Well, the renovation is well under way. We have knocked a wall down between what was the kitchenette and the cramped shower room, to create a much more luxurious bathing space entered from the hall.
We are creating a walk-in shower, the space is quite tight, but by choosing a long, narrow shower tray and a fixed shower screen, we are creating a very comfortable shower experience. This Matki-One wet room panel 1100mm with a single wall brace, depicted above, is perfect. All these products are available from ukBathrooms,
Here are our plans, above, we are using a long, narrow shower tray and a fixed glass panel. The range of products available from ukBathrooms are ideal for the bespoke solution we are after.
This JT Fusion low profile rectangular shower tray 1700 x 700mm is perfect.
A back to wall wc would be ideal but they are more expensive, both to buy and install and trickier to maintain if something goes wrong…
For all those reasons a Vitra Zentrum Close coupled WC £135.85 will be better.
This Crosswater Glide ii vanity unit and basin is both practical and beautiful. It provides much needed storage. It is 700mm wide and 450mm deep, at £714, it is a designer price tag, but it will add a touch of luxury to our apartment.
To save money we are looking carefully at acrylic shower panels. They are stunning and I understand they work really well and can be better value than tiles, especially when you take into account labour costs. We are planning to lay white ceramic tiles on the floor though.
I cannot wait to show you. We might even be renting our apartment out!
