Plumbing Pipe heavy duty bathroom vanity base designed to be used as a freestanding bathroom vanity base for many domestic and commercial applications. This pipe kit assembles to create a pipe framework base that will support a heavy vanity top in place of a traditional vanity cabinet. The freestanding design has been created to suit heavy duty requirement that leaves walls and floor accessible to clean. This vanity base would be perfect in a man-cave bathroom or a beach house for instance. This vanity base design would suit exposed waste P-trap piping in chrome or aged brass.
Base pipe components only supplied but the top can be timber bench, granite or man made marble type top. Pictured is a Bamboo material supplied by Bunnings Hardware. Pictured is a top for a larger bathroom at 1500mm x 600mm.
Vanity top and shelf
Due to the varied requirements and difficulty shipping, we expect that you will supply your own choice of vanity top or shelf. This can be a simply plywood or perhaps a timber top that is a little more exotic. The shelf can be left as just pipe bars or you can fashion a shelf material to suit. Perhaps use slide in baskets for towel storage. The actual height of the shelf can be adjusted when assembling to create any depth required.
Add towel rail component to give a towel rail at the end of the cabinet. One at either end if you have space. These will be made allowing for the width chosen when ordering and to match the plumbing pipe color chosen overall. These are made from half inch plumbing pipe components in galvanised, raw steel or painted flat black. Let us know if you prefer the lower straight arm version however.
Shown here at a height of 850mm at a length of 1500mm and width of 500mm but the dimensions required can be from a range selected when ordering. We limit the dimension options to ensure that your custom dimensions will be appropriate.
Plumbing Pipe heavy duty table legs DIY Kit consists of all base components required to assemble a sturdy vanity base. This vanity base kit uses our 1 inch 34mm construction fittings with Allen key screws, along with our thinner material one inch (34mm OSD) plumbing pipe. This allows for simple assembly and fine adjustment.
The pipe components can be left as galvanised or raw steel, or they can be ordered as painted flat black.
Custom vanity top dimensions
When ordering, your vanity top to make a custom size kit you can allow for a little overhang of the front and sides. The back will need to be flush with pipe work to allow water sealing of the top.
Supplied with special pipe lugged brackets to allow the top to be secured and also allows the whole unit to be secured to the wall. These lugged brackets are moveable to allow the point of fixing to be set to meet with timber framework where appropriate. Legs can be fitted with narrow flanges that could also be fixed into the floor if required. The rear flanges can be made to go very close to the wall but perhaps a gap is your preference. Let us know in “order notes” since this makes the top width different by around 15mm depending on your preference.
Close fixing can be achieved by cutting the rear flange so that pipe work is as close as possible to the wall or use spaces on the back of the lugged brackets to fix away from the wall by 20mm. We ship this kit part assembled so final assembly is a little less complex.
*Does not include timber top, vanity basin, tap or accessories.
