During a very hot week 3 of us were crammed into the very small bathroom as it was refurbished. My plumbers valiantly ripped out and refitted, and I hovered a lot and worked in the evenings on redecorating it.
Here are the finished pictures.. much fresher, no more leaks and hopefully it will stand up to a few years of use well..
New W.C., wall tiles, boxed in plumbing, flooring, lights, taps, mirrored cabinet and sink cabinet:
The scratched and stained bath and shower curtain were replaced with a new steel bath and clear pivoting glass screen:
The walls got fresh bathroom paint and new flooring was laid:
My daughter can change accent colours with towels and accessories. This lovely vintage window pane came from The Beehive in Devizes:
The sink, cupboard and taps came from Victorian Plumbing and add useful storage with mixer taps with ceramic discs on lever handles. These are chrome with ebony levers. The simple large rectangular tiles have dark grey grout that won’t discolour with age, and are a welcome change from the bevelled metro tiles which are currently in most bathrooms.
This wire storage unit fits neatly in a corner and adds some more storage in the room and a little bit of an industrial vibe.
I am really pleased with how it came out, especially given the tiny size of the room. There was no way if reconfiguring the layout, which did save money as I did not have to move services, but I had to measure everything over and over to make sure it would fit as well as create much needed storage.
This was what I would call a low budget bathroom, as I sourced fixtures and fittings from suppliers direct, which saved a large amount of money than if I had bought from high street stores. Plus I did all of the decorating and flooring. But I think it looks far more expensive than it actually cost, so I am very pleased as a result… 🙌
