This article features a case study of a ukbathroomguru.com en suite design & installation in Alwoodley, Leeds, which involved making the existing en suite a bit bigger than before.
This en suite was designed and installed from start to finish, and involved the supply & project management of several tradesmen once the planning & design was finalised.

PS This article focuses on the refurbishment of an existing en suite but to read about the installation of a brand new en suite (where there was non before) then please see here.
A freestanding toilet & basin were swopped for some fitted furniture with an integrated basin.
- Hides unattractive pipework from view
- Provides vital storage space under the basin
- Looks great!
The old en suite had a chunk taken out of it in the corner for a cupboard accessed from the hall on the other side of the wall.
This space was effectively taken back to insert a large walk in shower enclosure into the en suite by removing the stud wall in between the 2 spaces and blocking up the old cupboard doorway to the hall.
A new concealed shower valve & diverter was fitted which could either send water out of the large fixed position shower head or out of the small shower head on the hose.
All of the walls & floor were tiled with large format porcelain tiles for a long lasting finish.
Please see here for more information on floor tiling.
As part of the electrical work, an extractor fan and ceiling spotlights & were added, as well as underfloor heating and an illuminated bathroom mirror above the basin.
As part of the bathroom installation we elected to hide the shower waste pipe in the stud wall behind the radiator, as this would negate the need for unsightly boxing-in as with the existing bathroom above.
A modern designer towel radiator was added in place of the existing one and the curving rail of this design allows for large towels to be draped over it to dry.
