Timber Vanity Units & Home Improvement Thursday

Timber Vanity Units

If you follow my Instagram account you would see a whole lot of bathrooms with wooden vanities or some sort of timber feature. On one hand I have the artistic flare of my personality go ‘ohhh’ and the practical plumber side of my brain go ‘noooo’.

Timber and water don’t mix well and when installed in a bathroom I can guarantee it will age and get water damage if it’s not looked after well.

But I can’t help but love seeing timber in a bathroom and so I’ve sourced some gorgeous timber vanities from Reece and Roger Seller to share with you if you are looking to renovate and add some natural beauty to your bathroom.

If you are on a tight budget, but love the timber vanity look, I would upcycle an old wooden vanity cupboard and install the basin on top. Just ensure the vanity is well coated and varnished to prolong it’s life in a wet area.

Here are some of my favourite timber vanities from Reece. When you see the prices you’ll understand where the couples on The Block spend their money. 😉

Talking about timber, last week Renee from Mummy Wife Me shared how her husband Dave made these fabulous wooden flower pots. Don’t they look amazing on the white fence? Dave gives a full tutorial on how to make your own pots here.

Aaron from Mayfair Plumbing shared his tips on buying a gas cook top and oven. Dad and I had our fair share of headaches when clients would purchase their own gas cook top only to find it couldn’t be converted to the gas they had hooked up to the house.

Are you a fan of timber in your home? Done any DIY projects this spring?
