Classic bathroom basins that look great in modern spaces
Posted on 24th November 2020
There’s been an exciting shift in bathroom design in the last few years – it’s now really cool to add whatever the heck you like to your scheme*. By which I mean it’s goodbye to the trusty bathroom ‘suite’ that saw years and years (and years!) of popularity and a big hello to mix and match schemes that ooze personality.
Want to mix classic bathroom basins with a slick freestanding bath or frameless shower enclosure? Go for it. Fancy traditional style taps with a sculptural basin? Why not. How about adding colour? Yes please.
It’s all about adding your taste into your space and when it comes to creating a focal point that has a bit of wow factor, a bathroom basin is a good place to start. It’s often the thing you look at through the door (tip: try to place the loo out of sight!), so is a great starting point for a really stylish scheme.
Classic bathroom basins are also having a moment – but with a modern twist. I’m talking Shaker-style vanity units with chunky white ceramic basins; tradition pedestal designs in a trendy colour and old-faithful shapes accented with brass, copper or chrome.
(*within reason…carpet in a bathroom is STILL a no go. And so are those cramped corner shower cubicles.)
