At Inspired Vision, we know you care about the cost of your bathroom and the best way to keep those costs down is by buying quality bathroom products at a price that's right for you.
Our bathroom products come fully guaranteed.
Bathroom installation cost can vary depending on the amount of work involved. While you can get a good evaluation of estimated costs when planning work on your bathroom the end figure can vary.
The recommended installers quoted a range of £70 - £120 for small jobs like fitting a basin and pedestal while larger tasks like tiling a bathroom came in with an average £1,000.
Overall the average cost of a new bathroom is £4,500 in the uk including installation. Average installation only costs can be from £2,000 to £2,500
The reason why costs vary is that each job will need to be priced in relation to its 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 unseen complications, such as damaged piping, then this will raise the cost of the quote.
What about waste?
no job in the bathroom is mess free and this throws up the question of waste disposal.
traders will dispose of materials for you but they have to pay business rates to do so.
Finish comes first.
last but no means least, the underlying message from which? Local's survey of bathroom installers found that quality is always the priority with any job. Just like us at Inspired Vision, where we only stock high quality products made from the best materials, reputable installers will put the finish of a job at hand above everything else.
It may cost you a little more to get a professional finish but surely this is something worth paying for? After all, a bathroom which has been installed professionally looks great and is more likely to last than one which has a "cheap and cheerful" attitude.
