The Shower Doctor

Originally, the shower doctor was called to inspect a leaking shower recess in the main bathroom of this recently- purchased surrey hills home. the company discovered that the floor was on such an angle that water was running from the recess and out into the bathroom each time the shower was used.

While this had the immediate and obvious problem of a daily flooded bathroom, the hidden impacts of this type of construction fault can be serious – from lifting tiles and rotting flooring to encouraging termites into the home.

After running rigorous leak detection tests, it was established that the original construction of the flooring needed to be corrected. the new owners decided to take the opportunity to bring forward their plans of updating the entire bathroom.

Taking the bathroom right back to its bones, new joists and bearers were installed to begin the corrective work that the room required. one of the greatest preventers of leaking in a wet area is a sturdy floor. From here, the shower doctor straightened the old timber walls in preparation for the rectified edge tiles that would encompass a large portion of the room.

With a growing family, it was important that the owners’ children each had their own space in the bathroom to create a harmonious system during busy morning schedules. this was achieved by the addition of separate identical vanities that sit side-by-side, split by a beautiful stone feature wall that adds an extra bit of personality to the space.

The room now features a modern freestanding bath and a generously-sized shower with a custom toughened glass screen and a well-proportioned rain showerhead. to complement the new bathroom, strategically positioned downlights and hanging lights create a warm and elegant ambience.
