Bathrooms through the ages

Bathroom Louth

The brief

Bathroom Louth. The brief for this project was to create a bathroom with a shower that suited the property because it was built in the 1800’s. Initially we called round to take the dimensions and survey the room to find out what would be required to complete the project. On our survey we discussed a couple of problems that would need dealing with. The property had an asbestos stench pipe and a flat roof meaning there was loft space above the room.

We offered a few designs and narrowed it down to one with a 900mm quadrant shower enclosure and 1600mm bath. To keep with the feel of the house the client also selected the Richmond basin and toilet, this classic look sits well in the room. We then turned our attention to the tiles, for the floor wood effect floor tiles where chosen. These create a finish that looks like a wooden floor but will outlast the bathroom due to their porcelain construction. For the walls we used a large stone effect tile with a double row of natural stone mosaics to create a feature. Bathroom Louth

Work begins 

Once the design and items had been picked out our engineers began by removing the existing suite, tiles and disposing of all the rubbish. Our specialist asbestos handler removed the stench pipe and disposed of it safely. Our installers then fitted the new stench pipe which allowed the toilet to be moved so a shower enclosure would fit. All the pipe work, shower tray and bath where first fixed and the floor was reinforced in preparation for tiling.

This is where our tiling specialist took over and install the floor tiles with flexible adhesive and grout. This means that the floor will be down for many years to come even though it is upstairs on a wooden floor. For the walls our tiler liaised with the customer to decide where to put the mosaics and also to separate the two rows with one tile. The finished effect looks stunning.

Our engineers then came back in to finish everything off. This involved install the Roman shower enclosure, Aqualisa shower and suite. We also boxed over the exposed pipe work and for the most part this was tiled. As is always the case with older property’s there was one section of pipe work running from the airing cupboard that did present a problem. To hide these away while still allowing the door to open we installed a section of boxing made from PVC. Bathroom Louth
