What do bathroom design consultants do?

Contemporary bathroom

Bathroom installers specialise in the physical installation of a bathroom, including plumbing, joinery, tiling, decorating, and electrics.

Whereas, bathroom designers take on the technical and creative role of planning and designing a functional and aesthetically pleasing space that meets your needs and taste.

A bathroom designer’s work includes:

  • Booking an initial consultation to understand your needs and preferences
  • Researching ideas and creating moodboards to match your taste, style, and budget
  • Sourcing and collating innovate products and solutions to support the overall design concept
  • Recommending all the necessary items or parts from a technical point of view
  • Helping you to select the best materials, fixtures, and fittings for your design, needs, and budget
  • Presenting 2D or 3D visuals of their bathroom design plans and layouts
  • Purchasing the various components of the approved design
  • Project managing the bathroom install

Questions to ask a bathroom design consultant

We now have a clearer idea of the role of a bathroom designer, but how can you be sure you select the right person for the job?

And what questions should you ask before appointing a bathroom design consultant for your project?

What’s your design style?

A good designer should be able to listen to your needs and preferences and make recommendations to suit them.

Having said that, you’ll get a good gauge of a designer’s style by asking to see examples of their previous work.

Checkatrade members have a business profile page on our site where you can view photos of past projects and check out customer reviews.

What’s the scope of your work?

We outlined the typical scope of a bathroom designer’s role at the beginning of this post, but do ask your consultant what their fee covers. For example, does it include project management?

Do you work with a team of bathroom installers?

Most bathroom designers will work alongside a wider team including bathroom installers. It’s always worth qualifying this from the outset.

How do you charge for your services?

Make sure you understand your bathroom designer’s fee structure and that it fits within your budget.

It’s worth remembering that a bathroom designer will not only create your dream space for now, but they’ll futureproof it and make sure the design is long-lasting too.

Their services will also minimise the stress of doing it yourself and possibly save you money on avoidable costly mistakes.

They will also often have preferential rates with bathroom suppliers, helping your budget to stretch a little further.

How long will the project take?

The process of designing and then installing a bathroom will vary depending on the size and scope of the work and how quickly those initial design details are nailed down.

However, from experience, a good bathroom design consultant will be able to guide you on the expected timeline for your project.

Do you work on small bathrooms?

Don’t be fooled into thinking bathroom designers only work on large projects with big budgets.

There are many small bathroom designers out there who enjoy the challenge of transforming a standard or even compact space.

By looking at the designer’s website and examples of previous work, you’ll get an idea of whether they work on projects similar to yours.

Check out our ideas for small bathroom designs.

Do you have insurance?

Before giving a bathroom designer the green light, do check they hold adequate insurance.

Professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance are two of the main covers to ask to see proof of. These will protect you financially should something go wrong.

All Checkatrade members must have up-to-date public liability insurance to be listed in our directory.

Do you offer a guarantee or warranty on your work?

Your beautifully designed bathroom should be enjoyed for many years to come, but it’s good to know what guarantees or warranties your bathroom designer includes.

It’s also recommended to ask your bathroom designer for a detailed contract outlining all aspects of the project.

For additional peace of mind, it’s worth noting that when you contact a trade through Checkatrade, our guarantee could cover you for up to 12 months. You can claim up to £1,000. Exclusions and T&Cs apply.
