Faktum in the bathroom? Yes you can!

Materials: Faktum, Abstrakt, Hollviken

Description: My problem was that I like the Hollviken bathtub, but I personally think that most of the Ikea bathroom furniture aestetically sucks. At the same time, I also like the slickness of the Abstrakt series.

So I took a 80cm wide Hollviken and I mounted it on a 80cm faktum base cabinet designed to resist the weight of a ceramic sink.

Problem was that it was too wide so I had to cut it. Done.

My aunt liked the thing so much she wanted one in her bathroom, but with the small Hollviken.

You can judge the result.

    In fact … you can’t


    Cause the faktum furniture aren’t protected vs humidity Like a GOdmorgon or Lillagen one.

    It’s still a ood idea and it will work in most of the case, but not allways x]

    Nice one… I think the Abstrakt/Faktum series are of good use in living areas as well…
