Bathroom Inspiration

Morning all! This week I have been busy packing up our lovely little North London flat ready for a move East into our new house, which by all stretches of the imagination is a total dump. Seriously. But its exciting - the chance to restore something back to its former glory is something years of Renovation Man, Grand Designs and Homes Under the Hammer (to name but a few) has made me want to give it a go myself. And I must be somewhat of an expert now after watching all of those shows no?!

But anyway, one of the first things we need is a bathroom so today I wanted to share with you some of my thoughts as to the direction we might go. Its a new area for me, so any advice greatly welcomed!

 

 Two themes you will notice in these images is storage and a double sink. What these look like yet, I'm not sure. I love this big chest of drawers, transformed into a vanity unit and I have looked EVERYWHERE for something similar but I think the only way to do it is to transform a chest, adding the sign and plumbing into the back. Could be tricky but maybe I can get Peter on board to help on this one...



So back to the double mirrors. I love the set up where you have two sinks, and two mirrors above. Has that luxury hotel bathroom vibe about it, whilst also being super practical. Also, the taps coming out of the walls, rather than out of the sink is another #want of mine. I wonder if they are tricky to install?


Part of me thinks, as I want it to last for years, I should stay really simple, and go all out white in the bathroom and then accessorise with towels, lovely rattan baskets etc like this.  The other part of my wants black walls and gold taps...


I love the dram in this room. The wood panelling, the walk in shower and of course the roll top bath. I think budget will be a deciding factor on this one but I have to squeeze a roll top ion there somehow right??

Have a look at my post from a few months ago about tiles if you are looking for ideas for your bathroom too.

Have you done a bathroom renovation yet? How did it go? Would live to see pictures and hear any tips!

  1. Well, you can’t go wrong with going all white. Though it you really prefer black with gold trimmings, then you can look for ways to make that work too. Though I think a dark-hued bathroom only works if there are a lot of natural light coming in to the room via windows and such, though you could probably alter the mood with lamps and such. Whichever you end up choosing, I hope it turns out to your satisfaction. Good luck!
