Bathroom renovation Rushey Mead, LE4
The job specs
For their bathroom renovation, this customer wanted something that would remain timeless and in fashion for the next 20 years or so. Because they liked the idea of having the bathroom grey, they chose grey tiles and grout for the purpose of the renovation works.
What we did
Sticking to the customer’s requirements for their bathroom renovation project, we went for a dark grey tile with a matt finish. The wall tiles were 300 x 600 mm in size and the customer went for the straight effect tile design. A little nugget of useful information from us when doing your tiles is that you can have a straight effect or a brick effect. With the latter, you have an easy-to-clean design because everything, including the grout, is symmetrical. In this case, the customer went for a lighter-coloured grout, which is a sort of silver grey and we also matched the silicone in specific areas to be silver grey, too.
1 Changes to the window area
As a starting point, we finished off the window area with chrome tile trims, which were 10 mm thick. The tiles were porcelain and the trims were 10 mm. Owing to the size of the bathroom, we had little space to maneuver and didn’t make extensive changes..
2 Changing the services for the shower
We then changed the services for the shower from the window wall to another wall which gave a more open space when going in and out of the bath area. It is now possible to shower without water splashing on the window area, making the experience more comfortable than before. We also added a shower basket, a basin and pad and a new toilet with a soft seat. Finally, we installed a thermostatic mixer on the bath with an adaptation to have a shower there, if required.
3 Changing the flooring
As for the flooring, the customer opted for vinyl, which we also installed.
4 Retaining the pre-made electrics
Because this customer had the electrics in the bathroom done before that, we refitted the extractor fan on the wall once the tiles were in place and we did not change the ceiling at all. The ceiling and the light on it were in terms of the previous bathroom design. In addition, we reinstalled the customer’s radiator, which was taken off prior to us doing the work.
