A new bathroom can add value to your home and improve your quality of life, but buying a new bathroom can seem a complex and daunting process. To ensure you get the best possible bathroom for your money we’ve put together a brief guide to help you to ask the right questions before you buy.
Your bathroom buying checklist:
How can I make the most of the space?
If space is limited in your bathroom there may be a number of options available to you.
You can either stick with the existing arrangement of fittings (but perhaps choosing compact versions) or you can look at alternative configuration. Of course, moving the plumbing will require some additional work, but it could be the best option in making the best use of space. Contact us to share your ideas.
It is also worth considering extending your bathroom. A good builder will be able to provide a realistic assessment of all the options available to you with costs so you can compare your choices.
It’s always best to consult an expert when considering changing the layout of your bathroom as they will be able to assess the impact on plumbing, electrics and give a professional view on the space required for each part of the bathroom suite. Popular design ideas for 2019.
How much storage do I need?
When planning your bathroom, it’s important to consider the storage you’ll need within the space available. To make sure your new bathroom looks its best, plan ahead to have a space to store toiletries, cleaning materials, towels and laundry. Make sure you also consider including space for towel rails and hooks for hanging robes etc.

Will I need a plumber?
It’s always best to use a qualified and experienced plumber to install your new bathroom to ensure the best quality workmanship. If you involve your plumber from the start of the process, they can save you time and money by advising on the best suite for your room and giving an indication of any potential problems or issues that are likely to arise.
