Alright guys, so we have had the same blue tiles, blue shower curtains and even blue walls and accessories for THEE longest time ever! So we thought it would be a great idea if we change everything completely. I actually wasn’t all too happy about changing the blue, I loves the blue theme, in fact I was just as annoyed when we were were moving houses. I guess your brain gets attached to things quickly, well atleast mine does. However, change is good and I am already beginning to settle in to my new home and feel comfortable in it. Although, I must say, it will never be the same or as cosy!
Although I was beginning to feel god about a little changing up here and there I was not at all thrilled with how it may turn out. My parents had decided on a neutral theme, which I guess is okay, it would be completely different to our vibrant blue, but I was hoping that it just wouldn’t look so dull.
One of the first things my parents bought, were these sample tiles from B&Q (I did not know you could do that). They decided to pick a tile border first and then work put the rest from there. They brought home one sample that had gold tiles with mirrors, it was so elegant and bedazzling, the other contained greys, blacks and silvers, they were both so exquisite and well made that we all fell in love with them instantly. We all decided that the black silver and grey one would fit in brilliantly with a neutral theme but it was way too hard to part with the gold one, so instead of saying goodbye we thought we could use it in the kitchen (our kitchen was also blue) and that is exactly what we did.
I picked all the accessories myself, I thought I should pick enamel and silver, which is nothing like our old oak one. I thought it looked modern and very classy, I just loved it and so did everyone else.
Even though we didn’t need to change our bath, toilet and sink, we still did, because we are awesome like that heh. I kinda missed the old ones, this set looks a little more elegant and our old one was much more curvy and cosy and cute looking. I was kinda grumpy about that change, but we are getting used to it.
My mum picked the floor tiles and my dad picked the roof style. I was really shocked when I saw the ceiling, I guess I didn’t think it would turn out that good!

Ceiling undone and check out them ugly shower curtains wahayy
Alright so now that we bought a bath tub with a shower attached, we no longer will use the other one, it will be off limits for stinky hands and reserved for granma to use!
Okay so my eye caught this mosaic mirror, I found a similar one in Argos but it only had two mosaic rims around the side, I preferred the three circled mosaic rims, me and my mum found this at Homebase, we were thrilled, because we were running out of time and needed to bring home a mirror before the builders disappeared. At first we found a huge rectangular one, but felt it just didn’t it this bathroom.
Alright even though we had already bought a mirror, me and my dad decided that the mirrored cabinets looked far better than those that are solid, this is the one we opted for, which isn’t too different from our previous one, but we preferred the white over oak, for the style we had decided to go for.
Closer look at the tub 😉
Okay I just realised that I forgot to take pictures of the floor and ceiling, so i just took a quick picture of the ceiling right now, and it’s just real bad lighting, but it’s basically grey and silver borders, chosen by my dad! and the floor tiles are just rough style concrete floor tiles in the colour light grey, picked by my mum!
I’m glad I took all these pictures, it did take a few days to complete, but overall I am delighted at the outcome. I hope you enjoyed the pictures and hopefully gave you some ideas on how to decorate or choose a theme for your bathroom.
You won’t believe this, but I just typed the entire blog post and it all deleted and I had to re write it and it doesn’t look as great as it first did, *well that sucks*
Anyhoo, let me know if you all liked this post, more home renovation blogposts coming up!
