Our bathroom is completed!:):) So very, very happy with how it looks:):)
Just love our bath, reminds me of a gravy boat:)
There are a few finishing touches needed but the majority of work is done.
Ah and the shower, you may just drool a little, I do;)
It is semi-frameless, a huge search to find what we wanted.
Our towel holders were an epic search, PC was determined to find a hook that would spread the towels to dry but we couldn’t find anything for a bathroom that showers potentially 6-10 people. Can you guess their ‘former life’?
Yep wire fruit bowls, they suit the decor and meet all his requirements.
Final look as you exit, to see how all flows.
Eventually there will be a basin installed to the left of the door, there is already a mirror awaiting.
The ‘hub’ and center of all, lots of action occurring here. The powder room to the left, toilet straight through and main bathroom to the right.
Ah powder room how I love thee!! Really every large family should have one. The powder room receives so much use and eases up congestion in the bathroom. Over the holidays we had fourteen people in the house one weekend, one morning we were all getting ready for an 8am Mass, young ladies, young gents, bigs and smalls and we made it out the door in a timely manner.
Yep I love thee:):) It makes me smile to walk past and see my big boys and girls fixing their hair, little boys brushing teeth, camera moments.
We ‘ran into a snag’ with the powder room, we had ordered semi-recessed basins and blithely thought it would be a matter of choosing a top and we’d be ‘good to go’. Um no. When we hit the hardware store and discovered a marble bench would be thousands of dollars, and we needed four, we ‘had a moment’! We then decided to ‘think out of the box’ and choose a kitchen benchtop, laminated compressed chipboard, far more affordable.
PC was able to cut one piece in half as they the boards were so deep, and then began the ‘nerve wracking’ moment, PC began to cut out the basin shapes. Princess coated the boards liberally with wet area coating for protection and we decided if we have to replace later it’s still cheaper than the marble.
Oh you want to see the toilet? Well standard issue but my these babies can cost a fortune, most start around $700! (I didn’t spend that much) Most likely where the name ‘throne’ originated I suppose.
Our ensuite, and how I love thee! Every day I feel as if I’m swanning in motel luxury.
I kept with the same choices as the main bathroom, I ‘like what I like’.
On the left you’ll note another basin bench and above PC built a built in cupboard with 4 shelves in total. He plans to build a frame to hang a 2 walled mirror on, it will swing on hinges and cover the cupboard.
I’m very very spoilt I know with three bathroom/ensuites and a powder room, though discovering it all takes a bit of work to keep them all looking clean. Oh well first world problems;)
A huge, huge THANK YOU to my TALENTED husband, who undertook and ‘pulled off’ this massive project!!
