Semi-recessed basin FAQs

What is a semi-recessed basin?

A semi-recessed basin is a style of basin that sits on top of a vanity unit but overhangs the countertop. It is essentially a cross between a fully recessed basin and a countertop basin. Here at Commercial Washrooms, we sell semi-recessed basins in a variety of designs and shapes.

How to fit a semi-recessed basin

We recommend that you hire a professional plumber to fit your semi-recessed basin to ensure that it is installed correctly. Here at Commercial Washrooms, we offer a full supply and fit service to help you with your washroom refurbishment project.

Here’s how to fit a semi-recessed basin:

  1. Mark out where your semi-recessed basin will sit on your countertop - you may be given an installation template to help you do this. 

  2. Cut into your countertop over your markings

  3. Use a varnish to coat the inside of the recess

  4. Hold your semi-recessed basin in place (so you can mark out where your fixings will go) - you’ll need to do this by:

  • Marking where your brackets will go and then place the basin to one side
  • Drill in your fixing holes
  • Fit in your wall plugs
  • Put the brackets in place and secure them with screws.
  1. Fit the basin in place, ensuring that you align these holes on the basin’s underside to the bracket holes.

  2. Fix in metal expanders to keep the basin secure.

  3. Apply silicone sealant around the basin’s edge, allowing about an hour for it to set.

  4. Install the drain and trap.

  5. Connect the water supply.

  6. Turn your water supply on and test that everything is working and there’s no leakage.

What are the advantages of a semi-recessed basin?

With so many styles of basins available, you may be unsure of which type is right for your bathroom. Here are some of the benefits of semi-recessed basins:

  • They’re space-efficient - compared to fully recessed basins, they’re a more space-efficient option as you’ll have more room on your countertop (which can be used for soap dispensers and paper towels).

  • they‘re more practical - aside from them keeping more surface space clear, a semi-recessed basin is easier to reach and use.

  • They’re stylish - a semi-recessed basin is ideal for a modern washroom as it has a more modern style.
