Wall hung basin buying guide

Posted by Adam Chard in Buying guides | 7 years ago 2 min read

When it comes to creating a contemporary bathroom, a wall hung basin can be the perfect choice for achieving that sleek, minimalist look.

If you’re thinking about a new basin for your bathroom, this guide will give you an overview of wall hung basins at, and what you should consider when choosing one.

What is a wall hung basin?

A wall hung basin, as the name suggests, is fixed to the wall and doesn’t feature any form of pedestal. This means the pipework under the sink is exposed. It is then usually chromed to look more aesthetically pleasing.

Wall hung basins are usually more contemporary in style, creating an uncluttered, minimalist look that’s ideal for making the most of space in a cloakroom or ensuite, but also looks fantastic in a larger bathroom.

Is a wall hung basin right for my bathroom?

Wall hung basins can suit a wide variety of bathroom designs, but are particularly well-suited to ensuites and cloakrooms thanks to their space-efficient design. Keeping the floor space underneath clear creates a lighter, less cluttered feeling. It also makes for easier cleaning, as there are no awkward nooks to negotiate.


For an angular and functional look, there’s the range of Verso basins, with larger sizes to complement a more spacious bathroom.

There are options for larger bathrooms too, such as the Brooklyn wall hung basin, which offers a clean, round shape and a single tap hole.

As with any bathroom fitting, it’s always best to measure the space you have available to make it easier to narrow down your choices.
