Lillangen bathroom remodel

Materials: Lillangen, Bjorken,



In my bathroom remodel, I used the Lillangen sink base and cut a sink top from birch plywood. I also used a Lillangen wall cabinet and turned it vertically and attached it below my countertop next to my sink base.

Both cabinets got ring pulls and a coat of turquoise paint on their fronts. I also used the Bjorken medicine cabinet, hanging it horizontally,and creating a solid front for it and painting and adding pulls to match the sink base.

    the vanity is about 8″ to close to the toilet for code. It is commonly cited on home inspections

    Nice! How about pasteing white little mosaic pieces to the counter curve to make it little wider? It would match nicely to your mirror and pictures on the wall.

    Lovely, but looks like the countertop got cut a little short.

  10. It’s true…. I did cut the curve of the counter a little bit shallow and you see about 1/2 an inch of the cabinet. I measured the curve without the door on the cabinet, and made my counter cut. Once I put the door on, I realized that I had fogotten to compensate for the door width. It’s a flaw for sure, but one I decided was not worth ripping the entire thing out for and starting over. The reason I had to use the smaller cabinet next to the bigger cabinet and have the counter curve in to a narrower dimension is that the door to the room swings there and needed clearance.

    Yeah, the lower side cabinet just needs a tiny bit shaved off the back and it’ll be perfect.
