Wash basins are very common in the decoration of bathrooms. There are many styles, heights and sizes of wash basins on the market. What kind of wash basins to choose becomes a question for people to consider. So, what are the common washbasin heights and sizes? How do you choose the height and size of the sink?

Height and size of wash hand basin
Generally, the minimum installation width of the bathroom sink should be about 550mm. There are many homes that are small in size. In order to save space, the width of the washstand will be reduced, but even the reduced width cannot be less than 300mm. In addition, 550mm needs to be reserved on both sides of the washbasin, for a total of 1100mm space.

The standard size of a bathroom sink is usually 750mm above counter basin and 850mm under counter basin. In addition, when installing a wash basin, we must also pay attention to the actual situation of family members to determine.

How to choose the height and size of the wash basin
Select based on space size
At present, wash basins on the market are roughly divided into two types: free-standing and desktop. The free-standing wash basin has a beautiful shape, a small footprint, and is relatively easy to maintain. It is more suitable for small bathrooms. However, it needs to be equipped with a mirror box or a toilet rack in order to place some washing utensils and the like. While the countertop washbasin can be used for washing utensils and the cabinet below can also store items, it needs to occupy at least a small desk space.

Depth and intensity are contrasted
Generally speaking, the depth of the wash basin is proportional to the intensity of the water flow from the faucet, that is, a deep pool can be installed with a strong water flow faucet. The bottom of the pond must also be sufficiently curved, not too flat, otherwise water will accumulate inside.

Height and width
Whether it is a free-standing basin or a countertop basin, the height of the pool or countertop from the ground must be within 80 ~ 85 cm. Too high is inconvenient to operate and too short will cause back pain. The width of the hand-washing table is generally 60 ~ 80 cm, which can be increased according to personal preference and bathroom area.
