BATHROOMS

Bathroom make-overs require not just clarity and vision but the ability to apply numerous trades from plumbing, carpentry, electrics to tiling and decorating. A Project that Lemontrade welcomes since it really requires true collaboration with our clients from Design to the first flush!

CHECK OUT SOME OF OUR RECENT PROJECTS

 

ENSUITE BATHROOM

Originally a walk in wardrobe we were commissioned to undertake the build of an ensuite bathroom. Working with BuildingControl the wardrobe was converted to enhance the master bedroom with a modern, fresh ensuite. 
One of the biggest challenges was to plumb and square three walls to fit Cement Boards to ensure a waterproof enclosure and flat surfaces to fix Aqua-panel shower walls.

ELECTRIC SHOWER

10.5 KW Mira Shower with Air Boost technology to improve shower drench by 30%.

CUSTOM TOWER RAIL

using every bit of space with an elegant, tall but very slim towel rail.

GLASS BASIN BOWL

Maximising storage in the custom built vanity unit by fitting a counter top bowl.

 

FAMILY BATHROOM REFIT

An amazing commission where Lemontrade was entrusted to advise on all aspects of the project from look & feel and colour co-ordination through to the full rebuild which included fixing a number of unexpected 'issues'. A Luxury Vinyl Floor took the rebuild to a new level providing both a waterproof and highly practicable bathroom floor as well as a stunning grey oak boarding effect.

INITIAL BATHROOM 

Time to update the family bathroom to give a traditional, timeless room.

SHOWER PIPES

Setting in the feed pipes for an over the bath thermostatic mixer shower. Plastic sleeving prevents copper corrosion.

FLOOR  REPAIR

Leaking Pedestal had caused serious floor board decay over the years that had to be fixed.

NEW BATH & FRAME

Acrylic bath fitted with custom timber frame to provide mechanical support to bath and fixing for MDF bath panels.

FINISHED BATH

Bath panels in place, complete with mirror screws.

BASIN & LVT FLOOR

The finished traditional porcelain basin and grey oak vinyl floor.

 

BATHROOM UPGRADE 

An in progress project! Lemontrade was asked to come up with a revised design for the bathroom that included adding a shower and hand basin to the current room. To achieve this brief we had to reverse the swing of the door and much much more.......

INITIAL BATHROOM 

Room only has a toilet and bath. We need to replace plus add a shower and basin.

CUSTOM DOOR

To free up wall space for a basin to be fitted a new custom size door was built and then hung to open outwards.

STUDWORK WALL

The end wall of bathroom was made of lathe and plaster. To provide a stable and strong wall for the shower & tiles a stud wall was built.

PEV

Pipework for the shower, bath & basin installed. A Pressure Equalising Valve has been added to manage the hot & cold pressure differential.

TILING STARTS

Cement board joints taped and skimmed, tiling commences! Keeping all straight by using a laser level (see the laser red lines).

GROUTING

Not a severe case of mould, just part way through grouting.

NEW BASIN

Reversing the swing of door freed up the wall space for hand basin.

CLOSE COUPLED TOILET

The new stud work wall allowed a close coupled toilet to be fitted without major alterations to floor soil pipe.

OVER BATH SHOWER

Adding the PEV has resolved the water pressures, saved a lot of upheaval and made a thermostatic shower possible.

 

REPAIR RATES

Bathroom refit tasks generally are more demanding and call for greater skills. The charge for Bathroom refit work will be calculated at £25 per hour.

DESIGN TIP

Lay floorboards parallel to the longest wall of room to capitalise on making the room appear larger. Always lay floor tiles 'brick' style to avoid adjacent tile runs having all cross joints at same point. The slightest offset will create a wiggly line.
