Take a look at the information below for a breakdown of the typical costs associated with a new bathroom installation. Find out exactly what you should expect to pay for and what you shouldn’t have to pay for either…
How much does it cost to fit a new bathroom?
The answer to this question varies and depends on:
- The size of your project
- The installer you choose
- Your style preferences
Every home is different and each installation has a different starting point…
For instance, updating a bathroom with a new suite will differ in cost compared to installing a new bathroom from scratch. Wherever more plumbing, decorating or electrics are required, the costs will be higher.
Plus, the suites and fixtures you prefer will impact the final costs…
There are plenty of affordable, compact suites on the market perfect for small bathrooms and en-suites. If you’re installing one of these suites, the project may be at the lower end of the price scale.
However, if you’re planning a luxury bathroom remodel including lots of features and bespoke elements, you should expect to pay more.
How to know for sure?
Really, the only way to know for sure how much your bathroom renovation will cost is to have a survey. Your bathroom survey and designs should always be free and the process will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed choice.
Bathroom renovation – the costs estimated
Despite the price variance we mentioned above, it is possible to get a really good deal on your bathroom renovation. All that’s required is a clear idea of what you want to achieve and the help of a transparent bathroom installer.

It’s useful to create a budget before you start planning. Appliances and suites will vary in price, as will installation, depending on the size of your room and the amount of work required. But, to give you an idea, we’ve gathered the main costs and what they stack up to.

Surveying the options
Of course, the only way to know what your renovation will cost for sure is to have a bathroom survey. During the survey, your installer will discuss your ideas with you and provide an accurate picture of the work and the resulting costs.
At BASI Bathrooms, surveys are free and there’s no obligation to move forward with the quotation should you decide not to go ahead.
What should I expect to pay for as part of a bathroom installation?
It’s really important to understand what you should and shouldn’t be paying for when shopping around for quotations. Many installers will try and lure you in with a cheap initial quote, only to add on ‘hidden’ costs as the renovation progresses.
Make sure you agree a fixed price quotation upfront and ask to see an itemized break down of the costs. That way, you know everything’s accounted for within the stated price.
Balancing cost and quality
In the hunt for the best deal, it’s worth remembering that price is just one factor when it comes to your renovation. The end quality is hugely important too.
Don’t lose sight of the goal: installing a bathroom you love that stands the test of time.
You might find an outrageously cheap deal, but always make sure it’s not too good to be true. Do your research and check out the credentials of the installer and manufacturer thoroughly.
Thinking in the long term
You’re going to be using your bathroom for decades to come. So, make sure you love it! You might want to save a few pennies in the short term by opting for a cheaper suite, but is this the suite you really want? And will it stand up to the test of time?
It always pays to be practical and invest in a quality suite that will go the distance. Working with an installer that provides a manufacturer’s warranty and workmanship guarantee is one way to ensure quality and keep your home protected should any issues arise.
