Okay, it’s harder to find a sink to fit the washstand than I thought. The top of the washstand is barely 17 inches deep. The narrowest reasonable sinks I found were 12 7/8 inches, undermounted. Then you have to include at least 2 inches for the faucet and handles.
That only leaves about maybe 1.5 inches of counterspace to be divided between the front and the back of the sink. Is that enough? I don’t want the sink looking crowded or forced into the space, and we need room to actually turn the handles.
One thing I considered was the wall-mounted faucets intended for vessel sinks. See examples here. If you had a long enough faucet (like this one), would it be possible to use a wall-mounted faucet with an undermount or drop-in sink?
