This article shows how ukbathroomguru renovated a house bathroom in approximately 2 weeks
“We are both very pleased with the final product, in fact both bathrooms. A first class professional job. It was a pleasure to have you, Jay, Seth and plasterers and electricians working in our house, all were very friendly, courteous and respectful of our house, thank you all very much.”

Bathroom plans don’t have to always look amazing – that’s not what their purpose is.
Their purpose is to see what suite items will work in your space and will produce a nice bathroom in the flesh not on paper!
This is why I say that a bathroom planner in a showroom can produce nice drawings but its no use if your bathroom can’t be fitted in that manner due to on site restrictions that they cant possibly know about like floor construction, joist direction, relative position of drainage runs, boiler type, water pressure etc.
We work with our customers to deliver bathrooms that will suit their needs both now and in the future by providing a free site survey where we come and listen to their wants & needs and then work with what they have to deliver the best possible outcome in the shortest possible time.
Heres a quick case study of a recent installation…..
The bath was relocated into the space left when the old cylinder cupboard was removed.
PS removing old cylinder cupboards often involves a fair bit of work in relocating old pipework & cabling so beware!
This repositioning of the bath allowed us to fit a full run of fitted bathroom furniture along the external wall for lots of useful storage:
Planning furniture runs like this is fairly easy as units come in standard widths (30, 45, 50 & 60cm usually) and you can infill any ‘leftover’ space with a filler panel as here.
We paired high gloss white units with a dark grey worktop to compliment the floor tiles.
These units are more costly to buy & install than stand alone toilets & basins but they look a lot nicer and provide a lot more storage space (as well as bench space for toiletries, toothbrushes etc).
The white units pair well with the ceramic white tiles, giving the bathroom a clean, crisp look.
The existing small shower enclosure was replaced by a larger enclosure for a nicer showering experience.
Also, the need for a shower tray was done away with as we chose to make the shower like a wet room, which essentially means that the tiled floor extends into the shower and a drain is added.
Its actually a bit more complicated that this but you can read about that here.
To add a bit of drama, our customer elected to have us fit mosaic tiles behind the shower.
Mosaic tiles are expensive (10x the price of the rest of the wall tiles in this example per m2 in this instance) so it pays to use them wisely.
Also, mosaic tiles are less forgiving on uneven walls so surface preparation is crucial in these instances.
For this reason and a couple of others, mosaic tiles are more expensive to fit as well as to buy.
