Bathroom renovation story of every house

It was a space reserved for domestic workers, located on the top floor of an old building in Ostend. Small windows, dark rooms, completely obsolete. Until Iris and her companion stumble upon it… With their architect, they drew up Bathroom renovation plans. And for the bathroom, they trusted Van Marcke.“The location was fantastic, as for the apartment it had huge potential,”

“This is an old apartment building with a wide facade and sea view. When we bought, we knew what we were getting into: there was going to be quite a bit of demolition work. The many walls and small windows had to disappear to be replaced by a large sliding glass door down to the floor, in order to offer a magnificent view of the sea. "Advice for interior design and installer: the Van Marcke touch

“I took my Bathroom renovation plans under my arm and went to a Van Marcke Inspirations showroom. I knew what I wanted - a walk-in shower and a long, narrow cabinet - but that didn't stop an inside advisor from helping me finalize the product selection. The maintenance aspect was important to me, so I inquired about it at length. "

“The installer recommended by Van Marcke first came to take all the final measurements. This is a very important moment, because like this, you can be sure that everything will fit perfectly into your bathroom space. Imagine, for example, the shower tray: the installer knows the dimensions he can have and takes into account the loss of space due to the tiling of the walls. It checks the space available for the drain pipes. So many intermediate steps, but essential. "

The renovation

Iris: “The toilet was not in the Bathroom renovation and we didn't change anything. Merging the two rooms would have been a solution, it would have created a larger space. But when a lot of people come to stay in the apartment, it is convenient to have a toilet separate from the bathroom. A challenge because the dimensions of the latter are very small, barely 2.35 m by 1.57 m. We removed the tub and replaced it with a walk-in shower. There is also a cabinet with a sink and a cabinet with a mirror. "
What should you pay particular attention to when renovating a small bathroom? “Make sure the glass wall of your walk-in shower is long enough that your bathroom doesn't get flooded every time you shower. Keep enough space between the glass wall and your sink cabinet. Otherwise, cleaning your wall will be very difficult there. "

10 mistakes to avoid when laying bathroom tiles

Whether you are tiling the bathroom shower or the bathroom floor on your own, don't fall for these common pitfalls of tiling. Keep the following common mistakes in mind as you work to make the process easier and your results professional. Remember to consult a professional tiler if you need help. Choosing the wrong adhesive Use a waterproof adhesive for any tile around a bathtub or shower. Even the best-fitting tiles can let some water seep into the adhesive, and the non-waterproof adhesive will break down and crumble, eventually causing the tiles to crack and break. Do not forget that water can reach the adhesive in the form of condensation. Buy too few tiles You must buy more tokens than you think you need. The best compromise between cost and practice is to get 15-20% more than you expect to use. This insures against breakage, miscalculations and difficulties in cutting to size.
