Why should I choose a solid wood washstand over integrated plastic or MDF bathroom furniture? This is a question that is often asked when customers see our range. The first part of the answer is space. You have much more flexibility about how you want to use your bathroom space if you choose a washstand. A stand alone washstand can be used in every bathroom type and can help you to save space. This works especially well if you go for one of our wall-mounted versions. The second part is style. Integrated bathroom furniture is often made from poor quality, fabricated materials which don’t project the same level of class and style as solid wood. Additionally, by choosing a wooden wash stand you have the option to combine a number of different materials, themes and looks together across different cupboards and units in your bathroom. This is something you can easily change without overhauling your entire bathroom when you grow tired of the current set-up or style.
Tikamoon specialises in bathroom washstands made from solid teak. We believe that the solid teak is the perfect material because it is hard wearing. Unlike softer woods and MDF, teak is not affected by the moisture and changes in temperature that take place daily, in a bathroom. Teak is also a great material for a bathroom washstand because of its light, warm colour. A cold and dark bathroom can be a very overbearing and unattractive proposition on a winters morning when you are waking up for a day at work. It is therefore important to make sure that your bathroom promotes a light, warm and cheerful mood. In contrast to a cold plastic or glass cabinet, teak wood is warm to the touch. You will see that many of our teak wash stands have a slatted, wooden panel designs that you might find in a scandinavian sauna.
If a teak washstand is not well suited to your current décor we have some other options. Sheesham and mahogany are as durable as teak and have a slightly bolder colour. Pine and oak are also hard wearing wood and they will bring a sense of elegance and grandeur to the bathroom. By choosing a solid wood washstand for your bathroom, you are choosing to create unique space that you can carry with you through your life.
