1. Above counter basins

If you want to replace the basin, you may need to replace the countertop as well. In addition, no matter how strong the glue is, the load-bearing is uncertain, and there is a risk of the basin falling.

3. Freestanding basins

The freestanding basin is supported by a column under the bathroom basin. The advantage is that it can hide the sewer pipe, which is beautiful, but it is not very practical.

The freestanding basin is a bathroom basin supported by a pillar underneath. It used to be a common type, but nowadays few people basically use this kind of bathroom basin.

There are many shortcomings of the freestanding basin. After all, it only depends on a column to bear the weight. During use, it may even be unstable that the entire bathroom basin is swaying.

However, the freestanding basin also has a unique advantage. It can hide the messy sewer pipes, and it is easy to install and takes up little space. Therefore, in general, the freestanding basin is more suitable for single apartments or small bathrooms.
