Choosing the right washbasin is essential for your bathroom's functionality and appearance. Consider the shape, material, and installation method to make the best choice.
Discover the perfect shape
When selecting the design of your bathroom sink, it's essential to consider its intended location. Will it be placed in the family bathroom where everyone preps for their day? Perhaps in the guest bathroom? Depending on the room's size, whether spacious or compact, the ideal sink design will vary.
A round sink boasts a sleek design, exuding a touch of luxury. Its spacious interior makes it especially suited for the master bathroom, where activities like facial cleansing take place.
A square sink epitomizes modern minimalism. Its sharp edges impart clean lines, lending the bathroom a serene aesthetic. Opting for a square sink seamlessly integrated into the countertop elevates the design to an elegant coherence.
The oval sink offers an ideal compromise, seamlessly blending various design elements. If you have a bathtub, aligning its shape with that of the sink can create a harmonious look.
In households with a single bathroom accommodating a large family, the morning rush can mean competing for sink space. While one person is brushing their teeth, another might be shaving, and another applying makeup. Investing in a double sink can be a game-changer in such scenarios.
For a harmonious fit in a small bathroom, a compact sink is ideal. Opting for a wall-mounted basin or one placed atop a table can be both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Plus, it provides practical storage opportunities beneath the sink.

Which Mounting Option is Best for You?
The aesthetics and functionality of your bathroom aren't only determined by the sink's shape. The type of mounting can also drastically alter the room's look and feel. You can opt for top-mounted, wall-mounted, undermount, or countertop-integrated sinks.
Setting the sink atop a counter brings a nostalgic touch, reminiscent of times when running water was a luxury. A top-mounted sink offers a bold presence, adding a sculptural flair to the space. Moreover, it allows for more efficient use of the cabinet space underneath for storage.
A wall-hung sink exudes a clean, minimalist vibe. However, it might not be the most practical choice if you're looking to maximize storage. It's an excellent fit for smaller bathrooms or spaces with alternative storage solutions.
Installed beneath the countertop, the undermount sink provides a seamless transition. The edge of the sink creates a delineating line between the basin and the counter.
Opting for an integrated sink bestows your bathroom with a sleek and unified appearance, merging the countertop and sink into one continuous form. While this design might slightly reduce cabinet storage space, it offers a harmonious aesthetic in return.
Materials for the sink
At HTH, we offer a diverse range of materials for your bathroom sink, tailored to meet your requirements and harmonize with your bathroom's style.
A porcelain sink boasts a lustrous finish and a timeless appeal, seamlessly fitting into both romantic and minimalist bathroom designs.
A Corian® sink stands out for its durability and low-maintenance nature. It's resistant to cracking, and scratches can easily be sanded away. However, do note that scratches might be more noticeable on darker Corian® compared to lighter shades.
Opting for Graphalit® ensures a sink crafted from a robust material that's resistant to chemicals and acidic substances, making it notably easy to clean. The material boasts a subtle shine due to the addition of quartz glass.
CoreStone is a solid, through-coloured composite material available in a variety of hues. It combines aesthetic appeal with durability. Additionally, sinks made from CoreStone demand little upkeep, and any scratches can be easily buffed out.
To prevent limescale buildup, we suggest wiping down your sink daily. The optimal maintenance approach will vary depending on the material of your sink.
For sinks made from Corian® or Corestone, a cleaning agent with a gentle abrasive component is recommended for cleaning both the sink and countertop.
