Steal This Look: Scandinavian Modern Laundry Room

Issue 2 · Bath Essentials · January 12, 2010

I fell hard for this Scandinavian modern laundry room from the Asko site a while back: The white and steel gray palette is soothing and clean. If you are lucky enough to have a laundry room, recreate the look with white tiles and white cabinets (a can of white paint will do the trick, or consider resurfacing the cabinets in Formica).

Above: The white ceramic Domsjo Sink from Ikea is 25 inches wide and 27.25 inches deep; $185.99 at Ikea.


Above L: The Blanco Commercial Pull-Down Faucet is available in polished chrome or stainless steel; $747.50 at Designer Plumbing Outlet. Above R: A less expensive option is the Hjuvik faucet in nickel-plated brass; $249 at Ikea.

Subway Ceramics Tiles at Remodelista

Above: White 3-by-6-inch Ceramic Tile from Subway Ceramics (consider laying the tiles in a stacked pattern instead of the usual brick pattern).

Above L: The Stainless Steel Rundel Laundry Bin is $39.99 at Ikea. Above R: The Umbra Chrome Laundry Hamper is another good choice; $59 at the Container Store. Also see our post 10 Easy Pieces: Laundry Hampers for other options.

Above: The woven plastic Vera Rug from Swedish company Pappelina is ideally suited for wet rooms, and it's amazingly soft underfoot (Julie has one in her kitchen). $125.53 for the 59-inch length; $167 for the 118-inch length at Scandinavian Design Center. Other sizes available.
