Chichester Countertop Open Washstand

Change colour

A closer look at Chichester

When a bathroom is in need of light and space, we’ll opt for an open washstand like Chichester. While things will be a little more on-display than in a closed piece, it still offers practical storage (especially when paired with baskets) and has the open, airy feel of a console table. Its basin sits on top, much like a jug and bowl would’ve traditionally done.

Materials

This washstand is made from tulipwood and oak: tulipwood for painting, because it has a fine grain that creates a smooth surface; and oak for the worktop, because of its characterful grain and colour variations. With a little looking after (and we’ve included a guide on that), they’ll both be happy in a bathroom.

The finish: paint

We take great care over our painted finishes and give every design what it needs to be robust. We vary the number of coats and use both hand-painted and spray-painted techniques depending on what that shade requires. We also use our low-sheen, water-based eggshell, which is perfectly suited to bathrooms.

The finish: IsoGuard®

Chichester’s worktop is protected with IsoGuard®, which makes the oak easier to live with but doesn’t mask its matte, lightly-textured surface. It’s linseed-based, an oil which does initially darken the timber, but the clever pigments in our Natural finish replenish the original, soft-toned colour.

The basin

All our bathroom basins are ceramic – it’s the material we’ve found to be the best combination of durability and looks. Here, it’s a classic bowl shape that’s designed to leave plenty of room on top for a tap and accessories, but that’s still large enough for hand-washing and face-cleansing. 

What about taps?

We haven’t included taps with this washstand, so you can pick the style that suits you most. For that reason, we also haven’t drilled tap holes into the worktop – your plumber will be able to do this for you though. The taps we’d recommend are either single lever or wall-mounted designs.

 

 

Storage

If you’re using the shelves as storage space, it’s a good idea to add a basket or two so they don’t look cluttered – our Somerton medium under console basket fits perfectly. There’s also a slim, soft-close drawer that’s designed to fit around the waste pipe and make the most of this space for smaller items.

Design detail

Chichester embodies everything we love about classic English design. This washstand is pared-back but subtly traditional, with decorative detail coming from the joinery – the tabletop which has a curved edge to match that of the basin; and the carved grooves on the shelf, legs and drawer.
