Bathrooms and Laundry

Shower head positioning
Cheers guys. Glad I'm not crazy. All of what you have done sounds logical. I'll say we want it at that short end. A hob for the pipes isn't the end of the world.
New Shower Base onto existing tiles
We had a leaking shower base. The plumber and the tiler simply covered the exisitng tiles with new membrane and new tiles, and that was that! It cosst us $600 for the…

Feature tiles help needed
Oh gosh I spent WEEKS and WEEKS agonising over exactly this - we just renovated (or have almost finished anyway) our small master bathroom/ensuite and I vacillated for…
Shower screen issue
My semi frameless still has a 2mm gap between the door and fixed panels.
Little water gets out.
Most of the water that escapes from a fully frameless comes from the bottom.
The 1970's called. They want their bathroom back.
If the OP is considering a wet area in their master bathroom with both shower and bath in there then for a start it must…
Gloss floor tiles & size
You will find it impossible to scratch polished porcelain tiles. If you drag a file cabinet over them then yes it will scratch but so will matt finish tiles. Matt finish…
Bulk tile cutting services?
The cuts would be exactly the same as when you buy them, most 600x300 tiles are 600x600 tiles cut in half. That aside, I would like some…
Since you've already decided, will you just post some pics of your finished product? It would be much appreciated!
Tiling around bath

Floor to ceiling tile question
The other problem will be your cornice. If you have floor to ceiling tiling the cornice is installed after the tiles.
If you do the tiling after the cornice you lose the…
taps (more expensive vs. budget)
The de zincification is what i think may be called DR Brass and all taps must have it to get teh Aussie Stamp. If the AUS Standards stamp was not required I could have…
Hi all, We're in the midst of finalising some renovation plans on our family home and I am not 100% sure of what to do with our laundry and bathroom. Neither are huge but…

Pics needed of a walk in shower
Yeah - so basically, instead of a Hebal hob that you have to step over I am wondering if you can just use a length of angle aluminum to build up the wet area by about 40 -…

Ensuite bathroom Reno
I'm starting to get cold feet with the subway tiles. I don't think I would be able to keep them clean!
I have found some 300 x 600 white tiles for the walls almost the…
Bathroom sliding door falling apart
Does anyone have any advice on how to fix or what to do with a mirrored bathroom door backing splitting? I live in Brisbane and the change in weather from cold to hot has…
Assuming there is space on that side for some sort of clothes line, I think that's fine. It's not huge, but I think it's fine especially if the dryer is wall-mounted.

Some start a few topics, get them answered but never thank people or bother to…

Window / mirror over vanity problem
