    I know some of these posts are old but if anyone is currently looking as I am..... We are starting renos on both our master bath and other full bath on the second floor. We are using "Falling Water" tile in "Jog"....there are 4 colorations of FW tile in differing gradations of grey/white/beige (Jog is the lighest beige). it is porcelain from Italy, and comes in 12X24 tiles, 6X36 tiles, and mats of 3 inch tiles that are 3 X 4 tiles each. I am doing the two back walls of the new frameless walkin shower with the 12X24, the mats for the shower floor and a bottom shower border, and the 6X36 for the knee wall between the shower and the toilet as well as the floor in the room. We are using the 12X24 tiles on the floor of the other full bath and cutting the mats so there is a 1 or 2 tile border all the way around the room.

    Hi, sorry for the delayed response we have been away. The sink is from the supplier ACS in Edgecliff in Sydney and is a great matt finish, it is a stone counter top Vessel 420mm x 420mm. The tapware is from the supplier RenovationD in Sydney and you can find them online. I hope that helps.

    I haven't got the details of the tile as it was purchased from a store with just their stock number on it. But there is an amazing range of timber look tiles around now with great colours and finishes. You can either Google "timber look tiles" or contact some local tile stores and they should be able to help you.

    Looks great - How thick is the timber vanity and what species?
  • PRO

    The vanity is blackbutt and is 85mm thick, we achieved that by laminating a 40mm x 85mm piece to each edge to give it that solid look. It gives a great solid timber textured look with the colour tone we wanted and it is great!

    This wall tile came through Amber tiles although since we bought these there are a lot of "timber look" tiles around in great colours so Google or call some local stores and they will tell you if they have any too. The floor tiles were from Tile Mega Mart, they specialise in good prices for bulk quantities so I don't have the tile spec. My best tip is to make sure the 2 tiles you work with have one tone that is similar in both tiles, this will ensure you have a connector and the finished effect appears seamless!

    The tiles are fantastic and really give you the natural textured feel. With the development of ranges there should be some great new products on the market now.

    Hi we used water based stain and a water based clear finish on top to seal it. It has been 1 year of constant use and cleaning and it is in as new condition still. The bench is big enough not to have water spill over and with a Capital Building project you don't ever have any other leaking spots!

    This is interesting because my designer told me recently that a wood vanity countertop was absolutely impossible even after I questioned her repeatedly. Hey, my fault for not doing my homework:) Thx for feedback

    This is a standard shaving cabinet that was inset into the wall. The mirror extends out all sides of the cabinet which gives it a much more elegant look and enables you to use the mirror as the finger pull to open the cabinet. The whole look gives that lovely recessed finish, maximises your storage and is not expensive.

    Yes the trap is exposed although you can get beautiful architectural traps now, so they still look good. The one we used had an elegant square finish as you can see in the photo and it looks great!

    When we purchased these tiles there weren't many on the market. The supplier we use was Amber Tiles. You can contact them through www.ambertiles.com.au There are so many amazing new tones available now too!

    This mirror is a recessed storage cabinet which gives lots of storage for the bathroom. Not having the mirror and box behind it protrude too far out from the wall keeps the line of the wall looking clean. Having the space between the mirrored door and the wall gives a little bit of presence to what would otherwise be a plain mirror - an easy way to create storage and style!

    The benchtop uses a couple of "L" angle brackets that we purchased from a bathroom joiner. We have even tiled over the vertical section of the bracket to ensure the look is floating and seamless!

    You will find any joiner will make these cabinets. They are a base cabinet that they all make. Going to a joiner directly will give you the opportunity to get the exact size you need built so you get the best result, and as a bonus they are not expensive!

    This sink was purchased through www.acsbathrooms.com.au You can contact them and they should be able to help you at least point you in the right direction. They are a really beauiful sink as they are a stone range so it is a matt finish and a stunning shape!

    This vanity is 495mm x 1250mm and the timber thickness is 45mm. The edge was wood glued and clamped on. We go our timber supplier to do this as they have the full press to ensure it was done properly.

    The timber itself was 45mm, the front piece was 90mm to make the whole piece look heavier. I used the Cabots stains as i wanted to use a good quality stain varnish in this bathroom although it will also depend on the starting timber colour tones and what you want it to work with. This was a mix between black and Marita Grey. Play around with the colours on a sample piece to be sure of your result ... it is worth the extra time!

    It certainly is a solid piece of timber but it is supported by 2 specially designed "L" shaped brackets that we installed prior to tiling the wall and tucked right under the bench top. The floating effect is fantastic!

    The vanity is one we had our team make up for us from recycled timber and we mixed up our own stain to suit. The vanity is a matt finish vanity from www.acsupplies.com.au/ in Sydney Australia, but if you contact them they might give you a description to search locally. If I can go skiing near your house i would bring it personally!!!!

Sam Ferris added this to A Step-by-Step Guide to Designing Your Bathroom VanityApr 13, 2016

If you don’t need storage space and are seeking a minimalist design, you can forgo cabinetry and simply install a wall-mounted countertop.

Jessica Dupuy added this to Houzz Tour: A Half-Demolished Structure Becomes a Fresh, Modern HomeSep 25, 2013

This bathroom incorporates a recycled wood vanity and wood-style wall tiles, giving the effect of bringing the mountains to the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney."Taking what would normally be a cold, slick space, we really wanted to keep that earthy textured feel but not make it too heavy," Bettina says. The counter has a water-based stain and water-based clear finish.
