Before + After - Loft bathroom update
Updated: Nov 12, 2020
The bathroom was looking a little too neutral and I wanted to inject a little more colour. We converted the loft in 2017 and added this bathroom space (See pics of the work in progress). The idea is that if our twin girls would like their own bedrooms they can move up here.
The bathroom space was quite awkward because of the sloping ceiling so it limited the choice of layout. We placed the shower in the corner and included a hole with a ledge for toiletries. We added a toilet unit from Burlington bathrooms and the double basin from Roper Rhodes. The decorative floor tiles are from Laura Ashley. We placed a Velux window above the toilet for added head height and the windows open outwards without jutting into the space.
I am a big fan of white and neutrals but this space just felt a little cold and I wanted to add some colour. I decided on a nice dusty pink and after a few samples I decided to go for Plaster pink by M&L Paints
I tend to paint card rather than directly onto the wall for two reasons. It allows you to move the colour swatch around the room and see how it looks in different corners. It's also easier than painting over it. Especially if you are trying out darker colours. It also means you have a ready made swatch if you'd like to see how the colour works in other rooms!
The white mirrors originally were a bit too small and I wanted to add gold to compliment the pink. I found these beautiful mirrors on Melody Maison. They have a curve which fits perfectly with the sloping ceiling.
I wanted storage for the towels and washing. I found these great laundry hampers from Vonhaus which fit the space perfectly. I added two small wall shelves from Flying Tiger to add interest they can hold little accessories such as candles, dried flowers and smellies!
Here is the end result. I found the vintage style circular bath mat in Dunelm. I added a large plant from Ikea and some pretty vintage bottles I found in an antiques shop. Let me know what you think!
