Meet the striking basin promising to bring a little luxury back into your bathroom

There is something about the minimal lines of a freestanding basin that makes any bathroom feel sleek and inherently contemporary. Able to make your bathroom feel elevated, luxurious and design-focused, the freestanding basin is usurping its more practical counterparts thanks to the unmistakable aesthetic it delivers, and nowhere have we encountered a better iteration than the Meribel, from Robertson Bathware.

Boasting a solid, rectangular shape with straight lines undisrupted by fussy details or shelving, this basin features high-quality, Italian porcelain tiles attached to glass fibre reinforced board, which results in a piece that not only looks good, but is hardwearing enough to withstand its inevitable daily use.

Whether your bathroom adheres to the classic, monochromatic palette (white tiles and white porcelain with silver or black fixtures) or embraces a more colourful, richly-detailed look, the Meribel is available in a range of finishes (from undulating marble to dark grey concrete), promising to make a bold design statement in any kind of space.

And beyond aesthetics alone, this style of basin makes the collection of benchtop detritus basically impossible, resulting in a level of necessary cleanliness and organisation that promises to put the messy bathrooms of old to shame. (Or that’s the idea, at least.)

The perfect way to change up the look of your space without committing to anything too dramatic, the Meribel Freestanding Basin is a piece that will deliver a luxurious edge to its more practical surrounds, showcasing how something so simple can make such a significant impact.
