Bathrooms. They excite me far more than other rooms in the house. Maybe it's because my bathrooms have always been so tiny, they've seemed easier to achieve. I've been looking forward to sharing photos our new ensuite, and I'm sure my husband is too, as I've been making us both shower downstairs until I finished taking these photos!

Unsurprisingly, we went for a monochrome scheme - it was just easier that way to keep it looking chic and expensive looking. The white tiles were pretty much the cheapest ones available at Topps Tiles - but we went with square rather than Metro tiles for a change and the grey grout keeps it modern looking (and easier to keep clean!). H&M Home sufficed for most of the interiors.

Bathroom shopping was difficult, as I was suddenly in a field I had no knowledge on - was it a rip off, was this shop naff? I basically came to accept that all bathroom shops are the same - there really isn't much between them in regards to stock, pricing etc. After deciding Burlington sinks were just too pricey for what possibly won't be our 'forever' home, it really was a case of just picking one that did the job and didn't look too cheap - and was small enough not to get in the way.

The basic style of our bathroom was based on Cowshed, with a bit of The Hoxton Hotel, Holborn, thrown in (how middle class of me!). We were lucky to have a friend help us with the tiling, as that saved a huge amount of costs. Pinterest, was of course, a huge inspiration (see my 'Dream Bathroom' board here).

I am really liking the mix of patterns and shape tiles that are going on, now. And I just love opening the door into my little tiled haven...even more so that I'll actually be able to shower in it now this post is up!
