Bathroom to wet room conversion in Royston, Hertfordshire

Here are some pictures of another beautiful conversion of a bathroom to a wet room, designed and installed by LH Gas Ltd in Royston, Hertfordshire.

Our client lives in a stylish modern home and wanted a bespoke new wet room to match. The LH Gas design team offered a choice of several different layouts to get the best possible result.

Once the plans had been agreed, the first stage of the conversion was to remove all the old sanitary-ware, flooring and tiles and even the plasterboard and plywood walls. This is because LH Gas believe it is vital to create a new foundation and structure for the waterproof tanking of a wet room.

New 18mm ply walls were installed in the wet areas and moisture-proof plaster boarding in the non-wet areas.  Plywood flooring was laid, along with a DITRA movement mat, which allows for heat expansion and the natural movement of wood.

 

Tanking the room

 

Underfloor heating was also installed and the plumbing pipes were moved into new positions including the hot and cold water supply, waste and soil pipe for the WC. Then the room was the tanked. This process makes the whole area completely waterproof, using a specialist BAL tanking kit – one of the best and most reliable in the industry.

It is a flexible and seamless waterproof tanking system, using acrylic primer, polyester matting to level any uneven areas, an acrylic-based flexible coating for total waterproof protection before tiling, and finally BAL tape to bridge gaps and reinforce points of weakness.

Once the room was tanked the shower tray was installed, ensuring that the drainage was correctly channelled towards the waste pipe. The walls and floor were then ready to be tiled.

 

All new fittings

 

Our client chose large smooth tiles in dark grey with matching grout to complement the style of the new room.

After that, new sanitary-ware was installed, including a wall hung basin drawer unit with luxury mixer tap, a wall hung hidden cistern WC, a two-way thermostatic shower valve along with a large overhead shower and a hand-held shower and hose.

Finally the finishing touches — a towel rail and toilet roll holder from the Pura range and a bespoke glass shower screen supplied by Hertford Glass.

The end result was a room which fully met our client’s wish for a modern bespoke bathroom to wet room conversion.
