A multi-room job

We replaced the main bathroom and downstairs toilet.  The client chose to have half tiles and under floor heating in the main bathroom. Installing the  new quadrant shower involved moving a wall that formed the old shower opening up the room considerably. 

The En-suite was a refurbishment job as the old en-suite was leaking down into the kitchen.  The aqua board offered a clean solution matching with the existing tiles.

Bathroom, en-suite toilet and kitchen

Wehave replaced a bathroom, en-suite toilet and remodelled the kitchen and utility.

Notice the mosaic tiling and low level shower tray in the en-suite. The bathroom included extending it into one of the bedrooms to add more space. Finally, the wonderful oak kitchen with breakfast bar, American fridge and door through to the utility. The toilet was a new room created along with the utility hiding the pipes in the new walls.

The kitchen tiles look rather good too.


Notice the beautiful tiles from Anglo Italian tiles.

This job included moving the bath to the other side of the room.  Putting a new shower in the corner and installing a shower pump to serve this bathroom and the en-suite off the main bedroom.  Notice the new boxing in is tiled with a worktop and semi recessed basin and the toilet with a concealed cistern below the shelf.  Again the half tiles allow for the painted walls to pick up and enhance the shades in the tiles.

En-suite and WC

All the bathroom suite and tiles were sourced from Porcelenosa.  Notice the clean lines and mosaic tiles.  All the pipe work is hidden to establish the effect..

Rectified Tiles

In recent  years a new style of bathroom has emerged using what is called ‘Rectified Tiles’.  The growth of Porcelenosa in the retail market was a major catalyst for this.  The tiles are typically very large (1m in some cases) and have sharp edges creating clean lines with very thin lines of grout.  The bathroom fitments are often wall mounted with chrome bottle traps or basin/toilets that hang off the wall so no pipe work is shown at all.  The pictures here show the work of Mr Useful – Bathrooms to create such bathrooms.  Customers should note that this style of tile costs more to install because of the extra work involved.

Main bathroom and en-suite in the same house.

The customer wanted to have the same style in both with lovely tiles and the ornate border.

Both bathrooms have under floor heating and an electric element in the towel rails so that the towel rail can be used in the summer when the central heating is normally switched off. Both bathroom showers are powered by a pump in the airing cupboard.

Two lovely bathrooms.

And the En-Suite

Refurbishment Job

A straight forward replacement toilet and basin with vanity unit in downstairs toilet.

New ceiling with spot lights, repapered the wall with wall paper in keeping with the Victorian house. This job involved replacing the taps in the bath and basins and a new shower screen.  Refreshing the grouting on the wall and floor tiles and also notice the new stained glass window again in keeping with the period style of the house.

Customer Service

Paul Maguire from Mr Useful – Bathrooms prides himself on the level of customer service provided to customers.  For example the pictures below show the carpet protector used on all jobs to  safe guard your house.  If you are unhappy with anything he will do his best to put it right.  Recently, he changed a tile behind a toilet where the customer wanted it cut more tightly to the soil pipe.  He also arranged for a carpet fitter to attend a job to pull the carpet tight where a new carpet to tile door strip had been fitted and the carpet had a slight ripple in it. 

To Paul Maguire Customer Service Excellence is a priority.  After all it is your house!
