Choosing a type of bathroom basin can sometimes be overwhelming and confusing. In today’s blog post, we are going to discuss drop-in basins (sometimes also called Top-Mount Basins). A drop-in basin is a bathroom basin that literally drops into a basin opening on a counter. The basin has a lip that surrounds it. This basin lip rests on top of a counter, and it serves to keep the basin in position.
Drop-In basins are easy to install, they are generally a more affordable option (compared to other types of basins), they are easy to maintain, and, they look great in any bathroom!
As mentioned earlier, Drop-In basins sit on and in a counter, with most of the basin sitting below the counter, with just the rim sitting on top of, and visible above the counter. Below is a line drawing of the Atlas Sarah Drop-In Vanity Basin from Lecico:
The line drawing shows that most of the basin is invisible, resting within the counter.

Semi-Recessed Basins are a type of Drop-In Basins
Just as with all Drop-In basins, a Semi-Recessed Basin is intended to sit within a counter unit. With semi-recessed basins, part of the basin projects / hangs over the front of the unit (rather than having the entire basin fully fitted within a counter unit). Below is a picture of Lecico’s Atlas 50cm Semi-Recessed Basin, which also falls into the category of Drop-In Basins:
In the image above, you can see that part of the basin protrudes over the counter unit. The line drawing below of the Lecico Atlas 50cm Semi-Recessed Basin gives an indication of the dimensions and the form of the basin:
