You can see in this post a Supply and Fit Bathroom Refurbishment in Aberdeen.
We started with an old bathroom that was partially tiled and partially wallpapered.
In order to fit both a shower and a bathtub, the old bathroom had a special layout.
The old layout had to be completely changed in order to fit a modern walk-in shower, a towel rail, and some ample storage space. Also, the old bathroom had name brand products in the past and the customer wanted the new bathroom to have name brand products as well.
Although it might not be obvious in this photo, we had to build a small wall in order to hide the soil pipe. The soil pipe can be seen in the right bottom corner. In the past, the toilet was right in the corner.
Building a wall for hiding the soil pipe meant that we could build some small shelves inside it in order to gain some extra storage space. Just a little bit, enough so you can put your shower gel/shampoos there.
In the picture above it can be seen that the shower has a side trap. It is also worth noting that the glass is 10mm thick. This is far thicker than the average 6mm or 8mm fixed glass. Being a very wide glass (1100mm), it meant that we needed 3 people to get it in the bathroom.
We used our favorite shower manufacturer, Mira. The controller was fitted at the shower entrance. This is a smart trick in order to allow you to start the shower before entering the cabin. This helps especially in those situations where you want to make sure that the water is hot enough for you.
This is another picture, this time a little bit later in the project. While it is not completely finished, the shampoo storage space is close to completion.
Remember the initial photo where the bathtub and radiator was? Here is a photo of the work in progress for the corner units. It can’t be seen inside, but we used a high-quality Grohe cistern inside the toilet unit and the tap for the semi-recessed sink is Mira again. It looks messy, but wait until the final pictures to see the end result.
This is how the corner looks after we fitted the vinyl click flooring, door handles and did some general cleaning.
Do you remember that initially, we could see a small part of that soil pipe? Well, we managed to fit a 200mm unit between the toilet and the shower screen. The result: you cant’ see the soil pipe at wall and you have a unit for toilet rolls or toilet brush.
A photo with the shower, better cleaned this time.
In this picture, you can see a Roca toilet with soft close seat. Also, you can see the 3 drawers we fitted in order to get some extra storage space.
If you had a look at some other projects of us, you’ll notice that we love these sort of LED mirrors. They are great, as they are heated and demist the mirror. Also, you can activate it simply by moving your hand under it.
For those wondering why we didn’t fit more units next to the sink, well, we couldn’t have opened the door otherwise.
The bathroom also includes LED lights, towel radiator, new plasterboard. You might see some of these in the videos below. Sorry for the video quality, the sensor had dust on it and we didn’t realise.
