It’s a trend we will see more of as bathrooms evolve to include more colour.

White basins are a safe choice and they come in a range of shapes, sizes and depths. You can’t go wrong with a white basin and it’s uniformity with other white fixtures makes it a reliable choice.

However, a unique basin colour can stand out in a neutral bathroom. They also can suit a range of metallic finishes with your chosen tapware and plug and waste.

Coloured basins can be ceramic, stone or concrete. Your stone varieties will be natural in colour.

Ceramic coloured basins will be limited in choice of colour (usually black, grey, pink, blue and green).

Concrete basins can offer a range of different colours to suit your desired basin.
