Schlüter Solutions Help to Create Statement Surrey Wetroom


creation of a sophisticated wetroom at a luxury home in Esher, Surrey. The owner was embarking upon a renovation and extension of his existing home. This included a refurbishment of the residence’s 4.8m x 2.7m master en-suite. Enlisting the services of Quell Bathrooms,


A


the client set out the fundamentals of what he wanted – bath, shower and double basin with storage. He then gave free reign to Managing Director of Quell, Vincent Pope, to come up with a few ideas from which the final design was selected. The resulting wetroom utilised a number


of different products from Schlüter-Systems, in order to ensure a sound finish for the client’s considerable investment.


AREA: Floor (drainage) and walls ACTION: Minimalist drainage and complete waterproofing underlay Integrated linear drain wetroom kit, Schlüter-KERDI-LINE-WRKL, was used to provide guaranteed waterproofing and drainage for the bathroom. This kit consists of a waterproofing and


sealing kit, shower boards, drainage channel and support plus a tile support grate. The waterproofing and sealing kit contains Schlüter-KERDI waterproofing membrane, plus Schlüter-KERDI-KEBA sealing band, Schlüter-KERDI-KERECK pre-formed corner pieces and Schlüter-KERDI-COLL sealing adhesive. The KERDI membrane from the kit was used to waterproof the back wall and around the shower wall. The rest of the room was done out with Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD waterproof backerboard in 10mm thickness. All joints and junctions were sealed with the aforementioned set of sealing products. The 800mm linear drainage channel was installed in an intermediate location, sloped to from both sides using the Schlüter-KERDI-SHOWER-L and Schlüter- KERDI-SHOWER-LS pre-sloped shower boards. The drain is designed to be tiled to in-line with the rest of the floor – in this case with wood-effect tiles – resulting in a discreet solution. “Since we started using Schlüter’s wetroom kits three years’ ago, we’ve had none of


the problems we would get previously”, says Vincent, “We wouldn’t deviate from them now as they offer a comprehensive and trustworthy solution to prepping a wetroom”.


ACTION: Providing heated surfaces across the room The timber floors of the project had already been insulated, so Vincent installed the original Schlüter-DITRA-HEAT-E electric underfloor heating system. “It’s great that you can use this system throughout the whole of a room, including the shower area”, says Vincent, “Often this isn’t an option with other systems”. Continues Vincent, “In refurbishment


work, it’s always a struggle to keep floor build-ups low – but with the Schlüter- DITRA-HEAT-E system, all build-up is contained within the height of the membrane so there are no unexpected surprises”.


AREA: Walls (wood-effect tiling) ACTION: Providing appropriate edge finishing for external corners Vincent used chrome-plated brass finishing profile, Schlüter-QUADEC-MC, to provide finishing against the wood-effect wall tiles. He also used the matching Schlüter-QUADEC-MC/EV corner pieces to finish the corners of the 1-metre-high shower wall. “Schlüter trims give a great finish for tile edges and neatly cover the edge of tile”, comments Vincent, “Plus the corner pieces


AREA: Floor


give a good looking finish that avoids sharp edges – important as we were finishing a low wall that could be a source of injury if finished with mitring”.


ACTION: Providing appropriate edge finishing for external corners Schlüter-JOLLY-AC in a Matte Brilliant White (MBW) finish was used to finish edges in wall areas where 1000mm x 330mm ceramic tiles were installed, including around window reveals and product boxing. Three quarters of the edges of Quell’s custom-built niches for the project were also edged with the MBW trims, with QUADEC-MC to the inside edge of each as part of a wood-effect feature shower wall. Schlüter was able to provide many of the solutions needed for Quell to give their client a statement bathroom to be proud of.
