This bathroom had been renovated about 20 years ago by the owners and it was time for an update but these days it was beyond them doing it themselves. They wanted a beautiful bathroom that would see out their days.
They took a lot of time to plan the room eventually settling on a bathroom that combines very modern layout and fittings that complement the older style of their home.
What the job involved
- Removal of the wall and door between the toilet and bathroom
- Removal of the external door to the toilet
- Complete demolition/strip back of the area to the bare wall frames and floor joists.
- Straightening all walls and the floor. Nothing was straight or square. The floor had a slope of 40mm over the 4m length and each of the walls were out by up to 25mm.
- The customer had requested that the walls be sheets with cement sheet instead of plaster and that a niche shelf is added in the wall.
- Instead of having a shower recess, they had designed a “wet area” that combined the shower and the bath area with a full width 10mm thick glass wall and shower door across the room. A tiled shower base was recessed into the floor and the new steel bath was set in a hob, the full width of the room.
- Replace the existing vanity bench top with a new, custom-made stone bench top
The customers were completely and thoroughly delighted with the result.
