Finally Getting That New Bathroom

I have been driving my husband mad for months or actually more like years with my constant moaning about the state of our bathroom.

When we moved in I tried to spruce it up a little with a lick of tile paint, some cheap lino and a few fluffy towels.

Years down the line the tiredness is showing through, cracks are appearing in even more places, and a few pots of paints are no longer going to stand up to this job!

My head has been whirling and my Pinterest has been filling with more and more ideas everyday.

I have really fallen for the clean subway tile look with contrasting black grout. I want to keep everything sleek and uncluttered so it is easy to keep clean and tidy as we have a very busy family life.


With five children the bathroom is a much used room in the house and three boys means dirt and muck is a daily battle!

But aside from being somewhere to clean dirty children I wanted to create a little haven that I can escape to and relax once the children are finally in bed.

Its something I’ve not been able to do for many years and I’m really looking forward to being able to light a few candles and soaking away the stresses of the day.

I have had a vision of what I would like to see but this job has now been taken from my unskilled hands and is being passed over to the professionals.  

The creative side of things is something I love but a professional is a must for a job like this as things such a gas safety inspections that can be carried out after the work has taken place are so important for my peace of mind and the safely of my family.

I am hoping that all the work will be done before Christmas and will be able to show you all how we get along.
