For us here at Trinity Woodworking, building a custom vanity is one of the most enjoyable processes that we go through. They are relatively small pieces so together with the client we can design our little hearts away. Let’s take a look at what goes into building a custom vanity.
We start with the available space in the room and go from there. What length can we achieve without the room feeling cramped? The depth is usually around 20-24 inches, but this will depend on what sink is chosen. Clients often pick their sink and have it delivered to us and we design the vanity to accommodate the sinks.
When doing a bathroom renovation or adding a custom vanity its important that all the design elements come together. The client should look at the floor, wall and tile choice when picking a finish for their vanity. We are always happy to assist and offer suggestions. Here at Trinity the finish options are endless. Paints, stains, glazes are all available in and we will provide samples so that you will see what the finish product will look like.
LETS LOOK AT SOME RECENT VANITIES
Here is a piece we did for a customer in Pine Bush, NY. She wanted a piece with lots of traditional detail so we did a pretty heavy raised-panel and decorative fluting on either side of the center door. The jut-out in the middle is a design element that is driven by the above-mount sink that extended pass the depth of the nook that this vanity was going to sit in. This eventually got a dark Bordeaux stain.
Next up is a small custom vanity for a tiny NYC apartment. It’s got shaker-style doors and painted a deep grey. The key with this vanity and many others alike is to make the top drawer U-shaped so that it goes around the plumbing. In this way you don’t lose out on all the available space.
Next up is a very cool progress shot of a vanity that we did on Thompson St in SOHO. This gal had very limited space to work with and wanted something architectural in design and a place to hold her above-mount sink and store a basket underneath. We built this in solid Ash and did a white-wash finish.
Lastly here is a picture of a floating vanity (1 of 4) that we did for a salon in Gardiner, NY. It’s made of rough sawn Pine and stained with a diluted grey and brown combination to look weathered. These serve as the stylist stations.
