This article shows a recent narrow bathroom installation in Pudsey, Leeds.
All work carried out by ukbathroomguru.com.
What we do
We install quality bathrooms from start to finish, with all the bits in between taken care of.
We provide advice and guidance during a free site survey, and we have a blog with lots of articles that cover frequently asked questions and show you examples of our recent work.
We install bathrooms from start to finish, supplying all the necessary trades and project managing the whole process, so you don’t have to! We normally supply & fit bathroom suites but in this example we fitted a customer supplied suite.
We work to detailed, itemised estimates with fixed costs, so you can budget properly without fear of unexpected skyrocketing prices.
Our focus is on doing a proper job for a fair price in a reasonable time – see here for more info or contact me for a quote.
As part of this recent bathroom fitting in Pudsey, the following work was done:
2 x walls were stripped back during the ‘gutting’ stage to be reboarded. The lat & plaster wall above was stripped back to the studs to be reboarded to ensure the wall was perfectly flat and capable of taking the weight of the large porcelain wall tiles.
Please see here for more information on preparing walls prior to tiling.
Above you can see how the old toilet pan has been left in situ for the customer to use during the renovation work.
The walls were then reboarded after pipework was run in the void where necessary to suit the new design / layout:
The combined waste pipework for the basin & bath was run in the wall & under the bath, then under the floor to the drains outside the property for a neat finish that negated the need for any boxing in.
Hot and cold pipework was also run in the walls for the wall hung basin:
Please see here for more information on how the wall hung basin was fitted if you are interested.
Note the large format porcelain floor tiles & small upstand which replaced traditional skirting boards.
The old shower cubicle was removed and was replaced with a shower over a beautiful double ended bath that was filled by an overflow bath filler controlled by the shower valve.
Shower pipework was hidden within a newly built stud wall that would seperate the basin area behind it from the bath / shower, and provide a surface onto which the shower & glass bath screen could be sited.
A wooden frame was built around the bath to support its edges for a solid construction and to provide the framework for the bath panel:
This design featured a tiled bath panel and no bath taps for a clean minimalist look.
No bath taps for a minimalist look.
The shower valve chosen allowed the user to operate the bath, and both shower heads from one simple valve:
In the picture(s) below you can see how the overall bathroom layout was altered slightly.
The UPVC window was replaced as part of the bathroom installation and this required that the toilet position was rotated through 90º as shown below:
The waste pipe was boxed in with wall tiles for a neat finish.
