The indispensable component
The washbasin in most cases represents the first visible element the moment one enters the bathroom, and it is precisely for this reason that the choice of its model and installation is among the most delicate moments of furnishing.
Lavabo inter innocentes manus meas et circumdabo altare tuum, Domine ("I will wash among the innocent my hands: and I will go round thy altar, O Lord," Psalm 26:6); the basin also takes its name from the "purification functions" during religious ceremonies, in fact the term in Latin means "I will wash."
Among the brands available are Gessi, Agape, Antonio Lupi, Zucchetti Kos, Ceramica Cielo, Flaminia, Rexa Design, Glass Design and Valdama (and many others), all of which specialize in the production of working with materials such as ceramics, Corian, Cristalplant, Tecnoril, HI-MACS, marble-resin, quartz-resin and for more particular tastes, even porcelain, marble, glass and steel.
The Thousand Aspects of the Washbasin
There are many models available on the site that can satisfy the aesthetics of the bathroom, with the possibility of being installed according to all kinds of needs and with the possibility of being manufactured from many materials.
Among the most popular are definitely the "washbasin on column" or "washbasin on semi-column," where the column in addition to providing support, also helps to give a sense of order to the bathroom by hiding the plumbing.
Of considerable importance at the aesthetic level, are also the countertop washbasins, installed on the bathroom furniture; this model represents the ultimate expression of modernity by creating a stylistic interaction through the contrast between the material of the basin and that of the surface on which it is placed;
The types are very varied and we can find them under the term "recessed on top", here we find the "above-top" versions when the washbasin is exposed on the upper part with respect to the countertop furniture, the "under-top" versions when the washbasin is placed at a lower level with respect to the countertop furniture and the "semi-recessed" version, when the washbasin has the lower part recessed on the countertop furniture and the upper part protruding upward and outward.
