When we think of bathroom basins, we often imagine the large semi-squashed half sphere manufactured from a sleek ceramic with white porcelain finish. However, these days the humble basin can be so much more. This essential bathroom fixture is often one of the least considered elements when planning, renovating, or updating a wash space. Many individuals see their basin as a perfunctory essential that needn’t require too much thought or deliberation. The basin or bathroom sink however is one of the most heavily utilised items within a wash space, and for this reason deserves a thoughtful and considered approach. Not only does the basin offer a neat place to clean one’s hand, it is often the central element of a bathroom acting as a statement, and focal point for the room. 

Today on homify we are taking a look at some vivacious vanities, and bold basins. For some stylish sink inspiration, check out the following examples below, and plan your bathroom makeover with style and bravura.

1. Long and lean

1. Long and lean

This long, lean, and truly spectacular bathroom basin brilliantly evokes a sense of spaciousness, as well as drawing one’s eye towards the feature wall at the end of the room. The textured wall is softly illuminated and this contrasts beautifully against the chic and sleek style of the white ceramic vanity.

For something a little individual, and full of zest, take a look at this bright orange basin with yellow joinery. Reflected in the mirror we can see wall adornment in the shape of Lego pieces, while the basin and vanity itself appears to follow the same Lego-esque form. Choose this style of bathroom basin if you want something individual, unique and highly original.

4. The ‘all-in-one’ stone basin

4. The ‘all-in-one’ stone basin

Reminiscent of a luxury rainforest retreat, this stone basin is trough-like in its appearance, yet functions as a stylish and individual fixture. Moulded into the surrounding stone wall tiling, the basin is seamlessly linked between two wall mounted lights, and offers a strong linear architectural element, perfectly placed to stare out into the serene and tranquil setting beyond.

5. Natural and neutral

This sink and vanity are constructed of a light timber with bowl-shaped ceramic basin. Natural elements bring warmth and enjoyment into areas that can often feel stark and uninviting. By incorporating natural materials into this space, the once stark and crisp space is made to feel welcoming and cordial.

Working again with timber, this basin and vanity are highly unique in their modular yet comfortable form. The white basin injects a cleanliness and purity into the room and is paired with a white set of drawers below. The timber bench is solid and robust, infusing a sturdiness into the space, whilst coordinating with the botanical themed feature wall adjacent.

The final basin on our list today is an extremely interesting and engaging design. Replete with a huge piece of black stone, this sink is colossal in both its size and appeal. Alluringly sophisticated, the sink is free from a vanity, but has a space for hanging towels below, as well as twin cupboards, hiding behind the wall mirrors.
