Imagine the shower scene in Psycho, you creep up, pull back the shower curtain and Scream! Aaarrrrgggggggggggghhhhh! This is what we do everyday! Our bathroom is the very stuff of nightmares! Since moving in 5 years ago redoing the bathroom is daunting just because of the horrors we have discovered!
On first glance you are greeted by some 1980s bold black, white and pink combo with matching decaying grout. An oversized broken jacuzzi bath dominates the floor space, this is offset by a slowly dying toilet and a vanity sink and cupboard that has delusions of grandure. We have a light in the cupboard that competes for electrical supply with the main bathroom light, we had to disconnect that and in retaliation the cupboard no longer shuts! We have an odd flaky gold towel rail offset by a radiator that does not know if it is a towel warmer or the drummer from a heavy metal rock band, either way it's performance leaves you Luke warm.
As alluded to earlier, the electrics in our bathroom were a mess and whilst now compliant we have holes all over our ceiling from previous owners 'improvements'
However the piece de resistance is our ceiling. It is really something special and quite a feature!
Due to a previous owner blocking up the ventilation system we have a decaying ceiling, this is hampered by the false ceiling that we have only recently discovered. The plaster is full of mildew and decaying quickly. Plaster is flaking off the ceiling and is an eyesore.
I think our bathroom has given up hope of ever feeling loved (it definitely knows we are avoiding it!)
