Bathroom Sinks


UK: Bathroom Sinks: Bathroom Sink Manufacturers & Suppliers




There are three main types of bathroom sinks or wash basins. Conventional bathroom sinks are free-standing fixtures fitted to the surface of the wall. They may have exposed pipework, or may have a vertical ceramic pedestal below the bathroom sink to conceal the vertical pipework. Secondly, there are 'back-to-wall' bathroom sinks designed to be fitted against a false wall or cabinet which conceals the pipework. The third type of bathroom sink sits on the surface of a shelf or cabinet. These elegant bathroom sinks may be made of ceramic pocelain, stainless steel, or glass. Leading UK suppliers of bathroom sinks are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
