Just as with marble floor tiles, marble basins and sinks have become hugely popular in the last few years. People are utilising them as a functional addition to a bathroom or kitchen while adding a touch of style you just don’t see anywhere else.

Generally marble isn’t used for kitchen basins as a more “user friendly” material would suit better. There is a range of stone basin kitchen sinks available in Turkish travertine or limestone, with designs made to suit your needs including double or single sinks, sitting on the countertop, built-in or with a drainage board.

Once you have decided to add a marble basin to your bathroom, you have to decide on the one that’s right for you. Natural hand washes stone basins are available in simple organic shapes with a honed or polished finish, created from stunning Turkish stone. These basins bring a natural elegance to any bathroom and are both functional and affordable. White marble basins match perfectly with the Calcutta and Bianca Carrara marble floor tiles from Italy in both colour and texture.

The most eye-catching marble basins are made of granite or marble.

When planning to add a new sink to your home, do you research first, they are often more expensive than *traditional* porcelain style hand basins, but consider their addition to your bathroom as an investment as they will last for many years.

Marble hand basins convey a sense of style far better than traditional *drop-in* style hand basins as both the inside and the outside of your hand basin is visible, this allows you to choose a basin that is not only functional, it’s also a stunning addition to your room. Adding a granite or marble basin to a countertop of marble or granite adds a very classy and upscale look. You can add the basin to a countertop of a different stone or colour that highlights the sink and takes attention away from the countertop.

Hand basin colours will vary with the stone chosen from white with lines of dark grey, to white with very light grey, to reds, blues and natural stone, available round, square, oblong, with rounded corners and so much more. Marble is a long lasting natural stone that looks great not only as a wall or floor tile, but as a basin for your bathroom that adds to the look and feel of the room, and one that will become a talking point for guests.
