Bathroom and wet room installation in Hampstead, north London

This was how we transformed an empty space into a high end bespoke bathroom for the master bedroom of the property.

Our client lives in a courtyard mews house in leafy Hampstead, London.

He wanted to use the full services that LH Gas Ltd can offer, from design through construction and fitting to completion.

The area for conversion was an empty room containing a staircase from the floor below. Our design team, in consultation with the client, drew up the plans to move the staircase and install a master bathroom with a wet room area.

Converting the room

Our first task was to remove the staircase and build a joisted floor section in its place, giving us a solid floor foundation to work on.  Next came the fixing of the wall panels using KERDI boards, which are specifically designed for wet room installations. The panels come already waterproofed, which means they only require tanking work where they intersect.

When the panels were up, the pipe work and electrical points were installed to fit the design and layout plans and we began the installation. This included a free standing roll top bath with floor mounted FLOVA bath taps, wall mounted FLOVA bi-directional shower valve with overhead and handheld head, and a high quality ANCONA  column radiator from The Radiator Company. Then finally a bespoke glass screen supplied by HERTFORD GLASS.  The room was now ready to be tiled.

Finishing touches

Our client had taken the advice of the LH Gas design team and visited PENTAGON TILES, of Harlow, where they could take advantage of our full trade discount. They selected a stunning light grey textured tile for the room and attractive mosaic tiles for the wet room floor area. Once the tiles were installed, the room was ready for the final fixing and silicone sealing of all the sanitary-ware.

Wet room installation

While we were at this property we also carried out an additional wet room conversion in the original bathroom, which was too small and didn’t work well with the house.  Once again we used KERDI BOARDS to waterproof the room and our client decided to use the same tiles as those in the master bathroom conversion, to maintain a common design theme. The only subtle change was that they used the wall tiles on the floor as well, to give the room a smoother flowing look.

In the wet room area of this second bathroom we installed a LINEAR waste. This is the ideal solution for level access showering because the floor former can be installed on an existing concrete or timber floor.  LINEAR waste is also good for bigger wet room areas and showers with a large water output, incorporating a decorative metal grating or tile insert option for a discreet minimal appearance.

Happy clients!

Once we had completed both rooms for our client LH Gas Ltd were pleased to receive their positive feedback. They were delighted with their new rooms and said that the end result was even better than they had expected.
