The cabinets had obviously been white and badly painted black, and the piece de resistance of course was the free standing black bath with silver feet, these are all the photos I have but you get the idea.
We managed to squeeze into the bathroom a large shower that has a steam facility, a bath, toilet and basin. No way was I going to live in a home without a bath which did delayed the decision making and involve a lot of planning but we got there. It was my original desire that I would be able to lay in the bath and look through the door across the bedroom to the hills but we had to move the door and take a chunk out of the bedroom to make space for new fitted wardrobes. I was disappointed this didn't happen and very sad when the new wall was tiled, no going back then.
However the new bathroom is very beautiful. There are just a few final touches, for example we fitted shiny white panels to the ceiling and the very last one to go up was damaged.
We have to wait a week for a replacement but I can't wait another week to show you.
|There's a handy storage drawer under the basin so I only need display my most beautiful toiletries|
|It was difficult to find a wash basin that didn't project too far into the room but still had putting down space, this is great|
|A lovely big shower head and in the photo below you can see there is also a little spray, presumably for those hard to reach areas. Yes there is a slight slope on the shower ceiling that's to allow the condensation to drain when we are steaming|
|That's not a phone on the wall in the shower its the controller for the steam facility|
|The back lit auto demist mirror is operated by holding your hand at the bottom, Mr FF has left the instruction on the wall for those of us who fail to embrace technology|
|The pale grey marble that edges the bath is also used in the bottom of the recess behind the toilet|
We designed the layout ourselves (after much argument) and sourced the fittings and tiles direct. We paid day rates to Jim our plumber/tiler/boy wonder who added some very lovely details, Jack our joiner and Lewis our electrician, Mr FF project managed and I was the gofer doing emergency dashes for bits and pieces in town. I also provided copious amounts of tea and coffee, biscuits, bacon sandwiches and sometimes lunches, everyone got on great and it was a pleasure to have the boys around. We are all delighted with the end result but personally I am so glad its finished. Now where's my shower cap.
