We have a small bathroom that can only accommodate a basin

Resolved Question:

We have a small bathroom that can only accommodate a basin that is 30cm depth max. We have found a basin that is 60cm x 25cm which would get maximum sink size for the space available. However, the sink is an 'in-line' one that comes with a unit. We don't have enough space for the full unit (as we need to allow for knee space on the toilet), is it possible to use a shelf/bracket to rest the basin on instead?

Not quite, its the 600mm x 250mm

Can we use a shelf or bracket to install it, or does it have to come with the unit?
Expert:  canuck the pro replied 1 year ago.

I see now. Allow me a minute or two to take a closer look.

Do you know if that particular model is discontinued?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Its on the current website, so it may be selling off the last of them.
When I click on the technical/data sheet its the same one as you sent (the smaller 400mm).
Expert:  canuck the pro replied 1 year ago.

Yes, it sure did. So far I have found that it will be a product that can be wall hung, just looking for the correct accessory for optimal knee space. Coming soon.

Expert:  canuck the pro replied 1 year ago.

Unfortunately that particular unit can only be placed on wall hung furniture. They really do not make the information very accessible, do they?

Expert:  canuck the pro replied 1 year ago.

I would recommend one of the sinks that can be mounted on a semi-pedestal. That would allow for the most knee room in the bath.

Expert:  canuck the pro replied 1 year ago.

I have also confirmed with my supplier that this product is not made for wall mounting. The only way to wall mount it would be to have some sort of wall mounted base custom made.

I haven't heard from you. Was the information I provided helpful?
