A recent case study by ukbathroomguru.com
We have helped many people to combine their bathroom & WC into one larger room.
This customer turned their cramped and dated bathroom into a beautiful large space (with our help of course!)
Case study (opening up a WC & bathroom)
BeforeThe existing bathroom was dated and felt small so it was decided that the WC & bathroom should be combined into one larger space by removing the dividing wall.The now redundant cylinder cupboard was to be removed to suit the new bathroom layout, which would consist of a separate freestanding bath and large waslk in shower.
This was possible as the bathroom (once opened up) was approximately 3 x 2.3m.The entryway into the new bathroom was brought forward into the hall, and the loft hatch was relocated into the hallway.
We re-used one of the existing doors to match the remaining bedroom doors in the hallway.
AfterThe space previously occupied by the old WC was utilised as a large walk in shower with low profile shower tray and twin head thermostatic mixer shower for a waterfall type showering experience.
An attractive minimalist 3 piece suit was fitted into the rest of the space.
Bold tiles were fitted on the floor and metro tiles to the lower half of the walls, with the upper half of the walls being plastered and painted with an anti mould bathroom paint.
The wall hung basin with an exposed chrome bottle trap made the room feel large and spacious, and the WC featured a soft close seat to eliminate noisy slamming and was removable for easy cleaning
The freestanding bath added a touch of luxury for those times when a shower just won’t do.
The minimalist glass enclosure ensured that the room felt large and open when viewed from the doorway as there was no interruption to the view.
We also supplied and fitted a custom cut mirror over the basin and paired this with two wall lights to provide some extra task lighting..
FREE consumer guide to knocking through your WC & bathroom
We’ve done quite a few of these types of jobs now.

How we helped
We listened to the customers ideas and aspirations for their new bathroom.
We advised them of what was feasible when we carried out our free site survey, and they looked at our past work on the site, read our reviews and downloaded our guides to gain an understanding of who they were partnering with and what they could expect.
We worked with our customer to plan the required work, and advised them of the likely cost.
We detailed the work to be carried out in an extremely accurate and precise quotation, broken down by trade, so they didn’t need to worry about lots of unforseen costs cropping up because things had been overlooked initially.
We supplied this bathroom suite from our local supplier to ensure a seamless installation and competitive pricing.
We installed the bathroom from start to finish, supplying all the necessary trades and project managing the whole process, so they didn’t have to!
