How much will your bathroom cost?

A bathroom is just a bathroom…. Right? As with many of the other elements of your self-build, there’s a lot that goes into a bathroom – all of which will have an impact on the final cost, and on construction.

At first glance, it doesn’t seem like there is much to consider when it comes to planning for how you will build and

fit out your bathrooms. After all, it is only a utilitarian space which, unlike the kitchen, doesn’t have the potential to double up as a place you can socialise in.

At a high level, a bathroom requires a wall finish, a floor finish, maybe a bath, a wc, a basin and possibly a shower with a shower enclosure. In addition, you will need taps, mirrors, a heating source, and an array of accessories.
