I enter my bathroom and despair

My
bathroom is my least favourite room in the house, the spiders that live in the
far distant corners (we have very high ceilings!) seem happy enough but for me
it’s not the practical family bathroom I crave. Once
upon a time our house was a residential building and with it came all the
trappings of the type of business it was. The
bathroom was kitted out with a shower seat, disabled railings and enough space
to swing a wheelchair. The only concession we have made to updating the room
is removing the lock on the temperature, which stopped the shower being more
than lukewarm (I love scorching hot showers!) and getting rid of the railings
but leaving the gaping holes, really we should have re-tiled but until we find
the bathroom suite we want we have not spent anymore. I have
been browsing on clickbasin to get some inspiration and plan ahead; their end of
summer sale caught my eye.

I need to get a proper shower cubicle as at the
moment it’s an open shower area that means the boys walk wet feet everywhere;
the water is not contained at all and flows everywhere!!!

The
bath is missing its side panel, not sure how we managed to lose it, it was
definitely there when we bought the house but perhaps we were over enthusiastic
tidying up and managed to chuck it in the skip…

Without the panel its turned into a spider retreat sanctuary!!!

So we need to give the room a complete
overhaul! My most favourite bit will be getting rid of the
anti-slip flooring (which is not particularly efficient at being anti-slip
seeing as boys my boys have gone flying anyway!) as much as you steam mop it
never looks clean. I want something that will shine and look fresh; it’s
so tired and unloved our bathroom!!! A bath
is still relaxing but you have to keep blinkers on your eyes so you do not see
the rest of the room, I try and sink as deep into the bubbles as I can and
forget all the work that needs to be completed.

Even
our radiator is a complete eye sore as it’s been put in back to front by the
looks of it… I long for a stylish space that is modern and functional. I
guess I should count my blessings on the plus side least the bathroom suite is
white, in our old house it was avocado green for quite some time. But
in the New Year we will still be ripping out this bathroom and starting
again!!! Bathrooms apparently
are one of the rooms people really look at when buying a house, so not sure
what we were thinking of as we seemed to have ignored the state of this one
when we bought the house…
