    Bathroom Specialists

    I’m considering getting my bathroom remodelled. What features/fittings should I focus on most? What are the most important and why?

    "Hi Pete,

    So it all comes down to what you like really.
    A lot of my customers at the moment are taking baths out and putting in big shower trays/enclosures.

    You would have to think about colour of tiles for the wall and floor. I can send you a couple of photos if you would like of completed work I have done this year.

    "I think it is worth consulting who makes the bathrooms. There are many aspects to consider. if you want to move certain things, it is worth asking a specialist if it is possible and how
    All the best

    Most important is toilet position as this will need a 4" outlet so the soil stack position is the governing factor for the position of the toilet. Then decide on whether it's a bath or a shower tray. if it's a shower tray then this will require an independent 11/2" waste pipe as it is low level and prone to " back filling". The determine what hot water system you have, so if a shower is being fitted you have good hot water pressure. A thermostatic mixer valve will give the best water pressure to feed the shower. If you have a low-pressure gravity system then you will need a pump to boost the hot water to the shower or an electric shower which will require a cable from the bathroom to the fuse board.
    The basin is fairly straight forward to position only an inch and a quarter waste pipe. Only other thing is how to heat the bathroom - is there room for a radiator or maybe underfloor heating is the way forward.

    Regards Steve"
