We are pleased to share with you our new range of sink conversions! Here you will see some examples of 'alternative' pieces of furniture which have been adapted into unique sink units. Here is the story behind them...

We regularly visit trade fairs throughout the year, returning with vans full of unique finds originating from places like the Netherlands and India. Many pieces are original, some have already been reinvented into new items from original reclaimed salvage. You will find these pieces on the top floor of our showroom here in Eastburn, Yorkshire. In this blog post we’re looking at one of our newer offerings…bespoke sink units.

Many of our customers come to us to design a bespoke fitted kitchen and utility room. We also design bespoke bedroom and bathroom furniture. A run of fitted units can work beautifuly in many spaces, and we love the addition of a free standing bespoke piece of furniture which can really set that space apart. We like to mix up new and reclaimed woods with varying finishes to introduce character and individuality into the space.

We thought to ourselves, why does a sink always have to be just another sink on just another predictable mount?

So we started looking amongst the pieces on the top floor of our showroom here at Eastburn Country Furniture. It provided plenty of inspiration for our product designer and her team of joiners to work with. A few ‘one off’ pieces were then selected, ensuring they could remain useable whenever possible while being adapted to hold pipework and waste for a surface mounted sink and tap set.

After working their magic, we now have a collection to show. Each piece here below demonstrates the possibility to transform any item of furniture into a bathroom or utility sink unit. The possibilities are endless! Incorporating differing styles of free standing pieces of furniture into your bathroom, from the classic Dutch chest of drawers to the conversion of retro stools, can make this a room worthy of considered attention no matter how small!

Using a stool is a great way to maximise your space as the whole unit takes up very little room. The sink basin sits neatly onto the seat of the stool, and we have created a small shelf which could be used for a plant, towel or spare toiletries.
