Sometimes it can be difficult to visualise exactly what you want particularly when it comes to vanities.
This is where Kithe can come in. We have a wealth of experience in hand making unique vanities to suit every bathroom and all tastes. We use our expertise to craft truly unique pieces from a variety of materials, but we’re also happy to offer our expertise post-sale; we can help you to keep your brand new vanity in the best condition possible going forward.
Oil-based varnishes are the best kind and are what we recommend in the majority of cases; always apply a minimum of two proper coats to ensure you have adequate coverage. We recommend that you avoid water-based finishes as, in our experience, they tend to peel or crack when in moist environments like a bathroom.
Many suppliers will over-egg the pudding on this one; they’ll tell you that you should re-varnish every couple of years, but this isn’t strictly necessary. Yes it won’t hurt, but really you should only re-varnish if you notice any wearing or visible scratches; in reality, a good coat of varnish could last for a decade if you really take care of your vanity.
We can help you to choose the best materials for your needs, but as a rule of thumb, you need hard-wearing timber of good quality that can cope with moisture. Some good examples are Spotted Gum, Victorian Ash and Blackbutt.
Let us say first of all that we are absolutely confident in the quality, craftsmanship and durability of our unique vanities. But for those of you who require that little bit of extra peace of mind, we offer a five-year warranty with all of our vanities; can’t say fairer than that can we?
