Types of Basins

 1. Vessel Basin

TONA BATHROOM VANITY - VESSEL BASIN

If we say the countertop is the sea, then the vessel basin should be the floating boat. For the installation, you only need to dig a hole on the countertop according to the sketch, then put the basin on and glue the bottom gap. The whole body is floating on the top, so the appearance of the basin can be diverse. If it's damaged, you can just take it out of the bathroom vanity and fix it, which is quite convenient for fixing and maintaining. But the shortcoming is obvious, that water and dirt can't directly be driven into the basin, which will be troublesome to clean the countertop.

  • Simple Installation
  • Convenient Maintaining
  • Countertop Cleaning Problem

 

 2. Drop-in Basin

TONA BATHROOM VANITY - DROP-IN BASIN

Some may prefer to see less basin on the top, then drop-in basin will be fine. Simple installation only requires you to drop it in and seal it. But with the edge resting on the top, the problem of countertop cleaning is still there.

  • Simple Installation
  • Countertop Cleaning Problem

 

 3. Undermount Basin

TONA BATHROOM VANITY - UNDER-MOUNTED BASIN

This design makes the whole basin under-mounted with no edge on the countertop. Now the cleaning work becomes easy, and the bathroom vanity looks concise. But this design will occupy some space of the cabinet, which will influence your storage space a little bit. As for the installation, it's quite complicated, and when it's damaged, it will be tough work to get it out for repairing.

  • Easy-Cleaning
  • Complicated Installation
  • Storage Limit

 

 4. Integrated Basin

TONA BATHROOM VANITY - INTEGRATED BASIN

This design is pretty popular. No edge, no oversized basin view, no cleaning issue. But if the integrated basin is broken someday, the whole countertop and basin should be changed. But don't worry, the cabinet can be kept. Generally speaking, if the material of the basin is good enough, then the possibility of severe basin damage is quite low, which can almost be neglected.

  • Simple Installation
  • Easy Cleaning
  • Seamless Look

 

 

 

Common Materials of Basins

 1. Artificial Stone

TONA BATHROOM VANITY - ARTIFICIAL MARBLE BASIN

Artificial stone is a material with a luxurious look but actually lower price. Most marbles can well resist scratching, cutting, heating... Durable and practical.

  • Good Looking
  • Lower Price than real stone
  • Durable

 

2. Ceramic

TONA BATHROOM VANITY - CERAMIC BASIN

I bet everyone can't be more familiar with ceramic. This is a common material used for bowls and plates, with high hardness and easy-cleaning surface. But normal ceramic can be easily scratched. The water mark may be annoying, which will make you clean it once a week.

  • Simple Maintaining
  • Water Mark Issue
  • Scratching Issue

 

3. Solid Surface

TONA BATHROOM VANITY - SOLID SURFACE BASIN

Solid surface is one of the most popular materials. This material with an elegant appearance has high hardness which can resist scratching. Solid surface basins can keep themselves dry enough to resist bacteria. The maintaining is simple, and it's yellowing proof, pretty, and durable.

  • Scratch Resistance
  • Bacteria Resistance
  • Elegant Appearance
  • Anti-yellowing
  • Easy Maintaining
