This bathroom had the following work carried out by ukbathroomguru over the course of approximately 1½ weeks:
- Old bathroom suite ripped out
- Ceiling plastered and walls prepared for tiling
- Walls tiled with large format ceramic tiles with a mosaic border
- Vinyl flooring laid
- Ceiling painted in anti-mould paint
- New light fitting & extractor fan installed
- New bathroom suite installed (toilet, vanity unit, towel radiator, shower bath & bar mixer shower)
The old tiles were removed as well as the old suite. Luckily the walls were still in fact without the need for much preparatory work prior to tiling. This can add unexpected costs to a bathroom renovation if not considered at the outset.
After the bathroom was stripped back, 1st fix plumbing was done (running pipework to and from the new toilet & basin etc. After this was done, the old toilet was set up for the customer to use on a night (with a temporary “basin” also).
This is useful when the bathroom is the only one in the house and if you are having your bathroom renovated you should ask your installer if any provisions have been made for this (as it does add to the workload slightly.)
Here you can see that the new toilet has been installed temporarily before the tiling has been finished to ensure that the customer is not left without facilities overnight when the tradesmen leave.
After the walls were prepared for tiling (tanked in the wet areas) the walls were tiled with large format ceramic tiles.
30x30cm mosaic sheets were cut down and used as a cheaper alternative to border tiles and combined with mosaic mesh for easier fixing.
The tiling was finished off with colour co-ordinated silicon and grout and a chrome ladder radiator was installed.
A thermostatic bar mixer shower was fixed over the bath filler and a glass shower screen was also fitted.
After the vinyl flooring was laid, a basin vanity unit and close coupled toilet were installed.
A solid bath panel was fitted which would not flex, crack or bend like cheap, thin plastic alternatives.
So as you can see, we install high quality, yet affordable bathrooms from start to finish with all the bits in between taken care of.
