Chichester Countertop Washstand, Right

Change colour

A closer look at Chichester

This washstand was designed for the smallest of spaces, for tiny bathrooms and downstairs loos. But despite its neat size, it’s still practical, with a small-but-useable basin and a countertop design that leaves room for hidden-away shelving beneath. It’s also made from natural timbers in our classic, understated Chichester style.

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, it’s a classic bowl shape that’s designed to fit on this petite washstand and leave room on top for a tap, but that’s still large enough for hand-washing and face-cleansing.

What about taps?

We haven’t included a tap 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

You’ll find an adjustable shelf inside the cupboard. This rests on our zigzag shelf supports – a design that’s both attractive to look at (made from tulipwood and painted in the same colour as the interior) and strong. They also make the shelf easy to move.

Design detail

This washstand is full of little details (on the door front 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 basin.

We take our delivery service seriously. Neptune transport, Neptune people, Neptune service.

Our white glove service means you’ll have a two-man delivery team. That means no heavy lifting on your part is needed. They’ll take it to your desired spot, assemble it for you and take away the packaging for recycling.

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with 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, free of charge.

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 to your address for collection.
