    I have a very small bath, not powder room. Only have a tub w/ no shower, small sq footage (haven't measured yet), sloped, curved ceiling to rear. Looking for compact ideas like diminutive sink/vanity. (Yea, I never heard that term before either, in this way so I had to look it up). In a word: tiny.

    I have been seeing these shallow vanities around and thinking that way. Maybe a bar sink vs standard lav. Narrrow spaced faucet or single hole, maybe mounted in a corner.

    From a designing point of view, adding horizontal lines (wallpaper, wainscoting), using light colors, using similiar colors/finishes, shiny/reflective stuff , lots of light would add visual space. It has a window in it w/ nice views from the throne, but will replace this jalousie type w/ a good quality vinyl. Double hung or maybe slider in this case cause I plan to have a handheld occasion shower option in this room. Then, no horizonatal plane for water to rest on??

    I would like to stick around the original 1934 look. I'm gonna use beadboard wainscoting, probably stick w/ a cream white, resurface tub (Not DIYing that)in same, "whitewash" paint the trashed solid oak floor, maybe scrape most of paint layers off pine trim for a distressed look.

    I digress, maybe few of you have an interest in the decorating part. I should probably post this on an interior design website.

    Anyway, I tried to find some of these diminutive vanities online but no luck. Can't remember what box stores I saw them in.

    This photo (below) was in an This Old House article but no reference to manu.

    Got any other ideas/suggestions.

    Ikea has some nice, small lav units.

    The sink you have shown is the same one I just bought for my very small bathroom (approx. 24 sq. feet). I got it at Lowes for 148 dollars. It comes with the cabinet, the basin, which hangs over the front of the cabinet and a mirror.
