Undermount basins make popular choices for both domestic and commercial bathrooms. As the name would suggest, these basins are installed under the counter, lending the bathroom a sophisticated look.
Undermount basins come in a wide range of colours and materials so carefully chosen and styled they will fit into any bathroom style from the modern minimalist bathroom to traditional bathroom designs.
Flush with the counter, undermount basins don’t protrude up into the space above the counter. They are aesthetically pleasing because of the smooth clear countertop. Undermount basins help to create clean lines as there is no lip above the basin.
If you’re going with the twin basin option, undermount basins offer a practical way to ensure that your counter remains uncluttered.
The undermount basin will fit under almost any countertop material like marble, stone or wood. The only requirement is that the material used must be strong and waterproof. Because undermounts are mounted with brackets, you will need a larger counter size to accommodate it and it does take up some of the cupboard space, impacting on the shelves and storage below.
Easy to Keep Clean
Cleanliness in a bathroom is of paramount importance. The undermount basin takes care of this requirement as it has sleek, easy to clean lines. There are no difficult-to-access spaces that may be found behind a free-standing basin and there is no grout or silicone between the basin and the counter.
What size undermount basin to choose
You may be tempted to give your bathroom a sense of luxury and go for the biggest undermount basin available. Bear in mind how much clear counter space you will need and don’t forget that good design encompasses a sense of balance.
Unlike top mounts and inset basins, undermount basins need additional support to ensure that the basin stays anchored to the counter so take this into consideration when choosing the size.
