A washbasin, also known as a sink or hand basin, is a bowl-shaped plumbing fixture used for washing hands, face, and other small items. It typically consists of a bowl-shaped basin, a drain, and a faucet for supplying water. Washbasins are commonly found in bathrooms, kitchens, and utility rooms. They come in various styles, materials, and sizes to suit different needs and design preferences.
In bathrooms, washbasins are often installed on countertops or vanity units, providing a convenient place for personal hygiene activities. In kitchens, washbasins are used for washing dishes, vegetables, and other kitchen utensils.
Washbasins can be made from different materials such as ceramic, porcelain, stainless steel, glass, or composite materials. They can have various shapes, including round, oval, square, or rectangular, and may come with or without overflow drains.
