Cost guide: bathroom fitters

We spoke to our Which? Trusted Traders to give you an idea of how much fitting a bathroom could cost.

In this article

If you’re thinking of getting a new bathroom fitted, we’ve rounded up the costs of some common jobs to help you work out your budget.

Our figures are only a guide to average costs, and there are several factors that can affect how much you’ll be charged, including:

  • where you live
  • the age and condition of your property
  • ease of access to the plumbing
  • how long the job takes
  • the quality of fittings and fixtures that you want to be used
  • whether the bathroom fitter is disposing of any waste for you
  • whether additional specialists, such as tilers and electricians, are needed to complete certain parts of the job.


Ask bathroom fitters to break down the quotes they provide, so you know what you’re being charged for. Get at least three quotes to get a better idea of the going rate for the work you want done.

Find trusted bathroom fitters near you. Only bathroom fitters who have passed an assessment by our trading standards professionals, and who follow our Code of Conduct, can become Trusted Traders.
