Our Bathroom - Then & Now

So for my mini-series following the transformation of our flat since receiving some old photos of how it looked before being transformed by a lovely Spanish family in 2001, the next up is the bathroom...

When they moved in, circa 2001

When Sarah lived there, circa 2008
And when we first moved in...


We added a large mirror and shelf above the bath for lots of candles...


Complete with dragonfly wall art!  (Long before any talk of weddings!)
Before deciding to re-do it all completely in 2010...

Specific things we wanted included a deep bath (I hate having to choose between feet, knees or chest being cold!), a rain shower but with separate removable spray shower head, porcelain tiles, down lighters, built in shelf behind the sink (with hidden cistern), a sliding & swivelling shower door (so it can be pushed in to make the bathroom seem bigger but pushed out when in the bath so you don't feel claustrophobic), built in 'wine shelf' by the bath!












Built in wine/book shelf at the end of the bath in the beautiful border pattern tiles
The finished product (before the cabinet was put up as the company messed up our order)...





I did initially have these pictures up in a frame but gave them to my Mum when I replaced them with a special canvas (see below).




 And now...

Lovely bathroom, really pretty details and touches :-) Can I ask where you got your shower screen please? I've been looking for one just like it!

Your bathroom is neither spacious nor small, and that’s what I love about it! I always think that a not-so-spacey-but-not-too-small bathroom will make a functional one. And hey, kudos for the neatness of that room! =)

I agree with the comment above. Big bathrooms need a lot of maintenance, but small ones are too claustrophobic. The best option is a bathroom like yours, with good bathroom products and furniture.
