What is a cloakroom wash basin and why is it called that?
A cloakroom wash basin is a small sink specifically designed for smaller spaces, such as a cloakroom or a small bathroom. It is called a cloakroom wash basin because it is often found in cloakrooms, which are small rooms where guests can freshen up or store their coats and belongings.
Cloakroom basins need to accommodate for smaller sized bathrooms, so it’s important they’re sized accordingly. Our range of cloakroom basins are made to fit in the corner of a smaller bathroom or ensuite, so naturally, they tend to have smaller dimensions and a natural curvature.
Traditional Cloakroom Basin
However, even though they are some basic similarities they’re still various differences. For example a Heritage Pedestal Sink will almost certainly have a traditional design, where as a Duravit Sink will often boast a modern and contemporary design.
