Edinburgh Undermount Washstand, Right

A closer look at Edinburgh

Exposed timber is rare in a bathroom, but we love it as a foil to the cold surfaces of stone and metal. Our Edinburgh washstand is made from oak that not only adds a great deal of texture and warmth, but is also happy in these humid spaces. We’ve kept its design clean-cut, with simple lines, a marble top and upstand, and an airy, louvered door design.

Materials: oak

We use oak because of its beautiful grain, its durability and its sense of heritage (we’ve written more on it here). The knots and variations in tone are all part of its character and are an aspect we love. 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 a shallower basin than most – the washstand’s proportions mean that regular ones would take up some of the shelf space below. It’s cleverly designed to be deep enough at the back (where the taps are) for easy hand-washing. And it’s 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

Because of the basin’s slim shape, a drawer can be fitted around it. It makes the most of this space as a home for smaller bits and bobs that might otherwise get lost, and is fitted on soft-close runners. Underneath, there’s an adjustable shelf inside each cupboard.  

Design detail

The subtle nod towards nautical design in Edinburgh’s louvered doors feels completely at home in a bathroom space, and also breaks up the weight of the oak. So that you can’t see through, the slats are fixed in place at just the right angle. Inside, you’ll find our super-strong, oak zigzag shelf supports too.
