10 contemporary washbasins displaying stunning volumes in hotel interiors
27 Nov 2022 Specification

No matter the project typology, washrooms or bathrooms are intimate spaces. In current times, the function of a washroom goes beyond its utility and acts as an element of the design. Given the fact that washbasins are typical to every washroom, they can alter the overall look and feel of a space.

 

In case of hotel interiors, washbasins play an important role in defining the functionality, elegance and aesthetic of the place. Whether it is a suite or a double room, the placement of the washbasin can affect the composition of the space.

 

From large to small, from recessed to counter-top, from modern to classic, washbasins are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, colours and materials in the market today. In the design of hotel interiors, washbasins need to cater to the end-users needs while having a distinct style, thus they have to be both adaptable and trendy. The following list contains a selection of 10 such sculptural washbasins enhancing hotel interiors.
