7. Naturally inclinedDesigned together with its architect-owners, this 5-room flat is Scandi-inspired in theme, yet decorated with travel mementoes from Southeast Asia. This is reflected in the warm wood used throughout the house – including this guest bathroom. The black powder-coated steel frames of the door, shower enclosure and vanity are echoed by the black tap and lamps, and the black grouting used with the subway tiles. Bamboo laminate was used for the vanity surfaces, and its warm finish matches the mirror’s frame.Read the Houzz Tour: Chance Encounter Results in a Happy Design Collaboration

Tap into basin optionsOne such storage idea to consider is an under-cabinet vanity unit, and there are several ways to achieve this.Many of the sanitaryware companies now sell complementary storage solutions that work with their ceramics. Flick through their catalogues or online photos and collect examples you like. Alternatively, opt for custom carpentry designed to accommodate your specific requirements. This is, of course, a decision you’ll need to firm up early on and one that may have quite a knock-on effect on the rest of your design. Once you’ve got a rough edit of your favourite photos, and if you still can’t decide, you could try counting how many schemes do and how many don’t have vanity units as a sort of visual pros and cons list, and let that shape your choice.
