Measuring where you want your bath to go is the crucial first step. You should not only measure the length and width, but also the height. Make sure your bath will fit under your existing bathroom taps, you may need a plumber to move them to fit over your bath. It’s a really good idea to do this before you start to tile your bathroom. Check that you have enough clearance around your bath to clean and dust.

With our last bathroom renovation the outlet was at the end of the bath, this is where all the plumbing was laid out to suit this outlet position. The new bath had an outlet in the middle of the bath.  This is easily fixed with an attachment hose to fit underneath the tub and direct it to the old plumbing.  Visit your local plumbing store.
