Showing off the new Shower

Well of course this isn't it. This is the new front door with an angled shot of the new "french windows" and then the new shed door. It's all a bit plain at the moment but the Virginia Creeper will grow as will the Climbing Rose to the left of the front door. The Wisteria to the right of the front door is doing well and we will soon be covered with vegetation again. These are porcelain tiles....not real marble!

If you look carefully you can see that the tiler has cut us a hole in the wall at about shoulder height and lined it with the same mosaics that have been used for the shower floor area.

The toilet area has been fitted with a shattaf and grab rail as has the shower area.

I managed to buy a heated towel rail on ebay for £40 and the ride up to Gosforth was certainly worth it.

I shall go out tomorrow and buy some towels and bottles of stuff to match....Wouldn't you?

Cheers Gillian

Your new bathroom is beautiful! i want one just like it... even though I've never even heard of a towel warmer and can't fathom what a Shatwhuzzit is.

Sounded rude to me........and once I had Googled it - it still sounds rude, but fun!!

We discovered shattafs during a holiday in Tunisia but they were only cold water ones. These are sold here for warm water needs for our cold bums. There is a mixer like in showers so you can get it to the right temperature and then squirt at the desired areas!!!
Cheers Gillian

Yes, I would go buy towels and lovely spicy soaps. Isn't it lovely when thngs are fresh and new?

I remember you mentioning the jacsi-washing kazoo before. I still don't think it's made it up here yet!

Your new shower is beautiful! I’m in love with the idea of using marble for your shower walls. I think it’s a very creative interior design idea considering marble is mostly used for kitchen countertops. The natural beauty of marble just strikes me as beautiful wherever part of the house they may be found.
