UK and Europe.
Maximise space and bring years of expertise to your bathroom with a sink from VitrA
With creativity and innovation at the heart of its design, the S20 semi recessed basin from VitrA isn’t just stylish. Complete with the VitrA hygiene glaze, which prevents the growth of harmful bacteria by 99.9%, this sink will help keep your bathroom clean and germ-free.

7. Keep plumbing concealed
I’ve picked out one of our more designer sinks, the Foster semi pedestal basin from Mode Bathrooms which captures the very essence of contemporary style.
Create the illusion of space in your bathroom with a semi pedestal sink
Featuring thin edges, strong angular features and a gently tapering design that continues throughout the design, this semi pedestal sink is ideal for keeping floor space free, especially if you have a feature floor.
8. And now for something completely different
To quote Monty Python’s Flying Circus, if you’re looking for a truly unique sink for your bathroom, look no further than the Mackintosh silver foil countertop basin from Mode Bathrooms.
Just like clouds, this premium countertop basin has a silver lining that'll fill your heart with joy!
Made from high quality 12mm tempered glass, we wouldn’t blame you if you were to place this sink upon a pedestal. But, if that’s not your style, why not combine with one of our stunning sink shelves for a spa-like bathroom fit for any king or queen!
