Bathroom Inspiration & Our Wet Room Bathroom

Ceridwen's Cauldron Bath Melt by Lush

It was going to be one of the last rooms on our list to renovate, but last week our shower started playing up and it looks like we’re going to need to rip out our wet room bathroom sooner than we thought!

When we first moved in, the bathroom was very clearly the most recently fitted and decorated room in the house. I wasn’t a huge fan of the wet room bathroom design and as time has gone on the room just look shabbier and dirtier. The floor that has been fitted has a very rough texture, presumably to avoid any slips on the floor, but it makes the room so hard to clean and stains really easily as well – so now the floor is kind of pink from my hair dye – oops!

Having said that, I can definitely see the appeal of having a wet room – even though I’m only 30 years old I struggle a lot around the house due to an ongoing issue with a weak muscle in my back. I have to avoid bending and leaning over as my back isn’t strong enough to maintain that position – causing problems if I ever drop something on the floor… which is a lot!!
With a wet room I never have to worry about stepping over a shower tray or getting laid down in a bath and not being able to get out… but I do miss having a bath so much!

When Premier Bathrooms asked me to share their walk in baths and shower prices with you I spotted an answer to all my problems – a mini walk in bath! I was always a shower person until recently, but I discovered the amazing healing powers of a bath through a series of Lush bath product reviews and now I’m distraught without one. Not only do they help you relax your mind, but the heat and relaxation is great for my back muscles too.

Unfortunately our bathroom is too small to accommodate a full size bath, but these walk in baths come in all different shapes and sizes which is perfect for tiny bathrooms and the little door means I don’t have to struggle to get in and out on my own – there’s little more embarrassing than being 30 years old and needing help to get out of the bath when you’re wet and naked!!

So suddenly I’m excited about the idea of renovating our bathroom sooner than expected and maybe I will consider another wet room bathroom after all – as long as I can choose the style of floor myself! Here are some ideas I’ve got floating around my head for our new bathroom renovation:

Garden Inspiration and LED Hut Spotlight Review

LED Hut Spotlight

Spring has sprung and it’s time we started thinking about our garden landscaping and decor ready for the Summer months. I’ve wanted a fun, colourful outdoor space for as long as I can remember and it always bothered me that in our old rented house we just had concrete, concrete and more concrete outside. Now we have two whole gardens to play with and I’m excited to get to work!

It can be very dark on our street when you’re getting home later at night so when the LED Hut asked me if I wanted to try one of their outside lights I thought it was perfect timing! Our front garden is mostly neat and tidy with a small lawn and some shrubbery so adding an outside light is almost all the work we need to do on the space.

Mr Beams LED Spotlight

The Mr Beams LED spotlight from LED Hut is a lot bigger than I was expecting, with the light itself (minus the fixture) being about the size of a mug of tea. It really does beam out a lot of light too and works solely when it detects motion – there is no on or off switch.

Colour wise it is stated as brown, but it looks pretty much black to me – it’s quite subtle compared to the light that was installed outside by the previous owners of our house, so it looks so much nicer outside by the front door now than it used to!

It’s really easy to fix the light to the wall and comes with a set of wall plugs and screws for fitting. You need to drill three small holes in your outside wall to properly secure the light as it is quite heavy with the batteries inside.

I do think three chunky D batteries seems a tad excessive for the light, but I’m hoping they last a long time to make it worth it. I haven’t been using the light long enough to comment on battery usage unfortunately, but I will report back in a couple of weeks. I do like that the light doesn’t need to be wired into your electrical supply though, making it super easy to install.

The back garden is a bit of an insane jungle at the moment, so it will be a while before we’re ready to add lights and accessories out there, but here is my garden inspiration board from Pinterest to give you a little bit of an idea of the sort of look we’re going for.

I think the LED Hut spotlight its a great piece of equipment for such a low price and when our back garden is up to scratch and usable I think I’ll be getting another one for out there too!
