Advice and Inspiration for Small Basins for Small Spaces

Measure and Plan

With clever planning you might not need to have the smallest basin available. Our first advice is to measure the space (and measure again!). You may find an online bathroom planner or sometimes easier, draw the floor plan out and use cuts out to arrange the space to maximise the space.

Narrow Wall Hung Bathroom Basins - Back to Front

The narrowest wall hung bathroom basins will have the tap on the side. Basins can be supplied with taps on the left or right hand side as you look at the basin. 

Points to consider.  

  • Would a left or right hand tap works best for your bathroom, cloakroom or ensuite? 
  • Is there space on the side opposite the tap for soap? If the basin is wall hung with no other storage space, then this could be a great advantage.
  • Could a basin with narrow edges but with the bowl protruding out further work for your room?  
  • Wall Hung Basins with Wall Taps combination will give another narrow option.

Here are a few examples:

Narrow Counter Mounted Bathroom Basins - Back to Front

The Narrowest Counter or Shelf Mounted Basins could be freestanding with a tap at the side or with wall hung taps to make them the narrowest possible. 

Points to consider.  

  • Would a left or right hand tap works best for your bathroom, cloakroom or ensuite? 
  • If the basin was going on a shelf or narrow cabinet it would give additional storage. A towel rail could be added under the shelf.  A cabinet would give hidden away storage and also enclose the plumbing.
  • Wall Taps could be used to free up space on the shelf or cabinet.

Narrow Bathroom Basins - Left to Right

The other measurement to consider when searching and considering your basin is the left to right size. It may be that you have an alcove or space where you want to place your basin and it needs to be narrow width left to right.

This is the overall smallest basin we stock at just 360mm x 235mm. The slimline Taranto basin is available wall hung or countermounted with left or right handed tap options.

Smallest Corner Basins

A corner basin will make us of often empty space and as it tucked away it can be a great choice for the smallest of rooms. Some basins are all basin but on occasion its possible to have some counter storage space too.
