Ceramic Basins should come on top of your priority when selecting items to add to your bathroom. This is not an empty suggestion as there is a reason why. Unless money is not of any concern for you, the budget would become the primary factor that may put your bathroom construction project on hold for an undetermined period. A basin is a must in every bathroom so skipping it from your list would be unwise. However, basins of specific materials could be a little too pricey, putting a strain on your budgetary concern in the process. A ceramic basin, on the other hand, would not cost an arm and a leg to afford.
Ceramic Basins are indeed affordable but it does not mean they are cheap in every sense of the word. Other materials such as limestone indeed come with their innate esthetical property. But marble or travertine basins are good because they are untouched. If you choose to do something to them (like painting them or something), it would reduce their esthetic greatly. They are pretty limited in option. Ceramic, on the other hand, is pretty flexible in that they can come in a variety of color and shade, providing you with a wider range of option while still within your budget range.
Ceramic Basins are also sturdy and scratch-resistant. Other materials require delicate treatment and maintenance so as to avoid scratching. Ceramic can withstand both scratches and shocks. Tiny scratches would develop into cracks over time, which may lead to a buildup of dirt, which in turn would become a suitable site for bacteria to grow. With virtually no chance of scratching, a ceramic basin would not be the source of problems for you so long as you manage to maintain and clean it on regular basis with precise and correct due-care.
