Chichester Large Countertop Washstand

Change colour

A closer look at Chichester

Our Chichester countertop washstands were designed to feel more like proper furniture than purely functional pieces. They combine oak and painted timber with the same, classic details as the other pieces in our Chichester collection, they just also happen to have a basin (or two, in this instance) perched on top. That said, they’re still full of storage space that’s designed with bathrooms in mind.

Materials

Tulipwood is a strong hardwood that has a fine, almost knot-free grain, creating a smooth surface for painting. Oak, on the other hand, has a characterful grain and is full of 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, they’re 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

Inside each of the cupboards is an adjustable shelf that rests on attractive and strong zigzag supports. There are also small cubbies on the inside of each door, which makes use of this space for easy-to-reach items. Above, the soft-close drawers fit cleverly around the waste pipe of each sink to maximise storage.

Design detail

This washstand is full of little details (on the door and drawer fronts and in the skirting) that give it a subtly traditional character. There’s also a rounded edge to the worktop to echo that of the basins.

Just so you know

The colours in our paint palette shown here are a close representation of their true shades, but to see the real thing, we suggest trying our sample paint pots.

This washstand comes with Chrome hardware – including muffled magnetic door catches and Chichester knobs – to match most tap finishes.

All our basins have ‘flip-top’ (also known as swivel) plugs. But, these can be easily removed if you’d prefer a different style.

This piece is made from natural timber, which will expand (slightly) and shrink (just a little) as it responds to the humidity and temperature in your room. We’ve used joinery techniques that’ll help to counteract this, but small changes in your piece are completely natural and to be expected. Just know that, in the very unlikely event that there’s a significant change to the structure, we’ll be here to help.

Taking care

We’ve put together a series of guides on how best to take care of your Chichester washstand, so you can keep them looking as good as the day you first brought them home.

No-quibble returns

Returns should be easy, that’s why we have a ‘no quibble’ mindset.

If you decide on the day that it’s not for you then our delivery team can take it away for you there and then. But if you’d rather mull things over, you have 28 days to make up your mind. We do charge a pick-up fee of £29.95 here though, because we’ll need to send our delivery team back out.

And when it comes to designs upholstered in a made-to-order fabric or painted in a bespoke colour, there’s also a 30% returns/cancellation fee. We’d love to not have to charge a penny for this, but as they’re made just for you, we can’t always guarantee that we’ll be able to sell them again.
