Bathroom Fitting Question

Is it possible to keep existing wall tiles when changing a bathroom suite?

Hello all,

We want to upgrade the bathroom suite in our shower room but I really love the wall tiles. Is it possible to change the toilet, pedestal and shower and keep the wall tile? We would be changing the floor tile and regrouting the walls. Would we be better off using a pod shower over the existing wall tile rather than trying to get a shower tray and screen to match the existing measurements?

Also, how much time should we allow for this sort of project? We would be keeping everything in the same place and adding underfloor heating.

Many thanks,
Lauren
