Ikea Baths: Using Door Panels to match your Ikea Vanity

Most designers design a single vanity area leaving the rest of the space to be covered in ceramic tile, marble or granite. We believe that a built-in cabinet-look can tie-in the tub and shower areas also.

Here 24 x 18” Stat  kitchen doors were used as matching panels on the sides of the tub; IKEA 21″x39″ doors were ideal for tall sides of the shower area.

The doors should be placed over drywall with some protection to assure that they won’t be in contact with water. There’s some details to figure out, but the look is unique and warmer than traditional hard surfaces.

About IKD

IKD began several years ago designing IKEA kitchens for IKEA authorized installation contractors. We've successfully completed thousands of IKEA kitchen designs for every possible range of size, shape, budget and style. We still continue to design for these IKEA contractors, but also serve those IKEA consumers that just want a design or will install themselves. Most often customers want a better quality design than what they can do with IKEA's Home Planner.

    Stat doors @ tub = trouble. How do you propose protecting the doors from water?
