Leave that position you are in now and head straight to your bathroom. Look around for five minutes, and ask yourself, “What is missing? What can I do to change this place?”

It is okay to want to change things. Out with the old, in with the new and fresh. Once in a while, you must change certain aspects of your house. Even though it is taken for granted, the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house because it is one of the few places in the world where we can have our privacy. So, it must be kept new and clean at every point.  

So, let’s say you have made up your mind to refurbish your bathroom, and I hope you do so, where do you start from? The problem with most people is that they have an idea but are clueless on how to go through with them. Most people do not just want to walk into any store and buy “anything”, that is why they opt to keep living their lives with their bathrooms the way it is.

Here are some things you need to look out for when buying a vanity basin:

  1. Size: This is the very first thing you should look out for when buying a vanity basin. How would you feel if you bring an oversized basin into your small bathroom?  These basins come in various sizes, and since this article is to spill undiluted truth, know this: there is no rule on how large or small your vanity basin should be. Everything depends on you. But as a rule of thumb, note the size of your cabinet before buying. Most vanity cabinets come with basins, but if yours doesn’t, the size of the cabinet should be a shining light.
  2. Style: This feature determines how modern and classy or how traditional you want your basin to be. So, you must go with a vanity basin that suits your style. Modern basins come in very bright colors and are bolder with well-defined edges. The key to knowing what style you want is the overall look of the bathroom- how do you want your bathroom to be like generally? When that is clarified, your choices will trail the same path. However, you must note that the basin you want to buy must be beautiful and functional as well.
  3. Color: This feature generally determines the perception people will have when they walk into the bathroom. If you are going for a contemporary and more modern look, you would like basins with bright and adventurous colors. Note that most vanity basins are white, but you can decide to change that and make yours pop. If you are going for a more traditional look, you may likely go for dull colors. Either way is fine. The most important thing is the overall look of your bathroom, from top to bottom.

The good news is that vanity basins are available in Australia. So make sure you get one as soon as you can.
