Working with the builder, we stripped the whole bathroom of everything – above and below the floor. We had to remove the doorframe and the builder built a trolley to manoeuvre the extremely heavy bath onto the landing. It lived there for several weeks whilst all the new plumbing was put into place. Lots of angle grinding, plastering and sawing. A warning to everyone about dust — it gets everywhere, upstairs and down. Would it all be worth it?
We started looking for vintage bathroom tiles to complement both our pink bath and green walls – not an easy task! We decided that black and white Victorian floor tiles would be the perfect finish, embracing simplicity and avoiding excessive embellishments. While harking back to the Victorian era, we felt that the tiles would withstand the test of time and defy fleeting trends, unlike our vinyl flooring!
Thank goodness for Direct Tile Warehouse who offered Regent Victorian Black and White Diamond Pattern Tiles, which achieved our dreams and aspirations. We thought that things couldn’t get better, but they did when we worked out the costings – so much quality for such a reasonable price. The delivery was quick and efficient and the customer service was superlative.
