Bathroom with an industrial edge and luxury details
The bathroom had a myriad of little things wrong with it so I decided it was time to get it redone.
The first thing I will say is that having your bathroom redone is not a small job and its very disruptive, particularly if its the only bathroom in the house. Don't take the decision lightly. Plan what you want and discuss your plans thoroughly with a qualified plumber and skilled tiler.
The first decision was to go for angular rather than rounded lines, on the bath, basin and toilet. This would give the bathroom a modern feel. In practical terms, the new bath is deeper and slightly longer than the old bath, and the basin is much larger (the previous basin was far too small).
I've got a bit of a 'thing' about walls and floors matching when it comes to bathroom tiles. I chose a range that are for walls and floors. The wall tiles are a bone colour, the floor is a concrete grey colour.
The luxury details come in the form of waterfall taps, concealed shower mixer, and a beautiful mosaic border which incorporates the colours from both the wall and floor tiles.
My partner likes a fixed shower head, and I like a flexible one. In practical terms, a flexible shower head makes rinsing the bath easier. So we compromised on.... both. A large fixed square head with a smaller flexible hose shower head and a switch to switch between the two.
Here is the finished item:
