    wet room

    Work started today
    Already not enjoying the upheaval
    Sure it will be worth it though
    Can't wait to have a lovely shower
    Have been given a choice of floor colour
    Gone for a deep pink
    The tiles are white,with a pretty pink and gold border
    Or they will be

    Still waiting for any sign of mine starting, no problem said the nice man who came out, funding is sorted just need to have a quick measure up and off we go .....

    That was 3 weeks ago

    Not surprised to be honest, this has been dragging on for about a year now.

    My initial call was last June
    Along the way i was told three times that start to finish is usually around a year
    All told mine was one year,one month till start,and will be two weeks to finish
    Sounds like you are nearly there now

    I hope all goes well my wet room was finished in four days it all went smoothly.
    Unfortunately my second adaptation is not going so well.I have been waiting over 2 months for a clos-a-mat to be installed the suppliers/installers are useless from the start of the grant application to now has been 17 months.

    The nearest I've come to getting a wet room shower was being told to open the bathroom window when it's raining outside !!!

    They aren't cheap if self funding. I had a quote 12 months ago and I didn't commission the work - it will now cost 15% more due to BREXIC and falling pound!

    Am delighted with my new wet room
    My son likes it too
    The only slight issue is the gloss paint,although white when done,has gone a horrible yellow already.
    This is because the bathroom has no window,and you shouldn't use iloil based gloss in a room with little or no daylight
    I couldn't afford to buy my own tiles,so have the white ones offered,but they broke it up with a mosaic border in pink/mauve/ gold
    I chose a pink floor and treated myself to a pink glitter toilet seat
    I have tarted it up with pink bits and prices
    The shower has very simple controls and works like a dream
    I will try to upload a photo
    When the man broke bits of mosaic border,he just dropped them on the floor,so I collected them and stuck them round my mirror,making a matching frame
