Bathroom. Wednesday , August 30th , 2017 - 18:50:17 PM
The couple decided to live with the bathroom for a while to give them time to think of all the different ways to change the space. ‘We realised it would be crazy to spend thousands of pounds ripping it all out,’ they say. ‘The basics were fine and we were sure it could be revamped beautifully.’ Poring over websites for hours, the couple fell in love with the industrial feel of white brick tiles with grey grout. As they already had white tiles, the DIY duo got stuck into scraping out the old grout. ‘We found matching tiles to cover the bath panel, which made the room look sleeker and less “country”,’ they say. ‘And once the new grey grout was done, the room looked so smart.’
Add a hint of colour to a white suite, while a white bathroom suite is the best choice for opening up a small space, it can sometimes feel a little stark if the whole room is white. That’s why a hint of colour on the walls is the perfect compromise: light enough to create an airy feel, but with bags more character. Here, the storage alcoves were built from tongue-and-groove panelling, then painted in white to contrast with the raspberry walls and striking cobalt-blue tiles.
Factor in a slipper bath, if you can’t squeeze a standard roll-top bath into the bathroom, consider a shapely slipper bath – many come in short versions and they’ll let you rest your back in style. And furnish to scale, Large items of furniture can dwarf a small room so always buy pieces that suit the scale of your space. In a small bathroom, stick to the basics of a vanity unit and storage rack that you can either hang on the wall or rest on the edge of a bath. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t pack on the personality. Paint a vanity unit in your favourite colour and opt for patterned tiles on the floor.
