This shows a simple new bathroom installation by ukbathroomguru.com in Leeds, which involved replacing a bath with a shower, as well as a few other things.
This bathroom involved the supply & project management of a few trades over the installation period:
First of all a plan was agreed upon and all necessary finishes, suite items, tiles etc were approved before work commenced.
Trades involved and work done
The existing suite & wall tiles / plasterboard walls were removed from the bathroom and disposed of in a skip.
This was done to avoid the problems associated with tiling over the existing wall tiles which was just as well as all the walls were found to be blown, and would have fallen down had we tiled over them.
The bare brick walls were reboarded prior to being skimmed along with the ceiling ready for painting with an anti-mould bathroom paint to help with condensation in the bathroom.
Skirting boards were fitted & a new door, which involved amending the door frame so that the new shower enclosure could fit into the corner of the room.
The bath was replaced with a large 1400 x 700 shower tray & enclosure, combined with a thermostatic bar mixer shower.
The enclosure involved a sliding 1400mm door and a 700mm frameless return panel to maximise the amount of glass, whilst minimising the amount of steel to give a lighter, airy feeling of space.
A new toilet was fitted and the basin was relocated to an adjacent wall to maximise the space and limit the amount of boxing in required (for a neater finish).
All other pipework was relocated under the floor to maximise the sense of space.
A new chrome towel radiator was also fitted.
The existing electric shower cabling was removed and a new central light was fitted with an updated pull cord.
A mirror unit with an integrated shaver socket & light was also fitted above the basin.
The walls in the shower area were tanked to ensure a long lasting tile installation with no associated problems of water ingress.
The shower area was then tiled with ceramic tiles and finished with a complimentary coloured grout & silicone.
A vinyl floor was fitted due to its low cost and easy maintenance.
This bathroom installation took 2 weeks though there were a few bank holidays in the middle of this, so it would normally be a week and a half.
The work schedule was very tightly organised by a project manager (me) ensuring the work was done in the correct order to give the best finish in the shortest time.
It involved many tradesmen that the homeowner may have found difficult to source individually, and then organise into a tight schedule: On this job we had a joiner, tiler, plumber, vinyl floor fitter and a couple of labourers & painters – All project managed by a single source to make the process as smooth as possible.
Thanks for reading, give me a call if you would like a nice new bathroom in under 2 weeks.
