Big ‘High 5’ to Monday (or that’s what I’m telling myself anyway)! Today I’m getting fully getting back in the swing of things after having the most amazing 5 weeks or so off to, you know, get hitched, honeymoon and take our little ones on a family holiday down in Somerset. The usual. 😉 As much as I’ve had the best time, there’s also something about getting back into a bit of a ‘normal’ routine that is comforting. Does that make me a saddo? Probably, but I care not!
What has also been taking up a great deal of time and energy too over the past few months is having our new loft conversion built. Well, it is now officially finished from a building and decoration point of view, but whilst we can move up there in the interim whilst Sasha’s new room is decorated, we can’t get fully settled as our carpets and bathroom flooring aren’t coming until the end of August/beginning of September *waaaah* Which is frustrating but not the end of the world.
In the meantime, I’ve still been able to source some great accessories for our new room, and I’ve also been on the hunt for the perfect bathroom mirror for our en-suite bathroom, which leads me to this post.
Our new bathroom is floor-to-ceiling subway tiles and dark grey grout (similar to our big family bathroom), with a walk-in shower, sink and vanity unit, wall radiator and of course, the loo. I’d been looking for statement bathroom mirrors that would add interest to what is an otherwise small space, and here is what I found…
1. Restoration Rectangular Bathroom Wall Mirror – John Lewis – £60
2. Miller Stockholm Extending Shaving Mirror – John Lewis – £155
3. Round Hanging Mirror – John Lewis – £60
4. Mosaic Round Bathroom Mirror – Homebase – £14.99
5. Hanging Heart Mirror – Marks and Spencer – £19.50
6. Copper Pedestal Mirror – Marks and Spencer – £29.50
7. Porthole Mirrors (Various sizes available) – Graham and Green – £59 – £160
8. Carriage Mirrors – Graham and Green – £41.25 – £150
So, what did we go for in the end?
Well, we went for the John Lewis Round Hanging Mirror, with leather strap, using some of the vouchers we were kindly given on our wedding day.
Having seen it out of the box I can confirm that it looks fab, and of decent quality. My only concern is that it’s much heavier than I anticipated, and my Father-in-law AKA Chief DIYer is worried that it may be tricky to drill through and secure on our bathroom tiles (it needs special bolts and we don’t want to crack any tiles).
Watch this space to see whether or not we actually get it up!
