Creating a shower room


Single cloakroom
New en-suite shower room










Over the last few months we have been renovating a 1950’s bungalow which was last refurbished in the 1980s. The propertyshower room ensuite is a spacious 2 bedroom bungalow with a full bathroom (originally it only had a bath and basin, a toilet was added in 1989) and separate toilet with no basin. Whilst this suited the former elderly occupants times have moved on and although the cloakroom was small the position of it in the property meant it was ideally situated to become an en-suite shower room to the front bedroom. The cloakroom however was only 1.9m long and 0.9m wide.

The Proposal

To remove the single toilet and replace with a shower, corner toilet, basin, electric towel rail and heater.

Creating the idea

Want to see how we achieved this? Now view the short video which shows the progress from the beginning to a fantastic result which has transformed a dated, uninviting cloakroom to a fully functional modern shower room with good ventilation and natural light. We kept costs to a minimum by retaining the existing UPVC window, door furniture and lighting. The shower tiles were chosen to acknowledge the obvious 1950s styling of the property.

The shower room sanitary ware came from Victorian Plumbing and Bathrooms . We had great service and prices from both these suppliers. The paint was Dulux Misty Mirror Bathroom paint and the tiles were Bumpy White from Wickes


We are delighted with the results of our toilet conversion and we feel it proves that even a room with the smallest footprint can with a little imagination and knowhow achieve a result that can almost certainly add value and comfort to your home.
