Freshen up with these 7 beautiful wash basin ideas

Posted by Nicky Kingston in Inspiration | 3 months ago 4 min read

Looking to freshen up your bathroom? Let us help fill your imagination with these 7 beautiful wash basin ideas.

One thing that has become more important than ever in recent times is regular hand washing. Bathroom wash basins, already the focal point of our daily routines, have taken on an even greater significance—which is why you may have suddenly noticed how tired and outdated yours is looking.

So, what can you do? Well, don’t just wash your hands of the whole thing (if you pardon the pun); why not replace your bathroom sink with something infinitely more stylish and easy to use? To help you “get with the flow”, we’ve come up with these 7 beautiful wash basin ideas.


1. Crown your countertop

Transform your bathroom into your very own home spa with this beautiful round-shaped countertop wash basin.

For genuine designer style, why not combine with a countertop basin unit in a contrasting colour like black, and add a contemporary high rise basin mixer, available in a range of special finishes like brushed brass and rose gold.


2. Space-saving perfection

Created with smaller bathrooms in mind, this contemporary style pedestal wash basin features slim edges for a more minimalist appearance.

The sleek pedestal helps to conceal unsightly pipework, whilst the curved shape is designed to complement the space-saving, short projection toilet from the same collection.


3. Small is beautiful

A smart little solution for compact cloakrooms or ensuites, this cleverly-designed wall hung wash basin is highly versatile and wonderfully neat.

With the option to wall mount or fit to a countertop, this modern basin, with semi recessed bowl, can be accessorised with a cloakroom basin mixer tap (smaller versions of our most popular designs).


4. Black is back

Whilst white ceramics are very popular, basins do come in a variety of different shades, with one of the most on-trend colours being black.

This gorgeous sculpted countertop basin will certainly provide you with a conversation-starter when guests come to visit. Ideal for monochrome or minimalist colour schemes, why not continue the dark bathroom trend with a black mixer tap?


5. Turn corners to your advantage

If your bathroom or cloakroom is really tiny, you can always turn to your corners to provide you with that extra bit of wall space. This stylish corner wash basin will help you do just that!

Part of the wonderfully modern Eden collection from Orchard Bathrooms, this simple yet stylish wall hung wash basin will look an absolute picture when complemented with a sparkling chrome bottle trap. Why not take advantage of our range of corner toilets and make optimum use of space?


6. Stylish from any angle

If you prefer a bathroom suite which is more angular than rounded, this ultra-modern wall hung wash basin from Orchard Bathrooms really lives up to the hype.

Featuring a stylish tapered shape that helps to hide all that messy plumbing, this wash basin is ideal for bathrooms big and small. Pair with any of the square-shaped toilets from the Wye collection for a highly contemporary look and feel to your bathroom space.


7. One tap or two?

Whilst the single basin mixer tap is becoming more popular among homeowners, many people still prefer the more traditional option of 2 separate taps and this gorgeous wall hung wash basin certainly caters to these tastes.

Orchard Wharfe 2 tap hole semi pedestal basin 550mm

For those who prefer a more timeless look without being too old-fashioned, this semi pedestal wash basin is perfect. There’s even space provided for a chainstay plug waste, a more classic form of sink plug. Of course, you can also choose a 1 tap hole option if you wish.
