Our home is from the late 1950′s. The bathroom was redone in the 1970′s by my dad and was in need to be replaced. Since the room is very tiny we decided to move the bathroom to the smallest bedroom.
This room also had a small walk in closet which was located above the downstairs toilet. We turned the walk in closed into a walk in shower and had a toilet, a vanity with sink and 2 cabinets fitted. We also had the downstairs toilet redone. For 3 weeks 1/4 of all floors (from the basement to the loft) looked like a building site. My love said it looked like a war zone. And to be honest, at times it felt like that LOL Especially after the plasterer decided the old plaster had to be removed because it was too sandy.
We are not handy people, so we had everything done by a contractor. The only thing we had to do is remove the 3 layers of wall paper in the room, and the curtain in the bathroom and clean up afterwards. I am still trying to get rid of the dust.
I love my new bathroom. I love how the combination of large grey and white tile make the room look much bigger and lighter. I love the dark brown wooden cabinets. I love the walk in shower, the floor heating and the ample space we have for storage. Is there something I don’t like? Yep. I think we bought the wrong (build in) water tanks for the toilet flush. The flush isn’t strong enough! We often have to flush twice, which I think is a bummer. But I guess we can’t change that anymore. We also decided to have a glass shower door added as the floor in front of the shower gets wet when we take a shower.
The shower is 76 x 115 cm. Unfortunately the 115 cm still is too little to keep the water from the shower inside. So we will install a clear glass door.
This the view from the shower. The floor looks yellowish, but the is caused by the overhead lights. I love how much space we have beside the sink.
Do you like our storage for toilet paper?
We used clear removable plastic hooks to for the the towels beside the sink and for this twig heart.
Love this grey wax lantern.
The downstairs toilet. We didn’t have a sink before. A little detail is the toilet roll holder, we re used it.
My parents bought it in 1977. We found newspapers of that year in the cavity of window.
Love these “knit” candles. The red details were an idea of the love.
Well I hope you like this little tour of our new bathroom/toilet. I am very curious what you think of it, so let me know.
