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.’
