Wall hung basin unit buying guide

Posted by Adam Chard in Buying guides | 8 years ago 2 min read

Wall hung basin units can give a beautifully modern look to a bathroom. They provide a contemporary mix of style and functional storage, with a basin built into the top.

With their compact design, wall hung basin units are perfect for smaller bathrooms and cloakrooms, and the storage they provide will keep your bathroom neat, and free from clutter. Unlike a floor standing vanity unit, wall hung basin units also help to create a feeling of space and lightness by keeping your floor area clear.

Whilst wall hung bathroom furniture is very popular in continental Europe, it is certainly starting to make inroads into British bathrooms. Let's take a look at just some of the different styles on offer.

Styles available

There a lots of finishes and styles to choose from in our range of wall hung basin units, with different details to suit any bathroom.

If you want to create a very contemporary and eye-catching element, you could choose a plain wall hung unit with a flat top and then fit your choice of counter top basin. However, this type of mix and match style isn't for everyone.

Our Planet range of units comes in an eye catching high-gloss white finish, perfect for creating a contemporary feel. You can also customise your unit by choosing a coloured insert, adding a subtle but bold splash of colour to your bathroom. The Planet Select wall hung basin units have two soft close drawers, a resin basin on top and come in a range of sizes.

Our Drift sawn oak unit has a beautiful and quite traditional finish, with the sharp lines and chrome handles of the unit giving it a contemporary edge.

Alternatively, you could choose something that is more simple and practical, such as our Smart white unit with its high-gloss finish and clean, simple look.

What to think about when fitting a wall hung basin unit

Check the height, depth and width of the unit carefully before purchasing. It’s a good idea to make a floor plan of your space to ensure your chosen unit will fit, bearing in mind that you will need room to open the drawers or cupboard doors, as well as enough space to be able to use the basin comfortably.

Wall hung units need to be attached to a strong, load bearing wall, so consider carefully when choosing where to place your basin. They can be fixed to a stud or a panelled wall, but you’ll need to install some framework to support its weight. Always ask a professional fitter for advice if you’re not sure.
