what was all that crashing & banging about?

I mentioned only the other day that there had been lots of crashing & banging going on in our house recently.  The reason:  we were having our bathroom re-done.  And when I say “having  it re-done”, I mean, we chose to pay the professionals and let them do all the work.  We’ve done a fitted kitchen, in the past, and we’ve laid tiles, but we decided we didn’t have the skills to tackle a total bathroom refurbishment.

Bathroom which, rather strangely looked like this before work.

A bath hidden by kitchen cupboards, and a kitchen sink instead of a washbasin . . . no you’re not dreaming lol.  Previous owners had transformed their old bathroom into a kitchen but since we already have a nice big kitchen downstairs, we didn’t need another one upstairs. 

Anyway, after patiently being on the waiting list since February, for the contractors we wanted in to do the work, workmen arrived on 25th Sept and demolition began.  Work lasted over 2 weeks and now I can show you the results.

We’re really pleased with our brand new bathroom, well shower room really.  We weren’t 100% sure that our choice of tiles, colours, and floor tiles would all work together, but it’s turned out just as we hoped it would.
