Tiles are nearly done


The black tiles are virtually done. Wall to wall, top to bottom, and yup, it looks dramatic. Next step is to do the tricky edging and then fill in the gaps with grey grout. Annoyingly the kids are so petite that they'll probably need their little Ikea plastic step to reach the tap on the sink for the next few years. That ubiquitious bit of blue plastic will spoil the boutique wetroom effect somewhat but hey ho.


Here's my little alcove for housing shower gel and shampoo: it's narrower than I would've liked so the jumbo Aesop bottles won't fit. Sorry house guests, you'll be slumming it with supermarket brands who offer products in tall & thin bottles. The builders had to smash the alcove into concrete so it took ages, but it's worth it...
