Project managed bathroom, en suite & downstairs loo installations

En Suite Wetroom Conversion, Menston

This article shows how ukbathroomguru modernised a wetroom in Menston, Leeds.

 

Introduction

This is a case study which shows how we can carry out a bathroom renovation from start to finish:

  1. Free site survey to assess feasibility of plans
  2. Free itemised, written quotation (& plans if needed)
  3. Complete installation, which consisted of the following trades in this instance:
  • building work – taking down a chimney breast to make the far wall flat
  • joinery – for building new dwarf stud walls to conceal waste pipework & to make the bath fit snugly
  • plastering
  • painting
  • plumbing
  • wall & floor tiling
  • electrics (lighting, underfloor heating & extractor fan in this example)

Essentially, everything you need from start to finish, all starting with a free site survey

 

Case study

Before

The en suite was nice but poor design (in terms of tile choice, grout colour, ventilation and heating design) had meant that it had not aged very well.

Consequently it needed replacing.

We planned to open up the room and replace the wet area with a shower enclosure.

We replace the large clunky basin unit with a neat freestanding vanity unit for storage.

We replaced the toilet with a new model and added a nice chrome towel radiator at the oposite side of the en suite to suit the new layout.

 

We tiled the floor with wood effect porcelain tiles – all the benefits of the wood aesthetic with the practicalities of tile (with underfloor heating to make sure they were never cold underfoot!)

We utilised the old recess for some concealed storage – a custom made mirror fronted unit with glass shelves.

A large quadrant shower enclosure was added into the corner once the doorway had been moved back to open up the space.

Here you can see that the glass door to the en suite has been relocated into newly formed studwork to open up the room.

 

Glass doors are great for letting in light but privacy needs to be considered on a case by case basis!
