Time for the second in the series of Bloggers Homes post. This week I’m joined by the lovely Katie from Mummy, Daddy, Me (you can find Katie on facebook here and twitter here). Katie has recently renovated her family bathroom. Over to Katie to show us round…
We were thinking about moving next year, but we have decided now to stay put for a couple of years and just enjoy our little home, and not to push ourselves financially with moving costs and a bigger mortgage. We are finally getting it how we want it, and I love buying bits and pieces for it.
Pretty much since the day we moved in, I have been wanting to renovate the bathroom. Our old bathroom was horrible- dodgy pipes, ugly tiles, a little mouldy and above all just really plain. It wasn’t my style at all, but bathrooms are expensive, and at the time we just didn’t have the money to rip it all out and start again.
What Do You Love Most About The Room?
I love our new bathroom so much, mainly because the old one was so horrible. It was basic, mouldy, tired and we lived with it for five years before we could afford to do anything with it, so our new one is like a dream come true.
I love the subway tiles the most, I really wanted to go for a subway tile with a black grout as I love that kind of style. The room has kind of a clinical, industrial feel to it, and it’s black and white with only a small hint of blue. I really love it.
What Would You Do Differently?
As we only had it done a few months ago, there isn’t anything I wish I had done differently. I love it all.
What Room is Next on Your List?
We have done quite a lot in our house last year, including a living room makeover and a bedroom one too, but we do have two projects up our sleeve for this year. We are moving my eldest daughter out of her room and into a room with her little sister. The reason for this is that we need a study back as I work freelance and my husband is also thinking about it too. We therefore will need to make the nursery into a joint space for them, with bunk beds I think, and that also means creating a new work space for us too. I am excited as I love to tinker with our home!
Get The Look
Katie has created a gorgeous, crisp & clean bathroom that is suitable for all the family. My favourite thing about it is that the blue can be swapped for any other colour at a minimal cost. Making it super easy to update in the future!
You can get the modern monochrome bathroom look too.
