Ok, I’m going to ask you for your advice.
I need it now, I can’t make a decision, I want it ALL and I want it NOW!
I’m stuck, there are so many options out there to choose from and although i know the most sensible option is a wall hung vanity with storage space for the kids to chuck stuff in, I just can’t bring myself to seal the deal by choosing one of these. My last renovation was a cute little villa in Mt Eden just over 8 years ago, this style had just been released. I was excited then to be using a new modern style, but I mean, come on, that was 8 years ago, surely the bathroom industry has come up with some new modern twists on the wall hung vanity.
Drawers…..they fill me with visions of the baby birds creating a mess, dirty drawers with hair captured, dried up toothpaste, little matchbox cars and the like…somewhere where my guests will prob sneak a peek and come away horrified convinced I am a closet dirty queen. Even my skin crawls with the thought of the birds nests those children will create.
Do I indulge my minimalist tendencies and go for a basin hung from the wall? I think as I grow up (yes I think it may be happening as much as I’m starting to feel the urge to fight it) I find peace in a clean space. I know, I know, you’re thinking, what are you on about Sarah!, but I think it’s the kids clutter that fills my spaces. They invade everywhere, even my wardrobe and as much as I love them madly, I don’t want to see a naked barbie doll hanging from the door handle at 6am in the morning
As I read this I think my choice is becoming clear, no drawer but a whopping big booty mirrored cabinet and built in cupboard. Is it enough? Still thinking get over it Sarah and be practical, get a drawer!! Hmmm a drawer it will prob be unless someone gets creative and makes an alternative suggestion. Built into the wall drawers or a custom made 1500mm long vanity with 3 drawers, not too deep, shelf like, big enough for the dried toothpaste and skungy bits of hair…now your talking….
Gve me your opinion, I love others take on things and the fact we all have different taste.
So which do you prefer?
1. Wall hung with a drawer? Could go black gloss as I’m having white subway tiles on the wall behind. The blue Michel Cesar basin below is pretty funky.
2. Basins mounted on benches?
3. Wall hung basins?
