Eleanor fronts on an oak IKEA Malm chest

A 4-drawer oak Malm chest got a timeless Scandinavian upgrade from Visit Batch with white Eleanor drawer fronts and Elisabeth brass knobs. Creating that little bit of contrast using two neutral colors emphasizes the clean lines and crisp color palette.


Susan fronts on a white Malm nightstand from IKEA

Norse's white lace finish perfectly matches IKEA's white, so these Malm nightstands look sleek and monochromatic with our white Susan nightstand fronts and matte black Marlen knobs. This upgrade was done by our customer Marissa from Philadelphia, PA.

For a bolder contrasting look, use a darker front finish like our customer Sam from Boston, MA. Our charcoal black Joan drawer fronts on an oak, or even white, Malm chest is a popular for more modern interior styles.

Professional DIYer and home blogger Ashely from Texas, also known as @Sugarandcloth on Instagram, added silver sage Astrid drawer fronts to Malm chests used as nightstands.
