We understand that designing and installing a new bathroom can be a daunting process. To help you prepare, here is an overview of what to expect from our bathroom fitting service:
How quickly can a bathroom be installed?
Ultimately, the amount of time required to fully install a bathroom is dependent on a number of factors. The primary influences on installation timescales include the complexity and scale of the project, the tasks to be completed throughout the installation (often including framing, general plumbing, flooring installation, tiling, wiring, plastering, cabinet and worktop installation, shower fitting, bathtub fitting, sink and toilet installation, and painting), and the company or fitter selected to complete the work.
As timelines can vary so significantly in line with the infinite range of bathroom designs, layouts, fixtures, fittings, and finishes, there’s no one set UK average. Typically, however, a bathroom installation can take anywhere from five days to upwards of two weeks to complete.
How much does a new bathroom cost?
The cost of installing a new bathroom varies greatly and is dependent on a number of factors. The shape and size of your bathroom will affect how easy it is to install a new bathroom, how long it will take, and what materials you will require. Likewise, the cost will also be impacted by the new fixtures and fittings you choose, whether or not you need to remove existing fixtures first, whereabouts your property is located, and whether you encounter unforeseen complications. While it is impossible to definitively answer how much a new bathroom costs, the average cost of installing a full-scale new bathroom in the UK is often said to be somewhere around £6000.
Fitting a new bathroom can be a complex process and while doing the work yourself is one way to keep costs down, hiring a professional bathroom fitter is often worth the added expense. If you’re considering installing a new bathroom and are located in the Suffolk area, contact B. A. Boyle and Son today for a free initial consultation.
How much does a new bathroom add to house value?
Typically, a new bathroom can add 4-5% to the value of your property. Along with kitchens, bathrooms are one of the rooms that potential buyers pay the most attention to. Installing a new bathroom or even just renovating your existing bathroom can be a great way to increase the value of your home. Even if potential buyers don’t share the exact same taste in bathrooms as you, a modern, hygienic-looking bathroom is generally more appealing than one that looks outdated or isn’t in good condition.
So, if you’re located in the Suffolk area and considering installing a new bathroom to help increase the value of your home, contact B. A. Boyle and Son today for a free, no-obligation consultation with a member of our bathroom fitting team.
What type of bathroom flooring is best?
Bathroom flooring has to work particularly hard. When choosing a material for your new bathroom floor, you should consider who will be using the bathroom and therefore how hardwearing it needs to be, followed by what kind of look you are after.
Your bathroom floor must be able to handle moisture, easy to clean, and kind to your bare feet. Tiles, stone, vinyl, rubber, and engineered wood are all great waterproof options. If the bathroom will be used by young children or someone elderly, vinyl and rubber flooring tend to offer the most grip when the floor is wet, while tiles are a durable and popular choice for those looking to create a stylish patterned floor.

Can you use the toilet during a bathroom renovation?
If you’re planning a bathroom renovation, it’s normal to be concerned about how you’ll cope without access to your toilet, especially if your house only has one bathroom. When installing new bathroom fixtures, it’s inevitable that there will be times when you cannot use your toilet. However, plumbers and bathroom fitters are aware that this is an inconvenience and will usually prioritise getting your toilet working again. How long your toilet is out of action will be determined by the specifics and complexity of the job – you should speak to your bathroom fitter for an estimate and then make plans accordingly to minimise any inconvenience.

What is the difference between a bathroom fixture and a bathroom fitting?
Bathroom fixtures and bathroom fittings are two terms that are often used interchangeably and therefore easily confused, but the difference between them is actually very simple.
A bathroom fixture is a permanent feature of your bathroom, that cannot easily or freely be moved. Bathroom fixtures are features that are plumbed or wired in, such as bathtubs, showers, and toilets. In comparison, bathroom fittings are additional features that can be moved or replaced more easily, such as cabinets and mirrors.
If you’re considering fitting a new bathroom and are based in the Suffolk area, contact B. A. Boyle and Son for a free initial consultation, either online or over the phone.
Should I replace my shower with a bathtub?
Bathtubs are a great option for families with young children, as well as those who enjoy a relaxing hot bath to relieve tension in muscles and joints. A bathtub can also make your bathroom feel more luxurious. If your bathroom does not have room for a separate bath and shower, a shower-tub combo can be an excellent compromise.
However, if you’re considering selling your home in the future, you want to choose a fixture that appeals to as many potential buyers as possible. Showers are in-demand, so if you only have one shower, replacing it with a bathtub might not be the best decision. Furthermore, showers tend to use less water, are easier to get in and out of, require less space, and are generally more affordable.

How do I choose a bathroom fitter?
Bathrooms are generally one of the most used rooms in the house, so whether you’re looking to renovate or completely replace your existing bathroom, it’s important to find a reliable bathroom fitter with the necessary experience and expertise. Here are a few tips to help you select the right person for the job:
- Look out for experience as much as accreditations
- Choose someone you feel comfortable around
- Ask to see examples of previous work
- Ask for quotes that cover all costs
- Establish a payment plan
- Ensure they are familiar with building regulations
- Ensure they are contactable for follow-ups after the work is complete
- Check reviews and recommendations online
- Ask family and friends for recommendations

Should you tile before or after fitting a new bathroom?
Every new bathroom installation is unique – therefore, there are no rules when it comes to planning the order of work. However, there are advantages to tiling before you install new fixtures and fittings. Not only does tiling first ensure that the floor is sealed, but it also means that tiles don’t have to be cut to awkward shapes to fit around fixtures and fittings, making the job easier and helping to improve finish quality. Even if you can’t get all of the tiling done before installing new fixtures and fittings, it’s generally recommended to tile as much of the bathroom as you can, once any initial plumbing and electrical work has been completed.

How much space does a new toilet need?
The amount of space a toilet requires is determined by the rough-in dimension, the shape of the seat, and the tank design. The toilet rough-in is the distance from the finished wall to the center of the toilet's floor drain or waste outlet, and toilets that are closer to the wall will usually take up less space in your bathroom. To ensure that your new toilet is comfortable to use, you should adhere to UK guidelines which state that there should be 15 inches of free space on either side of the toilet and 21 inches in front, to allow for adequate leg room. These distances can of course be increased if desired, allowing for greater comfort and the placement of items such as a freestanding toilet paper holder.
