Renew the loo!
Having a separate loo is convenient, but they tend to be quite tiny rooms. So we thought, "why not bling it up a bit!"
The toilet was old-fashioned and the boring painted plasterboard walls needed warmth, so we added additional features to give the room a bit of warmth and personality.
Here's what we did:
-Replaced the loo with a clever loo which has a sink attached to the tank, so you can wash your hands and that water is recycled into the tank and used at the next flush.
-Created a tiled feature wall behind the toilet.
-Decorated the walls with grass cloth wallpaper, which adds texture and warmth.
-Added a shelf to hold ethnic statues.
-Saved money by buying old picture frames from an op shop, spray painted them all matte black ro match, and framed 1800's prints with images of Kandy bought on holiday in Sri Lanka.
-Instead of a bare light bulb, we added a shade that has a metallic inside and crystals hanging for a nice touch of bling.
