Master Bedroom En Suite makeover
Welcome, here I continue to share the renovation of our barn conversion. I’d intended to start blogging about our renovation sooner but things have been so busy here I’m playing catch up, I hope you enjoy what I share of our renovation journey and find some inspiration along the way.
Some of you will know that a little over a year ago we moved into our barn conversion mews, which was previously owned by an elderly lady, we had our hands full, pastel carpets, floral window dressings, dark beams, ancient radiators and poor lighting being some of the obstacles. We saved the renovation of our master bedroom and en suite until last, our tiny en suite bathroom was complete with beige suite, carpet, floral tiles and an electric shower. By the time we’d been living here for a year I had a very clear idea of how I wanted the bathroom to look. I wanted it to have a boutique feel to it with a vintage vibe. Every time I found an image I loved on Pinterest the common denominators were white tiles, vintage rug, greenery and a cabinet mounted basin.
Once I’d found inspiration and pulled the moodboard together the hunt was on for simple fixtures and fittings, I found these at Bathroom Takeaway. Due to the size of the room we weren’t able to move the fixtures too much and could only accommodate a slightly larger shower enclosure, I chose their 760 x 100 shower enclosure with sliding door, which was a space saver for this tiny bathroom. I’d picked up a vintage cupboard at auction some months earlier, Bathroom Takeaway’s counter top basin was luckily the perfect size, I picked their mono basin mixer to complete the look. Their traditional style Abbey toilet and Salzburg Towel Rail Radiator perfectly complemented the scheme.
Bathroom flooring came from Karndean and was fitted by local company East Riding Floors, Carrara marble look tiles completed the scheme and were sourced from a local supplier. You can find links to the exact products we used below:
I wanted to keep the colour palette simple, Vintro Paints Yorkshire Stone for the walls and the woodwork and Fusion Minerals paint in Ash for the basin cupboard, the neutral tones of the dark floor and white marble effect tiles perfectly complemented these colour choices.
We were very restricted with our lighting choices owing to the sloping ceiling, I chose ceiling spot lights to keep the scheme simple. I enjoy lighting candles in the evening for a lovely relaxed vibe.
As with the bedroom flooring we fitted Karndean Hickory Peppercorn LVT. I chose this for it’s non slip and waterproof properties as well as it’s beautiful warm tones and traditional look, expertly fitted by East Riding Floors.
I found a vintage circular mirror in a charity shop and sprayed the frame black, I’m really pleased with how this looks, I added greenery, both real and faux. A vintage wooden laundry bin was covered in vintage snakeskin wallpaper and a quirky shoe last toilet roll holder is a fun element. I wanted to add some vintage inspired art, which I sourced from Desenio. I found a bath mat at H and M Home which looks like the ones on the Pinterest images I’d been pinning. Shells I’ve had for years and vintage glass jars containing sponges add interest.
I got a number of quotes for the work, these ranged from £750 to £2500, lesson learnt – always get more than one quote! We used a local chap who was fantastic, a real problem solver, super tidy and completed the job on time and in budget.
