My Bathroom Renovation


Having a nice big family bathroom is important to me in my home

When I bought my most recent house, I wasn’t put off by the size of the small bathroom

Instead I saw past that and saw the potential in the house, the house has 4 bedrooms

The original bathroom in my house was a very small room which had just a basin and an old cast iron bath

Enough enough space to stand by the basin and open the door

The separate toilet was in a small room directly next to it

Which once again left enough space to get into the room and open the door

The Renovation

After speaking with my plumber and builder who would be doing the work for me, I knew what my options were and how I could achieve the room that I wanted

It was not going to be a small task, but I would still have full access to the old bathroom while the work was being done, just not the toilet

Which was fine as I have a downstairs toilet as well

Walls in the landing were knocked out along with some built in cupboards to make the landing area bigger

 The wall between the toilet room and a bedroom was knocked down

The existing ceilings and floors were all removed and the room completely stripped and re-plastered ready for the work of assembling and installing to start

The new pipe work for water and the new electrical wiring was all put in place and walls were chased out so pipes could sit under the surface and be flush after they were tiled



The bathroom tiles, adhesive, grout and tile edge trim I bought from my local B&Q

I am extremely happy with the quality of the tile and the ease of cutting them too


A new window was needed

It was installed with a satin finish obscurity, so there were no designs on the glass but still obscure


Extremely happy with the results

I am still looking for a huge mirror for the wall above the bath

A large storage cabinet to go on the wall to house all the clean towels and products that need to be in the bathroom

The old bathroom will end up becoming either the study or a single bedroom


See how I cope with the stress of renovation

    Re-tiling your home will be a good job if you get a good set of glue and adhesives for it.
