bathroom before

First off, I admit our bathroom doesn’t look THAT bad.

We’re lucky it doesn’t sport the original brown 70s tiling like most of our neighbouring units. But its not-completely-offensive appearance belies the questionable style choices and incredibly shoddy workmanship of the previous owner’s “improvements”.

So here is an up close and personal look at all of the things I hate about our bathroom.

There’s nothing wrong with the vanity, although I never would have paired those contemporary handles with the traditional tap set, which is a different style again to the toilet roll holder.

And there is no place for an industrial fluoro tube light (even one that isn’t missing a cover) in a residential home. Ever.

Our sole attempt to improve the bathroom over the last five years was the addition of a glass shelf in the shower… which broke. (Thanks Ikea, it was a genius idea to use tiny plastic brackets to hold a glass shelf.)

Let’s be honest: you’re not fooling anyone with the ‘marble’ tiles.

Classy, right? (And I’m not even talking about my nanna dressing gown.)

This is not just deterioration. Someone actually went to the bother of repainting the room and didn’t think it worthwhile to fill in the (many) gaping holes first.

This is the EXTERIOR paint colour. How a massive glob of it wound up on the bathroom doorframe in the first place is beyond me, let alone why no one fixed it.

Now you can see why I’m so excited to finally be overhauling this room!
