Small-room bath vanity/sink (16 inches)

Materials: Lillangen sink, Grundtal faucet, Besta base units

Description: The vanity is comprised of Besta units which come in different widths and heights. Their depths match the depth of the sink (16 inches) so you can configure to your own needs. I added one draw and three doors with shelves. Use any single hole faucet and use any handles or none at all. Legs are also Ikea. Use your own preference. You adjust your interior to fit plumbing and you are good to go!

    This is great! Thank you for post this. I would like to do this same configuration in my bathroom, however I’m having a hard time figuring out which BESTÅ Storage/Shelf combination you used.

    Is to the BESTÅ Shelf unit
    with the right side cut down?

    How is the left side taller than the right?

    It looks a little shorter than a “normal” counter. What’s the height?

    Could you tell us what Besta units you used? I’m having trouble figuring it out…

    One extra side panel as a spacer and the sink would fit perfectly without the overhang on the end. Nice job.

    I don’t know how Bestå takes the humidity, but this sure looks perfect!
