When remodelling a bathroom what comes first?

Your tradesman will be able to tell you the order in which jobs need to be tackled after assessing your existing bathroom and consulting your plans. The order is likely to vary between projects, but a bathroom installation typically follows this order:

  1. Demolition – remove existing bathroom and tiles
  2. First fix – qualified plumbers and electricians will ensure all of the necessary wires and pipework are in place
  3. Tiling – wall and floor tiles will be installed
  4. Bathroom suite and furniture installed – at this point tradesman will fit the bath, shower, sink, toilet and any bathroom storage furniture
  5. Painting and decorating – the final step is to paint the room and add finishing touches and accessories
