If you have been using the traditional corner shower in your bathroom for several years, maybe it is the right time to change it by turning your bathroom into a modernized, secured and stylish one by installing the very popular and appealing walk in shower unit.
It is true that there are a lot of things that need to be considered in refurbishing your bathroom such as budget, materials that will be used, and size of the bathroom especially if it is very limiting. You don’t have to worry so much because in fact, there are a lot of walk in shower kits available in the market that are presented in different sizes, colors, makes, and styles that will surely fit your budget, plus they are easy to install. Here is a quick tip on how to install the shower kit in exchange of your old corner shower.
The first thing you have to do is to prepare all the materials that you will be needing for the project such as hammer, screws, screwdriver, the shower kit, tiles, electric drills, sealant, ceramic cements, and the like. You have to make sure that you have everything on hand so won’t encounter any hassle while doing the installation.
Next thing you have to do is to clear out the bathroom. You have to remove the tiles, the plaster and the corner shower and you have to prepare the entire base for your walk in shower. In clearing out the base, see to it that you won’t damage any of the pipelines or electric linings. In doing this, you have to make sure that you are wearing safety gears to avoid hurting yourself.
Once the base has been cleared out, you can now put in the kit in your bathroom. Assemble the walk in shower by following the instructions found in the manual that was provided by the kit’s manufacturer. Make sure that you are flowing and executing the instructions correctly. After installing the shower kit, you can cover it with newspaper in preparation for tiling the wall and the floor to prevent it from damage.
In setting up the tiles, you have to start from the center of the wall moving outwards, same thing in working with the tiling of the floor. See to it that you are using just the right amount of ceramic cement in placing your tiles and you also have to see to it that the placement of the tiles are of the same level and they are placed neatly.
If you are not confident enough to do this on your own, you can always ask assistance from contractors in renovating your bathroom.
