Bathroom 171

Bathroom Transformation


Materials: Akazie, PLATTA decking

The bathroom that I show was completely white. and the perception of every person that entered the bathroom was… that the bathroom looked very simple and very cold, and that is why I decided to transform the bathroom so instead of transmit a feeling of coldness would transmit a feeling of a warmness and relaxation. I also wanted that as soon as a person would get into the bathroom, would feel like in a spa.


As I said before everything in the bathroom was white. I did not have a big budget for this project, so as soon as I saw the Platta wood tiles from IKEA, I thought that they were perfect for this project.

This kind of tiles are most of all used for the terrace or for a balcony, but I thought… why not putting them in the bathroom?

I also gave some color to the bathroom by adding some dark red details, such as towels, candles, glasses, etc. ( most of this products were also bought in IKEA)

I am very honestly very satisfied with the result. Hope you also like it.

    It looks really nice. But what will happen to the floor under the wood tiles? If you can’t mop it, won’t water pool there and get smelly / mouldy?

      Hi Tim! Well in fact I did not put this tiles in all the floor of the bathroom ( I will take more pictures tomorrow and I will load them on my blog so you are able to see it better). Before putting the tiles I apply a humidity protection on the wood, so that it the water does not get absorbed. To clean the floor under the tiles is not difficult at all. I remove the tiles and clean under and then I put them back again. Believe me, it is not a difficult work!

    Very beautiful transformation, I really enjoy the choose of using red elements. But is not a little bit difficult cleaning up the floor?

    Yes, I agree with Kimmo: it’s nicer but mould is on its way now…

    where did you get the boy/girl crossing legs art? I think that would be a perfect cheeky addition to my own bathroom.

      Hi m@random musings,

      I found the image in the internet, then I painted it on canvas. If you don´t find the image let me know, perhaps I still have it in my computer

    Not really a Hack, but a good use of IKEA Products. Valid comments above, doing this to a half-bath is prefered to avoid mould.
