It might sound like a lot of work, but you can keep all the heavy, manual labour down to a minimum simply by hiring the right plumber or contractor to fit the suite for you. In the last few years bathroom costs have been consistently dropping to keep in line with demand, and even the cheapest bathroom still offers all the essential fittings and fixtures that you need for a comfortable suite.

So getting down to business: exactly how much does a new bathroom cost? Well, final figures will always vary according to the type of suite you want and the quality of materials you choose, but generally a new bathroom cost will never exceed the £10,000 mark (not unless you’re really extravagant and have an especially large bathroom!) That said, you will still need to draw up a sensible budget so you know exactly how much you can afford. To help give you an idea of how much all the special features and extra touches to a new suite can set you back, we’ve outlined the cost of a new bathroom according to the different styles the market has to offer.
