Tired and in need of updating
The original shower room had a tired old electric shower set in to the resess and shower curtin. The out-dated tiling need some tlc.
A leaking WC, and a basin that looked old with hard to twist taps and unsightly pipe work all on show.
Overall the room was cold and damp, without heating and needed a little warmth adding.
After my initial consolation with my client and much discussion about what my client was looking to achieve form the makeover, I put forward my ideas and proposals to update the shower room.
I was asked to complete a partial makeover of an existing shower room, I love a challenge, something I can get my head around and make a difference.
I always think It’s amazing how changing things like taps, shower, furniture, a radiator and flooring can be so effective. Occasionally if it’s possible to be able to leave any existing tiling in situ to minimise costs too.
My Ideas and proposal to update and give the shower room a makeover
To Replace the Shower tray
To Replace the shower tray from the existing old style and well used with old-style fittings, to a new modern white low-level tray, changing the look instantly to fresh, shiny new.
By adding the new silver look frameless bi-fold door makes it light and airy giving the impression of more space, it instantly updates to a modern, easy to use and to get in to shower. The added bonus making it easy to look after.
To Replace the Electric Shower
I removed the old outdated electric shower and replaced it with with a new hi-tec thermostatic diverter shower with sleek up to date controls, there easy to use and with safety issues in mind make perfect sense.
This also gave the shower an instant new trendy feel. The elegant controls are neat and slim down the surface space taken all adding to the overhaul look of new fresh and trendy.
Replacing the basin
Replacing the old outdated basin with the updated modern space-saving wall mounted cloakroom basin, incorporating cupboards for storing and instantly hiding the pipework, almost effortless gives the bathroom a trendy smart updated look.
Replacing the WC
The tired and leaking WC that really did need to be changed, would be replaced with a fresh-looking streamline and stylish modern version with comfort height efficient close coupled WC.
To Supply and install under floor heating in the shower room.
