Halfway throughout the week already! Can you believe it? Today we have this lovely bathroom transformation from one of our regular blog readers, Nicky. Nicky totally renovated her bathroom recently and today is going to share how and what she did to make it look so fantastic. I am totally in love with the tiles. The bathroom looks so much bigger!
I’ll pass you over to Nicky……..
We live in a 1930s semi and when we moved in 4 years ago, the bathroom was totally impractical for a family of 3 boys! The shower was tiny to the point that hubby couldn’t use it (and he is not a big man) and the floor which was just painted had not had the gaps between the floorboards filled in so the water would just seep between the them and down onto the ceiling of the kitchen below! Not to mention the hygiene issues.
The first thing we did was to have a new shower unit fitted. I had originally wanted to go bigger but that would have meant moving the radiator and re-hanging the door to open out into the corridor so our builder suggested simply going for a square shower as this would give us more space straight away – which we did. We also took the opportunity to add a removable attachment to the shower so that it would be easier to clean the tiles down.
Then the floor was tiled and I chose white tiles but with a glass mosaic tile border to add interest. It is not a huge room so my original wish of black & white chequered tiles went out of the window!
A new bath panel was fitted and then (eventually) hubs painted it. It was meant to be a dove grey but to be honest it is more of a blue grey! I added some matching coloured bath towels & bath mat from Matalan and hung some of my own photographs on the wall!
Love Nicky xxx

- I am not 100% sure where the shower was from, I have txt the builder but I think it was from a local company called PHS Plumbing
- The paint is Dulux’s Misty Mirror bathroom paint
- The tiles were from the Topps Tiles
