Bathroom Installation

Thinking of a new bathroom? If you think you can do it yourself, you may want to reconsider.

You may feel yourself up to the task, but unless you have tried to fit a bathroom yourself, you really can't fully appreciate what you need to go through. If you have fitted a bathroom yourself before, do you really want to go through that again? Or would you rather leave it to the experts? For a start, no matter how big you think the job is going to be, it is bigger.

Obviously, if all you are doing it adding a fresh coat of paint around the tiles then go for it, but if your plan includes anything else, then think hard. Retiling even a small area of the bathroom may be enough to drive you round the bend. But a typical bathroom redesign will also involve removing all of the old fixtures and fittings and replacing them with shiney new fixtures and fittings.

You may also be thinking of changing the arrangement of bathroom furniture, either because the existing layout is a problem, or to give yourself more space, or to make room for a new item. Or even something drastic such as resizing the whole room, either to make more room in the bathroom or to expand an adjoining bedroom.

Whatever you want to do with your bathroom, get in touch. Of course, you may even be thinking of a wetroom, which is becoming more and more popular, especially as it allows a fair amount of freedom in design. In which case most professionals, and some very sad DIYers who have attempted the same thing would warn you about overestimating your abilities.

If you are planning to DIY your bathroom redesign, then you should be aware that it will involve most, if not all of the following:

But if you are in anyway unsure, then please call a professional from the off. We are experts at fitting and remodelling bathrooms. It really does save you money to not have to avoid going through the rigmarole yourself.
