When I think things are moving slowly I like to look back at the photos of where we started. The bathroom is finally taking shape but this is what it looked like when we picked up the keys:
We have done lots to strip it all back and bring it into one room and have then spent time plastering it all and getting it ready to tile. We bought the bathroom suite months ago and it has just been sat in boxes taking up space in our ‘bedroom’ and so it is exciting that things are finally underway.
The Husband painted the ceiling and walls and we have now handed the space over to the professionals to work their magic. I hate being cold and despite the room being quite large, there is not actually that much space for a radiator so we are only going to have a heated towel rail. Instead, we have decided to have underfloor heating and that was the first thing to go down:
Next was the floor and we have gone for a dark wood design from Aqua-Step. The floor is designed for wet rooms and spas so there is no danger of it getting too slippery or being damaged by all the water.
Currently the tiles are being installed. At one point The Husband was going to do it but we have got a specialist in and I’m glad we made that decision. As the house is so old, none of the walls are straight and so it has taken some skill to get it looking ‘straight’. We’re having tiles half way up three of the walls and then floor to ceiling around the shower:
If all goes to plan it should all be in this time next week. We have also had a broken pane of glass replaced in the room and so the odd-jobs are starting to be ticked off. My relaxing bath is finally in sight…
