Bathroom

Looking for a low bathroom bench? Here’s one to hack.





I like how Gianni modified the Malm console for his bathroom. I can’t find the link to it but it does look like the Malm occasional table, only longer. 

“I was wondering how to sort out the bathroom, especially where the basin is,” says Gianni. “Actually, I knew I wanted a bench, but I could not find any cheap ones, neither could I custom build one (far too expensive). The bench had to be large/narrow enough to fit nicely beyond the bathtub, so when I saw the Malm console and after I checked its width, I knew I was done.

 
 

So, I bought the Malm console for bedroom and I simply shortened the legs to make it a bench. Before the cut, I made sure I could fit the Kassett boxes underneath, cause they would give me extra storage space for stuff and shoes.”

    Any chance on finding out where that sink is from?

  2. Lauren says:

    I’d like to know what kind of toilet that is too!

    This looks like the over-the-bed table they use to have for in the Malm series, but discontinued (at least it’s gone here, grr!). Nice work though!

  4. Michele says:

    This is a really clever use of space – I’ve never seen a bench like that in a bathroom.

    Love it! Love it all…including the picture, which I own :) Almost wish my bathroom didn’t have the standard built-in vanity so I could try this!

    Nice job! Now can someone come up with a Ikea cat feeding station that has an opening that only a cat can fit into and not a large hunting dog that eats the cats food? I saw two fun boxes attached top to top with a “hole” cut into one of them. That is an idea.

    However, What is holding the towel at the sink? I have pedestal sinks also. That bar looks very functional.

    Looks good but is it really functional with wet floor and humidity in the bathroom?

  9. Great use of a small space.

    Really well done and good photographs!
    Me too I wonder about the humidity of the floor…..
