What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add a splash of personality to the bathroom with a decorative, strategically placed pendant (or three). For maximum impact and to create soft, flattering lighting around the vanity, hang a set of bulb-style pendants at eye level. Or bling things up a little with an oversized lampshade or chandelier. Tip: When selecting a light fitting for your bathroom, make sure it is sufficiently rated and compliant with Australian Standards. For bathrooms, always choose water-resistant light fittings that can withstand exposure to steam and moisture, and ensure they’re hung well away from direct contact with water.
Tip 1: Check that the plumbing services will be able to be altered to suit a floating vanity. Tip 2: When you choose your vanity (whether from a plumbing retailer or custom built by a cabinetmaker), give the plumber the specification sheets that outline the dimensions of the vanity. It’s an awful realisation to see pipes protruding beneath the vanity because they weren’t installed high enough to protrude through the back of the vanity.Browse more bathrooms with vessel basins
Marble methodsBeautifully textural, this wall of marble tiles creates a mottled backdrop to the timber vanity unit and mirror cabinetry above. Using dark grout gives the tiled bathroom wall depth and a little drama.
