Edinburgh Double Undermount Open Washstand, Large

A closer look at Edinburgh

Exposed timber (like the oak in this double-sink washstand) is rare in a bathroom, but we love it for bringing warmth and texture to the otherwise pristine surfaces in this room. We’ve also selected cuts that will be happy in a humid space, and treated them so they’re easier to live with. This open-shelved, marble-topped design is taken from the sturdy yet elegant Edinburgh tables, so it feels like a piece of furniture rather than fitted cabinetry.

Materials: oak

We use oak because of its beautiful grain, its durability and its sense of heritage (we’ve written more on oak’s qualities here). Part of its character are its knots and variations in tone, so each piece will have its own hand-writing. And because the pieces we use are such a high grade, they’ll withstand the moisture in your bathroom. 

Finish: oak

The oak is brushed and stained to help bring out the appearance and feel of the grain. It’s then protected with IsoGuard®, an oil-based formula that doesn’t mask its natural texture (like most lacquers and sealers do) and that also makes it less likely to mark if it gets splashed – it’s still wise to wipe it down though.

Materials: marble

Carrara marble is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock. It’s grey-white in colour, and has darker veining that makes each piece unique. It’s a beautiful material, it just requires more hands-on care than other stones. Don’t worry, it doesn’t take long and you’ll find exactly what to do in our care guide.  

Finish: marble

The marble has a sleek, polished finish – a classic look that’s a contrasting texture to the almost-matte eggshell paint. We’ve sealed it to help protect against stains, and we suggest that you reapply it using our stone care kit each year. 

The basin

Edinburgh has shallower basins than most so they don’t show beneath – you’ll only see the waste pipes. They’re cleverly designed to be deep enough at the back (where the taps are) for easy hand-washing. And they’re made from ceramic, which is both durable and classic. 

What about taps?

We’ve pre-drilled the holes for the taps into the marble top – you needn’t worry about that. But we haven’t included the taps themselves so you can pick the style. The holes will fit most three-hole designs, including our Bamburgh . 

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. The bottom shelf will fit two of our medium Somerton bathroom baskets , you’ll just want to select smaller baskets or jars for the top shelf to fit around the waste pipes.

Design detail

Edinburgh’s defining feature is its legs. They were inspired by classical columns, but aren’t overly fussy. They also highlight the tonal stripes and swirls in the oak’s grain. Another element that we love are the shelves, which look just like tongue and groove panelling.
