In many houses there is a toilet & separate bathroom at the top of the stairs. Whilst some people choose to knock the rooms into one large bathroom, you may wish to keep the rooms separate. This case study shows a recent such example of a bathroom installation in Moortown, Leeds.
First time have used Chris and his team. So pleased, would always use them again for any bathroom work and cannot recommend too highly to others.

Case study (below)
This bathroom in Moortown, Leeds took 2 weeks to complete and involved the application of many trades to produce a bathroom that the customer was very happy with (see testimonial link above).
As part of the work we replaced the bath with a walk in shower to help with accessibility issues (getting in & out of the bath). To this extent we fitted a large low level shower tray with a fixed glass panel and chrome grab rails and supports.
The bidet was removed and the freestanding basin & pedestal was replaced with a run of bathroom units with an integrated semi recessed basin and a couple of storage cupboard for bathroom items. The worktop was made to span the width of the room to allow laundry bins to be placed into the gaps created.
It would have even been possible to add a toilet into this room as well but decided it wasn’t warranted in this particular case.
A heated chrome towel radiator replaced the existing radiator with chromed copper pipework for a high quality finish.
The separate toilet was completely stripped back and unfortunately the render beneath the wall tiles was found to be blown, so the room needed to be stripped back to brick before being reboarded (This was the same with the bathroom also.)
This can often happen when removing wall tiles before re-tiling (particularly old wall tiles) and is a potential hidden bathroom installation cost as it is one of those things that can happen when preparing bathroom walls for retiling.
PS Don’t be tempted to tile over existing tiles!
Walls were then tiled with a large format ceramic tile and finished with a colour matched silicon & grout.
The floor was overboarded and then a high quality vinyl floor was was fitted as vinyl is:
- soft & warm underfoot
- cost effective vs a tiled floor
