Old Flat Bathroom Renovated in Stoneygate, LE2
The scope of the project: what the customer required
For this project, the customer had an old bathroom in a flat, which was on the second floor.
According to the customer’s requirements, he wanted something that was minimalist but also easy to clean.
This customer was partially blind and because he couldn’t see much, he wanted the colouring across the whole bathroom to be very neutral.
Fixing up the bath area
We started with the bath area where we added easy-to-clean panels around the entire bath. There were no grout lines to create a simplistic look with a natural beige tiles effect.
In particular, the tiling effect was done in a straight effect when tiled one on top of the other. We used jasmine grout, which was married up within the tiles to create a symmetrical and minimalist look.
Adding storage space
Before this bathroom installation, the space was quite minimalist in terms of storage space. However, the customer opted for more storage space in the form of fitted furniture.
There were two 600 mm units, one under the basin and one above the WC unit, which came with glass shelves. We also fitted a storage unit with shelves across from the WC, next to the door opposite the main storage units.
We also added an LED mirror and two shelving points for the customer’s shaving kit and for his toothbrush.
Addressing the heating issues
Because the flat was on the second floor of this building, the customer lost a lot of heat. The single glazed window on the property was fixed up to prevent this issue from occurring in the future. However, we also brought in two heaters.
The first one was on central heating and the second one was electric. This way, if the customer feels a bit colder during winter, he will now be able to automatically switch it on using a timer.
Making the flooring warmer
As a specialist tiling contractor, this new bathroom design project also required that we make the flooring warmer to the feet. To achieve this, the customer chose cushioned, vinyl flooring that was beige with a patterned tile effect.
Glamming up the ceiling
We also fixed up the cladding on the ceiling, added LED spotlights and a chrome extractor fan. Regarding the extractor fan, this was all ducted out and vented out through the eaves within the loft space.
Overall, this project took 14 days to complete from start to finish. We found it challenging because it was a second floor flat with no lifts.
As such, everything had to be manually taken up the stairs, including the large panelling, which was difficult to take up the stairs without damaging any of the walls in the communal area and the walkway.
However, we managed to do this safely and carefully, resulting in a fantastic customer experience, who was happy with the results.
