The owners wanted a different bathroom

This bathroom had Gro Helene Sikkeland’s hat in mind for a while, and after some persuasions she also got the man in the house with the bathroom dream.

– The box as we have the sink on top I found on flea many years ago. The big closet saved my husband from container death. There is a lot of space and you never get enough storage space. Good to have all the towels and bathroom items hidden inside a closet. There will be a lot of dust in a bathroom, as practical as possible, as far as possible, says Gro to the magazine Lev Landlig.

On the floor, they chose historical cement tiles from old houses. no, by name Italian no. 16.

They are durable tiles, used in buildings in townhouses for over 100 years, and fit well in bathrooms, around an oven or at a time.

– Because there is a lot of pattern in the tiles, we chose the same color on the walls and decor. We wanted the tiles to have the main focus and scanned the color of them. Few colors in a room create a calm feel and the bathroom should be a place of relaxation and well-being. But at the same time, this is a color that differs slightly from the colors we have used in the other rooms, and we get the effect we want, says Gro.

Tips for getting a nostalgic style in the bathroom

● Paint an old display cabinet or chest of drawers in an old-fashioned color code, instead of buying a new décor. Replace the knobs with someone in the old style.

● Finding lights you like, which are not meant for bathing, will work well as long as they are mounted outside the wet room zone.

● A small stool with stained paint can be a nice touch. To get up to things or to wear the socks.

● Wall panels painted with wet paint are a good alternative to tiles.

● Dimm the switch for dim lighting when taking a bath.

A shower cubicle can be hard to keep clean and they chose to wall up their own shower room instead. It has clean, clean surfaces that make the cleaning simple and feels more spacious than a cabinet. The knots on the cabinets have been replaced and she has found someone in the old style. On the windows they have set up a window foil in a nostalgic pattern to let them go. There are small details that help give the bathroom the old style they want.

Details have Gro eyes for.

She loves towels with lace edges, light with scent of lavender and rustic curves for storage of dolphins and leaves.

All this helps to emphasize the rural style, and the old-fashioned lights are the icing of the i-one in this bathroom.
