I'm planning a complete refit of my bathroom, hopefully converting to a wet room, and I just wanted to get some idea of my options.
The bathroom is (sadly) very small, around 1.7m x 2.3m. This is not helped by the fact the hot water tank with immersion heater takes up one corner of the room. (0.7m square)
I'm also assuming the fact I wouldn't be able to damp proof the cupboard (and hence would have a second perimeter door) would make it more tricky to convert to a wet room.
I'm fairly sure the boiler in the kitchen is not a combi boiler at present.
What are my options, how difficult to achieve, preferable for decent hot water supply?
- Can I move the hot water tank into the loft?
- Can I move the hot water tank into the garage? (Kitchen wall partially shared)
- Can I remove the hot water tank if I go over to combi? (or have I misunderstood what I need to change over to hot water "on demand"?)
- Something else?
I'd love to get the space back into the bathroom, and I really would like to go wet room with walk in if at all possible.
UK based if it makes any difference for the building regs etc.
