Countertop Basins

What is a Countertop Basin?

A countertop basin is mounted on top of a level surface (such as a worktop, vanity unit or shelf) and offer a unique alternative to the standard bathroom sink, as well as allowing for additional storage options. At Unbeatable Bathrooms, we supply a large range of countertop basin styles to suit any bathroom.

Choose from 150+ countertop basins by; popular basin widths (such as 500mm, 550mm and 600mm); basin depths (such as 400mm, 450mm and 500mm) as well as the number of tap holes. Typical modern countertop basins usually have zero tap holes - allowing you to choose either an external deck-mounted or wall-mounted tap. Although, some countertop basins still have tap hole options.

What taps can I use with a countertop basin?

Most countertop basins don't come with any tap holes, this means that you will most likely need to purchase either a deck-mounted or wall-mounted tap, depending on your preference. This allows for a much more unique bathroom design. However, there are still countertop basins that do some with one, two or more tap hole options.

Where can I install a countertop basin?

Countertop basins can be fitted or mounted to almost any level surface, such as a shelf, flat worktop or vanity unit. 

What are the different types of countertop basins?

The most common countertop type is that simply sits on top of a level surface - usually having no tap holes. There are also semi-recessed countertop basins, which (as you can guess) are slightly recessed into a vanity unit, there is also inset countertop basins which (again, as you can probably guess) are fully inset within the vanity unit.

Additionally, there are many styles of countertop basins: incorporating slim and sleek modern design elements, as well as more traditional design features with more intricate shapes and details.

How much is a countertop basin?

Countertop basins can be the cheapest basin type, as there's less material needed. At Unbeatable Bathrooms, you can buy countertop basins from just £62.
