Hugely versatile, wall hung bathroom sinks / basins are available in almost any size and design, whether modern, traditional, or cutting edge. They can give the feeling of space and make cleaning easier, whilst offering the opportunity to add wall hung furniture for extra storage.
A buyer’s guide to Wall Hung Basins
Wall hung or wall mounted sinks are hung on the wall rather than set on a pedestal. Before choosing a wallmount sink consider that the wall it will be fixed to is solid as it will need to be strong enough to support the weight. If you have stud walls, an experienced installer will be able to create a support to bolt the basin onto. The correct fixings are usually supplied with the basin.
What about taps and storage?
Wall hung basins come in a variety of styles, sizes and shapes including the option to have taps surface mounted, in which case the sink will have holes for the plumbing integrated into the design, or, if you prefer wall mounted taps choose a sink without tap holes, the pipework for the taps is then set into the wall before tiling. Because a wall hung sink does not rest on a pedestal it is possible to fit a furniture unit underneath to provide useful storage for toiletries.
What are the benefits of wall hung?
Wallmount sinks add a sleek, contemporary finish to the bathroom with the waste neatly concealed in a bottle trap. They also help create a sense of space in a smaller bathroom or cloakroom and they are easy to clean around. Another advantage is that a wall hung sink can be fitted at your required height – useful if you are a wheelchair user or the basin is primarily for small children. And if space allows, why not consider twin wall hung basins which create an attractive symmetry in the bathroom and help relieve the morning crush.
