The vast majority of bathrooms have standard built in cabinets. These are dull, tedious and not worthy of your inner creative genius, especially when there are plenty of delicious options out there.
Before you dash off to “Ye Olde Antiquites Emporium”, keep in mind whatever piece you choose will have to accommodate a washing vessel. The curvy and seductive Bowl Sinks you see in bathrooms at all those trendy restaurants tend to be 16″ to 18″ in diameter. Bitty bowls on giant cabinets are very wrong, so govern yourself accordingly.
Height is the other important factor. These sexy sinks are often about 6″ high, so unless Grandpa had overactive pituitary glands and your family has to duck under doorways, keep the vanity under 34″ high. If you have chosen an under mount sink you can, just this once, ignore my above wisdom.
A faucet is the last necessity. It can be installed behind the sink and centered, placed toward the back off to either side, or… wait for it… spring delightfully from the wall above the sink! This last option will absolutely thrill all who are permitted to enter and will gain you valuable counter space. One drawback to this method is that the mirror will now have to be mounted higher to accommodate the taps. But hey, that might work for Grandpa.
