Freestanding or built-in double washbasin
The freestanding double washbasin is a real advantage to make your relaxation area aesthetic and add your personal touch.

It is nevertheless useful to specify that each freestanding basin top in Solid surface sold on Vascoplan are delivered with their fixings in order to be able to install it as easily and quickly as possible. You also have the possibility to install a solid surface shelf of the same brand and colour as your washbasin top, which will allow you to store many things.
