Just as with any fashion item different fixtures and fittings in your home come in and out of style over a period of time. It is because of this that people like to change the look of their homes every couple of years or so. But when it comes to changing the look of your home it is important to know exactly what is in fashion and equally what is not in fashion. Bathrooms are more prone to fashion changes than most rooms and you may be surprised to know that the humble wash basin is as prone to fashion change as anything else. So what are the different types of wash basins that are available?
In many en suite bathrooms the trend is to have a dual sink so both occupants can use the basin at the same time. This is a nice feature and saves arguments regarding bathroom usage. Dual sinks are no more difficult to fit than a single basin but do take up more space.
Glass basins were very fashionable a few years ago but no they are not so popular. A glass basin may look very nouveau but the practicality of them is not great, they are a nightmare to clean especially if you live in an area that has high lime scale content in the water. Even if you have normal water you still have to keep on top of cleaning. For this reason their popularity is on the wane.
In most cases a standard white pedestal drop plough basin is still the hottest style you can get, the only downside to this style of basin is that many stores are reluctant to sell these to the untrained as they can be somewhat difficult to install. If you do chose this style it is advisable to consult a tradesman about installation.
