Looking after your reclaimed wood washstand

Our Vanity Unit is made from 100% genuine reclaimed wood and is full of character and tone which compliment most contemporary bathroom colour schemes, elevating the space by adding a feeling of warmth into a room that can sometimes feel quite sterile.

Our Vanity Unit isn’t your typical washstand, so it’s important that care and attention is given to protecting and maintaining its unique finish. Below are some useful tips to help you care for your one-of-a-kind washstand.

1. Wipe away spillages as and when they happen

Our Vanity Unit is finished with a durable clear matt lacquer which helps protect the wood from spillages and stains.

However, as wood is a natural material, the micropores in the surface - lacquered or not - will absorb water if left for too long.

We recommend having a small, dry cloth at arms length to help ensure that any spillages or surface water are wiped away as soon as possible!

Also be careful not to use bleach or chemicals when cleaning as over time this will damage the lacquer.

2. Get a pro to help with fitting

When adding a basin, taps or anything else to your Vanity Unit, please ensure that this is done with care.

Our Vanity units should be securely fitted in place and we do not drill holes in the top, so a skilled professional with the right tools is the best way to ensure the installation goes smoothly.

It's also important that any holes cut into the timber are properly sealed to protect from water. A plumber will know to do this, but it's always best to check!

3. Extra protection

As mentioned, each and every Vanity Unit is finished with a matt lacquer to help protect the surface. If the previous steps are followed then our lacquer will provide more than enough protection and should last a lifetime.

However, if you are looking for a little peace of mind then an additional coat of our lacquer can applied to the surface. It's important that you only use our lacquer for this, as an alternative product may react with the finish we have already applied.

You can also top-up with a new coat of lacquer every 6 to 12 months to keep it looking fresh and new! Please contact us for more information on how to purchase our lacquer.
