As Finland’s leading manufacturer of bathroom cabinets for several decades, Polaria offers durable and environmentally friendly bathroom furnishings with Nordic minimalism in mind.
“We’ve been a trusted brand on the Finnish market since our founding in 1970,” says Virva Paasonen of Polaria. “Now we’re expanding throughout the Nordic market, so it’s a very exciting time for us.”
Using a special powder-painted steel material for its products, complete with a non-harmful nanoceramic finishing, Polaria produces long-lasting designs for every bathroom. The nanoceramic treatment makes the furnishing especially resistant to humidity, leaving you with a dependable material that is much more water-resistant than a standard MDF cabinet.
“Our strength is in the longevity of our products – when you buy bathroom furnishings from Polaria, you are investing in quality pieces that will last you a lifetime,” says Paasonen, adding: “And of course, the typical Nordic design adds to the longevity aspect – the pieces are classic and will never go out of style.”
As the products are made of steel, they are, of course, also recyclable. The products are delivered fully assembled, ready to be installed. In addition, Polaria’s environmentally friendly profile ensures that each piece is free from allergens, harmful phosphates and odours.
The Polaria product range includes mirror cabinets, washbasin cabinets and washbasins, laundry and cleaning cabinets, and medicine cabinets. The brand also provides aesthetic solutions to make bathrooms more accessible, such as support rails and shower seats.
