Great transformation, but having gone so far I would had a suspended toilet and a bidet rather than such a large cabinet, which I would also have had suspended - gives a wonderful sense of 'floating' and makes it easier to clean the floor.

Hello ybrough desperate from Southport! Painted surfaces are perfectly OK in a bathroom - we only tiled the shower cubicle. Can ironically be more expensive as the wall finish needs to be perfect - you can be less fussy if you're tiling. It won't look sterile with the carrara tiles, and you could add some bling with towel rails etc to flash the light around.

Thanks Noreen. I am slowly warming up to the idea. We have a whole flat to detonate. Lounge and 2nd bedroom nearly finished, kitchen next. We absolutely love the architectural details of our Victorian home, having lived in new builds all of our lives. Challenging, but such a blank canvas when having to start from the ceiling and.down. It is being subjec to a panelled ceiling at present and is very much a work in progress. Kitchen units have been sitting in boxes since December, so we are looking at quite a few months to reach floor level. We will though and probably die doing so. I have never had so much fun.
