Thinking of Installing a New Bathroom?
5 Things You Should Consider Before You Do Anything
The bathroom and the kitchen are probably the two rooms in any home, which can really benefit from a makeover. Watch any home improvement program, and it is always those two rooms that generate the wow factor. When starting to plan and implement a new bathroom project, preparation and planning are essential. At Moreheat, we like to do things a little differently; we don’t have customers, we have partners, and our aim is always to deliver the family bathroom of your dreams.
Having designed and installed hundreds of bathroom suites, we have identified a wide range of questions, which our bathroom design teams are regularly asked, and so we thought this would be an excellent subject for a blog post. We are determined to ensure that every family that uses our services is thrilled with the final product.
How Much Should It Cost To Install A New Bathroom?
Understandably, this is the number one question we are asked when people come to choose their new bathroom suite. However, our answer might surprise you because we always tell our customers to come up with a budget, and then we will work towards that budget as part of the design process.
We are not in the business of making our customers spend more money, to maximise our profit margins, and it can be very easy for bathroom installation costs to get out of control if they are not appropriately managed. When planning your bathroom, our team can advise on every aspect of the process, including the cost of your bathroom suite, installation, shower enclosures, and even vinyl flooring.
We don’t want there to be any unexpected costs that push you over your budget, which is why we invest time with you at the start of the process to discuss all of the options available to you.
How Much Does A New Bathroom Cost In The UK?
The average cost of a professionally installed bathroom suite in the UK in 2020 costs anywhere between £3000 to £10,000, but obviously, there are many different factors to be taken into consideration. Do you want a shower, a bath, or both? How much money are you going to allocate to bath taps, mirrors, and other smaller items that can dramatically increase the cost? The bathroom space is a matter of personal choice, and in our opinion, it is worth investing time and effort into the planning process.
Would a walk-in shower be beneficial now or in the near future? Adding one of those at the time of installation is much more economical than in a few years. Although the final decisions have to be made by you and your family, our advisors are always happy to discuss the various choices and suggest options and solutions, some of which you may never have considered. This type of attention to detail and personal touch is what we feel sets Moreheat apart from our competitors.
How Do I Choose A New Bathroom?
We have found, having worked with many families over the years, that the best plan of action when choosing a new bathroom suite, is to decide which bathroom products are most important to you.
Many people fall in love with a colour scheme or a specific mixer tap, but all of those things can be chosen in the second stage of the design process. When selecting bathroom suites, take into consideration that most bathrooms are updated every five or so years.
A traditional bath might be easy for you or your loved ones to get into and out of today, but what about in three years, for instance? By planning for the future, and any potential life changes, you are future-proofing your bathroom purchase as best as possible.
How Much Does It Cost To Tile A Bathroom?
Tiling a bathroom is one of the most expensive aspects of the job, but the good news is that there are many variables and choices that you can make to reduce the cost. Our bathroom installers are very efficient at minimising waste when it comes to tiling, but you also need to factor in the type of tiles you choose, and whether you plan to tile the entire bathroom, or maybe only up to head height. All of these decisions should be made in conjunction with your initial budget, which is why we believe that is the most important decision anyone can make before they start the process.
Take Your Time and Enjoy The Process
Choosing a bathroom suite should be a fun and exciting experience, so take your time and don’t make any hasty decisions. Use Pinterest and the internet to get ideas and stimulate your imagination.
