Who said Metod cabinets were just for the kitchen? At Plum Living, we're proud to say: the "Ikea hack" is our great passion. Diverted from their original purpose, the Swedish giant's modules can be used in the bedroom, living room, or even the bathroom. Simply hang them up, drill a few holes, and you've got yourself a practical and well-thought-out vanity unit. All that's left to do is dress it up with matte lacquer or wood fronts in your favourite shade for a bathroom cabinet unlike any other. Here is a small selection of our favourite designs to recreate at home.
We can spot their style from anywhere! The architects behind the Heju duo have proven again and again that they work with wood like no other. In this bathroom, the vanity is suspended between two walls and completely covered in light wood fronts & cover panels. The absence of legs emphasises its "floating" feel and lightens it visually. As for accessories, Hélène Pinaud and Julien Schwartzmann stuck to the simplicity so dear to them, opting for a rectangular white porcelain sink and black mixer tap that matches the check floor. A simple and effective mix that works every time
Thought cane was just for wardrobes? Think again! Combined with soft colours such as our Beige 01 - Beige rosé, it can be used in the bathroom to give it a boudoir feel. Installed at Studio Plum Living, this suspended cabinet was designed using 3 x Metod cabinets of 60x40x37 cm, simply fixed to the wall using an Ikea rail. The cover panels and laminate marble countertop make the structure disappear, with the polished brass Bulle handles adding a refined touch.
Take 2 x 60x60 cm wall cabinet frames. Install them to "float" above your floor. Drill a few holes in the top to slide through your siphon and water inlet, and cover it all up with a countertop to make the modules disappear. Add 2 x sinks and mixer taps to your liking, and matte lacquer fronts equally as inviting (our Blue 01 - Lagon here) and voila! From the door handles to the wall lights and bathroom accessories, the brass details give the final touch to this suspended vanity unit, which can be adapted to all your desires.
The Metod cabinet: whether wall-hung or free-standing, they have proven themselves equally suitable for both the kitchen and bathroom. But is the same true for the columns in the same range? In this bathroom designed by architect Déborah Bettan, the sink is delimited by a tall cabinet, creating an ideal spot for storing your towels or cleaning products. Dressed in light oak fronts and cover panels, the layout is almost reminiscent of a wardrobe, and allows every nook & cranny of the room to be optimised. The handles, mirrors and wall lights all in brass are the finishing touches to enhance this stylish project.
On paper, all the classic bathroom aspects are present: sink, mirror, mixer tap, wall lights... And yet, this room is unlike any other. Covered in oak veneered fronts, the wall unit is adorned with a countertop that could be found in a '60's kitchen. The small white tiles are joined with black cement for a graphic effect. The sink extends lengthways to create the impression of space, which is reinforced by the minimalist mixer tap in aged brass. The rounded wall lights add to the retro vibe of the bathroom, while the pink paint adds a quirky touch to the project. We're in love!
Proof that small spaces do not have to lack style! Re-designed by Marn Deco, the suspended furniture in this small bathroom fits "like a glove" into its surrounding alcove. The Metod cabinet is installed against the wall, with its fronts and fittings dressed in all-white to give the vanity unit a light touch. The mirror harmoniously follows the curved shape of the walls. The sink is placed in the extension of the adjacent wall shelf, emphasising the impression of "floating". You'll never complain about a small space again!
