Discover Your Perfect Traditional Basin

Have you been dreaming of a traditional basin for your bathroom? Keep reading to discover all the components you'll need to choose the perfect Burlington basin for your home.


What's a Basin Configuration?

Choosing the right basin for your bathroom can be difficult, so start by selecting the right basin configuration for your bathroom. Considering how your basin is set up, we offer four core basin configurations to suit every traditional basin preference. Please note that selected basins are available in certain configurations only so please read carefully. 

Washstands & Legs 

From 560mm to 1200mm in size, choose from square, rectangle and round washstands to enhance your traditional basin. Please note that Standard, Stainless Steel and Aluminium washstands are compatible with certain basins only. Regal options are also available. For an alternative look, opt for legs with Arcade basins.

For a classic floor standing design, complement your basin with a standard pedestal or create a similar look with a wall-mounted semi-pedestal without compromising on floor space. Please note that selected pedestals are only compatible with selected basins. Regal options are also available. 


Installed within a unit or countertop, semi-recessed basins have been designed to overhang surfaces to accommodate a larger traditional basin without the need for a larger unit. Uniting elegance and practicality, semi-recessed basins are perfect for small bathrooms and cloakrooms alike.


Wall mounted to maximise floor space, wall-hung basins are ideal for small bathrooms and cloakrooms. With rectangle, curved and corner styles starting at 450mm in size, selected wall-hung basins can also be paired with a washstand in Chrome or Gold to achieve a preferred traditional basin design.
