Demolishing The Old Bathroom
How to remodel a bathroom?
Before initiating the upgrade, the existing bathroom components, including sanitaryware, plumbing lines, and electrical wiring, will be carefully removed. Despite the potential for dust and dirt, this phase is essential for a clean slate. We will inspect and clean walls, ceiling, and flooring for any signs of mold or mildew.
Installing Plumbing Lines
A plumber will be enlisted to install plumbing lines according to the proposed sanitaryware layout. If opting for a wall-mounted commode, additional brickwork may be required to accommodate the concealed flush.
Bathroom Fan Wiring
A specialist will set up the electrical wiring based on the finalized layout, incorporating ceiling lights, alcove lights, mirror lights, shaving points, exhaust fans, switchboards, and geysers.
Place the showers and bathtub according to the layout, connecting them to the plumbing and ensuring a secure and watertight fit. If grab bars are part of your design for added safety, ensure the necessary reinforcements in the walls for future installation.
Painting Bathroom Tile Walls
The walls and ceiling are painted, especially if a floor to ceiling tiled surface is not part of the design. A satin-finish or semi-gloss paint, recommended by professionals, adds moisture resistance.
Tile Installation And Ceiling
With the plumbing and electrical work in place, the tile installation and skirting follow the proposed design. Flooring is then installed, ensuring the recommended slope for proper drainage. Once dry, the tile joints are sealed with grouting.
Bathroom Sink Installation
As the project nears completion, the plumber installs sanitaryware, including sinks and commodes. Faucets, mixers, hand showers, overhead showers, and bidet sprayers are also integrated at this stage.
Position the toilet, connecting it to the plumbing lines and ensuring a secure and functional installation.
Add storage solutions, such as shelves or cabinets, and fix bath accessories like soap dispensers, towel racks, and mirrors.
