Starting the bathroom

At the weekend we finally began to fit the bathroom – something we’ve both been looking forward to for a long time.

We bought most of it online from Victoria Plumb as it’s much cheaper than buying in-store and there’s a great choice too. We opted for his and hers sinks, with two counter-top bowls and simple taps that come out of the wall. The counter-top sinks will stand on top of a white bathroom cabinet that we bought from Ikea, topped with a chunky oak work surface.

In order to fit this style of tap, we had to create a box-like structure to cover the pipework (see photos below). Once finished we’ll tile over the top to give a splash-proof finish.
