Shower room – Before and After

This is our new, girly pink, downstairs shower room and we love it 🙂 Aiden, not so much!










There are two things I would have done differently if I were decorating this room again…..I would have bought the silvery lino and gorgeous pink flowery towels I saw in B&M when we first started shopping for the new house.

We decided to use the blue and white lino in the kitchen, upstairs toilet and bathroom and decided that it made sense to take it from the kitchen and into the hall and shower room.
I do like the lino and there is a bit of blue in the flower pattern on the tiles so it’s not completely out of place but I think the silvery lino would have made it perfect for me.

I can’t see the towels I liked on the website so I’m not sure if they still have them but I’ll have another look next time I go, just in case!

We’re going to be decorating the kitchen over the weekend so hopefully by this time next week I’ll have a kitchen again and it might start feeling like we’re actually getting somewhere!

    It looks fab – we replaced our whole bathroom last year and it was three weeks of hell so you have made the right choice

    I'm not a pink person but that does look much better after the makeover.I love the chequered floor the best.

    I love it! Pink is my fab colour and I think some bright against the paler colour looks fab 🙂

    Really have no words other than – wow. What a different. What a great job you've done! It looks gorgeous. I absolutely love it. I do think though, that my husband would have vetoed a bathroom like yours. And so would my boys… You are so lucky!

      The husband has his blue and white bathroom and toilet upstairs so he's happy enough! 😀

    I am such a dunce when it comes to DIY, I really wish I could transform a space like you can. I just don't have the confidence. Love the flower prints on the wall x

    Oh I like it, its not that pink! Love how fresh it looks.

  22. Kate Thompson 25th February 2014 at 5:41 pm

    MUCH better, and you did it without pulling the suite out too which is much more hassle and expense. Looks FAB!

  23. FranglaiseMummy 25th February 2014 at 2:42 pm

    Ooh, I love it! Although I am slightly jealous as we are tenants (after years of home-owning in France) so I have to put up with other people's tastes 🙁 I especially love the flower pics….now there's an idea for making our rented house more "ours"…

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
