It is finished! 🙂
Still a few accessories to add, but after 12 years in our home, we have finally completed the makeover of our ensuite. (For my American/Canadian readers – what do you call it – it has a shower and is attached to the master bedroom? An ensuite? A half-bath? Let me know, I’m curious!
When I say WE, I just mean we chose it and paid for it, someone else (Jason, I can highly recommend him) oversaw the work, coordinated plumber, tiler, electrician, the hire of the skip, the painter etc.
The sink is a smaller version of the one we chose for our main bathroom when we refurbished it last year. In fact the whole look if very similar – you can see it HERE. You can also see the downstairs cloakroom makeover HERE. Also this time we chose small mosaic tiles instead of the pebbles.
I had a few (essential!) requirements
- more storage
- decent lighting
- an extractor fan
- separate lighting over the mirror (with a separate on/off switch from the main lighting)
- darker floor tiles
- neutral colour overall
- replace the radiator with a chrome towel warmer on the opposite wall
We installed 2 showers in the same cubicle – one electric shower which will provide instant hot water in the summer months when the heating has not been on, and a power shower which can use the hot water in the winter when the heat has been on in the house.
I am really pleased with the overall result. Just need to buy some new towels eand maybe an accessory or two, but not much as it is a small room and I don’t want to clutter it (this will come as a shock to my husband as I am well known for my clutter!)
Here is how it looked before – and how it has looked for about 20 years
Here it was during the process – no going back!
And here is the finished product!
Thanks for looking 🙂
What colour of towels would you choose?
