It’s time to zhush the bathroom.

Yes we are ready to zhush the bathroom.  Below is a photo of what it looked like when the house was a rental.

It’s kind of hard to see but there are white subway tiles in the shower, over the bath and behind the basin and toilet (not shown in photo). We’re guessing that this was done anywhere from five to ten years ago.  Overall they’re not in a bad state and we like subway tiles and plan on using them in the new bathrooms and as a splashback behind the oven in the kitchen.

The bath is scratched up and there are a few rust stains too.

The idea is … to get a few quotes to see how much it will cost to get the bath and the tiles resurfaced. Or  just rip the whole lot out and start again.  I’ve been looking at a few websites and it looks like it’s going to cost $500 to get the bath done alone and I know you can pick up a new bath from our local hardware for $100.  So we’ve got someone coming over to give us a quote on Friday… To be continued….

Last year I picked up a bargain with this basin.  It was the shop display and the style was being discontinued.  It came with the taps and a bargain at $199.00

I’ve also ordered  some new tiles for the floor from  Elite Bathware & Tiles, East Brisbane.  They are Vietnamese and are made from cement.

They weren’t cheap but we only needed 3.36sqm!!

We’ve been trying to find a toilet that is similar to the pedestal sink and today I found one at Bathroom Warehouse in Coorparoo, Yay!!! and $200 cheaper than the toilet I was going to order yesterday.

I like the idea of painting the walls a dark grey too.
