Bathroom Makeover

On Thursday Cameron's came to measure Nana's bathroom. They suggested a large shower and no bath rather than squeezing in a shower and bath. Nana never uses the bath so she decided a large (1200cm) shower with glass on two sides would be nice. Today I took her to choose her vanity and taps. She's having a mixer tap on the vanity. Out of two, she picked one she'd fancied on the competition day. It has a narrower cupboard but Nana felt would be good to get close to if washing her hair. She is also having a cupboard in the corner, to store towels . They'll also provide towel rails. I mentioned an IXL light/heater and fan. We may have to pay the electrician to fit it. The girl helping us there showed Nana some taps that she loved for the shower.
We then went to National tiles to choose wall and floor tiles. Not a very big range to choose from. Nana found one she liked for the walls and we brought home four samples of floor tiles so we could see them in situ. They are a fawn colour with the floor ones slightly darker than the walls. Leaving them for Auntie Denise to have a say over the weekend. They are also replacing her toilet. Now I need paint samples to check against the tiles.
It's very exciting and everyone so far has been very enthusiastic. Work is to start on 11th October.


  1. OOoh, so exciting!

    I'm going to miss Nana's bath - I used to love visiting Bendigo and getting to have a bath in the "big bath". Now I'll just have to make more use of the spa at yours. ;-)

    Yay! *hugz*

  2. Sounds like a whole lotta fun, picking out bathroom stuff. Can't wait to see "before" and "after". :-)

    We'll be back on Monday or Tuesday, depending upon when I have to head to Melbourne to pick up a laptop and start work.

  3. This is all great to hear. I can't wait to see the finished bathroom when we visit at Christmas
