How Bryony did it
‘Our bathroom hadn’t been touched in 40 years. The layout didn’t work – everything felt boxed in and the separate loo next door wasn’t practical. We lowered the floor by a foot to open up the room and add more height, which has completely transformed the space. I was very budget-conscious when it came to choosing fixtures and fittings, and scoured ebay for affordable pieces that matched my vision.
The freestanding bath was a steal at £380. I updated it using paint to make it the focal point of the scheme. These savings meant
I was able to splash out on beautiful statement fish scale tiles. The project took around 12 weeks and labour cost £3,000. This new design makes better use of the space. I’m thrilled with how the elements have come together. Now the room feels truly bespoke.’
