1. What Is a Washstand? What Are the Benefits of Having One? 

A washstand, formerly known as a basin stand, is a metallic frame made of materials like aluminum, chrome, or stainless steel. It attaches to the bottom of a compatible washbasin, typically at the basin's four corners and at two (or four) points on the wall. Some models also incorporate legs for additional floor support. 

The primary benefit of a washstand is its striking metallic structure, which adds a sense of drama and grandeur to your bathroom. It not only provides robust support for the basin but also offers convenient storage space for towels. Some innovative models even feature open shelves, enhancing their functionality and style.

2. What Is the Difference Between Washstands and Vanity Units?

Washstands and vanity units share functional similarities as both offer additional storage space beneath the sink. However, the key difference lies in their design. While vanity units are fully enclosed with elaborate storage components such as shelves and drawers, washstands feature a bare metallic frame, often with a single shelf.

3. Do Washstands Come with Integrated Sinks?

Washstands always come with integrated sinks. There may be exceptions, such as a stainless steel frame model available without an integrated sink, in which case a compatible sink must be purchased separately.

4. Do Washstands Work Well in Both Modern and Traditional Bathroom Designs?

Washstands are versatile and work well in both modern and traditional bathroom designs. Traditional washstands typically include integrated traditional-style sinks and can be complemented with traditional-style taps for a timeless appearance. In contrast, contemporary washstands can achieve a modern look by incorporating the latest mixer taps, adding elegance and sophistication to the design.
