Q. What things should I consider when choosing a basin vanity unit?
A. There are a few things to take into consideration when choosing a basin vanity unit. The first thing to think about is how much space you have available. There's nothing worse than finding the perfect unit only to find it won't fit in your bathroom! The second thing to consider is the style and design you want to go for, for example floor standing, wall hung, traditional etc. The final thing to think about is budget. You need to decide on this before you start looking at the section you have narrowed down. Some brands and styles will be more expensive than others, and it's always worth remembering that most basin vanity units won't actually come with the basin.
Q. What other items might I need to go with my basin vanity unit?
A. The majority of basin vanity units will not come with the basin. this might sound strange but it is for a couple of reasons; you will often find that there is more than one basin suitable for use with the vanity unit, they may be different styles and different prices, but this then allows you to choose your basin. Many manufacturers like to sell the parts separately in case a customer was to only require one part, for example if a basin or unit has become damaged and only one or the other is required, and some customers like to shop around and will often buy the unit from one company and the basin from another, so the options are there for everyone. If you do require the basin then just make sure that you add one of the recommended products in the product options to your basket, along with the actual unit. The tap or taps will also not come included so will need to be purchased in addition, and wastes and traps will also be additional products. But don't worry, within the adverts for our products we do have the product options drop down, which also appears as a pop up when you add the main item to your basket, making it easy for you to see all of the additional products that you would be required, and a button for you to add these to your basket.
