How Long Does A Bathroom Remodel Take In The UK?

How Long Does A Bathroom Remodel Take In The UK?

One of the most common questions we hear in our industry is: “How long does a bathroom remodel take?”

And with good reason. There’s little more frustrating than having your heart set on how a new room in your home will look – then finding out the company you’ve hired will take ages to complete the job.

Then again, some tasks need time to get them right. You don’t want bathroom designers to rush things, cut corners or deliver an inadequate service, just to finish the installation within an unrealistic time frame.

So in this guide, we’ll outline how long you should expect to wait when it comes to experts designing and installing a brand new bathroom.

But it’s not all about the journey, the destination is important too! Therefore, we’ll also cover some other crucial time frames – such as, how long should a bathroom guarantee last?

What does a bathroom remodel involve?

When thinking about how long your bathroom design process will take, it helps to know a little about the details of the tasks at hand.

There are plenty of moving parts to a bathroom renovation project. Even a small bathroom remodel involves several different tasks.

For example, here are some of the different services we provide during our bathroom remodels. Now our customers may not need each service every time, but this list helps explain the complexity involved in a typical bathroom remodel project:

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

In other words, there’s plenty going on during a bathroom remodeling project, before we even talk about taking away the old bathroom elements you don’t need anymore!

How long does a bathroom renovation take?

Now of course the length of time required depends on the scale of your ideas. From taking on a simple family bathroom design to realising your dream luxury bathroom ideas, the complexity involved is one of the key factors in terms of timings. 

Many bathroom fitters will need a few days to renovate your bathroom and some will take longer. Much longer.

That’s a lot of disruption in your home though. Given how important the bathroom is to any household, one of our key principles is to limit disruption wherever possible.

That’s why our expert team of bathroom suite fitters can convert your bathroom in just 48 hours. In fact, we complete many of our typical installations within just one day.

Now you might be wondering if there’s a catch when bathroom designers say they’ll finish the job within 48 hours. Perhaps the 48 hour time frame is doable, but will you need to wait a month before they come over to your home to start the construction process in the first place? 

Emergency installations within 7 days

For some other companies, that may be the case. But we think that defeats the purpose of efficient bathroom renovations and installations.

Now most homeowners don’t mind waiting a little while for a new bathroom suite. You might even want a few weeks’ notice to plan ahead before the bathroom designers start working.

But you don’t want to wait too long, so we keep our typical lead-in time to within two weeks from your initial appointment.

Sometimes, time is a luxury you just can’t afford and you need new fixtures in place urgently – we understand and that’s why we’re prepared to make a start soon.

If you need an emergency installation in your bathroom, we have you covered. We offer emergency installations within a week!

Here are the full details of our bathroom design and walk-in shower installation services.

A few days of work, guaranteed for 10 years

So we’ve established that once your bathroom designers come over, you should expect their final inspection to take place within 48 hours, if they’re efficient like us.

Did you know though that many bathroom providers only offer a two or three year guarantee for their installations?

That’s nowhere near long enough to bring you peace of mind, we believe.

That’s why another one of our core principles is to offer customers a 10-year guarantee on all completed bathroom suites, much longer than many other companies provide.
