Different types of Washbasins

The bathroom basin is something we come into close contact with several times a day, so it not only needs to look great but also should suit your lifestyle and bathroom use. Multiple basins are perfect for busy families who use the bathroom at the same time.

1) Wall hung basins

Wall hung basins are fixed directly onto the wall with brackets, creating a minimalist and spacious look. Many basins come with full pedestal and semi pedestal to cover the unsightly pipework.

a) Full pedestal wall hung basins

This is the classic basin that most people would think of when they imagine a bathroom. While it appears that the basin is supported entirely by the pedestal, it’s actually mounted on the wall.

If you are really short of space it is worthwhile considering a wall hung basin.

Various sizes from 16” to 30 “ are available –

Price- ranging from Rs. 2700 – Rs. 7000

b) Half pedestal wall hung basins

The semi pedestal basin is completely wall mounted, as the name suggests, is only half the size of a full pedestal & only there to cover the pipework under the basin. These basins save space by eliminating the standard pedestal design and creating more floor space underneath, allowing you to use the underneath for storage or just to remain clear and create the illusion of more room. Half pedestal wall hung basins are designed to give you maximum functional utility.

The only drawback of wall hung basins would be, you cannot mount it to the wall if there is any room beneath the basin. You can go for another style of basins mentioned below if that's the case.
