Planning A Bathroom Renovation?

Here’s What You Need to Know

Bathroom renovation

What do I need to consider when planning my bathroom renovation?

We often get used to laying in our baths looking at the walls covered in ancient tiles and decoration that is just past its sell by date. Bathrooms are often the last room we get around to ‘doing up’ when we move into a new home. So, there are a number of steps that will help you when you decide it is time for the bathroom you have been dreaming of.

Firstly, you will need to consider your budget. Work out how much you can lay out for your bathroom renovation, and bear in mind this figure might need to be higher than you think. In old houses especially, hidden problems can become apparent as things are removed in preparation for new things to go in. You should always make sure you have a small ‘float’ to cover such unexpected expenses, should they arise.

Next you will need to think about the space you have available. If you’re lucky enough to have a larger bathroom, you will have a lot more freedom over the placement of baths, showers, sinks and storage. If your bathroom is smaller, you will need to be realistic about how your bathroom can be.

However, a lot can be achieved in a smaller space. There is no need to compromise too much on your dream bathroom renovation. There are many clever space ­saving storage solutions available that can maximise the space in your bathroom, and lots of design tricks that can be employed to make the most out of what you’ve got and give the illusion of a larger room.

Step One: Your Design

After we visit your home and see your current bathroom layout, we can talk through what you wish to achieve and the best layout for the space available.  With your confirmation we will proceed to draw up the design for your new bathroom.

You might be under the impression that you need a big space to create an impressive bathroom, but this simply isn’t the case! ACR Plumbing & Heating can transform even the most modest space into a sanctuary to be proud of.

Step Two: Installing Your Bathroom

To ensure your bathroom conversion is completed to the very highest of standards, we can start from the very bottom. We passionately believe that quality is paramount, and our skilled tradespeople will work together to bring your dream bathroom design to life. You are free to source and purchase your own sanitary ware; however, we can take care of this for you if you wish.


Bathroom conversion is by nature a disruptive process. Your bathroom will be out of action for the duration of the project, and you will likely find yourself inconvenienced as a result. This cannot be avoided. However, we can assure you that our tradespeople are polite, courteous, and aware of how stressful this kind of construction project can be. We will always endeavour to leave things as clean and tidy as possible, and work to a tight schedule to ensure your bathroom is back up and running as soon as possible.


There is nothing quite like unwinding in a soothing, well appointed, practical yet beautiful bathroom at the end of a long, hard day.

Of course, bathroom renovation is not a small or cheap project to embark upon. Like any construction project it will be disruptive and could be expensive. However, we believe that bathroom renovation is worth it. Your bathroom is the room that most of your guests will use at some point, and we want our home décor to reflect ourselves and our individuality.

ACR are a well-established company of over 30 years, we have the experience and skills to carry out your bathroom conversion to the highest standards. So, you can rest assured that your bathroom will be completed to the highest standards by an award-winning company you can trust.
