Mairi’s bathroom

My dear friend and colleague, journalist Mairi MacDonald, is in the throes of a bathroom re-design, she has some requirements and restrictions:

Her home is Victorian, so she wants a style that will complement it

Bath by Drummonds in a Victorian shooting lodge

The bath needs to be generous: 1800mm long bath, by request of her quite grown up children (21, 19 and 16)
Due to space restriction, she needs a shower over the bath, there is not room for a shower cubicle.
A WC that is easy to keep clean.
She wonders whether paneling would look smart?

The bath and shower area has to be watertight though.

She needs storage – a vanity unit? This is a real beauty…

She wants a mirror above the basin…a mirrored cabinet is an obvious choice + light…Love the shutters – a great choice for a bathroom….light AND privacy…

She has the inspired idea of wanting to charge electric toothbrushes in a cupboard – brilliant!!

She very sweetly asked if I would help her. ‘No problem’ I said – let’s set up a joint Pinterest board! Do have a look…

Love Pinterest, I warn you it is addictive, but incredibly useful if you are looking for inspiration and ideas for your home. Please follow me, it will encourage me to pin cool stuff!
