This was a big job and it involved completely gutting the bathroom including stripping the walls back to the stud work. We spent a couple of weeks showering in the backyard with our camping solar shower and for the few days we were without a toilet we borrowed a camping toilet from friends.
Our bathroom was the ugliest room in the house so we were not sad to see it go.
Here are the before shots.
Then there was the fact that our toilet was on a weird angle so you were facing the corner when sitting on the throne.
Our bathroom is a good size but it was just slapped together by a previous owner.
The floor in our bathroom was just unfinished concrete which we covered with a bamboo mat.
The vanity unit was old and all of the basin was scratched. We had replaced the taps when we moved in and so were able to reuse these in the new bathroom.
The tiling around the taps had never been done properly instead the tile had just been cracked to allow space for the taps.
The shower head was supported by a piece of garden hose.
The window frame was water damaged and the plaster board was cracked.
The sealant around the bath was messy and grubby. Because the bath was so uneven the sealant had been used to fill in the gap.
And here is the finished product. The walls are pale grey, the tiles around the bath and shower are white and the floor tiles are a charcoal colour.
We constructed a partition wall instead of installing a shower screen.
We are so glad to have it all finished and the total cost came in at just under $4000 including the professional tiler.
This is the last big job we had to do and we are now on the home straight.
