Tired Wetroom to Beautiful Ensuite Renovation

Completion of Ensuite renovation - shower enclosure

This wetroom was tired and in need of a total makeover. The previous reno had included making the ensuite into a wetroom. The entire room had been tiled and a stud wall erected between the WC and the shower. The original slate tile floor had been over-tiled with travertine mosaic tiles.

Cloak-room makeover

WC before renovation works have beeen started

This cloak-room has remained the same since the house was built in 2000. It was uninspiring then with all the inlet and waste pipes unflatteringly on display below the wall hung corner basin. Now was the time to give the cloak-room a makeover and give it a more contemporary feel.
