A new bathroom

Our bathroom was really,really grotty.......but when we moved here 5 years ago we knew we would be completely stripping it out......and decided not to waste money on cosmetic improvements......though I'm not quite sure how we've managed to live with it!!! 
It is also a very tiny.....and I do mean tiny bathroom......so after much discussion......we decided that as all of us rarely use the bath.....to do away with it and just have a shower.
So everything was stripped out and the walls replastered. As well as being tiny......it's a very dark room.....so we had it completely tiled in white......with an aqua/blue mosaic border to add a touch of colour.
Just having a shower means we've got room for storage units......very important when you live in a small home.
We decided on aqua mosaic effect rhino flooring for a little bit more colour.
and a nice big heated towel rail.....essential in the winter here.
and so it's all come together
with a few decorative additions
this is the third bathroom that those 2 birds have lived in
and the mug came all the way from Discovery Cove in Florida 8 years ago.
I love....love.....love our new bathroom.

What a great remodel with the addition of extra space & a beautiful shower. (I'm such a bath person that when we were looking for our home 6 years ago, we only looked at them if they had a jetted tub in the master bathroom!)

OOoooh...pretty! How nice to have a new and bright room. You must be so happy with the change. It looks great, Jacky!

Oh that is gorgeous - love the colours. We had long conversations about the shower/bath thing here too. We compromised with a shorter bath.

Bet you smile every time you walk in - I would :)

What a difference! No wonder you love your new bathroom Jacky, it is lovely and bright - and warm with that radiator.

Jacky - it looks sensational! A towel warmer sounds like such a good idea and your colours are wonderful!
