Before you buy a new bathroom suite, it’s essential to measure your space so you know the products you’ve selected will fit and work well together. Follow these simple instructions on how to measure your bathroom. All you’ll need is a notepad, a pencil and a tape measure:
- Room length and width - measure the length of each wall in turn until you have a complete floor plan of your bathroom.
- Room height - measure the height of each wall from floor to ceiling. If you have a sloping ceiling, record the highest and lowest points.
- Position of the toilet - add the position of your existing toilet to your floor plan and note down the direction of the soil pipe (i.e. does it exit into the floor, straight out of the wall, behind the pan or to the side).
- Door - add the door to your floor plan and note down which way it opens. Measure the width of the door including the frame, and measure from the edge of the frame to the nearest wall.
