Double basin vanity units for your bathroom – who wants to share anyway?

Hands up if sharing a bathroom with a partner can get tricky at times… If you’re renovating your space, you’ve probably already debated on many design decisions – maybe one wants to have a freestanding bath, the other wants a walk-in shower, there’s not enough storage space, and so on.  

It’s definitely all about compromise and finding clever, multi-functional solutions to keep everyone happy. But when it comes to vanity units, there are no compromised to be made. Why? Enter: double basin vanity units.
