‘Super relieved’: DIY grandad helps granddaughter save £5,000 on bathroom transformation


Rachel Green, who shares her DIY tips on Instagram at @number14_renovations, told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: “I get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram. I also browse through some home magazines but I generally pick out bits I like from lots of different places and think about how they can all work together.

Renovating the bathroom meant that the couple were also able to change the layout of it, to help with space.

The materials used such as grout, adhesive, boarding for the floor and tile spaces were all from a local tile shop or B&Q.

Rachel’s 80-year-old grandad stepped in to help her create her dream bathroom, providing all the tools to do the job.

Rachel explained: “My grandad, even though he is 80-years-old, did basically the whole bathroom himself with a little help from us.

The couple are over the moon with the gorgeous new bathroom, and have shared lots of tips for those wanting to recreate it at home.

Rachel went on: “We are super relieved now it’s done. It’s taken us a long time to get it right – nothing is ever straightforward.

“We were lucky enough to have a wet room downstairs that we used while the renovation took place, so the time pressure to get it done was a bit more leisurely.”

The only things left to do in the bathroom are for Rachel to pick out new towels and items such as plants and storage.

The homeowner explained that the cost of a small bathroom being done by a professional would have set her back anything between £5,000 to £7,000.

She said: “The total cost for everything in our bathrooms was under £2,500. Our whole house needs renovating so being able to do anything and everything on a budget is crucial!”

Rachel recommends scouring the internet for bargains.

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, commented: “It’s no surprise that getting builders in to renovate your home can cost thousands and thousands of pounds.

“If you’ve never so much painted a wall before, you might be nervous about trying such a big project on your own.

“But Rachel, Ben and Michael have proved that by combining forces and skills, you can work as a team and achieve massive goals together.”
