Top Questions to ask a Bathroom Fitter

What questions should you ask a bathroom fitter?

Four Key Questions for Bathroom Fitters

Spending hours selecting the perfect products for your new bathroom is part of the enjoyment of a bathroom refit but getting the right bathroom fitters for the job is the most essential aspect of any bathroom renovation. Hiring a fitter is a relatively simple process but hiring the fitter who can meet your requirements is the key to having the perfection you are looking for.

Preparing yourself to get quotes

One of the pre-requisites before selecting the tradesman you wish to hire, is to consider any specialised products you may of selected or any skilled trades you need to consider. If you have quartz resin tiles, they will need a professional tiler, if you want to include some luxurious underfloor heating then you will need a suitably qualified electrician.

1. Have you got any experience with this type of product?

Every bathroom project is different. Rather than asking “Have you fitted many bathrooms?” , try asking if they have experience with the type and style of product you have chosen instead. If you have a complicated product, like the aforementioned quartz resin tile, then you would ideally want a fitter who has fitted the same type of product before.

2. Request a portfolio 

Ask the prospective bathroom fitter if they have a portfolio for you to see. They may not always have a professional, marketing style portfolio, but even a selection of images on a smartphone can give you an idea of the quality of work they produce.

Any kind of electrical work, such as new circuits, will require a qualified electrician to fit. If the project you are embarking on includes electrical work, then check your fitter has the appropriate qualifications. There are also optional qualifications for most types of building work, so any other additional certificates should be a good indicator of the quality of work this fitter produces.

3. Technical questions

One way of isolating the good from the bad is to ask technical questions. The catch with this is that you need to know the answer; you don’t want a bad fitter selling you bad workmanship. A good fitter will usually respond with technically correct answers or they’ll admit that they will have to check with the supplier.

4. Don’t limit yourself to one fitter

Try and get a broad variety of quotes, 3 or 4 should suffice, that cover all the work you require. Different bathroom fitters will charge different rates and usually will list their material costs. Cross referencing these quotes should give you an idea of a fair price and a rough idea of the materials required.

5 Luxury Bathroom Ideas

bathroom ideasHaving a great bath in your private paradise is a great place to prepare yourself for the day and a soothing oasis to unwind after a hectic day. You can also use as your personal sanctuary anytime of the day to get away and just relax. The bathroom has a long history, with ancients perceiving it as a ritualistic place to cleanse the body and soul. Furthermore, only royalty in ancient times was allowed the luxury of accessing private bathhouses, with the others only able to access community built bathhouses. However, the notion of the modern bathroom means that anyone has the capacity to design their bathrooms anyway they want, and are thus only limited to their tastes and imagination. Here are some fantastic luxury bathroom ideas.

Dramatic Colours
Gone are the days of white and beige bathroom designs. Nowadays, especially for people who are bold enough, dramatic colours seem to be their style of choice. Black for example, which would be unheard of when it comes to bathroom designs, seems to be the most popular choice. This is because black especially goes well with dramatic lighting conditions. Having a dramatic design keeps the bathroom from being boring. Even if a bathroom is small, you should not be afraid of using dramatic colours to make it lively. The idea here is to have a small space with big ideas.
Space Saving Designs
When it comes to the bathroom, space is premium. The bathroom may not be the most spacious room in a home, but a good design may make it look bigger. However, this does not mean that you should sacrifice on your style. Saving space will involve critically analysing the layout of the bathroom before making design choices. You should then consider where to place different bathroom accessories.
Use Skylight

Natural light from the sun can have psychological benefits. Furthermore, while it will save you on electricity, having a bathroom design that lets in sunlight is classy and has a great aesthetic impact. In addition, you may entirely decide to take your bathroom outside to fully embrace the natural light, if the place is private enough. Some of the designs may include a tempered glass enclosure.
Marbles and Stone Design
Marble and stone designs in your bath give it that contemporary and luxurious feel. While most marble and stone designs are for decorative purposes, they are also used as functional items. For example, if budget is not an issue, you can have your tub designed exclusively in a natural marble and stone design.
Timber
While tiles are the most preferred for floor and wall designs, timber is now emerging as an alternative luxurious design. Timber has the effect of enhancing the grandeur and graciousness of the bathroom. Furthermore, you can take this design further by adding timber design features in functional units such as benches, cladding and accessories among others.
