If you follow this blog or follow me on Instagram then you will notice that I’ve never shown anything of my bathroom, not even the tiniest snippet! There is good reason for this – it is in no way shape or form suitable for public viewing! When we moved in nearly 3 years ago we were slightly put off by the blue/aqua patterned tiles and the subtle attempt to match the paint to these tiles, we were definitely not fans of the lino floor that had seen better days and the shower curtain was eyeing me up the second I walked in the room! But, it was functional and we knew we could do something with it in time, so it didn’t go to the top of the to-do list!
Fast forward two and a half years and a New Years leak in the bathroom which came flooding through to the living room meant that the rather tired looking but functional bathroom was now a disaster zone, we can currently use the toilet and the sink but that is about it (thankfully we have a shower else where!)
Starting the planning process with my B&Q GoodHome bathroom brochure
So the planning had to spring into action pretty rapidly! I was very happy when B&Q got in contact and asked if they could help with the process, it was obviously a resounding yes! I started by taking a look at the B&Q GoodHome bathroom options, they have everything you need to plan your bathroom space, from great space saving modular furniture to fantastically priced baths, showers and accessories, right through to the paint and lighting, they have it all covered!
There are two factors that are really important to us in the planning of our bathroom, firstly, budget, we know that we need to stick to a tight budget and squeeze as much out of that budget as we can and secondly, space, we have very little of it in the bathroom so we need to pack in as much storage as we can, the B&Q GoodHome range ticks both of these things off the list.
Start planning your bathroom with the B&Q Bathroom Planner
I’ve found the layout of the room quite tricky due to the fact it’s so small; do I keep it as it is or is there any possibility to move it around, would the space work any better if I was to re-configure it.
