Design defying gravity

One of the coolest bathroom trends of 2020 is floating vanities. Ideal for smaller bathrooms, they can create an illusion of size and space.


Double floating vanities are a practical way to free up floor area.

Because of their clean, minimalistic look, you can update and transform your space without compromising the overall interior design.

A beach-house bathroom, for example, morphs from tired and drab into something sleek and edgy.

Patterned tiles and handsome hardware paired with a white floating vanity bring a timeless elegance, while textured finishes or grained woods make for a visually stunning statement.

Restrict the colour palette alongside floating vanities to two to three colours and cut the clutter – less is, after all, more.

From rustic to modern, floating vanities add pizazz to your bathroom and make cleaning a breeze. What’s not to love?


Bespoke Beauty

Providing a personalised service, the small team of talented craftsmen at Oakleigh Fine Furniture can bring your ideas to life by creating bespoke furniture from scratch.


Specialising in crafting custom-made solid timber furniture and joinery such as dining tables, entertainment units, floating shelves, bar units and beautiful solid timber benchtops.

The company can also design, build and install kitchens, wardrobes and washhouses.

Owner Richard Hutt has been in the industry his whole life, and set up Oakleigh Fine Furniture in New Brighton 15 years ago.

It quickly grew through word-of-mouth referrals and repeat business from many satisfied customers. Initially focused on supplying furniture for high-end retailers before branching out to sell direct to the public for the last decade, the company prides itself on the highest quality workmanship.

The team’s customer service is also exceptional, offering a home consultation service to ensure the new design fits in with the environment, décor and existing furniture.

“Whether the client knows exactly what they want, or just has an idea to start with and needs some inspiration, we work closely with them to ensure they’re thrilled with the end result,” says Richard.

“And because we are such a small team, they deal with me throughout the entire process, which provides more of a personal touch.”

Bespoke American oak furniture is a popular request and the team can also create pieces from other sources of timber and materials.

“We are very flexible in what we do – basically, anything you need, we can make it.”
