Perfect for saving space, wall hung basins can make even the smallest bathroom look grand. Available in various sizes and shapes, wall mounted sinks are very popular with en-suites due to their compact size and versatility.
Wall hung basins are pretty self-explanatory, they’re essentially sinks which are mounted to a bathroom wall. They’re usually smaller in size when compared to some pedestal or inset basins and are most effectively used within a smaller bathroom setting, such as small WC.
Due to their compact size, people often assume that they are very basic in design, however; this is far from the case. There are just as many slick and trendy styles of wall hung sinks available as there is any other type. Especially when you’re browsing our range of wall mounted bathrooms sinks at Savisto Bathrooms, you will never have to sacrifice style.
Semi pedestal – As a method of concealing any necessary pipework, semi pedestal wall hung basins feature a small pedestal affixed to the basin. The half-pedestal is much more attractive to look at than a bunch of pipes and it still generates the wall hung effect.
Exposed decorative bottle trap – The bottle trap can be found directly beneath the wash basin and is an essential part of the plumbing process which helps to keep the bathroom clean and hygienic. Unfortunately, a lot of bottle traps are not very aesthetically pleasant to look at which is why they are concealed; however, some are. Some wall mounted basins feature exposed bottle traps which have been designed in pristine chrome for a more luxurious feel.
Corner-mounted basins – If space is scarce, it is always in your interest to identify ways in which to conserve it. Using corner-mounted basins can sometimes free up some space as they can be mounted in the corner of where two walls meet; a usually impractical place for furniture.
Installing wall hung basis is a relatively easy task, however, if you’re not confident in your plumbing ability, it is not recommended to take on this task as you will be required to re-connect all pipelines and check for leaks.
Mounting the wall hung basin is a simple process of marking out the measurements and then securing the basin to the wall. However, it is important that you check to make sure there is sufficient space for the sink beforehand.
Most wall mounted bathroom sinks only come with the standard one tap hole as oppose to two tap holes which means that a mono mixer tap will have to be integrated into the design in substitution of conventional hot and cold taps. There are some designs which do have two tap holes, however, most do not.
Suitable waste depended on the style and the type of wall mounted basin which is purchased. For example, a traditional, two tap (2TH) basin may look much more authentic if it was combined with a classic chain plug, whereas as a modern and contemporary design may benefit from the convenience of a pop-up waste.
