1. The tiles
When fitting a bathroom, you might well be looking to fit tiles to either the floor or walls, perhaps even both. First, clean the bare walls or floor thoroughly to remove any particles. Next, "dry fit" the tiles. Starting at the wall's or floor's centre, add the tile adhesive. Then add the tiles atop the adhesive on the walls and floor. Allow the tiles to dry overnight. Next, remove the tile spaces and apply the grout. Finally, use caulk to seal the tiles' borders.
2. The bathtub
While this can be a somewhat complex task, doing enough planning can make it easier. Before you start, get all your tools together and perform any measurements that you need to make. Use a pencil to make any necessary marks clearly on the wall, so you can reference them. It may be necessary to install new supply pipes before installing the bathtub.
Here are the guidelines for installing the bathtub. As always, ensure that you have all the tools that you'll need for the job. First attach the feet to the tub. Then you'll need to fit the taps. The next step is to fit the unit for waste and overflow. Afterwards, position pencil marks on the wall, to verify that the bathtub is level. Then support the bathtub by bolstering the floor. Finally, place a waterproof seal between the bathtub and the adjoining walls.
3. The basin
Before you begin switch off the water supplies that lead to the taps for hot and cold water. If you're installing a pedestal, place the basin evenly onto the pedestal first. Next, you'll need to drill the holes and put the plugs in. Afterwards, position the washers atop the sink's screw holes, and then screw the basin to the wall. Next, link the bottle trap to the pipe for wastes. Afterwards, attach the flexible connectors to the water supply pipes. Finally, add a waterproof sealant surrounding the joint between the sink and the floor or wall.
4. The toilet
The first step is to carefully remove the old toilet. This process will differ whether you're removing a pan containing a down or horizontal waste outlet – so it's crucial to review the steps carefully before starting. Likewise, you'll need to review how to install the new toilet to either a down or horizontal waste outlet. However, regardless of which type of waste pipe you'll be using, experts suggest that you first attach the pan to the cistern. Finally, you'll need to fit the toilet seat.
The bottom line is that the time needed to fix an entire bathroom will likely take a maximum of one month. Some of the most important steps include designing the bathroom, ordering the materials, removing all materials and appliances, adding the new materials and appliances, and cleaning up. However, keep in mind that any hang-ups could lengthen the time needed to perform any of those tasks.
