Coloured Basin: Buying Guide

On opening an interiors magazine that covers all things bathrooms you will see that there is a clear trend towards adding a coloured basin to your bathroom and making it the focal point of the bathroom design. 

There is now a lot of choice in coloured basins whether they are counter basins or undermount, pink basins, black basins or white basins, below you will find some inspiration to inspire your bathroom space. 

If you are in the process of building or renovating your home and are overwhelmed by options – you are not alone. Below you will find some inspiration for your home to help identify the ideal shape, colour and type of bathroom basins for you.


Choosing an above counter basin in colour will add a real statement to your bathroom. Whether you choose a bold colour or something more subtle, the basin will certainly be the focal point of your space.

A popular choice for built in cabinet or shelf with a minimal look, with undermount basins most bathroom spaces opt for a traditional white basin colour. However, with the Kaldewei range of porcelain enamelled steel basins in colour, a whole new world of options has become available to elevate this basin choice as well.

Traditionally, selecting a marble basin can be a high-maintenance option due to the porosity of the product and the need to seal it every so often. However, with Ceramica Globo’s innovative Le Pietre range, we now have the opportunity to offer a marble or stone look in a ceramic product. It is as hard wearing as a traditional ceramic sink, with the texture of a marble finish and the best thing – there are 13 different finish choices available including beautiful terrazzo surfaces.

‘Le Pietre’ finishes from Left: Graniglia Verde, Portoro Nero, Arabescato Chiaro, Arabescato Grigio.

Try a bold colour with Globo’s Portoro Nero basins paired with brushed gunmetal tapware.


Choice, choice, choice – this a brilliant finish as it is extremely hard wearing, durable and hygienic and opens up a vast possibility in colours. Ceramica Globo have 14 sleek matt colour finishes and Kaldewei have stunning choices within their basin offer as well.


There are many material choices for modern bathroom sinks now, with concrete and solid surface becoming more common. Our favourite material is still ceramic – its low maintenance, resistant to scratches, doesn’t fade and is extremely hygienic. This material also offers a much finer edge in recent times than previously possible due to technical improvements in modern times.

If you are looking for an ultra sleek option, Kaldewei steel enamel above counter basins are perfect due to the razor thin edges. Complete with matching enamelled waste fittings, the popular Miena range adds a style to your room that will stand the test of time. The round basin in an elegant range of colours, sits perfectly on your vanity:  grey, blue, pink, black or white  

Miena basins are also available in rectangle and square shapes in addition to the round basin pictured above.
