Case study

This en suite involved a fair amount of work when compared to a normal installation:

Bathroom before renovation

Bathroom prior to layout change

The existing bathroom was a main bathroom but we needed to make it an en suite by blocking the space off from one room and having it accessed by an adjacent bedroom.

structural adjustment work

This involved knocking a blockwork wall down, that ran across the new en suite & adjacent dressing room) and then rebuilding a stud wall in its place in a slightly different location (to square off the room)

laying a solid sub floor

A doorway was knocked through between the en suite and the dressing room.

A new sub floor was laid to ensure the new tile installation would be rock solid – In this case batons were screwed down to the concrete base and then boarded over with 25mm plywood.

shower area & concealed cistern beyond

self levelled floor

Pipes were run and walls were plastered and painted, before the floor was levelled using a self levelling compound to bring it up to the level of the bedroom from which the space was accessed.

concealed cistern

Provisions were made for a back to wall toilet with a concealed cistern.

shower tray & tanked shower area

A shower tray was added and the area was Tanked prior to tiling.
