Airing Cupboard Re-modelling Job

The wall had to be carefully cut to size before being made good to.

 This was a former airing cupboard within a bathroom. Our customer wanted a shower in her bathroom but didn't think it possible. It was.
We removed the door, door casing & architrave. The cupboard was then split in half with some timber studding. The other unseen half houses a central heating boiler and is now accessed by a door in the room behind.
A Mira 'Flight' shower tray with upstands was fitted and the walls boarded with 'Hardibacker' tile board. We had to be very careful not to damage the existing tiles as there were no spares.

Mira 'Discovery' built in shower with variable rail kit.

The natural stone tiles have been laid in a brick bond style on waterproof adhesive and sealed with waterproof grout. 

The dimensions of the tray are 800mm x 1000mm

The tiles go over the up-stand of the tray making it water tight before it is even sealed in.

Here's the finished job with the Mira 'Leap' pivot door in place and a new piece of matching skirting board across the front.

 The last picture is looking upwards at the ceiling. This was lowered and finished with a 12mm 'Fermacel' board. This can be painted directly onto without the need for wet plastering. Our electrician fitted an extractor fan ducted to outside and an LED light. The other fitting in the top of the picture is a sensor which eliminates the need for a light switch. As anyone steps into the shower the light comes on. When they step out it goes off. The extractor then carries on running for a couple of minutes to ensure all steam is removed.

If you'd like to discuss any such projects please do give us a call. We do all of the work ourselves with the exception of the electrics. We manage / programme the electrics but our NICEIC approved contractor carries it out.
