New Bathroom on the Horizon

October 10, 2016Susan

Gosh we are so close now, I can almost smell it.

Our new bathroom is looking like an actual bathroom again- but like 200 times better than the last one.

There’s a handful of small jobs needed to finish it, but I’m sharing a couple of snaps here as I just cannot resist showing you… Can you tell I’m excited!?

I never knew I could get so enthusiastic about a towel rail/radiator. This one has the Victorian styling I love and really sets of the classic tiles we’ve gone for too.

Continuing the vintage bathroom theme are these taps… It feels a bit old school not having a mixer tap, but I think the shape of the these is perfect for our bathroom- I love them.

Despite our new bathroom not being quite finished, I have been able to have a bath and let me tell you it was GLORIOUS!

I’m unsure if this is because I’ve not had a bath for ages (showered at my mums FYI), or I really needed it, or the fact that it is longer, wider and deeper than our last bath. Seriously it was like sitting in a puddle in the last bath, especially for my husband who is 6’1 and broad. This bath is like going swimming- pass the snorkel!

So just to remind you of our bathroom journey;

Although in these shots the bathroom looks finished, it isn’t. To be honest, we still haven’t got a toilet as the cistern went missing, and the floor needs finishing off and sealing. We are now within touching distance though and it will be worth the wait.

*On this new bathroom project I’ve been lucky enough to work with two great brands- Bathroom Takeaway who have supplied some of the products and furniture, and Tile Mountain who have supplied the tiles. I’ll go into more detail about what we got from where- a resource list in a future post.

Spread the love

    It’s looking great! Love the towel radiator – I think I have my eye on the same one! I just love that vintage style. We need to measure the space once we’ve fitted all the furniture in though – hopefully we can do that tonight – waiting on a shower tray to arrive as we speak! I am getting super excited about it too, but as yet we have nothing plumbed in – I cannot wait for that first bath in there! Love how yours is looking, roll on the big reveal! 🙂 xx

    Oh I was so desperate to get that radiator in ours but we’ve got a stupid vertical one. I might change it after seeing a peek of yours! Can’t wait to see the finished room, I definitely need to share mine soon x

    The Victorian radiator looks great! I prefer the mixtap. Can’t go back to old style!

    It’s so exciting when a project is finally coming together, you must be thrilled! The bath certainly does look like a good deep one. Really glad you’re so pleased with it so far, look forward to seeing the completely finished room in due course.

    It’s looking lovely, the grey grout looks really smart, and bet it will last nicer much longer than white grout, nice one x
