Quite Interesting Bathroom Fact no1
My bathroom is incredibly boring! It was like this when we moved in twenty months ago, and I’ve still not got around to doing anything with it.
The walls are magnolia. The floor is blue. The bath, toilet, shower, tiles and radiator are white. The shower curtain was white, but it got grubby so I bought a new one, white with butterflies.
I have no storage space at all, well, apart from that manky bathroom cabinet with the broken mirror. (did I hear you gasp 7 years bad luck!)
My bathroom needs a makeover and that is a fact!
Quite Interesting Bathroom Fact no2
The average person spends three years of their life on the toilet!
Now, don’t you think if you are going to spend that much time in this little room then it should be a pleasant place to be? I would like my bathroom to be clean and bright and welcoming. A little colour would be nice instead of all the boring white. How about some gorgeous brightly coloured wall tiles.

One theory for what causes wrinkly skin after a bath is that the outermost layer of skin, the stratum corneum, (literally “horned layer”) contains dead keratin cells which absorb water. This makes the surface of the skin swell but not the lower layers, so the surface is forced to pucker as a result.
So, don’t spend too much time in the water! I love having a shower, but it’s also really nice to have a relaxing bath. A nice bathroom would encourage me to spend more time in the bath and to be honest, I don’t really care about wrinkles that fade away…if only all wrinkles would do that!
My kids prefer to bathe too and won’t get out until they get wrinkly.
My dream bathtub would be free standing in a lovely light and airy room.

The toilet seat is not the dirties thing in the bathroom! The floor is dirtier, and there are more germs in the sink and on the taps and door handles than on the toilet seat. Makes you think doesn’t it!
Although, I’d have to argue about my toilet floor. It’s really not a nice surface and it shows every little mark and stain so I’m always mopping it. I’d love some really nice floor tiles instead.
When I see wood in a bathroom it makes me think of a spa, just give me a sauna and a jacuzzi as well, bliss.

You can save 2190 gallons of water per person a year by only flushing the toilet once a day!
But imagine how much air freshener you would have to use!!
And Finally, here’s another interesting bathroom fact. The Big Bathroom Shop and Tile Mountain are holding a competition with £5000 worth of bathroom prizes up for grabs. It could be just what my boring bathroom is looking for! So I’ve set up a Pinterest Board showing my top picks from the two sites which would make up my Dream Bathroom and this post is my entry into the competition. Fingers crossed x
