Choosing a Stone Basin

When thinking about ways to elevate your bathroom space, the addition of a stylish Stone Basin might not be the first thing that springs to mind. However, the right basin can make a real impact on the aesthetic of your bathroom. Whether you are looking for a sleek and sophisticated classic, or a bold, contemporary basin, we have a comprehensive range here at Lusso Stone.

A Guide To Stone Basins
 
Stone Resin Basins beautifully complement our freestanding stone baths and likewise involve similar aftercare and construction techniques. Stone basins are popular amongst grand five star hotels and gleaming spa-like bathrooms, elevating any interior and perfectly blending with sheer luxe. Expertly crafted from composite stone to create a long lasting, durable and hard wearing surface that will last a lifetime. The natural stone is combined with superior performance resin to create this masterpiece material.
 
 
Types of Basins 
 
Choosing the correct basin for your bathroom interior may be a difficult decision. Countertop Basins are a classic design that fits perfectly with a minimal, contemporary space, but are also practical and versatile. Whereas wall hung basins are typically crafted in a rectangular silhouette in order to sit and function correctly, though they offer a deep, large space with single or double silhouettes. We also offer a selection of Freestanding Basins that can beautifully take place as the focal point of any luxury bathroom. Although the cylinder shape takes up more space, it’s a completely unique look. 
Countertop Basins

A countertop basin can bring a stylish edge to your bathroom. We have a beautiful range available at Lusso Stone, with a versatility that allows you to create a multitude of modern looks in your space. Even in smaller spaces, a countertop basin can be used as a statement piece in your bathroom and our collection is designed with bold shapes and styles that will bring a different flair to your space. Choosing this style also means you aren’t limited to choice, as countertop basins can be elegantly paired with a variety of vanity units and taps.

 
Wall Hung Basins

Contemporary and refined in appearance, Wall Hung Basins are sure to elevate any bathroom space. The ideal choice for smaller bathrooms, such as an en-suite, downstairs toilet or cloakroom, wall hung basins can be excellent space-savers. Or, make a statement with a stunning double basin in the master suite. 

Freestanding Basins

Moving away from classic clean straight lines, Freestanding Basins offer a more cylindrical, soft silhouette. The simplistic Italian design certainly makes an impression and is beautifully versatile. Able to blend seamlessly into many bathroom aesthetics, a stunning freestanding basin will elevate the room as a striking focal piece, whether you choose a bold colour statement from our Silk Collection or the pure aesthetic of white stone.

Why choose a stone resin basin?

Not only does stone resin material add an instant luxury aesthetic, it’s superior in performance and quality. Our elegant stone basins are designed to last a lifetime, whether that be wall hung or countertop styles. We offer a wide selection for every luxury bathroom, from its shape to its finish. Stone basins display ultimate hotel luxury in your own home thanks to the immaculate surface and construction. We also offer a bespoke service if there’s a specific shape or design that fits your interior. 

Renewable and durable, our stone resin material is designed to withstand wear and tear. The basin retains heat incredibly well and does not absorb water making it more resistant to damage and stains. If scratches appear, this can easily be resolved with simple cleaning and buffing. Our luxury stone basins are crafted from the highest quality and seamlessly jointed to prevent mildew and bacteria growth. 

There are many reasons to invest in a stone resin basin, to make the decision easier for you we’ve rounded up our top points:

• The composite stone resin that is used to construct our basins is solid, durable, and tactile, designed to last a lifetime following the correct aftercare.

• Stone material exceeds other materials such as acrylic, as it has a radiant finish and is harder to scratch, damage, and discolour.

• Cleaning and caring for your stone resin basin is simple and easy to maintain yourself. There is a versatile selection of shapes and designs to choose from suited to all bathroom types.

• Stone resin is a non-porous surface, adding extra peace of mind for you and your family as it allows nothing to flow through the material, including the setting in of bacteria.

Accessories

All of our basins can be made with a matte or polished finish to tie into any bathroom design. They can be paired with our luxury stone baths and accessories to create the ultimate display of hotel luxury.

Installation Tips

  • We are not an installation company – you will need to source a fully qualified fitting company.
  • Be sure to measure your bathroom thoroughly before placing your order to ensure your product will fit. Measure twice, install once!
  • Taps are not included with our baths and basins, this allows the customer to choose their preferred style. You can peruse our immaculate range of taps on our website.
  • We recommend that you wait until your product has arrived safely before booking in your installation.

 

Cleaning and Care

 

Our smooth, strong and durable stone resin is a beautiful material for your bathroom and providing you care for it appropriately, your stone basin will last you for a lifetime. 

It’s preferable for your stone sink to be cleaned at least once a month and immediately after use to avoid stains and to maintain the smooth, gleaming surface. To prevent residue and soap scum building on the surface you should rinse and dry the basin with a clean towel. If tough stains and dirt appear, the basin will need a deeper clean with warm soapy water and normal surface cleaners. Depending on the finish of your basin - matte or polished - it is possible to remove deep scratches. A professional stone mason is required for polished basins and matte basins can easily be repaired with a sandpaper pad. 

 

Repairs

 

As stone resin is a renewable material, minor scratches and damage can be removed by following a few simple steps:

 

Use a fine-grit sanding pad (approximately 400-600 grit) to begin removing the scratch. 

Rub the scratch in a straight motion, not circular, and switch direction every so often.

Ensure the entire scratch is removed and shaped to match the surrounding area.

Clean the surface with water.

To minimise dust during this process, wet the surface and rinse periodically to clean up the residue.

Our stone basins can be used to create an appeal of luxe in an interior, and whether you choose a freestanding basin, wall hung or a countertop basin, it’s an undeniable way to elevate your space.
