| This bathroom was actually built on a very tight budget as the property was bought to let.
Before renovation this room served as the kitchen. The property had an outside toilet and the previous tenant (a 96 year old lady) washed at the kitchen sink!
This presented problems with dealing with the 4” soil pipe. The client was unhappy at the prospect of a macerator, therefore we had to serve the room with new drains which interconnected into the existing salt glaze pipes outside.
The ceiling was re-boarded over the existing one and the walls were ‘dot and dabbed’ with plasterboard.
A stud wall was built at the end of the room and a door fitted. This gave us room to fit a small utility area and house the boiler. Before our renovation, the property was unheated!
The floor was suffering in places with rot therefore was repaired and strengthened with ply board.
The walls at low level were covered with tongue and groove boards and decorated in a combination of cream and white eggshell.
The floor was tiled in a simple chequer pattern of black and white, with a charcoal grout to finish.
A freestanding bath, with claw feet was fitted, as was a Victoriana style basin and high level toilet cistern.
