But price clearly isn't the main driver for everyone – 49% of people who used their own installer did so simply because they prefer to and 21% did so because they always use the same tradesman. It's also worth thinking about whether it would be cheaper for your installer to get your bathroom for you, as some companies, such as Travis Perkins and Plumb Center, sell directly to trade, sometimes at cheaper prices. Electrical works, including the installation of lighting, fans, sockets or electric showers should be carried out by a Part P-registered electrician.

Once your new bathroom or en suite is complete, make sure you gain the relevant building regulations approval, including drainage, electrics and ventilation, and checking that any glass meets the required safety standards. You might need to prove that you've done this when you sell the house.
What are some ideas for bathroom walls and floors? Floor to ceiling tiles in a bathroom have gained popularity in recent years because they are easy to clean and maintain, unlike paint, which needs to be refreshed as the years roll on. In terms of flooring, tiles aren't the only option these days. Wood and concrete are charming and easy to maintain, and give off a totally different vibe. Concrete is perfect for those who want a bathroom that is at the height of minimalist design, whereas wood is better suited to a more classic, rustic theme. Both of these flooring types can be translated into the other rooms of the house, too. Bathroom wallpaper has also made a big comeback! There are now many wallpaper coverings available that can withstand the humid and wet conditions of a bathroom. Get inspired with colours to use from browsing through our photos of bathroom ideas.
When it's time to paint, make sure you have planned your color palette. Keep in mind that painting a wall an accent color takes time. Use neutral colors to make your bathroom feel calm and aesthetically pleasing. Create a neutral color palette to form the base theme of your bathroom. Utilize textures and patterns in neutral tones to add creativity and depth. Remember that the color white is associated with cleanliness. An alternative to painting is to add pops of color by showcasing colorful hand towels, bathroom tile, rugs or even robes to create your own ambiance and flair. Hang bold, vibrant towels or robes to add color and personality. Display stylish soap dishes and accessories for a designer touch. Paint your mirror frame an accent color.
