Speaking of basins, expand upwards by perching them on top of, rather than sinking into, your vanity. Make it a feature point by opting for a splash of colour like baby blue or terracotta, or introduce metallic sheens.
You can even go all out with the terrazzo look, matching the basin and benchtop in that finish. Or stick to a classic, curved white bowl paired with a brass tap. Consider placing it in front of a window and flood your space with natural light.
Circle, square or rectangle, the choice is yours. Sitting pretty up top also makes a basin easier to replace if and when you want a refresh.
