Installing a new bathroom can be an exciting and rewarding project, especially when you see your hard work materialise into a beautiful and functional new space. However, achieving this can be a complex and time-consuming process and there are a lot of smaller details to consider.

Are you thinking about having your bathroom remodelled, but nervous about the potential problems that could arise when installing your dream bathroom? Don’t worry, we offer a comprehensive, start-to-finish service, so read on to learn more about the key stages of installation and how we ensure a painless process for our clients.

1) Meticulous planning and design work

We know that before any construction work begins, it is important to plan and design your new bathroom for three main reasons.

Firstly, you want to make sure that the process is efficiently yet truthfully time managed, with a clear understanding of procedure and with effective measures in place to cope with and minimise delays.

Secondly, you want to ensure that your bathroom has a functional layout with the right fixtures to meet your needs, with each one set up correctly from the start.

Lastly, you want to create a stylish space to add to your home. You will want to be able to admire your new bathroom while also having all the functionality you need!

By working with a bathroom interior designer to draw up your plans, you can help ensure that all these necessary aspects are considered. These initial plans can also help you identify the specialist skills required to complete your renovation, such as plumbing, electrical wiring, and tiling.

Explore our top tips for planning a new bathroom.

2) Clear out your existing bathroom!

After the planning and design work is completed, you will need to empty your current bathroom, including demolishing any existing fixtures, cupboards, and walls to clear out the space ready for your dream bathroom.

If required, you may also need to remove old plumbing, electrical wiring, and insulation, as well as ensuring your walls are levelled and any necessary plasterboard is fitted.

Don’t worry – your specialist bathroom installer will happily complete this process for you, but to help them as much as possible before they arrive, consider removing all personal belongings from the bathroom first!

3) Tiling your floors and walls

Next, you will need to lay your tiles, which can be quite a lengthy process due to the large surface area that needs to be covered.

As tiles are water-resistant, so it is advised that bathrooms are tiled anywhere the wall may be exposed to water splashes. This includes the bottom half of the wall, close around the toilet, or the entire bathroom wall, especially if you’re planning to install a luxury wet room or walk in shower.

We will source the tiles on your behalf, in accordance with the style and design that you desire, and our technicians will fit them as part of the installation process, helping you to save both time and money with your installation.

4) Plumbing and electrics

This is where things get slightly more complicated. When renovating your bathroom, our specialists may need to install new water and waste lines for your new sanitaryware and other fixtures, including your toilet, basins, bath, or shower.

To meet your new bathroom interior design plans, we may also need to rewire your electrics for new lighting, an extractor fan, or for installing underfloor heating.

Luckily, we are experts at sourcing and installing the right equipment for your needs. We are partnered with several leading brands within the industry to ensure you receive products that are both appropriate and reliable, helping prevent any leaks or other issues from arising in the future.

5) Finishing Touches

Finally, it’s time to add the last few personal touches – from painting or wallpapering the walls to adding decorative items such as artwork and plants. Your dream bathroom has now, officially, come to life!
