Before You Book an Installer

Before booking the services of a bathroom installer we strongly recommend waiting until all of your new bathroom furniture has arrived and has been fully quality check by us and you. There is nothing worse than starting the project only to discover something that may cause a delay. Allow yourself plenty of time to be thorough.


At Gardiner Haskins, we make every effort to quality check all bathroom products before they make their way out the door to ensure that your bathroom project runs smoothly.


How Much Should a Bathroom Installation Cost?


This depends on what you are having fitted, smaller jobs may come in at around £150 for fitting just a basin for example. Tiling a large bathroom could cost around £1,000+, depending on any fiddly tile shapes and the area you are tiling. All of these odd jobs add up so when you get your installer to come in and quote for a job, make sure you give them as much detail as possible so the quote matches the job required.


  • Always shop around and compare quotes for your bathroom, giving the same specification to each installer to get like-for-like quotes.
  • Make sure you ask if they are going to arrange disposal of waste and see if it’s cheaper for you to arrange this yourself.
  • Cheaper isn’t always better. Your bathroom should last you many years so, you want to get a high-quality finish from your products and your installation. Cutting corners may seem right in the short term, but will undoubtedly mean you get a less than perfect finish. You will be kicking yourself for not spending a little bit extra on those little details.


Installation: What To Expect

This is a rough guide of the process that your bathroom installer will follow, which can take from 1 to 2 weeks depending on the size of your bathroom and the scope of the project.


What you have to do:

  • Empty the bathroom of any personal items
  • Clear the route from the bathroom to the entrance of your home to make sure there are no trip hazards for the bathroom fitters
  • Have plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits on hand to fuel your fitters!


What your bathroom installer will do:
