Laurent. Bathroom. October 16th , 2017.
The couple decided to live with the bathroom for a while to give them time to think of all the different ways to change the space. ‘We realised it would be crazy to spend thousands of pounds ripping it all out,’ they say. ‘The basics were fine and we were sure it could be revamped beautifully.’ Poring over websites for hours, the couple fell in love with the industrial feel of white brick tiles with grey grout. As they already had white tiles, the DIY duo got stuck into scraping out the old grout. ‘We found matching tiles to cover the bath panel, which made the room look sleeker and less “country”,’ they say. ‘And once the new grey grout was done, the room looked so smart.’
Be clever with tiles, when decorating a small bathroom, such as an en suite in a loft conversion, introduce a horizontal line around the width of the space, either with tiles or paint. This trick will visually widen the space, creating the illusion of a bigger room.
Turn a problem into a feature, use every inch of an attic space by building a bath into the eaves. If you have an awkwardly shaped ceiling – like this loft bathroom – turn it into a decorative feature. Paint the ceiling white to contrast with the statement wallpaper behind. It’s a great way to add character in a confined space.
