Making Progress


The bathroom renovation is underway.  After the demolition on Monday we were left with nothing more than bare studs.  All of the ceiling, wall sheeting and floor was ripped out.  We wanted to make absolutely certain that there was no underlying water damage before we went to the expense of new tiles and fittings.

2012-02-23 01The new wall sheeting and ceiling are installed so we are now going forwards with the project.

2012-02-23 02This shows the recess in the wall of the shower which will hold bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel.  I first saw the idea in B & B accommodation.  It makes so much sense to me.  Any shelf or soap holder built into the tiles is a hazard that you can bump yourself on and the hanging shower caddies gather soap scum or rust.  The tiled recess will simply be cleaned with the rest of the tiles and I love the simple, streamlined look of it.

Finally, I would like to thank all of you who took up the challenge of introducing yourselves.  I will respond to each of your comments and look forward to lots of discussion in the future.

  1. I agree – great idea! When I first saw the recess concept I was astounded at how simple and effective it was. I noted it down as one of the ‘must haves’ for the new bathroom.

  2. We’ve just renovated our bathroom too, and it looks so nice and fresh – just in time for our influx of visitors to use too. From your earlier comments about the toilet brush on the wall, I was intrigued and while on holiday, our apartment had one of these – what a brilliant idea. I’m hooked and that’s one of the first things on my shopping list when I next go out. Thanks Fairy.
