Do you remember my first mention of our ensuite renovation plans? It was way back in November last year. Well slowly but surely we have progress… Slowly because Marc is doing 99% of it himself and life… well life is very busy for this man. I have to book an appointment with him in advance! As usual I know exactly what I want, we just have to work out the cheapest way to buy, make or restore it!
The ergonomics of such a small space has taken a lot of brainpower.
Ensuite Renovation Update:
Whilst I have added to my pile of ‘ideas and inspo cuttings’ Marc has been working hard (whenever he gets the chance) So far it looks a little like this…
Marc has now completely dismantled and removed everything. The tiles, pipes, plasterboard and shower tray, sink and toilet. Hurrah so now its stripped bare he is carefully putting it all back together…
The ongoing ‘to do’ list:
- Buy, cut and install moisture resistant plaster boards: TICK
- Order new white shower tray and plumbing pipes: TICK
- Install new shower tray and fit pipes into new position: TICK
- Choose new shower fitting…ONGOING

Ensuite Renovation Colours.
In keeping with the dark grey of our bedroom, we are staying with grey and white, it would be mad not too I like a house to flow, not to have different colours/styles in every room. I am loving the style, colours and the vibe of this tile below…
Wish us luck and come back at Christmas as I’ve requested that it be finished by then!
