Hall space for bathroom

We help customers turn dead spaces into new bathrooms or en suites.

We pride ourselves on doing the jobs that other installers say are impossible and as a result we’ve come up with some pretty innovate ways to squeeze in en suites, downstairs loos and new bathrooms into all kinds of tricky locations.

In this article, I’ll show you a brief overview of a recent job where we added a bathroom to the hallway on the top floor of a beautiful Victorian house (for the two top bedrooms to share.)


Bathroom studwork

The bathroom was studded off from the hallway (and to hide all of the necessary pipework.)

A velux was added into the roof space to provide natural light, as was a fan to provide ventilation.

Plasterboarding studwork

All studwork was insulated and boarded and all the walls and ceilings were skimmed prior to being painted with an anti mould bathroom paint.

Floor prior to tiling

The floor was very uneven so had to be prepared prior to tiling with the application of a decoupling membrane followed by self levelling compound:

This would ensure that the subsequent tile installation would stand the test of time.

In a similar vein, the shower area was tanked to make sure that it also stood the test of time.

Floor tiling with upstands

The floor was tiled in a brick pattern to add visual interest, and small tiled upstands were fitted rather than skirting boards.


Finished shower room

The finished room featured beautifully painted walls and exposed wooden beams that were stained.

Basin vanity unit

A basin vanity unit added a bit of much needed storage.

Shower room top floor

A basin vanity unit added a bit of much needed storage.

Shower enclosure

A low profile shower enclosure with a bifold door (to maximise space) was fitted into the opposing corner…..

Thermostatic mixer shower

…with a simple thermostatic mixer shower and chrome storage caddy.

New bathroom in hall space

The final result for the customer was a minimal loss of hall space in exchange for a beautiful new bathroom.

This meant that people using the top two bedrooms wouldn’t have to descend to the next floor down to use the main house bathroom, which was obviously much more convenient.
