A recent case study by ukbathroomguru.com


In many houses in the UK there is often a separate toilet & bathroom at the top of the stairs on the 1st floor – this layout is particularly common in semi detached properties.

Many times the two rooms are kept separate, with the toilet in one room and the basin and shower or bath in the other room.

Knocking the two rooms into one large family bathroom has a number of advantages and often suits the way people live today.

Case study

plan before & after

This project involved removing the dividing wall between the two rooms and making a new entryway into the space.

The design featured a large, 1400×800 shower enclosure that took up the entire old WC room.

The wall was knocked down and the old suite and tiles were removed on the 1st day – this is the messy, dusty bit!

During the following 2 weeks the bathroom was completed.

The new doorway was made – this involved joinery and plastering trades.
