Shower Room Makeover – Before And After

Shower Room Makeover

We’ve never really liked the pink fittings in the shower room. We’re saving up to have them changed but until then, we’ve decided to embrace the pink!

I’ve been searching Google and Pinterest for ideas on the best way to decorate a room with pink fittings.

I can’t say I’ve ever thought about decorating with grey. When the first coat had gone on the walls, I have to admit that I got a bit worried.
I asked Anthony if he thought we should go and buy the lighter grey that we’d seen at B&M but he said I should wait and see how it looked when the room was done.

He was totally right because I absolutely LOVE it!

It always looked messy because there wasn’t enough storage. Only one of the cupboard doors opened which was annoying, especially for me because I can’t bend very well due to having a bad back. I couldn’t reach into the far corner of the side with the fixed door.

Taking the doors off opened up all that storage space and looked so much better.

The paint didn’t cover very well when we first did it. You can’t see it on the photo, but when you go in the bathroom you can clearly see it looks all cracked.

We stripped off the wallpaper and painted the wall directly. It covered much better.

This corner always looked grubby, no matter how many times it was cleaned.

I love it now, it always looks clean!

You can see how this set of shelves got everything dumped on them. I really didn’t like it and was happy to see it gone!

It’s so much easier to get out of the shower without the shelves in the way 🙂

My favourite new addition to the bathroom has to be the shelves Ant built. They’re perfect for our needs 🙂

I love reed and essential oil diffusers. This black reed diffuser was a cheap one from B&M. I bought it because it was black; I don’t usually buy cheap ones because they don’t usually work very well, but this one makes the bathroom smell wonderful.

I know these wall stickers have gone out of favour, but I still love them!
