This is what my bathroom/bedroom looks like right now. That's real life, folks. Real, messy life.
We've been slowly remodeling our Master bathroom over the past couple months. Yay! I wasn't being a good blogger when we started this project, so I don't have an excellent before picture, but I did scrape up this realtor photo from when we bought the house:
Yes, ladies and gents, that's carpet in the bathroom. Why, oh, why do they do this? Next to the bath tub? Why?! So, nearly four years later the carpet (and the lovely linoleum in the WC) are no more.
(You may notice that the cabinets are looking a bit different from that before photo too. I'll have to do a post on that project soon.)
We chose a white porcelain penny tile for the bathroom floors. I have always loved that kind of tile. It is definitely a bit retro, but I think it's a classic too. The tile comes attached to a mesh backing in 12x12 sheets, like so:
One of the great things about this tile (in my opinion) is that you don't need a tile saw to cut it. These are the only tools we've been using to lay the tile:
Scissors and tile nippers. The scissors cut the mesh, and when we need a half or quarter tile, we use the nippers. It's a bit tedious, perhaps, but definitely easy.
So far we have put down the adhesive and the tile. Here's what it looks like pre-grout:
