Interiors: Bathroom Dreaming

The bathroom in our house is also called the room of doom, and we’re putting off doing anything to it just yet because a) it is the only bathroom and I’d rather we were away whilst it’s being done so we can pee freely and b) it will be really expensive. For some reason the bathroom is as big as our living room give or take a foot, and is tiled from floor to ceiling in very odd peachy toned floral tiles (Seriously, what was the deal with decor in the 80’s!) and I am fairly sure the walls behind the tiles are in a pretty poor condition from all the damp. The first thing we’d need to put in is a decent extractor fan.

My ideal bathroom would be light in colour, and instead of the huge tiles we have now I’d love tiny mosaic tiles to surround the sink and as a border for the room, maybe a combination of dusky pink and grey. Larger metro style tiles in a neutral colour, maybe a light grey for the lower half of the walls and then the rest of the walls can be painted, rather than the tile overload we are used to now.

If we changed our current normal length bath for a corner one we could fit a walk-in shower too, which would make Sam’s day, as he’s not a fan of baths at all. Our current ‘over the bath’ shower definitely pales into insignificance compared to a Luxury Shower Cubicle; he often muses about a power shower! I much prefer baths but a corner bath would be perfect for me as I’m pretty short! Maybe even something with Jacuzzi jets for a proper luxury bubble bath experience!

We have a tall cupboard already in the bathroom which is perfect for towels and spare toiletries, but I’d love a wall mounted heated towel rail too, which might encourage everyone to hang their towels up rather than leaving them in damp puddles on the floor, here’s hoping! Finally I’d like to replace our awful peach coloured sink with something higher and deeper, with a mixer tap instead of the clunky ones we have now. Oh, and a clean, crisp white porcelain!

Oh, and if we were going to go all out then a TV hidden in the wall would be great, so no more balancing my tablet on the laundry basket to watch shows in the bath!

So, tell me about your dream bathroom… and check out my bathroom inspiration pinterest board for some more of my favourite bath-related images.
