    Things to Consider With a Full Bathroom Refurbishment

    There are many things to consider when planning a full bathroom refurbishment. You should take your time in selecting the company that’s right for you and your needs. If you want a basic bathroom replacement, then there are companies that specialise in keeping costs to a minimum whilst providing a professional finish. If you have the cash to splash and decide to go for a high end replacement bathroom then you will need the services of a specialist luxury bathroom installation company.

    Whether you are spending big or small, get at least three quotations for the work you want to have done. Ask to see examples of the company’s finished work. Talk to previous customers or read testimonials. Do your research! You may not replace your bathroom for another 20 years so take your time in selecting the right bathroom installation company for you!

    There are many styles and finishes to select from in today’s design conscious world. If you are struggling to visualise your ‘after’ bathroom, some companies will supply you with a 3D plan so you can be confident you are making the right choices. You can also compile your own ‘mood board’ for your room with colours and textures you love and want to incorporate into the final design.

    If your budget is very tight consider changing only what needs changing-can you keep the sink and change the other fittings? The finished look will depend greatly upon the final look and feel-splashing out on some high end tiles may give you the luxury feel without breaking your budget. If you are prudent and do your research and shop around then you will be able to achieve a stylish bathroom

    Doing it Yourself

    You may decide that you have the skills necessary to undertake your bathroom installation yourself. If you are a seasoned DIY-er then you may well have gathered the competencies needed to install a bathroom suite and do your own tiling and flooring. Don’t forget though that you will need a qualified electrician to deal with all the electric details such as some showers and any light fittings you are planning on moving or installing.

    You should get quotes from up to 3 professional builders to get the best price for your bathroom refurbishment. They will know exactly what they are doing from experience of carrying out hundreds of bathroom refurbishments.

    We have a network of highly experienced and fully qualified builders who are more than happy to help with your full bathroom refurbishment.
