Bathroom renovation #12 - Before and After

Now that the bathroom is finished, apart from a couple of little touch ups, I thought you might like to compare the before and after pics. First the bathroom which is where it all started. Before a really ugly bath with a barely usable shower.

Now transformed into a beautiful sleek shower room. A pleasure to use. And don't worry we have not got rid of the bath altogether, we will eventually put one in the other shower room.

Next the kitchen. Where the big, ugly, awkward to reach into larder cupboard has been removed.

There is still a lot of work to be done in the kitchen, but it is great to have a bit of space.

The old front door that opened straight into the kitchen has gone. Much to the confusion of the cats.
And now I have a brilliant larder. Everything is in reach and I can see at a glance what I have and what I need to get.

Then there is the old toilet, which did not have a sink, you had to go next door to the bathroom to wash your hands!

The toilet has been relocated into the shower room, which is far more sensible. The front door is now where the old toilet used to be and we have a lovely calm entrance hall.

From the outside the door and one of the windows have been swapped over. All the ugly pipes and the strange built out bit that contained nothing but air have been removed.

We still have to repaint the exterior of the house. But I am pleased with the effect so far. And I am really pleased with my red front door. Lots more work to be done, but that will have to wait until Autumn I think, when the weather has cooled down a bit.

Oh wow, it's amazing how much work you've done... and it all works so much better. The bathroom fittings are beautiful. I love the sink and taps that you've used for the vanity, and the new red front door makes a lovely entrance... and a pantry to die for too!
