Complete bathroom remodel in Fulstow, Lincolnshire. My clients, whom Ive already completed two bathrooms for at their previous home, told me they wanted to remove the old bath, which did not drain and totally and replace it with a large shower instead. They had chosen the tiles already, but everything else was open to suggestion. Now, although this sounds straightforward, I must explain that this property is an extremely old cottage. The floor in the bathroom has a slope on it (which was why the bath did not fully drain) and all the walls are out of square, leaning out and the front wall is actually bowed. Although this causes problems with installation, my clients wanted to retain as much of the cottaged quirky character as they could. Therefore, together, we came up with the design you can see in the photos below.
The shower walls were studded out, insulated and cement boarded to form the enclosure and the tray installed on legs, to level it up on the floor. The bowed wall was also boarded to make it straight and level too, otherwise it could not be tiled using the large format tiles the client had chosen.
We installed three ceiling spotlights, painted the ceiling and the walls and tiled the areas required. On the floor, rather than tile, which we could not use, unless we levelled it up first, we installed cushion floor. We then installed the shower, screen, cupboard, vanity unit, sink, toilet and towel rail and formed a bespoke plinth for the front of the shower. Oh, and hung the new mirror.
I personally think the result looks beautiful and the clients are highly delighted, so much so, we will be returning later in the year to remodel the downstairs shower room.
Thanks Charles and Alison for allowing us to work with you on this gorgeous remodel.
