Zoom on the materials of the sinks

Essential elements of the bathroom, the sink and the sink create the atmosphere of the room. And each style of decoration, its type of furniture! Recessed, free-standing or suspended, oval or rectangular ... There are many differences in style! But what particularly interests us is their materials! Indeed, you will not get the same result if you choose a ceramic sink, a stone, marble or resin sink! To help you choose the ideal model for your bathroom, we offer an overview of the different possibilities…

Marble sinks & basins

While we were still sulking it a short time ago, marble has freed itself from its bling bling image and is now invited in more refined interiors! It caused a sensation among lovers of Scandinavian decoration and delighted those nostalgic for the Art Deco style. In the bathroom, he dresses the basins and sinks in different ways. It can be rough, smooth, striated, hammered ... Whatever its finish, marble ensures elegance and refinement. If you fell for the delicacy of marble, you should know that it is a heavy material and that its weight can easily reach sixty kilos! Be sure that your support (if you choose a counter top) is strong enough to accommodate it! Finally, remember that marble does not support anti-limescale products! All you have to do is pamper it…

Ceramic sinks & basins

Made from natural raw materials, it is a durable and ultra-resistant material! We like its pleasant touch and its smooth and soft appearance. Since it has the advantage of being anti-limescale and resistant to scratches and solvents, ceramic is one of the easiest materials to maintain. Style wise, ceramic adapts to many interiors. In a glossy finish, treated in white and round in shape, it elegantly adorns the basin or sink of a classic bathroom. If your room is rather modern, turn to a rectangular and black model. For a charming decor, fall for the version with floral patterns that will give an authentic and vintage look to your bathroom. And for more offbeat decorations, you can opt for asymmetrical models…

Stone sinks & basins


Do you like natural atmospheres for your bathroom? Do you dream of a decoration where the Zen spirit reigns supreme? No doubt, the stone sinks and basins are made for you! In the shape of a pebble, your basin will transform the room into a spa area. It is missing more than the hammam! A pedestal sink will provide an exotic look to your bathroom. Add some tropical plants and voila! As for the terrazzo, it will give a Mediterranean air to your decor. Anyway, nothing is more authentic than a stone basin or sink! And if the stone does not add enough character to your taste, you can always find a natural alternative with a wooden basin! In terms of maintenance, the stone is rather solid and resistant to thermal shock. To clean it, avoid abrasive cleaning products and use soapy water. It will be more than enough!

Resin sinks & basins


Resin sinks and basins have many advantages! So much so that we don't know where to start! From an aesthetic point of view, synthetic materials have the ability to bend to all shapes and sizes. Oval, square, rectangular, asymmetrical or even flat, there is something for everyone. Not to mention its incredible ability to imitate other materials (often more expensive like wood or concrete). And as if that were not enough, the lightness of the resin allows the basin to be easily suspended. This allows you to make the most of the floor space. We continue with the good news since the resin is extremely resistant to shocks and scratches. Not only is it easy to maintain, but it can also be shiny and polished if you want to give it a boost! Definitely, we find no fault ...
