What's the best way to give your bathroom a Scandinavian makeover?

The Scandinavian design style is popular for its clean, minimalistic look. It is a style that is both elegant and chic. The simple yet sophisticated design of the Scandinavian home decor makes it an ideal choice for those who want to make their homes more beautiful - but without the clutter of other styles.

To give your bathroom a Scandinavian style makeover, you need to start by choosing the right Scandinavian decor items for your bathroom. These items will be able to provide the desired effect without being too complicated or overwhelming.

What are the 3 must-have Ferm Living bathroom products?

Ferm Living bathroom products have deep hues, soft forms, and rich textures to help you create a unique and relaxing environment. Remarkable patterns, unusual details, and inventive designs provide an unexpected twist.

Ferm Living, based in Copenhagen, partners with craftspeople all around the world, merging their modern Scandinavian design philosophy with global traditions and abilities.

Ferm Living takes its duty to the earth and its people seriously and collaborates with others to do the same.

Here’s their must have products to bring some much needed hygge to your bathroom. 

1 - Treat yourself to some luxurious Ferm Living towels

If you are planning to redecorate your bathroom, then you should invest in a set of luxury towels. They are not just great for your skin but also give your bathroom a spa-like experience.

The Ferm Living Organic Bath Towel will make you look forward to getting out of your shower or bath.

The most important thing about luxury towels is the material - they should be made from 100% natural cotton or Egyptian cotton. The extra-long fibers help to trap moisture without any wringing or twisting, meaning that they will stay soft for longer while absorbing water quickly and effectively.

The Ferm Living Organic Bath Towel ticks all these boxes and more, promise no more than 10% shrinkage and is available in a variety of colors.

2 - Keep it organized with the right shelving unit

Scandinavian style bathrooms are typically minimalist and clean. They are also very organized and have a great shelving unit for storing all of the things that you need to keep in your bathroom.

A scandinavian shelving unit can help you store towels, toiletries, and other items that you may need to use daily in the bathroom. It can also help you organize your towels and toiletries so you don't have to rummage through them every time you want to take one out.

The Ferm Living Dora Shelving Unit is our first choice for having a shelving unit in your Scandinavian style bathroom.

Originally comprising only of the Dora Clothes Stand, the Dora family has grown to encompass a variety of freestanding bathroom furniture.

The basic yet effective danish designs are made of powder-coated metal and are rust-resistant, making them excellent for use in humid environments.

The Dora Shelving Unit offers enough space for all of your bathroom needs and can even be used within the shower due to its slender design.

3 - Finish the Scandinavian bathroom look with a stylish laundry basket

The Scandinavian style bathroom is not just about decoration - it also focuses on the functionality of the room.

A Scandinavian style bathroom is typically well-organized and has clean lines. To add to the decor, you can get a stylish laundry basket that matches the rest of the room.

The key to making your bathroom look good with this style is having a mix of colors and textures. You should have neutral tones like white and black or brown, with pops of color from other pieces in the room like towels or shower curtains.

A stylish modern laundry basket is a must-have in any Scandinavian style bathroom. It will keep your clothes organized, help you stay on top of your laundry - and it’ll do it in a way that’s easy on the eye.

The Ferm Living Herman Laundry Stand mixes past and present by combining powder coated metal with natural canvas. It draws on both modern and historic aesthetics at the same time.

The laundry stand - along with the other two products we recommend - completes your perfect Scandinavian style bathroom.


What colors are used in a Scandinavian bathroom?

A Scandinavian bathroom is often heavy on neutral colors: white, off-white, beige, tan, and light grey, although black and white areas, where black lends drama to the space, are also common.

What's the difference between Nordic and Scandinavian design?

There is one major distinction between Nordic design and other minimalist spaces: the level of comfort.

While many minimalist Nordic rooms might feel a touch too chilly or harsh on the eye, Scandinavian homes are designed to be welcoming and pleasant.

The secret to the success of the Scandinavian décor look is cozy, welcoming tones and accents that suck you into a room and make you want to stay there.

In a Scandinavian-style bathroom, why is it vital to decorate with plants and fresh flowers?

Natural elements should be included in your Scandinavian interior design to give your bathroom a vibrant sense of color and charm.

When it comes to this, try incorporating fresh flowers and indoor plants into your Scandinavian bathroom.

In fact, fresh flowers are a must-have in any Scandinavian house.

Sidewalk florists selling fresh flowers and tulips of all hues fill the streets in the Scandinavian region.

Floral themes and fresh flowers should be used as much as possible in your Scandinavian design.

Why is it important to keep your interior clutter-free in order to get a Scandinavian look?

Making sure that the space is clutter-free is one of the most important characteristics of a Scandinavian interior design. As a result, unnecessary clutter should be avoided, and storage places should be well-organized.

To keep the area seeming less congested and more aesthetically calming, the "less is more" maxim must be followed when it comes to Scandinavian décor.

What are the advantages of light-colored flooring for a Scandinavian look?

A Scandinavian bathroom (or any bathroom) should never include wall-to-wall carpeting. The flooring for the Scandinavian look is frequently comprised of light hardwood materials that are painted white or left in their original light tint.

For your Scandinavian design, laminated light flooring is also a good and affordable option.

Any Scandinavian bathroom can benefit from new flooring, which makes it appear brighter and more spacious while also creating a more warm and welcome ambiance.

Bathroom floors in Scandinavian style homes can also be built with heated tiling to give greater warmth under your feet during the harsh winter months.
