The New House – The Bathroom

I only have two more rooms left to show you in the new house! Today I will do a quick tour around the bathroom and at some point soon(ish) I will share the second bedroom on here.

Then after that I haven’t got a clue what to blog about! Oh dear!

Anyway, I will spare you all my usual excuses about my bad mobile phone photos and get straight down to business describing the bathroom that we inherited with our new house and our future plans for it.

IMG_3130IMG_3131IMG_2388As you can see, we were lucky with our new house that the bathroom was in decent shape and in good order with a new(ish) white bathroom suite (thank goodness for that! no putting up with yucky 80’s beigey-yellow shell shaped sainitary ware and messing around putting in a new suite here!), simple plain rectangular white tiles from floor to ceiling and a nice internal door with a working lock on it!

Whoop! In our last house I hated the interior doors and we had no lock on our bathroom door, something that always seemed to bother our house guests for some reason.

So all that we are going to do in this room is give it a little TLC and tart it up a little.

In fact we have already started doing so!

What we are doing is removing one of the blinds (the blue plastic Venetian one in the photo above. Who knows why the previous owner felt the need to have two blinds on the window?) and repairing the damage from removing it with some spare tiles that were left behind in the garage. We are also replacing a cracked tile near the loo, building a tall, narrow cabinet to store our toiletries and cleaning products, replacing the piece of wood in the photo below that has the shower screen fixed on it with a plastic fixture as it the wood has stared to rot, changing the shower screen to a folding one so that its easier to climb in and out of the bath, replacing the wooden window sill with a more practical plastic one, changing the bath panel from the pine wooden planks shown below to a simple white plastic panel, and finally, changing the flooring to a nicer coloured lino.

Blimey, now that I have listed our plans, that seems like a hell of a lot of work!

Oh well, it will be worth it in the end!
