A satisfying straight swap bathroom job, for a very satisfied customer.

Satisfaction. One of the driving forces behind what we do. On paper, this straight swap bathroom is probably one of the easiest we’ve done for quite some time. However, it still gave us plenty of satisfaction. Why? Because this project wasn’t the first we’d completed for this customer.

We take pride in our work and make every effort to present a bathroom with the ‘wow’ factor. It is deeply satisfying when a previous project that did just that, presents you with another project. This customer contracted Parkstone Yorkshire to swap a boiler and renovate the en-suite some time ago. Our standard of work for these two projects ensured the customer didn’t look elsewhere. Thus, good quality is by far the best marketing!

We only faced one major job on this project, and that was to knock down the dividing wall between the cloakroom and the bathroom. This creates so much space it makes the new bathroom airy and light, and far less claustrophobic. We installed a privacy wall to hide the toilet from view when bathing, which also housed the plumbing for the thermostatic shower over the bath. The sink was part of a gorgeous vanity unit on the adjacent wall to the bath.

Even though this was a straight swap bathroom, creating clean lines demanded our full concentration. There aren’t many projects we have done, in a small space, that combine 4 different wall coverings! For the bulk of the wall space, we fixed a classic white rectangular tile with dark grey grout. The focal feature of this bathroom isn’t a fancy bath, but actually the wash basin vanity unit. Using two contrasting wall coverings running in parallel to the sink, vertically up the wall, we created an incredibly dynamic splash back area. Finished with a gorgeous mirror and wall-mounted down lighting.

The white tiling continues floor to ceiling on the window wall, leading to the bath. The same large square tiles used behind the vanity unit cover the bath wall. The mirroring continues as the small tiles used above the vanity unit fill the shower stud wall. White tiles finish the bathroom around the toilet to waist height with a light brown painted top half.

Finally, wood effect flooring completes a very satisfying job! If you live in the Leeds area and would like any advice or a quotation on a new bathroom space, please get in touch.
