This bathroom that I recently refurbished had many serviceable items that were reused in the ‘new bathroom’ which was to essentially be a fully tiled version of the existing one (with a few elements upgraded).
- Shower tray & shower valve
- WC & basin unit(s)
- Back to wall toilet & soft close seat
- Basin & taps
- Large mirror above basin
- Extractor fan
- Wall heater
- Shower chair & grab rails
- Towel radiator
- Wall cabinet
- Shower tray + installation cost – £300+
- WC & basin unit plus plinth – £400+
- Back to wall toilet & soft close seat – £150+
- Large mirror – £100+
- Extractor fan + installation cost – £80+
- Wall heater + installation cost – £80+
- Shower chair & grab rails – £100+
- Towel radiator + installation cost – £250+
- Cabinet – £40+
As part of the new bathroom installation the following tiling work was carried out:
- Stripping of the existing wall tiles & subsequent reboarding of all the walls.
- Tanking of the wet areas.
- Fitting ceramic wall tiles with border.
- Fitting porcelain floor tiles (to replace the existing vinyl floor with a more hard wearing choice).
Some new items were deemed necessary in addition to the complete retiling of the bathroom.
- Glass shower enclosure with easy clean safety glass fitted onto the existing tray.
- Riser rail & shower head / hose fitted onto the existing shower valve.
- Worktop fitted onto the existing WC / Basin unit (the old worktop was very warped as it had been damaged by a previous leak on the toilet cistern.)
- Dual flush concealed cistern used in conjunction with the existing toilet (particularly important as the customer was on a water meter).
- Keep the existing toilet but maybe add a new soft close seat?
- Keep the basin but renew the waste & add a new mixer tap?
- Re-use your bath & add a new pop up waste & filler (tap) if required – most baths I take out are perfectly fine!
- Renew parts as needed e.g. the unit worktop but not the cabinets (as in this example).
- Add a dual flush cistern to a back to wall toilet to save water (as in this example).
- Add new valves to a towel radiator that is otherwise still OK.
- Add new lighting to liven up the room to make it seem less dingy
