Choosing your sanitaryware

What’s in trend today may not be true of tomorrow, which is why most sanitaryware comes in white. It’s easier to develop your colour scheme with the flooring and wall finishes, along with towels and accessories that can be changed on a whim. But there’s no doubt the style of your sanitaryware will have a big impact on the overall feel, tactile and visual, of the bathroom.  


The look/materials, and the style of fixing, will dictate the cost of your basin, which will range from less than €/£100 to €/£600 on average. 

      Basins come in different fixing styles like vanity (where the basin will sit in the unit), full pedestal (the most common where the basin is supported by a column type structure underneath), half pedestal (where the column is short and the basin is wall mounted), or countertop (where the basin sits on a counter).
