I finally have a new bathroom, and it didn't take long...
I wanted to change it about 6 years ago,
I started to look for the pieces and buy the things back in June,
7 days of hard work, strangers in my house, dust and mess,
Not much money left in the back account
After paying a huge bill I still have to paint the walls myself...
BUT I have the so much wanted NEW BATHROOM. The problem is that I don't want to use it, I keep looking at it, cleaning it, polishing the bloody slate, and simply admiring where all my money has gone...still have an issue with the water pressure (boiler will be changed when more money come my way), but of course Missi doesn't seem to have any problems testing the waters. He was the first one to jump in, well I assume it was him, because I didn't see him and because those are clearly not my footprints.
Jokes apart, I am truly happy with it, I had my first hot bath and almost cried haha...would I choose slate again?? ummm not sure, I will tell you in a few years, you have to get a very experienced fitter to fit the stones without breaking the edges, (mine were good but still managed to crack some of it). Would I have spot lights? YES but you still need some stronger lighting near the mirror area. White tiles, yes and yes, I like the clean and fresh look, a bit dark? don't think so, feels clean and smart. Final conclusion, it is worth the money, waiting time, and hard work, now I will save to do the Kitchen, maybe in 2025?
