Prior to the installation, the toilet was in need of a bit of TLC.
Work done in the WC:
- Stripping everything out
- Replacing the soil stack outside to facilitate the fitting of a new close coupled toilet.
- Chasing pipework into the wall to position a designer towel radiator.
- Adding new spotlights to the ceiling.
- Skimming the walls & ceiling.
- Preparing and tiling the floor with large porcelain tiles with an upstand detail (rather than skirting boards.)
- Tiling the wall behind the toilet and the window cill.
- Painting & decorating.
The bathroom layout was essentially kept the same, although a 1700×700 shower tray was replaced with an 1800 x 800mm reinforced bath.
The basin was changed to a wall hung unit, meaning that clutter could be reduced.
In order to do this, the room was squared off when reboarded (to ensure the unit sat perfectly in the corner) and pipework was recessed into the wall prior to tiling.
A Grohe mixer tap was installed and a bluetooth backlit mirror was fitted, which allowed the customer to play music from their smartphone through their mirror whilst in the bath!
An inline extractor fan was fitted to extract moist bathroom air from the bathroom via a vent in the ceiling, and spotlights were added to provide light.
Underfloor heating was added for toasty feet on cold winters mornings and a large towel radiator ensured that towels would be nice and warm following a lengthy shower or bath listening to music.
The bar mixer shower was replaced with a concealed Grohe valve with diverter.
The shower valve could be used to fill the bath or to send water through the shower head for showering, meaning there was no subsequent need for any bath taps.
This helped with the minimalist look of the bathroom.
All the walls and floors were finished with dark grey porcelain tiles, complimented by colour matched grout & silicone, and the tiles were complimented by angular chrome trims.
