In February, I had the Bathroom renovation: Before photos, now it’s time for the Bathroom renovation: After pics! We went away at the end of February, and were lucky to find a builder that we really trusted, who we felt was going to charge a fair amount. We left it entirely in his hands, along with a very rough sketch of what we wanted and where we wanted it. When we got back from holiday, it was all complete! We are still waiting for a shower screen to go in (we weren’t sure if we were going to have one), but I couldn’t wait to share the pictures!
I am so, so happy with how it has turned out. We brought down the price where we could, choosing our mirrors and sink from IKEA, and doing a lot of price comparison on the tiles, radiator and bathtub. We went out and bought all of the materials ourselves, so that we didn’t face any mark-up or collection fee on those, which builders often charge.We also did some of the work ourselves when we came back from holiday to cut down on costs – so we painted the walls and put up the shelves and mirror above the sink.
So – one step closer to the flat being finished off. The coffers are currently totally bare (like, please don’t let there be any kind of emergency bill, bare), so even if it isn’t totally finished, I think we might be finished for a little while! Time to start saving again…
What do you think? He he – I know some people are going to be astounded that is, literally, my entire make-up collection.
