Your Guide To Cloakroom Basins

An Introduction To Cloakroom Basins

Cloakroom Basins are an excellent addition to any home that can help improve your quality of life and are an affordable way to add value to your home by increasing your home’s basin count. However, knowing which cloakroom basins you install can be a complex issue. So, let’s break down everything you need to know about cloakroom basins and how you can use a small cloakroom sink to improve your home.


Compact Cloakroom Basins

First of all, cloakroom basins are extremely compact so that they can fit into any space, even a small cloakroom much like the name suggests. Our smallest space saver sink is a 300 x 215mm cloakroom basin and our largest is a 495 x 380mm cloakroom basin. These space saver basins utilize their size to fit into any room you need.

There is a multitude of great reasons to invest in a compact cloakroom basin, from being able to fit one in a tiny room, to being able to fit numerous basins in the same space. This specific benefit is perfect for commercial and public spaces, as it means you can easily meet governmental quotas while saving money and space.


Wall Hung Cloakroom Basins

Wall hung cloakroom basins save you even more space by being wall mounted. This extra space saved does you a wonderful favour by giving you more room to maneuver in your space, which is a massive boon in the small, confined cloakroom.

As well as saving you space to maneuver, the wall hung cloakroom basin leaves you plenty of room underneath for extra storage. Again, in a room defined by its lack of space, any room saved that can subsequently give you the opportunity for more utility, is a great feature.


Counter Top Cloakroom Basins

Counter Top Cloakroom Basin

Counter top cloakroom basins suit cloakrooms brilliantly, as they can be fitted to your already existing counter tops, and because of being attached to said counter tops, have a terrific amount of extra space for storage. This is a much desired luxury for cloakrooms where there is often not much usable space, making counter top basins a great idea.

Being on a counter, also allows the cloakroom basin to engage in different designs, such as an oval shaped body, as it isn’t restricted by being attached to the wall.


Rectangular Cloakroom Basins

Rectangular cloakroom basins are ideal for your cloakroom, as they can be easily attached to any wall. The flat surface of the rectangular basin body is what makes this both possible and convenient, and by being able to attach the basin to any wall, you can save a lot of space which is very important.


Oval Cloakroom Basins

Oval Cloakroom Basin

Oval cloakroom basins are typically less ideal than rectangular cloakroom basins as they can’t be attached to the wall. However, they make for perfect cloakroom counter top basins, as the counter top nullifies the need to attach the basin to the wall. As well as this, Durovin Bathrooms provides unique basins that have a rectangular body and an oval bowl, so you can have the large, beautiful vessel of an oval basin, but the practicality and ease of use of a rectangular basin. This makes oval cloakroom basins not only viable, but great options for your cloakroom


Stone Resin Cloakroom Basins

Stone Resin Cloakroom Basin

Stone resin is an extremely durable and damage resistant basin material, which is a great option for cloakroom basins. This is because cloakrooms are inherently smaller bathrooms and you are more likely to have less space to maneuver in them. Ensuring your bathroom is equipped with furniture and fixtures that are hardy and unlikely to be broken by you bumping into them while navigating a small cloakroom is vital.


Ceramic Cloakroom Basins

Ceramic Cloakroom Basins

Similar to stone resin cloakroom basins, ceramic cloakroom basins are sturdy and resistant to scratches and damage. The main difference is that ceramic cloakroom basins are lighter and cheaper but don’t last as long as stone resin cloakroom basins. The best material for your and your cloakroom basin is wholly dependent on your budget and requirements, so do your research before committing either way.


Left Tap Hole Cloakroom Basins & Right Tap Hole Cloakroom Basins

Left Tap Hole Cloakroom Basin

Durovin Bathrooms offers special cloakroom basins with fixed basin holes on either the left or right side of the basin. These basins are ideal for cloakrooms, as they have been designed with a specific positioning in mind and therefore have been streamlined in a way a typical basin can’t be, which saves space through the use of extremely efficient design.


Cloakroom Basin Prices

Our cloakroom basins are extremely affordable, which our most expensive only being #67.92 and our cheapest cloakroom basin is a very affordable #41.14. This affordable pricing is part of what makes cloakroom basins so great, as it means you can renovate your bathroom cheaply and can install multiple cloakroom basins for the price of a singular regular basin.


Cloakroom Basin Shelves & Vanity Units

Basin shelves and basin vanity units are great additions to cloakroom basins that provide you with extra storage while not taking up much extra room. This is especially true for cloakroom basin vanity units that only take up space underneath the basin. Basin vanity units are made from wood and come in a variety of colours, ranging from bright light colours to deep, dark colours. Thanks to this, you can embrace any aesthetic you wish, while adding extra storage to your bathroom.
