Before
Prior to the renovation, our bathroom was an extremely tired looking early 1970s affair. Complete with lacy curtains, mustard sink and bath combo, cramped shower with a linen cupboard that you could access from from the hallway. There was no storage space in the bathroom itself, aside from a very narrow 'shaving cupboard' and no shelving in the shower. Plastic towel rails, no ventilation and weird sea themed wall decals. The room was dark and dingy and a little depressing, need I say more?

After
The new bathroom is light, bright and feels very spacious, despite it being a small space. We took out the linen cupboard, widening the existing shower space to fit a bath. We took out the existing bath and put a toilet behind the door (not pictured). A big picture window was inserted in the original window space. A wall mounted draw vanity helps to create a bigger space, as does the new round mirror.

This is the first bathroom that I had designed from scratch. Nick has had a little more experience. We sketched out many variations before finally settling on this design. I had wanted to include a linen cupboard in the bathroom but I am really glad that I let Nick talk me out of it. A linen cupboard would have made the space feel much more cramped.

We are so happy with how the bathroom has turned out.
