How to measure your bathroom

Here’s how to measure your bathroom in 7 easy steps.
1. Choose a starting point and measure along the wall from one corner to another. Make a sketch of this wall, along with the measurement on your paper.
2. Working clockwise, measure along the next wall from one corner to another, then add this to your drawing.
3. Repeat step 2 with all remaining walls. This will leave you give you the floor plan of your room. If your room is irregular in shape (L shaped or T shaped for example), divide it up into rectangles and measure these individually.
4. Now measure the height of all your walls from floor to ceiling.
5. Measure windows, shelves and any other permanent fixtures, then mark these down on your sketch.
6. Measure doorways and add these to your sketch. Also indicate which way the door opens and the clearance that’s required.
7. When you’re supplying measurements to us take a few pictures from different angles on your smartphone or tablet and send them in an email.

Finally – this means we can give you an estimated possible cost for your bathroom.

Just a couple of things to remember…

For a more comprehensive bathroom measurement, you may want to measure and mark down the position of existing fixtures, like your bath, toilet, basin or shower enclosure. You may also wish to mark the position and direction of your waste, to help with plumbing.

Not all walls or floors are completely straight—variations can occur, especially in older properties, so it’s worth taking measurements at different points throughout the room.

Use one measurement unit and stick with it. Bathroom products are usually measured in millimetres (mm) these days, so if you are working in imperial units, you will need to convert at a later stage.
