Removal of Old Bathroom Fixtures
Once the design plan is finalised, the next step in our process at Nottingham Bathroom Fitter involves the careful removal of your old bathroom fixtures. Our team is well-versed in the safe and efficient dismantling of existing fixtures to make way for the new walk-in shower. We ensure to minimise any disruption and maintain the utmost cleanliness during this process. All debris or waste generated from the removal is disposed of responsibly, adhering to all local environmental regulations. We take great care not to damage any surrounding surfaces, ensuring your bathroom is ready and primed for the new walk-in shower installation.
Installation of the Walk-In Shower
Following the removal of old fixtures, our proficient team at Nottingham Bathroom Fitter proceeds with the installation of your new walk-in shower. Using the design plan as a blueprint, we meticulously install each component of the shower, from the shower base and walls, to the showerhead, controls, and any additional accessories. Our commitment to precision ensures a flawless fit and an end result that is both functional and visually pleasing.
To ensure longevity and optimum performance, we use only premium-quality materials and state-of-the-art installation techniques. Each stage of the installation process is carried out with utmost care and respect for your property, minimizing disruption and maintaining cleanliness.

What To Consider When Installing A Walk in Shower?
When planning to install a walk-in shower, there are several key factors to consider.
Frequently Asked Questions About Walk In Showers
How long will it take to install a walk in shower in my home?
The time it takes to install a walk-in shower can vary based on several factors such as the complexity of the design, the condition of your existing bathroom, and the specific features of your new shower. At Nottingham Bathroom Fitter, we typically complete the installation process within one to two weeks. This includes the removal of old fixtures, installation of the new walk-in shower, and all finishing touches. However, we strive to minimise disruption to your daily routine by working efficiently and maintaining a clean and organised workspace. Please note that this is a general estimate and the exact timeline may vary depending upon your specific project. To get a more accurate timeline, do not hesitate to contact us for a free initial consultation.
Is a walk-in shower cheaper than a wet room?
When it comes to cost, a walk-in shower is typically less expensive than a full wet room. This difference is primarily due to the complexity of the installation process. Wet rooms require comprehensive waterproofing or 'tanking' of the whole room, which can be labour-intensive and costly. On the other hand, walk-in showers only need specific areas to be waterproofed, making the process quicker and more cost-effective. Additionally, wet rooms often require more extensive alterations to existing plumbing and drainage, further adding to the cost. However, it's important to note that while initial costs may be higher for a wet room, they can add significant value to your home, potentially offering a greater return on investment in the long term. As always, costs can vary depending on the size, design, and chosen materials, so we recommend contacting Nottingham Bathroom Fitter for a detailed quote tailored to your specific requirements.ere to edit.
Will a walk in shower add value to my property?
Yes, adding a walk-in shower to your property can significantly increase its value. Buyers today appreciate the convenience, accessibility, and sleek look of walk-in showers, making them a highly sought-after feature in modern homes. They not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom but also offer practical benefits such as easy maintenance and improved accessibility, especially beneficial for older adults or those with mobility issues. Furthermore, if the walk-in shower is designed with high-quality materials and professional installation - like the services offered by Nottingham Bathroom Fitter - it can be a compelling selling point that sets your property apart. While the exact impact on property value can vary based on market conditions and individual homebuyer preferences, a well-executed walk-in shower is generally considered a worthwhile investment for your home.
What is the difference between a walk-in shower and a step in shower?
A walk-in shower and a step-in shower are two popular choices for modern bathrooms, each offering its own set of advantages. The primary distinction between them lies in the access design. A walk-in shower, as the name suggests, allows you to walk straight into the shower enclosure without any obstruction. It typically features a flush or nearly flush floor transition, providing an open, seamless look and making it an excellent choice for people with mobility challenges.
Conversely, a step-in shower, sometimes also known as a traditional shower, includes a small step or raised threshold that needs to be crossed to enter the shower area. While this design may not be as accessible as a walk-in shower, the raised edge can serve as an extra water barrier, helping to contain water within the shower area and prevent splashes.
In terms of aesthetics and space, walk-in showers often lend a more modern and spacious feel to the bathroom, as they frequently come with clear glass partitions and minimalistic design elements. Step-in showers, on the other hand, can be more traditional in design but can also be customised to match a variety of styles.
When making a choice between a walk-in and a step-in shower, one should consider factors such as bathroom size, personal mobility, design preference, and budget. Nottingham Bathroom Fitter can provide expert guidance to help you make the right choice that best suits your needs and lifestyle.
How do walk-in showers not get water everywhere?
One common question we often receive at Nottingham Bathroom Fitter is "How do walk-in showers prevent water from splashing everywhere?" The answer lies in careful planning and intelligent design. Firstly, walk-in showers are typically designed with a slight slope towards the drain, ensuring water flows away efficiently rather than pooling on the floor. Secondly, the use of glass panels or shower screens helps to contain water spray within the designated shower area. In some designs, a 'wet zone' is created where the shower head is positioned, limiting the reach of water to other areas of the bathroom. Lastly, strategic placement of fixtures, use of water-resistant materials, and appropriate sealing contribute to the watertight integrity of the shower. These elements together help to keep the rest of your bathroom dry and safe. At Nottingham Bathroom Fitter, we pay meticulous attention to these details to ensure your walk-in shower is both functional and beautiful.
Do I need planning permission for a walk in shower
Installing a walk-in shower typically falls under permitted development, which means that it usually doesn't require planning permission. However, if you live in a listed building or in a conservation area, you may need to obtain permission before making such alterations to your property. Additionally, if the installation involves structural changes to the building or a significant change in the use of a room (for instance, turning a bedroom into a bathroom), you may need building regulations approval. It's always wise to check with your local authority or a professional, such as Nottingham Bathroom Fitter, to ensure you are compliant with all necessary regulations. It's important to remember that failing to adhere to planning and building regulations can result in fines and may affect the future saleability of your property.
Are walk-in showers hard to clean?
Walk-in showers are often perceived as easier to clean compared to their traditional counterparts, primarily due to their seamless and modern design. The absence of a step or raised threshold eliminates corners and crevices where dirt and grime can accumulate, making cleaning more straightforward. Glass panels used in walk-in showers are typically treated with a protective coating that repels water and reduces the build-up of soap scum and limescale, further easing the cleaning process. However, as with any bathroom fixture, maintaining a walk-in shower requires regular cleaning to keep it looking its best. At Nottingham Bathroom Fitter, we can provide expert advice on the care and maintenance of your walk-in shower, including recommended cleaning products and techniques to keep your shower sparkling clean and hygienic.
What Are Mobility Walk-In Showers?
Mobility walk-in showers are specially designed shower enclosures that cater to individuals with mobility challenges. They typically feature a barrier-free entry, allowing for easy wheelchair access or facilitating those who may find stepping over a threshold challenging. Other features often include slip-resistant flooring, strategically placed grab bars, and seating options, all of which contribute to a safer and more comfortable showering experience. Some models may also include adjustable shower heads or handheld sprayers for added convenience. These showers prioritise functionality and safety, without compromising on style or comfort. Nottingham Bathroom Fitter specialises in installing mobility walk-in showers, providing expert advice and quality service to ensure the end product is tailored to meet individual needs and preferences while enhancing the overall aesthetic of your bathroom.
