Do you wish you had a bigger bathroom with more facilities?
|If you don’t look like this, then WHY are you stuck with their bathroom designs?|
Is your bathroom small and pokey?
Maybe lacking facilities?
Or a bit dated?
It’s no surprise.
Did you know that in a lot of UK houses there is a separate WC & bathroom due to the Victorians?
You see, when water was first pumped into houses directly in the 19th century, people added sinks and taps to their existing washstands in their bedrooms and put the toilet into whatever closet in the hall they could find, hence the term “water closet” or WC.’
Later, bathing facilities were often added to a spare room near the WC to keep drainage simple.
This is why many UK bathrooms have a small WC at the top of the stairs and a separate bathroom at the back – they are very common in semi detached properties.
BUT did you know that you are not stuck with this 19th century invention?
You have the option of bringing your outdated space into the 21s century
by knocking through the WC & bathroom into one big, bright room.
You can even use the old WC as a large shower (or even walk in wet room!)
As well as having a beautiful new bright bathroom with a HUGE shower, you could actually wash your hands after using the loo without going into a different room.
Great idea, right!
We’ve done loads of these and we LOVE them as they have a massive ‘before & after’ type impact.
PS You could just re-do your bathroom and leave your toilet alone, but you’d be missing out on a great opportunity to ADD FACILITIES (like a separate shower).
Our ‘bathroom knock-throughs’ generally fall into one of 2 categories
1. In smaller rooms we often leave the toilet where it is and remove the airing cupboard to install a new shower
2. In larger rooms we often add a large shower into the old WC space
If you’ve been thinking about doing this for a while, take a leaf out of our customer Paul’s book.
He didn’t like his old bathroom:
He wanted to be able to walk into a brand new HUGE walk in shower…
…with integrated storage to keep things tidy.
…and be surrounded by beautiful fixtures that made him feel good.
…in a new bathroom flooded with natural light from 2 windows.
So he called us:
“The Bathroom Guru team did a fantastic job of completely renovating my bathroom in just over two weeks.
This involved knocking through the previously separate toilet and bathroom, re-plastering, all plumbing work and full tiling of the whole bathroom.
All of the work was done to a high standard and for a good price.
Prior to the work, Chris the Project Manager was able to guide me through the process of designing the layout of the new bathroom and selecting the most appropriate fittings.
The Bathroom Guru website was very helpful to understanding the process, and the approach to quoting for the work was detailed and honest.
Everyone at Bathroom Guru were incredibly friendly to work with
and I won’t hesitate to use them for future projects.”
Paul, Roundhay (Houzz review)
Me & my team have designed, planned and then subsequently installed loads of bathrooms (like Pauls) to a high standard.
And that’s why we have so many other happy customers too:
My customers were savvy enough to realise that they probably couldn’t effectively plan the work on their own (where to start?!) and they knew they definitely didn’t want the hassle of having to find the whole team of tradesmen this type of work requires:
- Window fitter
- Floor fitter (vinyl)
- Roofer (potentially)
- Painter & decorator
What were they going to do, get 3 quotes for each trade and then patch all their separate trademen into some kind of team?
They’d have to wait in for 30 different tradesmen – God knows how many of which would even show up, or give them a quote even if they did!
And the work itself would take months as each trade became available!
But disregarding that, they just didn’t want to plant themselves squarely in the middle of all these people to manage the job without any real knowledge or know how of how the job should be done.
We can carry out your WC & bathroom conversion, with all the bits in between taken care of.
We do everything required to knock through your separate WC & bathroom from start to finish and project manage the whole process, so you don’t have to!
However, first a caveat!
I have a limited number of fitting slots available, as I cannot keep pace with demand.
All of my experienced fitting teams are usually booked up for a couple of months in advance, so DON’T DELAY getting started planning your new bigger bathroom today.
I operate on a strictly 1st come 1st served basis.
