How much for a bathroom?
The price of a new bathroom depends on the goods you buy to put in it. The price of the labour is around £1500 to £2300 for all the plumbing and tiling. If you require any plastering and electrical work it will cost more.
If you only want the plumbing work done, you should be looking at £500 or less depending on what is being installed.
Tiles can be costly. This depends on which ones you buy and what is needed to stick them on to the wall or floor. Use the right stuff and you'll get the right results.
Baths, toilets, taps and basins all come with a range of different price tags, starting from as little as £199 for a complete suite to literally thousands of pounds.
Electric underfloor heating (which is well recommended), lighting, pumped and electric showers all need a Part P electrician to wire them in safely. Electricity and water don't mix well.
Last but not least, waste. You will need a skip or be able to take the waste to your local refuse centre. Make sure you use a company with a waste licence or you could be liable if your waste is dumped where it shouldn't be.
With all the above in mind, the average price of a standard bathroom installation including new bath, toilet, basin, shower,
tiling, taps and labour is around £1800-£5000 fitted. This price is based on bathrooms completely fitted by ourselves in 2012.
How much for a Kitchen?
Same rule applies to kitchens as it does bathrooms. It's what you put in and what you want doing.
The price of a kitchen can be anything from £2000 upwards.
The best advice we can give you is to ask for a free quotation. You will get good advice and hopefully also a better understanding of what things cost and what is good quality.
