Black Basins

If you are renovating or building you'll soon realise that there are so many options in the current market when it comes to choosing your selections.  And this now also applies to your sanitary fittings and fixtures.  White is no longer the only choice for hand basins and sinks as one trend that has become ever so popular is the use of the Black Basin.  Black Basins work well with many styles from Modern Industrial through to Classic Farmhouse.  And it's all about what you team back with your Black Basin to create the look you are after.  The extra details pay off when it comes to your final selections, so consider the tapware (style and colour), tiles, bench top, joinery and lighting in the room when putting everything together and to really make your Black Basin stand out from the rest.   Check out these bold ideas when it comes to Black Basins......

Tip: Black Basins come in a range of materials from porcelain, metal through to stone.  To pull this look off you'll need to choose the correct style of Black Basin for your space.  If keeping your look earthy, then opt for a matt or stone Black Basin and add natural timbers and stone to your room.  Otherwise if Industrial is your look then add a metal Black Basin to your room to give it that real streamlined edge.  If you are afraid of making your space too dark by using a Black Basin, then lighten up your scheme with your other selections.  Copper tapware and accessories work well as a contrast in an Industrial scheme or if everything else is white and neautral, then add back tapware and accessories to work back with your Black Basin.
