The size of the bedroom How to convert a bedroom into a bathroom?

We recommend to all homeowners that the size of their new bathroom is crucial to the success of your conversion. It is no use cramming your new bathroom full of fittings as this will have a detrimental impact on the overall function. During the bathroom design process and survey, we will assess whether your room is suitable for conversions.


Ventilation is a must-have in any bathroom, and a well-ventilated room will help to stop problems such as damp and mould. If the room does not have adequate ventilation and you plan on having a shower, then ventilation in the ceiling is a must-have. However, ventilation systems are not needed if there is enough natural ventilation.

Plumbing and pipe access

Plumbing is a key factor in bathroom conversions, and the exact location of pipework will influence the cost of your conversion. Costs may escalate if the intended room is not located near the bathroom pipework due to the additional work required to connect the piping.

Does your bathroom have natural light?

Bathrooms with natural light are highly desirable compared to dark bathrooms. Consider a room with natural light unless you are happy to have an artificially-lit bathroom.

Privacy issues

The very nature of bathrooms makes them private areas which are a key factor in your bathroom conversion. If your bathroom overlooks a public area, we will suggest window treatments for an extra layer of privacy.

Budget – how much can you afford?

Before calling our team and enquiring about the converting bedroom into bathroom cost, it is important to have a set budget for your bathroom works. We suggest that you only spend in relation to your property and interiors. Investing in a luxurious all marble bathroom that is out-of-place in your home may not always add value to your home.

Floor and walls

Most bedroom walls and floors are unsuitable for use as a bathroom. A new bathroom conversion may require new walls and floors. Our experienced bathroom fitters will design and fit walls that are suitable for bathrooms.
