    1. Floral finesse

    This eye-catching sink posted by boutique brassware brand The Watermark Collection shows that a sink doesn’t have to be drab. The decorative porcelain basin features a stunning blue floral print which, combined with the copper tap, gives a contemporary take on a timeless floral design.

    2. Blossoming basin

    Award-winning design house Lawson Robb also shows how to fuse metal with more delicate prints. It posted one of its Art Deco-inspired basins, with brass taps mounted on an abstract wall. The muted print provides enough interest for a background, but still lets the sink steal the show.

    3. Tile style

    Those who have a simple, granite sink can always make the most of the space around the basin, as demonstrated by Harri Radburn-Brown. She posted a photo of a grey sink surrounded by vibrant Mediterranean-style green tiles.

    4. In the pink

    Pink is a colour that’s becoming more and more popular for bathrooms — in fact, the hashtag #pinkbathrooms has already racked up more than 21,900 posts on Instagram. Berg Interior shared its own take on a tickled-pink bathroom, which features pink stone basins on a pink wooden sink, with a background of lighter pink rectangular tiles.

     

    Alternatively, @elizabeth_roberts_architecture shared her playful take on the colour, with a playful pink-hued onyx sink — paired with brass taps.

    5. Orange crush

    For those who aren’t afraid of colour, this design from @alternativebathrooms ticks all the right boxes. It’s paired Kast’s Elm basin — which features a distinguished orange pinstripe pattern — with a contrasting blue tiled splash-back. We love the colour blocking effect this creates!
