The floor was tiled with slate effect ceramic tiles and a mid grey grout. A new graphite vanity unit and mirror cabinet were installed and in contrast, the bath panel was white.

Due to the position of the cast iron shared stack pipe, we built a small tiled box area to hide all the pipework. A new close couple toilet was then installed. The boxing created a handy shelf area.

Bathroom Installation (Cream / Sand) Linden Road, Bicester

Installed by BPI’s bathroom fitting team based in Bicester, this was both a surprising and challenging bathroom project to work on. Our original brief was that the shower was leaking and that the shower enclosure needed retiling and the floor too.

On stripping out the shower enclosure and taking up the first few floor tiles, a far larger problem was discovered. There had been a serious leak from the toilet and the chipboard floor and timbers under the tiles was almost completely rotten. The plasterboard on the walls lower down was also black with mould on the outer face due to some incorrect works when previously installed.

We stripped this bathroom back to the concrete block and reboarded the entire room. New pipework was run along the concrete floor and we then installed a new chipboard floor. 10mm cement board was installed over the top of this chipboard to form a sturdy, watertight surface for tiling.

A new stud wall was build to accommodate the shower enclosure again and once boarded, we tiled the shower enclosure. The floor was also tiled.

Another stud wall was built and a new concealed cistern was fitted behind with a push button. This was followed by a new back to wall toilet. The existing basin and towel radiator were reinstalled.

Wooden effect slimline bathroom units

Bathroom Installation & Tiling (Grey Wooden) Bodicote, Banbury

Installed by BPI’s bathroom fitting team and external tiler based in Bicester, this was a great project to work on as we completely transformed an interesting downstairs shower room. This was a challenging bathroom to fit owing to the shape. Whilst it is quite a large room, it is narrow. The narrow shape made it tricker when positioning the toilet and radiator.

The existing suite was removed and the existing surface radiator pipes were chased into the wall so the tiles could cover them. The shower area was re-boarded prior to tiling to help ensure the best watertight surface for tiling.

The shower enclosure was fully tiled and the walls were tiled up to half way with wood effect plank tiles. A light grey grout was chosen as this complemented the finish and does not show dirt as clearly as white.

A brand new concealed cistern toilet and basin over vanity unit were fitted in brown. A slimline worktop was installed across both units. A Burlington mixer shower with drencher were installed with a pivot door shower screen.

The floor was thoroughly prepared using several levelling compounds and then fully tiled. This tiling was also carried into the entrance hallway of the house.

Complete Guide To Planning Your Bathroom

Whether you are looking to update the family bathroom or create a luxurious ensuite, it is important to have a plan in mind.

Choosing the right tradespeople and retailers to help you complete the work can be difficult – there are so many choices! The team at Bicester Property Interiors have been fitting bathrooms in the Bicester, Oxford and Brackley areas for many years, and we have created this handy guide to help you plan the perfect bathroom.

1.    Know What You Need

Your bathroom is a more well-used space than you might have thought – so making sure it fits your needs is important. Knowing exactly how this space will be used will inform all your decisions in creating your perfect bathroom. 

Are you looking to install ‘his-and-her’ sinks, a spa bath or a separate shower? 

Do you need to make space for storage? Towels, toiletries, medical supplies? Having appropriate storage for your essential bathroom items is a good idea, whatever the space will be used for. 

TOP TIP: Consider what use your bathroom will have. Is it a family bathroom or an ensuite? Each will have different requirements.

2.    Consider Available Space

This is a really important step in the planning process. 

You need to know what floorspace you have, and you want to be able to maximise that space to include all the fixtures and storage that you need. To do this, creating a floorplan and representations of your sink, bath, shower and storage will help you visualise how the bathroom will work.

Make sure you consider plumbing in your planning process – inlets and outlets. 

TOP TIP: To make sure you are utilising the space in the most efficient way, it might be a good idea to speak to a bathroom designer – they have expert knowledge and experience that can help you make the most out of your ideas.

3.    Set a Budget

Before you get into choosing your fixtures and fittings, having a good idea of a budget will help you make decisions about what to choose.

Think about not only the cost of the bath, sink and shower, but also costs related to fitting, plumbing and decorating, too.

TOP TIP: Consider using a company that includes all the tradespeople you need and offers a complete service. This will make budgeting much easier as all the work will be included in one price and one place. 

4.    Choose Your Style

You are the imagination behind your perfect bathroom, so this is the step where you can get your ideas to come to life.

Choosing the colour scheme, tiles and flooring for your bathroom is where the magic happens.

Will you want angular, clean lines or softer, more rounded edges? Do you want luxurious marble or lino flooring? Are your tiles going to be mosaic or more plain? Do you want a grand Victorian bathroom, or something more modern?

The opportunities are endless, and you are only bound by your own ideas.

TOP TIP: To get some ideas and spark your own imagination, visit some bathroom showrooms. Seeing the range of designs and fixtures that are available can help you make some decisions.

5.    Choose Your Fitter

Finding the right team to help you create your perfect bathroom is hard – there are so many choices available and you need to be confident that you are getting it right.
