What is the Scanalato vanity unit?

With the Scanalato Vanity Unit range from 34 St John, we aimed to create a unit that genuinely combines the ultimate in practicality with luxurious style. Each Scanalato unit is available in solid wood or walnut, providing durability and a natural look that works seamlessly with any colour.

The units offer a choice between a BeyondStone™ countertop, known for its resilience and gorgeous surface, or an integrated basin option, allowing you to select the perfect fit for your needs. We’ll go into more detail about the benefits of BeyondStone™ below.

Another unique feature of the Scanalato units is the textured reed fluted front, a trendy modern visual touch that can instantly make any bathroom feel elegant and sophisticated. Maintenance is simple, meaning that the units stay looking good with minimal effort.

Ultimately, the Scanalato Vanity Units are a great choice for stunning bathroom aesthetics and functionality, offering the highest quality materials and thoughtful design.

Why is it so popular?

The Scanalato Vanity Unit is one of our most popular products and there are a few reasons why. Here are some of our customer’s favourite aspects of this special vanity unit:

Customisation Options

The Scanalato Vanity Unit offers a range of customisation options, allowing you to personalise your bathroom space and create an interior that reflects your personality and unique taste. With 19 unique colours to choose from, plus a Walnut option, there is a shade to match any design preference. Additionally, for those seeking a more personalised touch, we offer bespoke colour options.

Customers can select bespoke colours from well-known paint brands such as Farrow & Ball, RAL, Lick, Crown, Dulux, and Benjamin Moore. If the shade you would like is not within the standard selection, the bespoke option allows for virtually any colour to be matched and used.

The process for selecting a bespoke colour is easy. You can submit your colour choice through the enquiry form on the 34 St John website or order directly online using our interactive colour picker. Our team then orders a sample pot of the selected paint, creates a physical sample panel, and ensures the colour matches precisely. This panel is used to develop a paint formula in the supplier's paint kitchen, ensuring it meets the required specifications for bathroom use.

This level of customisation means that each Scanalato Vanity Unit can be tailored to perfectly complement any bathroom décor, allowing you to craft your perfect sanctuary, down to every last detail.

Design Flexibility

One of the key elements of the Scanalato Vanity Unit is the basin options; you can either choose your own countertop basin, and if the vanity unit is wide enough, you could even position two countertop basins if you desire. Or you can opt for the integrated basin option.

The clean lines and minimalist design of the basin complement the textured reed fluted front incredibly well, creating a cohesive and sophisticated aesthetic.

Whether you prefer bold, vibrant colours or subtle, muted tones, there is a Scanalato unit to suit your taste.

Additionally, the choice between solid wood or walnut materials adds another layer of customisation. These materials offer durability and bring a natural element to the bathroom, enhancing the overall design.

Quality Control

Throughout the manufacturing process, strict quality control measures are in place. The team monitors each step, from colour matching to final paint application, to ensure the bespoke vanity unit meets the exact standards that you expect. This attention to detail guarantees that each unit is not only beautiful but also built to last. All units come with a 5 year guarantee.

BeyondStone™ Countertop or Integrated Basin

The BeyondStone™material is an innovative feature of the Scanalato Vanity Unit, known for its exceptional quality and performance. Here are some of the key features: 

Material and Durability

BeyondStone™ is a high-performance material designed to withstand the rigours of daily bathroom use. It is resistant to stains and scratches, ensuring that it maintains its appearance and functionality over time. This makes it an ideal choice for a long-lasting bathroom countertop.

Aesthetic Appeal

BeyondStone™ offers a sleek and contemporary look that enhances the overall design of the Scanalato Vanity Unit. Its clean lines and smooth surface provide a modern and sophisticated appearance, fitting seamlessly into various bathroom styles.

Easy Maintenance

One of the significant advantages of BeyondStone™ is its ease of maintenance. The non-porous surface prevents the absorption of liquids, making it simple to clean and maintain. A quick wipe with a damp cloth is usually sufficient to keep it looking pristine.

How to Order

Ordering a Scanalato Vanity Unit from 34 St John is a straightforward process, and we always aim to provide our customers with a seamless and personalised experience. 

Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through the ordering process:

Step 1: Explore the Range

Start by exploring the full range of Scanalato Vanity Units. Take note of the various colour options (including bespoke colours you might like), finishes, and design options available. This will help you decide on the best fit for your bathroom.

You should also understand which size vanity unit will best fit your bathroom and storage needs. Bathroom storage is really important, so it’s wise to choose the largest vanity unit that you can fit into your space.

Step 2: Choose Your Specifications

  • Material and Finish: Decide whether you prefer a solid wood unit in a colour of your choice or walnut for your vanity unit. Consider the BeyondStone™ countertop or whether you want an integrated basin.
  • Colour: Select from the 19 unique colours available. If you have a specific shade in mind that is not part of the standard selection, you can opt for a bespoke colour.

Step 3: Bespoke Colour

Order Directly Online or Submit a Bespoke Colour Request Enquiry

Select your colour through our interactive online colour picker, or submit your choice through the enquiry form on the 34 St John website. Specify the desired colour from well-known paint brands such as Farrow & Ball, RAL, Lick, Crown, Dulux, or Benjamin Moore.

On receipt of your bespoke colour enquiry, we will email you an invoice to complete your order. Ensure that all details are correct and that you have selected all the desired options.

Step 4: Review and Confirm

Once your specifications are submitted, the 34 St John team will review your request. They will order a sample pot of the chosen colour to create a physical sample panel. This panel ensures the colour matches your selection precisely before it is applied to the vanity unit.

Step 5: Production and Quality Control

Your Scanalato Vanity Unit will go into production, where it will be crafted according to your specifications. Your bespoke colour will be applied, and the unit will undergo thorough quality control checks to ensure it meets the highest standards.
