By and large, we are planning to leave the bathrooms intact. The tiles don’t look particularly good or attractive, but they’ll do unless whatever we’re planning requires extensive hacking, in which case we’ll probably have to re-tile all the bathrooms.
Great for getting our own look, not so hot on the added and substantial expense.
Will try to replace the basin with something more modern, with or without the cabinetry. Wonder though if the basin can simply be removed and replaced without hacking of tiles.
Then there’s the issue of hot water. Planning to get storage heater/s for almost all water outlets (yup, including the kitchen). Considering that all water pipes have already been concealed, totally unsure if this can be easily done, again without hacking of tiles and walls. Need to check with the contractor again, with whom I am currently arranging a meet-up at our place, hopefully really soon.
