A Timber and Rattan Floor Standing Vanity Shines in this Tranquil Ensuite

Let your vanity be the feature that takes your bathroom design to the next level. 

While wall-hung vanities remain extremely popular for their streamlined look and practicality, floor-standing vanities in materials like timber and rattan (vanities with legs, also known as free-standing vanities) are being reinvented as a stylish and unique option for those after a more classic look with a contemporary twist. 

For this ensuite renovation in Sydney, we designed this floor-standing vanity in Tasmanian oak timber with rattan door inserts, specifically to add the charm of traditional furniture into the mix. While the vanity has the feel of a classic piece of heritage furniture, by keeping the design simple with clean lines and natural materials, it also has a light, contemporary freshness to it.

The rattan door inserts add texture and a nod to coastal style, and the simple, white sit-on-top basin gives the vanity a perfect balance between a timeless and modern aesthetic for this calm and cool ensuite.

Neutral Tones
For the floor and wall, we brought in large format terrazzo-look tiles to add a natural, earthy feel to the ensuite. The neutral tones in these tiles bring just the right amount of warmth to the space, complementing both the sage green feature tiles and the beautiful brushed brass tapware

A pair of our streamlined vertical heated towel rails mirror the vertical lines of the V Groove wall and add some sophistication. They are also an extremely practical choice for everyday living, drying towels quickly while not taking up too much wall space. 

The free standing bath was chosen to add a sense of luxury, its clean lines contrasting beautifully with the textured tiles.

Functionality and storage were key to the design of this Tasmanian Oak timber vanity, while not compromising on the classic aesthetic.  standing vanity free standing vanities vanity with l

While still offering all the benefits of a wall-mounted cabinet such as sightline of the floor space underneath for the illusion of spaciousness, and of course very easy cleaning access, a floor standing vanity might be the perfect addition to your ensuite.

The details can make all the difference 
This stunning arched mirror cabinet with brushed brass trim was cleverly recessed into the wall to provide a generous amount of storage space. Recessed mirror cabinets are placed into the wall cavity so that the mirrored doors sit almost flush with the wall, avoiding the cabinet overhanging the sink and giving the space a very streamlined, yet glamorous look. 

With our elegant spout and mixer tap in brushed brass adding a golden glimmer, they also tie in perfectly with the arched mirror, shower rail and vertical towel rails to pull the whole ensuite design together.

We love how the mix of colours and finishes achieve that wonderful balance between simplicity and interest, traditional and freshness for this tranquil ensuite.
