I know I briefly mentioned our bathroom plans in my last renovation update, but I thought I would write a more in depth post before the big reveal!

So the main thing to mention is that our bathroom is tiny! I know most people think their bathroom is small, but trust me when I say that ours is really small. It’s currently a wet room as the previous owners were elderly. Here it is in all it’s glory…

We think that we could just about squeeze a bath in if we wanted to but we’ve decided against it. I’ve been looking on Rightmove at other houses on the street and can see that some do opt to have a bath but it just looks so cramped. The kids only ever have showers now, and honestly I can’t even remember the last time I had a bath so it’s really not an issue for us to not have one.

The long term plan is to extend so that we can either have a big en suite with a bath, or knock through and make the family bathroom bigger. But even if that doesn’t happen I think that not having a bath is a small price to pay to be able to live in this house. I still can’t believe it’s ours.

Here’s my moodboard for the bathroom…

We knew that we wanted a modern black shower, tap and accessories. We’ve gone for plain white subway tiles that we will have in a herringbone pattern. I went backwards and forwards with this as I also really like them done vertically, but we’ve finally settled on herringbone. I’m sure the tiler won’t love us for that though! The main feature in the bathroom will be the pink floor tiles, aren’t they a thing of beauty? I’ve had my eyes on these for a couple of years now, well before we were even planning to renovate. So I knew I had to have them. I cannot wait to see them fitted.

Work on the bathroom starts in just over a week and we have already bought the tiles, shower, shower cubicle, toilet and sink. It’s all currently sat in our conservatory waiting to be fitted! I really can’t wait for it to be finished, it’s the first big job we’ll have done and it’s very exciting. It’s going to be massively disruptive while the work is happening but it will be so worth it in the end. We are lucky that my mum lives across the road so we can easily pop over to her house for a shower.

What do you think to our bathroom renovation plans? Have you had your bathroom renovated before? Any tips for surviving the work?!

Thank you for reading.
