Basin Replacement & Installation
As a plumber with years of experiencing and having the chance to work with hundreds of homeowners yearly, we get asked a lot about how to choose the right type of basin that can best fit their home.
Before heading down to any sanitary ware shop, it would be good to understand the below few items before making your way down.
Take a measuring tape and measure the dimensions of the allowable space that you can fit your basin. Visualise roughly how big or small the basin needs to be to comfortably adapt to your daily lifestyle necessities.
The last thing you want is to buy a basin too big in size and unable to fit into your bathroom space.
If you’re spending quite a bit on your renovation, it would be good to know your options when buying your basin. Basin comes in both top-mounted and under-mounted. Both have their pros and cons and by understanding them, you can make a more sound decision.
Search online and have a rough understanding of the price range of various types of basins. Prices can differ from brand to shape and countries make.
By knowing a budget that you can work with, you can explore more choices when you’re visiting the sanitary ware shop.
