If you’re having a new bathroom built, then you will need plastering over the existing brickwork. If you already have a plastered wall, it may require some work. Plaster provides a solid, seamless surface. Plaster designs are incredibly flexible, allowing any curves or arches that your bathroom may require.
Plaster is a very durable material. By plastering a wall, it creates a strong surface. The excellent abrasion resistance means that it won’t need much maintenance. Plaster won’t disintegrate if it’s exposed to a small leak, making it an invaluable material for a bathroom. Plaster also eliminates any irregularities that may be in the wall, such as board joints or protruding nails. Plaster creates a safe environment for anybody that uses the bathroom. Plaster is also incredibly cheap to buy. It’s possible to buy plaster in large bulk without breaking the bank.
There is always dust created during the plastering process and safety is one of our top priorities. Children and pets should be restricted from the work area, not only for their safety, but also so that any work doesn’t get damaged while its in one of the more fragile stages. We also ensure that we prevent any dust from infiltrating its way throughout the rest of the house.
If we are repairing any previous water damage, it is important that any leaks that we are causing are fixed. We make sure to tell you of any additional work is required other than the plastering.
Depending on where the specific wall is situated, it may be important to tile over the plaster. This can be especially useful if the wall is where a shower is going to be. Some people think that you can use water proof paint to secure the wall. Generally, these paints are only water resistant. Tile is a more reliable option than water resistant paint, although depending on how your layout is, these two can then work side by side.
This is possibly one of the most important part of any project. If water and electricity mix together, the effect can be deadly. The bathroom is one of the most dangerous rooms in a house when it comes to electrical safety. An electric shock in a bathroom is far more severe than it would be in any other room. Wet skin reduces the bodies resistance to electricity.
If an electrical device short circuits due to contact with water, it can cause damage to various electrical devices in the room. Fuses can blow, which sometimes require replacing for a price. It’s always better to not have any unnecessary electrical devices so that you can avoid danger that electricity and water can create.
There are special requirements for electrical installations as the majority of electrical work has to comply with Part P of any building regulations.
Electrical sockets are not allowed in bathrooms or shower rooms unless they can be fitted at least three metres from the shower or bath. The only exceptions are shaver supply units. Electrical shaver points must be a safe distance from the bath or shower so to avoid any splashes of water.
Enclosed lights are a much safer choice than ones that hang down. If a light fitting is not enclosed then it should always be out of reach from someone who is either using, or wet from using the bath or shower. Light switches are a danger because of both dampness and wet hands. The switch should either be outside of the room or be activated by a ceiling mounted pull cord.
Central heating is one of the safest ways to keep a bathroom warm but we do understand that sometimes people prefer to have a heater and/or towel rail. An electric heater must be at a safe distance from the bath or shower.
Any electric and gas water heaters situated in the bathroom must be fixed and permanently wired. The only exception is when they are powered by a socket that is fitted at least three metres from a bath or shower. Again, a pull cord or a switch outside the bathroom is the ideal way to control an electric heater.
Any electric showers must be supplied by its own circuit which feeds directly from your fuse box.
It’s vitally important to note that you should never bring mains powered appliances such as hair dryers, heaters or radios into a bathroom. These devices are not made to run when com It is entirely possible to be severely injured or even killed.
Space is something that concerns a lot of people when it comes to bathrooms. With different products and accessories that are available on the market, its key to have somewhere to store them so that your bathroom doesn’t become cluttered.
Our team of joiners can create the perfect cabinets that are tailor made to fit perfectly in whatever space you have. They can be especially made to blend into the background of your bathroom so it doesn’t look like you have a cabinet there at all! A lot of additional storage can be designed so that it has multiple purposes. A standard cabinet situated above a sink can have a mirror built into it, making it so that you can make sure you look your best as you get ready for whatever the day has in store for you. There are different materials that suit different styles of bathroom. We make sure that we have a full understanding of what your design is before we start to add extra storage space. We also sit down with you to go through the various materials that are on offer.
The options are almost endless. You can choose from stools, wall mountings, shelving units and cabinets that can all be designed to the exact specifications you have in mind. We pride ourselves on taking on any design we receive. If it’s only an idea, call us today and we can give you a quote.
The bathroom is one the most popular rooms in a home where you can expect to find tiles. This is mainly due to the hygienic and water resistant qualities they have when compared to carpets, wallpaper and the majority of paints. Tiles can also add potential value to a bathroom, as well as offering some unique finishes which can’t be matched by any other material.
Bathrooms can easily accommodate multiple types of tiles including ceramic, porcelain, travertine or slate. It all comes down to personal preference and style that you want to achieve.
It’s key that your bathroom is a place of hygiene, which is one of the qualities that tiles can certainly offer. Tiles bring a fresh appearance, and the surfaces are very easy to wipe clean.
Tiles are some of the most waterproof things you can have in a bathroom area. You find tiles in areas where a bath or shower is situated. The wall area is also waterproofed to avoid any water damage that may occur behind the wall.
By carefully choosing tiles, you can make a small bathroom look bigger. Brighter coloured tiles reflect light more than darker colours, giving it an airy and spacious feel to your bathroom. You could also use the same colour wall tiles as the floor to provide a spacious effect.
Something worth considering is using natural stone tiles such as travertine, slate or marble. These stones create a much more natural feel than a standard tile would. These stones can create some absolutely amazing effects. Over the years, natural stone tiles have a sudden surge in popularity. Because of this, it’s entirely possible to purchase ceramic tiles with designs that replicate natural stone.
A lot of people ask if tiles will make the floor cold. Tiles actually retain heat, so you shouldn’t feel any cold on your feet. It can depend on the surface that is underneath the tiles. Tiling onto wood can create a warmer feel than tiles that are placed on top of concrete.
Undertile heating is a popular solution to warming floors as well as entire rooms. There are numerous benefits to undertile heating such as low running costs, more wall space due to not needing radiators, they are generally a more efficient way of heating a room. They are also a very appealing feature during winter seasons when it is particularly frosty in the morning.
