How much does a new bathroom installation cost in Southend

Whether you need a useful space for a quick shower after a workout, or a relaxing room where you can lounge and pamper yourself, our bathrooms are functional and practical spaces that can cope with a lot. If you’re interested in updating your bathroom, it’s important to be aware of average cost of a new bathroom, and how much installation will be.

The price of a new bathroom will be determined by a number of key factors. The most important cost is the value of the new suite being installed – the bath and or shower, wash basin and lavatory. The price of a bathroom suite is dependent on the materials used, quality and specification – a simple acrylic or steel bathtub can be less than £100, whereas a high-end one can run to more than £1,000. On top of this, there is the cost of installation, which will depend on the length of time the job will take and number of people working on it.

Other elements to consider are the cost of removing the old bathroom, re-plumbing, re-plastering, tiling, and the cost of additional items such as taps, towel rails and sealant. Many of these can be included in the price of installation if your bathroom fitter covers them.

On average the cost for a bathroom replacement will range from about £2,750 to over £6,500 for the basic (lower end of the scale) to luxury bathroom (£7k plus).

5 Things to consider when designing a new bathroom suite

1. Measure Up precisely

Before you start designing your bathroom you need to accurately measure it. This must be done carefully and exactly in order to design the best bathroom for you and the space. Remember – measure twice and cut once!

Plumbco Services will take care of this for you if you need us to.

2. Choose your layout

Even the dreamiest bathroom has to deal with plumbing drains, water lines, and vent stacks. Bathroom floor plans generally fall into one-, two- or three-wet-wall layouts. A wet-wall refers to the way your fittings (bath, shower, toilet, basin etc.) are plumbed into the bathroom. This determines where to run plumbing lines and pipes to the fittings themselves.

A one-wet-wall layout has the toilet; sink and shower fitted along the same wall in the bathroom, and tends to be relatively cost effective due to the uncomplicated plumbing required With a two-wet-wall layout, you can have your shower plumbed in on one wall and your toilet and sink in another. A three-wet-wall layout enables you to plumb the toilet, sink and shower onto three different walls. This can be an expensive option, but it does give you more choice.

3. Flooring:

The most important thing about your bathroom floor is that it’s waterproof and non-slip. The most popular choice, of course, is tiles, as these are the most durable when confronted with moisture and steam. There are a range of colours, styles and finishes to choose from. Tiles will more than likely stand the test of time, more so than other types of flooring. You can also choose to have vinyl if you have a smaller budget.

4. Lighting

As bathrooms are often placed next to the bedroom, lighting should be considered carefully. You don’t want bright lights flashing on in the middle of the night – it’s not comfortable for the person taking a trip to the bathroom, or for the person asleep next-door. Also consider how clever lighting can transform the look and make a bathroom feel larger.

5. Ventilation is important

You don’t want damp to occur in your bathroom, especially in an ensuite placed so close to the bedroom, which is why extraction needs to be considered. Make sure the room is well ventilated, as you certainly don’t want steam flowing into the bedroom, nor do you want your extraction to be too loud.

How much should a new bathroom installation cost?

Bathroom installation costs can vary so much because each job needs to be priced in relation to individual circumstances. The shape and size of your bathroom can affect how easy a job is to complete, the length of time it will take and how much material is required.

Quality is always priority with any installation job, so it’s worth paying that bit more to ensure your bathroom has a professional finish. Cut corners and you could end up paying more in the long run to rectify expensive mistakes.

At Plumbco Services we pride ourselves on providing a high-quality installation and finish. Please contact us for a quote.
