has anyone had this done or got any clue how much i am about to spend?
Am just in the process of almost exactly the same thing!
We have had wall knocked down between small loo and bathroom, to make bigger bathroom. The builder's quote for this, including blocking up one window and replacing another, lowering ceiling over shower area to blend loo ceiling with sloping bathroom ceiling, and preparing the walls for tiling, painting etc. was £2320. Think there may be extras as he is also going to board the floor ready for new lino...
Not finished yet, but trying to coordinate with entire new bathroom suite, new shower and adding central heating too!
Then of course you have to add the cost of the tiles, tiler, flooring etc. electrician costs, lights, heated towel trails etc
In my experience so far, everything costs a bit more than you think, and takes a lot longer than you'd think too. Also, when knocking wall down, seems to create dust throughout whole house, so remember to shut doors to other rooms.
oo thanks scarlet does that include bath suite or is that just for builders costs? how long has it taken so far?
jazz - i suppose i want plain white suite but am not keen on plastic baths so may go for steel/iron if that's available.few rows of tiles round the bath and plain painted but replastered walls lino fine for floor
