The Secret To Planning The Perfect Bathroom Installation

Are you planning to treat your home to a new bathroom? Our plumbers share their secrets to planning the perfect bathroom installation.

Write down a bathroom installation wish list 

The first place to start when planning a new bathroom installation is to write down everything you want to include, from what style suite you’d like to the wall tiles to the ornament at the end of the light switch string. Once you’ve got your wish list sorted, narrow it down by thinking carefully about budget, space constraints and if you really need it.  

Decide between a wet room and a bathroom 

If soaking in a tub isn’t for you, it might be worth ditching the bath and opting for a walk-in wet room instead. A wet room is a particularly popular and practical option for those with limited space as it frees up a significant amount of floor space. However, if you love nothing better than a long soak, there is a range of different shaped tubs, from short and thin to luxurious roll tops.  

Set your budget (and stick to it)

Once you’ve got an idea of what your dream bathroom installation looks like, it’s time to set your budget. Though it’s not the most exciting aspect of installing a new bathroom, you won’t enjoy relaxing in your new tub if you’re worried you overspent. If you’re not sure what you can afford, do some research and speak to your plumber. They will be able to give you a realistic estimate on how much the work will cost and give you invaluable advice on what will work best for your space. 

Sketch out where you’d like everything to go 

Once you’ve decided on the look of your new bathroom, you’ll need to decide where you’d like everything to be positioned and sketch it out ready to give to your plumber. Often, the position of your suite will remain the same as what’s already there, as you need to take into consideration the location of water and waste pipes, though it is possible to move things around. If you’re installing a brand-new bathroom, you have a little more freedom when it comes to the pipework.
