    Will these be ok for kitchen /diner as well? Also any advice on how I can uplift ceramic tiles - they were laid glued onto the pine boards direct with no underlay and many have broken so now I need to replace the floor. I can’t have new floor laid on top as there’s already a ridge between hallway and kitchen diner as hallway has original stained pine flooring. Thanks for your advice.

    Hi Heather, yes i would say that this engineered wood floor would be suitable for a kitchen diner too, I have used them before in an open planned kitchen.

    With regards to the ceramic tiles, I'm not sure there is an easy to have them removed, they will just have to pulled or smashed off with brute force, fingers crossed you dont have to replace the floorboards underneath too, although hard to tell until they start coming off Im afraid! Good luck with your project. Thanks Vickie

    Hi There, yes a tile spacer was used, Im not 100% sure on what size but I would say in-between 3-5mm. It just keeps a uniformed size for the grout. We used White grout also.

    Cant wait to see the finished result!

    Many Thanks Vickie

    Hi There, the shower tray was just a standard shower tray, it measures 1700mm by 700mm from our local pluming supplier, Im pretty sure it is 25mm depth-wise.

    The flooring is an engineered Oak, in colour Dark Wood Black stained, by Furlong Flooring.

    Many Thanks Vickie

    Hi There, thanks so much for your question.

    So I have used a ladder style shelving unit behind the ( which you can't see ) M&S currently sell one. You could also look at some freestanding units, that way all of the bottles etc are hidden!

    As far sat the mirror, I chose a large Dark wooden frames mirror, but I think a nice Chrome edged circular one could look great also!

    If you check out my website, under the press tab you can see an article on my bathroom and it shows you the mirror and the storage unit, so you may get a better idea.

    I also have some additional images on my Instagram @interior.therapy, so you may get some more ideas.

    Hope this helps

    Many Thanks Vickie

    Exclusive Mirrors

    Hi Julia,

    in terms of a mirror we'd suggest using a hanging round mirror. People are shifting away from traditional bathroom mirrors and looking towards more statement style mirrors. We'd suggest some mirrors like the one's below:

    This mirror is £58.44 here is the link to the website http://bit.ly/1WT8q7U

    This mirror is £246.40 here is the link to the website http://bit.ly/1QKNknz

    These are £67.15 here's a link to the website http://bit.ly/1RmLfy5

    Hope this helps!

    Many thanks.

    Hi There, I feel it is all personal taste, I wanted more wall space because of the amount of artwork we had and wanted to add a contrast against the tiles and as you said personality. I also think wall to ceiling tiles also look great! Nice and clean.

    As far as changing this, tiles can easily be removed but it depends on the state of the wall underneath but is likely to need some plastering to create a flat surface again, which can add time and money to the project, but can be achieved easily.

    I hope this helps

    Many Thanks Vickie

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sarah Alcroft added this to How to Cut the Cost of Your Bathroom Renovation30 January 2019

Ditch the bathThis isn’t for everyone, but if you aren’t one of life’s long soakers, it could be a money-saving option. “We’ve noticed more customers opting for showers rather than baths, and this can not only bring down the initial fitting outlay, but lower running costs long-term due to greater energy efficiency,” Raj says.

Julie Butterworth added this to Inspirational Ideas for Dado and Picture Rails27 July 2018

Tile at half heightIf your bathroom lacks architectural features, try a dado with a run of half-height tiling. These metro tiles, laid brickwork fashion, add a hint of Victoriana with a modern edge. Go for contrasting grout for added impact.Continue around the room to create a splashback behind the basin, then take them to full height in a shower or around a bath.

Cheryl Freedman added this to Should I Get Rid of My Bath?25 February 2018

…or opt for vintageDitching your bath doesn’t automatically mean you have to go for a minimalist wetroom. This traditional bathroom has a standalone shower enclosure with a low tray and classic fittings. The space does heritage style beautifully, with grey metro tiles and a pedestal basin. So if you’re not bothered about a bath but love your period fittings, take inspiration.What do I need to know when choosing a shower enclosure?
