This complete bathroom was installed in under 2 weeks by ukbathroomguru.com.
I carry out project managed bathroom installation in Leeds.
Please see here for more details or continue reading for a case study of a recent installation.
Day 1: Removal & disposal of existing bathroom
The old suite was removed and disposed of, and the following work was done over the next week and a half:
The existing suite was replaced with good quality modern fittings from our local bathroom supplier:
- Shower bath with curved glass bath screen and pre formed side panel
- Thermostatic bar mixer shower with 10 year warranty
- Basin & vanity unit combined to provide extra storage
- Attractive yet affordable close coupled toilet
- Chrome towel warmer
A window cill was added along with a custom made towel storage box to fill the space at the end of the bath, whilst providing a useful function.
Unsightly (but necessary) pipework was hidden by ‘boxing in’ made of melamine. Provisions were made (in the form of a small hole in the boxing in to access the isolating valve) to isolate the toilet cistern, should future maintenance be required.
The walls were prepared & painted in an emulsion paint suitable for bathrooms & any woodwork e.g. window cills, skirting & arthitrave was glossed.
Small ceramic tiles were chosen by the customer from our local tile supplier and these were applied around the bath & behind the basin after tanking out the walls in all of the ‘wet areas.’
Vinyl flooring was added as an affordable way of providing a nice floor finish that would be easy to maintain.
This bathroom installation started on a Monday and finished the following Thursday.
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.
