Our New Bathroom Reveal

new bathroom

It comes with a huge feeling of happiness that I write this post. Our new bathroom is finally complete. I have put together a tour for you and in this post I will show you around the room in pictures.

When we moved in two years ago the bathroom was one of the first rooms that we needed to redo. So after a long two years of saving for various bits around the home, getting the kitchen done we bit the bullet this January and started to strip the old bathroom. It was on a whim on my part. I had just got so fed up with the old bathroom I just told Daniel one day thats it we are doing it today and I started ripping off the tiles and the old rackety mirror. 

Living in our home and doing work on it, with children, is a juggling act because we need to make sure the room is still useable around all the work we were doing, especially so in a bathroom. We managed this somehow and I still remember one evening Archie having a bath with the window out while Daniel fitted the new one. Oh the memories.

Here are a few before and afters:

As you can see from the pictures the old bathroom was in a really bad state and needed a huge amount of TLC. The reason we left this room for so long was because it was one of the biggest jobs in the house. We needed a new window due to mould. We needed to srip back the walls to bare and insult and re board them before we could even think about adding a new bathroom and decorating and adding tiles. It definitely was a long road. But looking back over that period now, reminds me how completely worth it it was and I cant stop smiling every time I walk in there.

I took the photos of the old bathroom when I had literally started to tear it all apart because I was so fed up with looking at it. Thats why the mirror is broken as I had tried to pull it off the wall myself and obviously not been strong enough!

So here it is our beautiful new modern and clean bathroom. I cant tell you the feeling of satisfaction I feel that we are bathing in a clean new bathroom. The old one never felt clean no matter how much I cleaned it. It is a huge transformation and actually the photo I will link below does the old bathroom justice. You can’t see all the old pipes or the mould really unless you look really closely (I did find one with the pipes on show.. above).

I really looked around for all the bathroom bits as I wanted to do it on an affordable budget. I will link below here where I brought the bathroom bits from.

As the room is very small we tried to make as much storage as we could as we had no storage at all in the old bathroom. We also wanted to add a little personality which is why we added the little oak shelves so I could put some personal bits on them.

We also decided on a completely blurry window so we don’t need a blind for the bathroom at all. I am really glad we spent our money on a new window, definitely worth it.

I wanted to compliment the brightness of the room with a warm colour so I choose yellow. The room itself is really small but I think it just looks lovely. It is so nice to walk in here and I do find myself coming in a lot. Cleaning here a lot. Just because I like been in here. The novelty of its newness has still not worn off at all. Bath times are definitely the best.

I still cant believe it is ours it feels really really good, especially remembering where we came from. Thats a really good feeling. I look forward to bathing our new little bundle in here come christmas. I am just so glad we have a clean bathroom now especially with the new arrival.

I would also just like to say this bathroom didn’t come easy to us it was a lot of hard work and a lot of saving on our part. You don’t realise how everything adds up when you start a job in the house until you have actually started. There are all the little bits that add up like nails, silicone, grout, paint etc. The list becomes endless it almost feels like. I am so pleased to have this at the end of it and especially a huge big thank you to my Daniel for creating this for us to enjoy.

Lots more projects upcoming on the house but of course all in due time.

Here is a little video tour I put together for you. I hope you enjoy.

  5. July 13, 2017 / 3:49 pm

    Wow what a huge difference. It looks so much better. Was that a yellow sink before?

    I absolutely love it! My bathroom so needs redoing, I love your tiles and colour. Kaz 🙂

  10. July 14, 2017 / 9:44 pm

    Absolutely love that tiled wall! It’s amazing how much something so simple can change a room!

  11. July 14, 2017 / 9:47 pm

    Wow it’s beautiful! I love the mustard colour, its stunning against the white.

  12. July 14, 2017 / 9:53 pm

    Wow it looks amazing. I love the mustard against the white and those shelves are perfect. Total bathroom envy x

  13. July 14, 2017 / 10:04 pm

    I love the exposed wooden shelves, and the yellow splashes! My bathroom looks more like your old one that your new one, it’s on our list to do but it’s expensive so it’s being put off!

  14. July 15, 2017 / 10:51 am

    The little details were beautiful, the cactus, the candles, love them ^_^
    So happy that you finally got your bathroom just as you wanted it!

  15. July 15, 2017 / 1:31 pm

    It looks fab. We’ve also got a tiny bathroom and it’s so hard to get everything we wanted but like yours it’s now small and perfectly formed

  16. July 15, 2017 / 3:35 pm

    What a transformation!! I love the tiles and the shelves, you’ve done such a good job! x

  17. July 15, 2017 / 3:47 pm

    I love the yellow. I have always loved the white tiling bathroom as it makes it look so clean and so bright but everyone always goes for grey or black towels to go with it. I love the brightness of the yellow and it’s such a nice colour.

  18. July 15, 2017 / 8:48 pm

    WOW!! I love it! It looks amazing, and I am very jealous as our bathroom plans are still on hold due to an issue with the plumbing! I love the mustard, I will consider that colour scheme for ours!

  19. July 15, 2017 / 11:58 pm

    Faboulous work! The tile
    Selection is really good and white makes it bright while the yellow adds to the beauty! Spot light is very thoughtful! Makes it look mor elegant! The IKEA holder- does it really stay well with just the suction cups it is it screwed!? Most of the bathroom accessories I bought before failed to stay and I almost stopped buying the products with suction holder!

  20. July 16, 2017 / 6:14 pm

    It looks amazing! We have a small bathroom too and was thinking of using white tiles too to keep it bright & airy. I can’t wait to get ours done x

  21. July 19, 2017 / 11:18 am

    Wow what a transformation! It’s beautiful – I love the pop of colour and those shelves are stunning 🙂

  22. July 19, 2017 / 1:33 pm

    ah I love it, love the yellow rug ♥

  23. July 19, 2017 / 1:46 pm

    It looks gorgeous! We had a new bathroom last year and it is just the best thing ever. Moving on to the kitchen next 🙂

    Oh my goodness the transformation is spectacular, I particularly like the mustard trimmings. Well done you must be so pleased 🙂

  25. August 7, 2017 / 10:06 pm

    It looks amazing! Love the pop of yellow against the white. We moved at the end of last year and I would love to re-do our bathroom.

  26. August 9, 2017 / 12:29 am

    It looks absolutely gorgeous! Well done you! Definitely worth all your efforts!

  27. October 3, 2017 / 9:40 pm

    Looks absolutely fabulous!! When we moved we started with the bathroom as when I saw it I said I can’t possibly live in this lol. It had carpets on the floor (yuk), and the colours were a very lovely old lady pink bath, toilet and sink + brown….greenish tiles ….We’ve redone it all to a simple, clean white.

  28. October 6, 2017 / 3:20 pm

    Your new bathroom is beautiful. I’m so pleased it’s making you happy. I especially love the tiles and those brown shelves are gorgeous!!!! Our home is rented and the bathroom is lovely, except it shouldn’t be called a bathroom because they ripped out the bath and installed a shower! Who wants a bathroom with no bath?!
    The storage under the sink is great.

  29. October 8, 2017 / 12:46 pm

    I love your tiles and your flooring, the simple white is just stunning. We’re hoping to do our bathroom soon so it was great to get some inspiration 🙂

  30. October 8, 2017 / 6:45 pm

    Aw that looks so lovely, I’m a big fan of metro tiles, looks so stylish and pretty. We’ll have to redo ours so I’m on the look out for inspiration 🙂

  31. January 30, 2018 / 7:07 am

    Wow, amazing post!! It looks absolutely gorgeous! We recently bought a new house, and the whole shower has to go – but as soon as we remodel our bathroom. By the way thanks for sharing this post.

  32. June 6, 2018 / 4:00 pm

    Hi Tanita!
    Your new bathroom looks sleek and modern! Love the tiles and the shelves! 🙂

    Shelves and installing a small, functional corner sink are great ideas. Using white color would always make space look bigger.

  35. June 19, 2019 / 6:21 am
