Q. Why should I choose an under countertop basin?
A. Under countertop basins offer lots of choice and space. They are come in different sizes, shapes and designs, offering something for everyone.

There will be no tap hole on the actual basin.
Q. What style should I go for?
A. Style of basin such as round square or traditional will all depend on the look that you are going for. As a general rule square or angular basins offer a more contemporary feel, where as softer curved basins offer a more traditional feel. There are of course the truly traditional basins on offer as well if you are going full out for the period/bygone era style.
Q. Will I need a tap for my under countertop basin?
A. You will need something to fill your basin, whether this is a tap or filler. The decision is completely personal preference and will be based on the style and theme you want in your bathroom. If you are opting for a more traditional look a deck mounted tap or taps is probably the choice for you. If you want an ultra modern look you're probably going to be looking for some sort of filler like a wall mounted waterfall spout. If you want to add a touch of elegance to your bathroom then a freestanding basin tap would be perfect.
Q. Are under countertop basins suitable for cloakroom bathrooms?
A. Under countertop basins are a good choice for cloakroom bathrooms and smaller bathrooms, especially if you already have a unit or countertop fitted that would be suitable to have an under countertop basin installed, as it would take up no additional room of it's own.
