Bathroom Refit: Sebastopol

A customer contacted us after being referred by a friend (word of mouth is a major driving force for our business, which is why we always ensure customer satisfaction on any job.).
The project remit was quite simple – remove the dated and inadequate existing bathroom suite, clear the tiles from the walls, and fit a stunning new bathroom complete with steam shower, granite floor tiles, new wash hand basin and toilet.

Clearing the way on a new bathroom refit. Tiles removed, lets get started!

    Day 6-7: That X-Factor!

    The finished articleShower, sink and toilet in. Grouting and finishing touches complete. A job well done and a very happy customer.

The job took a little over a week from start to finish, delayed slightly due to unforeseen issues. Upon removing the old floor tiles, a previous bathroom leak had caused some floorboards to rot, hence these needed to be replaced before the new floor could be laid.
DB installations took care of everything, except for the electrician, as the customer chose to use their own electrician who had done work for them in the past. In the space of seven days, this modestly sized room has gone from an eyesore (by the customers own admission), to their favourite room in the house!
