Recently I shared ideas for making a carved wood table-like bathroom vanity for our apartment in Chennai, India. I’ve also collected many pedestal and wall-mounted sinks on a Pinterest inspiration board. Whatever we do, the final result should be uncommon and creative.
Here’s the floorplan showing the master bathroom I’m thinking about right now:
The wall where the toilet is located will look like this (this is a photo of the store display at Vaigai Sanitation in Chennai):
Sorry for the yucky photos below – it’s hard to make gorgeous construction photos. Here are the tiles installed (before grout) in our bathroom, where the toilet will go:
Looking through the door, this is the space where the vanity and sink must fit:
After this photo was taken, the tile was installed in the shower, to the right. We will install a glass door to the shower, where the step is on the right side, so it’s not a wet bathroom. The vanity and sink will be next to the glass.
I have this rustic mirror, purchased last year from One King’s Lane. It will be going to the Chennai apartment, and may go in this bathroom above the sink:
Many of the pedestal or wall-mounted sink ideas that I like have an old, rustic or natural look. Here’s a few inspiration images …

Finally, a simple copper wall-mount sink from Copper Sinks Direct:
Mostly I like the wall-mounted faucets. But our plumbing is not designed for that. And the walls are concrete and brick, and the tile is already installed. Changing plumbing would be an enormous messy pain. So I do need a plan that doesn’t include wall-mounted faucets.
I hope this inspires you to try something very different in a bathroom!
