Mr & Mrs Clarkson, Guiseley, Leeds: Transforming a tired bathroom to a modern shower room

12 November 2014

The Problem

Mr & Mrs Clarkson’s bathroom was small and originally installed in the 1980’s, with a shell shaped bathroom suite and six inch square pink tiles on the walls, all of which were fashionable at the time of the original installation. The tile grouting had become untidy and there was an unsightly hot water airing cupboard in the corner of the room. There was a shower over what was a small than average bath and the ceiling was covered in polystyrene tiles that had seen better days. In short, the Clarkson’s wanted their bathroom bringing up to date, with a shower cubicle in place of their bath.

The Solution

Our designers worked closely with the Clarksons to agree on a new design that was to include a large, offset shower cubicle, with easy gliding shower doors, and a brand new Mira electric shower. The ugly airing cupboard was demolished and a new one was built in its place, with the outside being tiled to match the new tiling in the bathroom, which included mosaic border tiles for effect. A contemporary toilet, washbasin and taps were installed, and the polystyrene tiles on the ceiling were taken down before the ceiling was re-plastered and painted. An extractor fan was installed to provide ventilation, and the bathroom was finished with a range of accessories, new flooring, and a chrome towel warmer.

The Result

In less than two weeks, the Clarksons' bathroom was transformed from tired and dated to a light, airy and modern shower room, which they could show off to their friends.
