Hey hey hey! I’m back with a bathroom update.
We are at the mid point with the bathroom now and it feels like it is just taking forever… This is the second weekend without a bathroom. Thank goodness for the downstairs loo!
I wanted to show you some photos of how it’s going and how a bathroom remodel looks in real life.
It’s easy to show the before and afters I think, but the bit in between is where all the hard work happens and I’m so glad we didn’t attempt to do this ourselves.
There’s been labyrinth like plumbing work and pipes to contend with, as well as a curious layout of electric supply. Basically it feels like every time the bathroom has been done it has just been patched up and built on from the previous attempt and ripping the whole thing out has never been done properly before. Until now.
As you can see there’s the tiles of my dreams on the wall now- I’ve been obsessed with these underground style tiles ever since I can remember. The non bevelled ones I feel give a more authentic vintage look. These are from Tile Mountain.
Here’s just some of the pipework our builders have had to contend with. This is the thing with old houses, you never truly know what you are getting into until you start doing the work.
We’ve got the bath in too and the beginnings of the shower. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m working with local company Bathroom Takeaway, who’ve supplied us with a few of the products we are using in the renovation. The bath is bigger in every way than our old one and I simply CANNOT WAIT to get in it sometime very soon and have a good old soak.
So it is pretty much like living on a building site at the moment and although it is annoying (builders dust everywhere) I feel incredibly happy that we are able to get this work done. It is something we’ve wanted since moving in three years ago.
So I hope that you’ve enjoyed my little bathroom update? I’ll be sharing another work in progress soon and then the big reveal, so stay tuned as I’m sure you’ll love it and I hope it might inspire you, especially if you’ve a small bathroom too.
