Our tiny (literal) hole-in-the-wall bathroom got a big upgrade during 2020! This bathroom went from builder’s grade to custom thanks to some creative changes that brought a lot of style. Today let’s take a look at the update to the bathroom sink.
The old vanity was removed and replaced with an old table. The table was sanded down, stained, and received a coat of heavy-duty polyurethane on the top. We asked our contractor to secure the table to the wall because of the casters and the fact that active children use this bathroom daily.
A vessel sink was placed on top of the sink stand, which came from my partners over at Wayfair. I love how this wide rectangular vessel sink helps fill the top of this table and brings the perfect touch of modern with the smooth white finish and rectangle shape. (Tip: If you are going to order this sink make sure you get the skin drain here.)
Because of the way the plumbing was already installed in the bathroom we decided to skip installing the faucet on the wall and went with this Vessel Sink Faucet in matte black. This is the perfect height for our sink and brings in the black accents I wanted for the bathroom.
While going with a vanity table and vessel sink brings lots of style and personality you definitely sacrifice storage space. Fortunately, that isn’t a big deal in a half bathroom because you mostly need space for towels and toilet paper. We solved the storage issue in this bathroom with sturdy baskets for under the vanity table. They give us just the right amount of storage and honestly, it cuts down on the clutter that ends up in the drawers of a half bath.
Are you considering adding a vanity table with a vessel sink in your half bathroom? Here are a couple of things to think about:
- Where is the plumbing currently? Out of the floor or the wall? If it comes out of the floor you are going to run into the issue of what to do with your pipes.
- Will your order a vanity or table from somewhere? Or refinish a table? If you are refinishing make sure you do a heavy layer of polyurethane protecting the top.
- Will you be mounting a faucet on the wall or on the table? Make sure you have enough space for the sink and the faucet.
- What about storage? What do you need to store in this bathroom and where will things go?
- If you are using a table for a vanity be sure to ask your contractor to attach it to the wall so it won’t end up moving/flipping.
