Estimating the cost of a new bathroom – what costs are included?
Whilst you can get a good evaluation of estimated costs when planning work on your new bathroom, the final figure can vary, based on complexity and the time taken to complete the job.
The reason why costs vary is that each job will need to be priced in relation to individual circumstances. The size and shape of your bathroom will affect how easy a job is to complete, how long it will take and how much materials will be used. If there are complications like damp flooring or damaged piping then this will add to the quote.
In general the average cost of a new bathroom includes furniture and installation.
You will need to factor in the cost of:
- Bathroom suite – including bath, basin, shower, taps, W/C
- Plumbing services – including plumbing materials (pipework, sanitary work)
- Electrical work – fitting down lights, installing shower, installing fan
- Joinery work – fitting cupboards, work-tops
- Tiling – how intricate is the design? Do you want niches? The more intricate the more it will cost
- Tiling materials – tiles, adhesive and grout
- Flooring – materials and installation
- Wastage – your old bathroom will have to come out first and this will have to be taken away. Traders pay business rates to dispose of waste materials and it is costly. (You can keep costs down by arranging to take some of the materials to the tip yourself or by hiring a skip).
