Bathroom Plumbing

The supply of water and drainage in a well-designed bathroom should be almost invisible to the eye.  Pipe work should be concealed in walls and in vanity basins.

If walls and/or tiles are removed, be sure to replace the plumbing.  Shower combos and all hot and cold pipe work should be replaced regardless, as they notoriously leak when the new bathroom is completed!!  Note where the wall studs are and think about towel rails, toilet roll holders, and toilet cistern.  Maybe, fix some noggins in to ensure good fixings.

If the bathroom is small, consider tiling in a lighter colour or white, as darker colours close a room in and make it appear smaller.  Mirrors are also a good idea.  Make good use of lighting, by installing bright lights to give the appearance of a larger room.

Allow enough space for your shower, shower door, bathroom door (door swing), bath and toilet.  Bear in mind the practicalities of space by sitting on the toilet, getting out of the shower, entering the room etc.

Ventilation for a bathroom is essential, if there is no window or natural ventilation.

If your budget doesn’t extend to a complete renovation, then consider re-grouting and resealing grubby areas.  Replacing old tap ware is also a great, cheap way of a bathroom makeover.  If your toilet cistern is showing it’s age, then consider just replacing the cistern and seat.  Quite often, a good clean and polish will put a shine on the ceramic toilet pan.  The new cistern will be a dual flush (3L & 4.5L flush), WELS rated and much more energy efficient, thereby saving you money on unnecessary water consumption.

Pathfinder Plumbing can also install a full range of disabled toilets, grab rails, disabled showers c/w seats and thermostatic mixing valves.
