This is a typical 1990’s bathroom in a 4 bed detached property. Master bedroom has en-suite shower room, this, the house bathroom is a little larger than a 2 bed 1800mm x 1800mm, it’s around 2100mm x 2100mm (7′ x 7′). So double the number of bedrooms and you get an extra 13 sq ft of bathroom!
The brief was to provide a separate shower and also a bath. Customer getting older, wants the safety of a walk in shower, but wants a bath for occasional use and for grand child. The next part of the brief was “no tiles in the shower” to minimise cleaning. The original suite was …. a coloured suite, zut alors! Try finding one today. Corner bath, sink and WC. The particular configuration of door and window (both in the wrong place) created a challenge. The solution, as can be seen from the pictures was to supply a 1400mm long bath and a 700mm wide shower tray. The bath is a sit up rather than lay down in but still fulfils its function perfectly well. For the shower enclosure I used laminate panels for the two wall, the rest of the room being half tiled with chrome trim to all edges. The floor is chipboard, as most modern homes are now, so this was sheathed with cement board, glued and screwed, then screeded to provide a firm , flat surface for tiling. The observant amongst you will notice the same tiles and mosaic as ones in the Contemporary Cottage Bathroom (they are relatives) All bathroom items supplied by City Plumbing.
