Cost of a new bathroom ? Anyone had 1 planned and fiited at B&Q or anywhere similar?

How much would an average sized bathroom maybe 6ft X 8ft cost for a new refit,and floor to ceiling tiles on all walls? Be a bath,sink and toilet.

I found the following answer at yahoo but don't know how near this is,plus its 2 years ago it was asked.

Has anyone had B&Q come round to plan 1 and fit it as noticed on their website they do this service,or any other similar companies?

DIY is the answer!

I'm not particularly handy, but I learned a few things here and there and I managed to rebuild my bathroom from the bricks out - took a while but did the whole thing for about £400 all in.

Didn't you get a new bathroom last year or year before?

I'm going call in a local bathoom shop and enquire,my partner says get rid of the bath and just have a shower cubicle now.

Maybe ask around, friend of a friend, locally maybe shop windows,newspaper for cheaper labour. :)

My partner very poor at anything to do with DIY.

We got some strimmer line already on a spool other week and he mucked that up and the line was shredded to nothing,so let's not go there for him to do anything in a bathroom.

We were going to get rid of the bathroom a while back - bl00min glad we didn't now that we have a 2 year old!

Obviously depends on where you are in life but worth bearing in mind - also if it comes to selling it anyone with a young child or thinking of having a child will want a bath.

Shame really we wanted to turn ours into one of those wet rooms - never mind.

edit - that was supposed to be - get rid of the bath not the bathroom!

edit - again - just noticed your user ID - you probably already know about kids :)

I called a local bathroom shop. They quoted me about £6000:w00t: A friend bought her bathroom suite from B&Q for £300 and got someone to fit it for £500.

Yeh my 2 would be ok using a shower but we got baby on way but I got a baby bath ready anyway,so not really concerned personally about no bath,cos when the baby too big for baby bath,I can just go under the shower with baby.

I'll be there a long while I hope so for me that doesn't come into it for now.

Just at the house at moment we got a bath tub with taps that a shower hose comes from and we don't usually use the bath as it's easier for shower.

Think she just phoned a local plumber to fit it. I`m gonna try that myself,but need to change to a shower unit too as hubby is disabled. I`m going to try for three estimates from plumbers:thumbsup:

I personally would have an over the bath electric shower, it is a bad move getting rid of bath, only my thoughts
#22
what about if a bath would be better for medical reasons etc? you never know, just dont think its a great idea long term to not have one

my niece broke her leg once, had to bath with it hanging over the edge, how would that work in a shower?

must admit I love my bath:) but hubby is finding it more and more difficult to get legs up to get in bath.

That what is in at moment.
To be fair the bathroom isn't in too bad state just thought it be nice to have a whole new bathroom for a change if we do move.

I'll probably be asking about a lot of stuff to do with house bits over next couple mths or so.

~Always worth calling about.

Anyway don't think I'll bother with B&Q,but I may pop in a local bathroom centre nearby to me,they probably pounce on me soon as I enter.

New refit for a house I hope to move into.

I only rent at moment so wouldn't pay so much for something like that to be done in rented home.
#32
Is everyone serious that a bathroom can be refitted for these figures? I could do with change of everything in the bathroom but thought it would cost at least £5,000. My hubby and I aren't into diy either so like Mum2Connor&Cerys we'll need to get the trade men in. Good luck mum. I might be asking you for some tips shortly...................:whistling:

ide be surprised even if getting different tradesman in to do the job you would get it done for anywhere near £2000


mine on a really tight budget

bathroom suite, cheap but couldnt afford more £200
tiles, nothing fancy, nice big white ones £300 (small bathroom)
plaster, grout, bits and bobs £200

thats £800 before you have even started, tradesman you probs looking at at least £200 a day

Yeh I've got some cash aside for certains things want doing or buying,and having a new bathroom as come into mind.

I've already decided that I'm going get 1 of those rangestyle cookers as the space requires 1 and I've decided on real wood flooring instead of laminated.

I've gotta get a radiator to sort out and want to get a few other things checked out,gas boiler checks,that kind of thing will need paying for,fitting of fire alarms,think the local fire brigade do those for free.

I just waiting for the final bits of the sale to be done,and suppose it could fall through yet but at same time I need think of what we wanting done etc.

Once I gett he keys and give in notice on this house,then I got a mth to move aswell as get things sorted for moving in,I want the majority of it decorated before moving in,new flooring the lot,big expectations I guess.

Thanks anyway,I sure hope it completes.

I would advise putting a bath in a "family house", if its a flat a shower may be better. People expect this as showers prob no good for kids.

Avoid coloured baths, they date horribly, ditto for flashy tiles...

If you are looking at buying a house, and are bad at diy, try and avoid fixers (unless u cant avoid them price-wise).

Most shops (including B&Q) sub-contract the labour, and take a cut, so if you hire direct you save a packet, plus you can do some of the stuff before they come, and have more control over the work - when its done etc. I would've thought there's lots of fitters looking for the work.

Agree with others, labour is the big cost, especially if you want to rearrange the layout.

Thanks for replying.
My Mum don't like coloured baths,I not really thought much in way fo styles and designs.

Nah nothing really up with the house,I'm just tempted to have a new refit in bathroom even though there isn't really anything wrong with it and is better state than what I got in this rented home.

People advertise on ebay. About £400 to fit a suite rising to about £1600 for floors, ceiling and walls. I'm doing one myself at the moment but we also have a separate bathroom up in the extension so there is no rush...
