About Stone Basin
Stone basins and sinks are among the most elegant and stylish bathroom and kitchen fittings available. They can be found in some of the world?s best and most expensive clubs, hotels, restaurants and in many famous homes.
Made from marble, granite and other stones, they can be handcrafted, frequently from a solid piece of stone or moulded from a stone composite.
Stone basins come in many shapes, colours, patterns and sizes, can be surface mounted or be of a pedestal type for fitting against a wall. They are suitable for use in bathrooms, bedrooms, WCs and kitchens.
Stone basins and sinks require no special plumbing and can usually be fitted in the same way as any other basin. They can be very heavy and it is often advisable to have a second person on hand to help with the installation.
The advantages of a stone basin are not merely cosmetic. They are extremely long lasting, are easy to clean and need little maintenance.
The range of stone basins is very wide, both in terms of price and design. Whether a modern or traditional shape is required, large or small, simple or ornate, there is a stone basin for all applications and all tastes.
Units are sometimes available with the basin built into a matching surface area. These units can be incorporated into a cabinet and are particularly useful for kitchen or bedroom applications.
When selecting a stone basin, buyers should be aware that they can be heavy and must be well supported. Accurate measurements should be taken, particularly when selecting a basin of a more exotic shape.
