Bathroom to wet room conversion in Ware, Hertfordshire

We are always thrilled to be asked to work on a new project for a previous customer!

LH Gas had already carried out a bathroom renovation for the clients. Now they asked us to return to carry out a bathroom to wet room conversion on their other existing bathroom.

Theirs was an older house in Ware, Hertfordshire that carried it’s charm throughout, whilst the owners added their own modern style to the property. The owners wanted the style of this wet room to be very modern and high-end luxury.

The LH Gas team designed the interior, trying to achieve the best layout possible. The owners wanted a very spacious feel. With the customer in agreement with the design and layout, the work was able to start.

Installation

Like all our renovations, the installation started with the removal of all old existing sanitary ware and taking the room back to basics. In this case, the foundations for the room took longer than usual as the property was a very old building, with uneven walls and floors.

Using stud frame, all walls were built and then clad using 18mm ply-wood in wet areas, and 12mm moisture proof plasterboard in non-wet areas. The floor was clad using ply-wood and then a Mitra-Mat movement mat was installed, to allow heat expansion and natural movement in timber. Underfloor heating was also to be installed at a later stage of the project.

All plumbing pipes and fixtures were installed in place ready for the sanitary ware to be installed, after the tiling and decorating had been completed and a shower tray installed.

Wet room shower trays are also known as shower tray formers, and provide the necessary slope for drainage solution. These trays are covered with a final floor finish such as tiles or vinyl floor, enabling a continuity of design throughout the wet room area.

The tiles chosen for this room were perfect for the design. For the wet areas, a dark-coloured texture tile was chosen. The floor had a light smooth-finish tile complementing each other perfectly and giving the room a light and spacious feel. The other walls in the room were painted in a natural colour from the Farrow and Ball colour chart, using their bathroom paint. All wood-work was painted in white using the Farrow and Ball wood paint.

The sanitary ware was from PURA range. The WC was a wall hung pan with a hidden cistern. The basin was surface mounted vanity basin, located on a luxury dark coloured wall hung drawer unit. Above was a gorgeous large two door wall hung mirrored cabinet.

The shower was a luxury overhead shower and a two-way shower valve and hand held shower. A top-end chrome towel rail was chosen that worked well with the room as it had a more modern look. To give the final touch, a large bespoke shower screen was made for the room by Hertford Glass.
