Some of the imperfections that you should know about before choosing a concrete basin are the air bubbles and join lines, sometimes even the sealant has streaks.

What else do I need to consider?

When you have decided that you're going with a concrete basin as your bathroom basin, you need to consider the costs involved and finding a vanity top that suits. There are vanity units that have been built for the purpose of having an on-counter basin, which is what most concrete basins are.

If you're going for the on counter basin then in terms of tapware you need to make sure that you're choosing a hi-rise basin mixer which needs to have a spout that is able to reach above the height of the basin. The thing with on counter basins is that you need to make sure there is enough bench space in the area for things such as towel rails, soap dish or soap dispensers.
