Laundry room, part #3

Remember how there was some discussion whether we would choose Minna's (simple) or Pekka's (a bit more demanding) way of renovating the laundry room? As a surprise to no one, we chose the latter, and rather quickly the project expanded to the small bathroom next to the laundry room. Of course, we wanted to build a similar recycled suspended ceiling to the two spaces, but the bathroom needed some slight alterations before the ceiling could be installed.

Stripped bathroom ceiling

This is certainly one of those cases when one picture is worth so much more than a thousand words. Before Pekka could build, he needed to destroy. Of course, not so easy and fast as one might think at first. And ridiculously messy, considering it is just a few tiles and some cement.

Getting rid of barriers

Even if a laundry room is one of the most functional spaces in any apartment, we wanted this space to be as cozy and inviting as possible. Therefore, Pekka added an indirect light above the towel rail located in the far end of the room. The light underlines the uneven finish and roughness of the white wall, which just adds to the character of this small space. And as another detail, the light is recycled originating from above the sink of the upstairs bathroom!
