Laurent. Bathroom. October 15th , 2017.
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.’
Paper a cloakroom, one of the best ways to disguise a small bathroom is to create interest and a striking wallpaper is ideal for this. If you have a bath or shower in the room (rather than it being a cloakroom), make sure you buy one that’s made specifically for bathrooms, which will cope with the damp, warm conditions.
Invest in made-to-measure fittings and fixtures, a well-thought-out design can fit all the essentials into as little as two square metres for a bathroom and even less for a shower room. The key is not to squeeze too much in. If you only have a small space, it’s much better to make a focal point of a walk-in shower or a beautiful bath, rather than ending up with a cramped bathroom.
On their online search, the owners had seen some glass spheres with plants inside hung on walls, and they loved the look. ‘We bought some glass orbs and vases on Etsy, and set to work, deciding on exactly where to position them on the wall, cutting pieces of paper to the size of each vessel and taking our time as we stuck these to the wall to see where they looked best,’ say the crafty pair. ‘Once we’d got them in a position that we felt was just right, we fixed the vases to the wall and filled them with plants and flowers from the garden.’
