This article shows how ukbathroomguru modernised a bathroom 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 bathroom was nice but wanted updating, with a more suitable (waterproof) floor finish preferred.

 

During

After the old bathroom was removed and all the tiles were stripped back, the walls were reboarded and bonded up to produce a nice level surface to tile onto – this would ensure the best end result.

 

A temporary toilet was reinstated to limit disruption whilst the work was being carried out.

Here you can see we have also run pipework & cables to suit the new suite positions etc

The ceiling was overboarded and then skimmed (plastered) to produce a nice flat finish with no cracks.

 

After

The finished bathroom featured fully tiled walls and a fully tiled floor (heated by undertile heating).

A wall hung basin & WC were positioned on a newly studded out ledge that served to conceal all the necessary pipework, making the room appear larger.

A shaver point was added for electric toothbrushes and electric shavers.

An LED mirror unit over the basin added a nice touch.

A thermostatic, twin head mixer shower provided a nice shower over the bath (in conjunction with a glass bath screen.)

Summary

2 weeks, project managed bathroom installation in Leeds from start to finish with all the bits in between taken care of:

  • No having to find a builder, plumber, then a tiler, a separate electrician and joiner, oh and also a plasterer / painter…..
  • No having to manage & communicate with all these trades to bring your plan to fruition.
  • Ability to pick suite items from a local showroom (for personal choice without overwhelm)
