Bathroom renovation project in a London Victorian house.
Do you have a room or rooms in your house that you would not reveal on social media?
I’m guessing YES right? Well, I certainly have many rooms in my home that I don’t reveal for various reasons.
First up are my bathrooms. I have 2 main bathrooms in my house and a guest toilet.
My bathrooms have been the thorn in my side for many years, as they have not been updated since we moved into this Victorian house more than 10 years ago.
There is such a pressure nowadays on social media to show how beautiful your home is, and I do admit that I am at times guilty of that too.
So, this time I’ve plucked up the courage to show you my original unmodernised bathroom before it’s gutted out and transformed.
I am excited to be working with Ripples bathrooms on this bathroom renovation project, and I will show you the process of our partnership in another blog post soon.So here it is.
Totally unmodernised and very vanilla brown in colour.
I’ve tried my best to cheer up the room with a few decor touches.
I’ve used my favourite Pappelina plastic rugs on the floor to add colour. I’ve also styled the room with Aesop skincare products.
Can you tell I’m a fan of Aesop products?Here’s the other side of my bathroom.
As you can see, my bathroom is not terribly large.
If you look hard enough, then you will see water stains on the wall and ceiling at the top left hand corner, all from external blocked gutters.
I’m pleased to say that the gutter situation has now been remedied.
Hardly an instagram worthy room right?This is what the bathroom renovation project looks like now.
As you can see, Samuel Mead, my builder/architect for this project has done the initial ripping out to check the pipework. Tomorrow, he will be removing all the tiles.Samuel has revealed some unsightly protruding pipes that the previous owners had just boxed in.
I’m really hoping that he can bury the pipes back into the wall. A bespoke shelving unit will have to occupy that space soon.
Finally, I’m looking forward to sharing with you this bathroom renovation project over the next few weeks, and I hope you will follow me on this journey.
Have a lovely day.
