We’ll discuss the expenses of building bathrooms in this blog, how to choose an installation, and what you should anticipate for the money
you’re willing to pay.
The most common piece of criticism I receive from our customers about the labour needed in remodelling a bathroom is “there’s more to it
than I anticipated.”
From the bathroom you are presently looking at to the one you desire, it is prudent to get familiar with the trip between the two, to be
realistic about the entire process, and to be aware of the pitfalls to avoid when picking an expert to work with.
If your bathroom requires a complete re-do, including new plaster-boarding, electrics, and plumbing, then you must budget for more than
just the bathroom; there is definitely a construction work component to the task. This adds time and expense to the project’s delivery.
Before we begin, let me state unequivocally that there are several excellent 1-2 man band firms out there that do an excellent job from
design to installation to aftercare. You must conduct your own due diligence with any installer or installation firm and choose based on
your level of confidence and comfort.
You also need avenues for recourse if the project runs into difficulties – in other words, you should cover all bases and minimise your
overall risk. Cost should never be the primary consideration when selecting a company to work with on a large project in your own home;
if it is, you are more likely to run into trouble. However, this does not mean you will always get what you pay for by paying to hire a
If you’re just starting out on your adventure or exploring a project, you now have a few alternatives in front of you. As a general rule, the
cheapest solutions will include the greatest danger and discomfort, while the more costly ones will involve less risk and more ease.
Allow me to clarify what I mean and the alternatives you now have, starting with the least expensive:
Do it yourself; unless you are a skilled technician, this is a poor idea.
Who should be selected for this course of action? Bathroom tradespeople!
Create it yourself, do all the legwork, and then locate an installer (or separate trade, as is more likely). You might easily lose a lot of time
here, so proceed with caution.
Who should be selected for this course of action? If you have current knowledge of bathroom installation procedures, project
management, and strong connections to several reputable contractors, and also have a few weeks available, this may be the job for you.
Collaborate with an installer; you and the installer will agree on the design, layout, and products; you or the installer will deliver the
product; and you will agree on conditions.
Who should be selected for this course of action? As said previously, there is still some effort required on your part, but, if you are 100
percent certain you have the proper team in place and the patience to discuss and resolve challenges as a team, this may be for you.
However, BEWARE that after the project begins, if things do not work out, you will have a difficult time involving another installer in a job
that has gone wrong for whatever reason! Before we will intervene, we need to receive 2-3 calls per month from people who have been
Employ an end-to-end service specialist; collaborate with an expert from start to finish, utilising an in-house installation service and
aftercare package, to ensure that prices are fixed and you have recourse if you are dissatisfied.
Who is the best candidate for this position? If you want to devote all of your attention to the creative aspect of your journey and leave the
rest to the professionals, this is the course for you. The cost will be the highest, but the chances of success will be the greatest.
To choose which choice is best for you, you must first grasp the details of what each of the above alternatives entails. Obviously, the less
costly options need more of you at each level, while the more expensive options shift the burden away from you and towards the

Without examining your bathroom, it is impossible to provide a precise response.
It’s a sliding scale from the products and tiles you choose to the installation options you choose, the size of the room, and the amount of
building work required; all of these factors will affect the price and time required to complete. As a rough guide, 90% of the time, the cost
of a bathroom no larger than 2m x 2m falls between £6500-£8500, including basic building work such as plastering. The cost will increase
if your space is larger or more complicated.
