We are looking to have our bathroom refitted. Get rid of the bath and put in a shower. It’ll need new floor and timing, new sink and toilet and a heated towel rack instead of radiator).
Can seasoned pros at ‘having work done’ please give me a child-like explanation of where we start with this (design, sourcing actual bathroom fittings, finding people to do the work, etc)?
@goddess Jasmine @kovacsC @jem something in the back of my mind says you might have had recent-ish work done.
We did exactly what you're describing, about 6 months ago. We also checked through friends for recommendations and ended up using a plumber who'd done a bathroom refit for a friend of our daughter's, and who's work they were very happy with. He managed the whole thing. He had a tiler and electrician that he always worked with, and he recommended a trade supplier he always used for the actual kit we needed to buy, as well as doing a survey and giving us a list of everything we needed to order from the supplier. He coordinated all the work, i.e. the strip out, plumbing, plastering the cieling and skimming the walls, the tiling and electrics. All we had to do was find someone to fit the flooring.
The work itself was a pain, but only because we had no bathroom for about 5 days, but luckily we have a downstairs loo, so didn't have to crap in a bucket or anything unsavoury like that.
