Creating an attractive, stylish, and ultimately timeless bathroom is a must for any homeowner. Whether you’re planning to completely renovate your bathroom or swap out the suite to make a big impact, the basin is often overlooked when it comes to creating that real focal point. But with a little additional thought and care, your sink can be the star of your bathroom – drawing the eye and adding that perfect finishing touch.

So, how can you make your basin the true focal point of your upcoming renovation? If you really want to make a statement, these design choices might be just what you’re looking for. Read on to find out more about how your basin can make an impact like never before!

Defy gravity with Wall Hung Architectural Style

Nothing draws the eye like high-quality design, and your basin is no exception to that rule. A wall-mounted basin can be an excellent way to flex clean, architectural style, providing an eye-catching centrepiece without being overly dominating in your bathroom space. Particularly ideal for bathrooms with minimal clutter or outward storage, a wall hung basin design draws attention to the basin as a centrepiece with the added bonus of returning space to the bathroom.

Choosing an architectural, modern design can ensure your basin perfectly accentuates your existing bathroom features. In this case, it’s the structure that does all the talking – and for wall mounted basins, the overall effect is enough to make these kinds of basins the perfect focal point without detracting from other important design choices and elements. Simple yet effective: the best of both worlds.

The Basin as a Sculptural Centrepiece

Using an above counter or bench mounted basin means that the whole basin is visible from it's position which allows you to really show off stunning design. With the right lighting and subtle complimentary tapware, you can easily set the stage for an attention stealing wash area. So how do you best take advantage of using a counter top basin? We recommend the following:

Invest in Striking Colour

Colour can make a world of difference to any bathroom space, especially if you’re looking to make a dramatic contrast between plain tiles or monochromatic colour schemes. Basins can be an incredible way to introduce a little more colour into a room, with hundreds of options available for colour combinations with fixtures, fittings, and surfaces. Whether you’re a big fan of cool colours or you want to add a drop of warm tones into your space, the basin is the place to do it.

From blush pinks to matte blacks to earthy greens, your basin palette is no longer limited to just gloss white. If you prefer to keep your basin itself a neutral colour, you could introduce a little vibrancy through a surface or the tapware instead. However you opt to introduce colour, a striking basin is one that stands out – and if you’re looking to create a focal point, using colour is an excellent way to do so.

Use Unique or Interesting Shapes

As techniques develop and a focus on bathroom design becomes more standard to the everyday Australian, we're seeing a healthy demand arise for interesting shapes and forms especially when it comes to bench and wall mounted basin designs. From unique sculptural elements through to geometric architectural lines, there’s practically no limit to the shape your basin can be.

Opt for the Minimalist Approach

Sometimes, you just have to go with the classics. Minimalism may be nothing new in bathrooms, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be a highly effective way to make the right statement. From stylish and simple natural tones to the stark contrast of black and white, minimalist design can still say everything you want to in as few words as possible.

Simple, yet stunning column or pedestal basins can be excellent options for minimalist bathroom design. For a completely pared-back look, opting for a basin with a simple mixer tap and no additional features can really bring focus to your design style.
