Q. Are we insane?

12 May

A. Yes.

We gave up this lovely multi-coloured bathroom below in our old flat…


For this bathroom in our new flat… (Believe it or not the window actually looks more scary without the silver insulation stuff – if the windows guy would hurry up and make our new windows it would be a big step forward!)


But this is all about to change! Here’s the first brick from the wall we’re taking down (that’s the wall the toilet roll is currently on and the bit of wall with the cr*ppy shelf on it)…


So we’re a whole lot of bricks closer to our planned Japanese bath, his and hers sinks and a much-longed-for shower. Yay!

      Thanks Laura. It was actually one of my favourite things about our last flat… but the new one will be better!

      I hope!

    Wow that really is a toilet in a tunnel! Can’t wait to see the result, your old bathroom was fab!

      Ha! That’s so what we’re going to start calling it! ‘Toilet in a tunnel’ 😉

      Can’t wait for the result either – I should really learn to have some patience!

    I am really looking forward to seeing this transformed! I have a similarly tiny bathroom which we have yet to do anything to other than painting over the blue walls and delightful silver fish/seahorse stencils that were there when we bough the flat. The previous occupant of our flat crammed an enormous and not particularly aesthetically pleasing bath in there which eats up what precious little space there is. Nonetheless I would be sad to sacrifice the bath altogether for a just a shower – sometimes there are days that only a soak in a tub can put right! That Japanese bath looks like a fantastic solution!! Can’t wait to see what you do in there 🙂

      Mmm, seahorse stencils… think I should put some in the new bathroom! 😉

      Yeah we had a similar bath/no bath debate – as once we knock down the wall, the bathroom will be bigger but L-shaped. But then the other half had kept saying when we were in Japan how cool it would be to have a tub bath – and luckily someone does a version in the UK. I’m so looking forward to soaking the day away in that tub!!

    I LOVE those multicoloured tiles! How could you bear to give them up?

    The Japanese bath does look incredibly luxurious and spa-esque though, v posh!

      Yeah those tiles really made the bathroom (and they were pretty cheap too). Did a similar thing with different colours of blue tiles in my old old flat (can you tell I’ve been property obsessed from a very young age?!) so I think we need to do something really different this time round.

      And I hope so on the bath (the pictures on the website make me laugh – the other half so just thought I was sending him a pic of a naked woman when I sent him the link originally!)

    Woah! Honey i cant help but laugh, i really didn’t think there was a bathroom in Britain that was as bad as mine but yours is very close!!!lmao. Your old bathroom was gorgeous, never would have thought of mixing tiles up like that. Good luck on the new bathroom it will be spectacular. x

      Glad to be a contender 😉 And you so know it’s going to get much worse before it gets better!

    ah!!! your old bathroom was AMAZING! it’d make an “uhhh i don’t want to be awake” shower so much more enjoyable.

      You’re probably right Mallory – I certainly have been a lot sleepier in the morning since we moved 😉

Leave a little love...
