Install a new en-suite bathroom in the loft room of a large private house in Cookham, Berkshire.

In a large private house we were contracted to create a new bathroom with a separate shower in a large loft room which was to become the master bedroom. A reinforced floor was laid in the bathroom area, with electric underfloor heating and then screeded over and tiled with 600mm x 300mm marble floor tiles. The walls were lined with tongue & groove panelling and painted to wainscot level, with the walls and ceiling painted above after restoration of old plaster. Glass tiles were applied above the panelling around a mirror which was fitted above the basin. A circular shower was constructed from scratch out of a wooden former clad in waterproof and flexible backing boards around a circular 900mm marble shower tray, then tiled in 25mm square marble mosaic tiles with an oak trim on the top. Toilet, basin, copper bath, shower head/valve, radiator all fitted. New ceiling lights fitted throughout and then the rest of the room decorated to match. The client is delighted and we are booked to return and decorate another bedroom shortly, plus manage the installation of 2 new staircases and a new kitchen.
