Last weekend, Steve and I decided we needed to get out of town for a bit. We headed up to Minneapolis to explore (and of course, check out Ikea). We had a sink picked out that we were hoping would work for our laundry room. I also had a long list of picture frames and other accessories to help get our house feeling more pulled together.
We got to Ikea and were greeted with this sight in the marketplace:
Yeah…apparently they are doing some renovating of the marketplace. Quite the let down to this girl…so, we didn’t pick up any fun things to decorate with. Boo.
Our new sink love is the LILLÅNGEN from Ikea. It has a very slim profile and as a bonus, comes with 2 hooks to hang towels on and has a small shelf inside to set hand soap on. While we were there, we also spotted a faucet that complemented perfectly:
GRUNDTAL faucet from Ikea.
We took our purchases and headed home…where we got started with the worst part of buying ANYTHING from Ikea…
Luckily, we weren’t missing any pieces, we didn’t get in any fights, and we got it assembled in under an hour. Win.
Here it is sitting in our laundry room. You can see the outline of where the old sink was…this really helps you get the scale of how much smaller this is than our old sink. We have a bit of an interesting situation since our hot and cold water pipes come up through the floor instead of out of the wall like usual, but we’re brainstorming ways around it. Details to come once we are at the sink installation point…
Anybody else have the LILLÅNGEN sink? Embarking on an European/American plumbing conversions anytime soon? Sink stories to share? Let’s start the week off on a good note
