Contemporary basins for a super stylish bathroom

Want a modern bathroom look? For a seriously cool suite, you’ll need a contemporary basin. Often not thought of as a bathroom focal point, but a sculptural or architectural basin design could provide just that. I’ve seen some amazing lit floorstanding designs lately and some look like works of art in their own right. When it comes to contemporary basins, it’s all about those sleek lines, a simple colour palettte and nothing too fussy. Let the well-thought-out pared-back design do all the talking.

Choose a simple pared-back basin and match with an architectural tap for an effortless cool style. Here’s Jill’s pick of the best contemporary basins out there – enjoy!
