What Are The Benefits Of Hiring A Bathroom Designer?

What Are The Benefits Of Hiring A Bathroom Designer?

Weighing up whether to hire a bathroom designer or look for an alternative solution?

One other option is to embrace the DIY spirit and try it yourself – but for major plumbing work, you will still need a professional.

That aside, doing it yourself may save you some money. However, bear in mind that if you make a big mistake or cause some damage, it may end up being more costly after all.

So, why exactly do people hire a bathroom designer? What are the benefits and are there any drawbacks?

Let’s find out right now.

Service guarantees provide peace of mind

If you design a bathroom yourself and something goes wrong in the future, there won’t be a straightforward solution to fix things without incurring costs.

Something might stop working properly due to the way it has been installed but it’s also perfectly possible that natural wear and tear over time will necessitate some action. After all, the bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in the home!

And when something stops working properly in the bathroom, that’s a challenge because it’s highly likely that some plumbing will be involved, a specialist skill.

That’s a key benefit of using professional bathroom designers. They should offer a service guarantee for a set period of time, promising to restore things to the status quo if anything goes wrong.

Just bear in mind that many companies only offer a two or three-year guarantee. That may not be long enough. 

We offer 10-year guarantees on new bathrooms, wet rooms and walk-in showers in Devon and beyond, reducing the risk and providing peace of mind about the quality of your bathroom conversion.

Years of experience can handle any scenario

One of the reasons why bathroom design is a professional service is due to its difficulty and wide range of challenges needing solving.

The same is true of most careers. Those with decades of experience are highly qualified and have faced a wide range of scenarios in their career, so they know how to handle all the challenges that come their way.

We have over 35 years of experience designing and installing bathrooms, so your bathroom renovation is in safe hands.

Nothing surprises us, we’re prepared for every eventuality and know how to cope with any challenge associated with bathroom design.

We’ve seen it all, yet we still keep up with cutting-edge trends. Here is our guide to the latest bathroom trends to watch out for.

Professional bathroom designers should cover all trades

There are lots of moving parts in a typical bathroom design project. If you’re trying to take on the work yourself, it’s unlikely you’ll have experience of all the different trades involved.

Here are just some of the different trades we provide during our bathroom design projects:

  • Plumbing and electrical work
  • Plastering and ceilings
  • Wet wall tiling and panelling
  • Karndean flooring
  • Accessibility planning and mobility aids
  • Bath-to-shower conversions
  • Bathroom furniture installation
  • Walk-in shower installation
  • Wet room and wet area design
  • Bathroom transformations
  • Full design and installation

You may not need each service every time, but this list helps explain the complexity involved in a typical bathroom design project. And that’s before we take away all the old, bulky bathroom fixtures you no longer require.

Here are our tips for designing a luxury modern bathroom, perfect for creating a relaxing and welcoming space.

Bathroom designers can handle big projects

A big bathroom redesign project could take you a long time to finish if you try it alone or as a family.

Days or even weeks could go by until the work is complete, especially if it’s your first time trying such a project.

But because this type of work is bread and butter to a bathroom designer, they should finish the work swiftly. That means you won’t have to wait long to have your home back to normal.

Our bathroom designers can convert your bathroom in just 48 hours and often, we do it within a day. We know a new bathroom and walk-in shower is incredibly important in any home, so we aim to limit the disruption to your daily life as much as possible.

What questions should I ask a bathroom designer?

Hopefully you’ve seen by now that the benefits to choosing an experienced bathroom designer with a strong reputation outweigh any disadvantages.

But how can you ensure you choose a reliable, best-in-class bathroom designer? The key is to get answers to your key questions before commissioning them.

Questions to think about getting answers for include:

  • What areas do you cover (is my area included?)
  • Are you accredited by any official bodies?
  • How much experience do you have?
  • Do you charge to provide a quote?
  • Is the work guaranteed?
