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?

    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.

    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.
