Simple Bathroom measurement guide

Before you start to plan your dream bathroom, one of the most important things is to get the size of the room right! This is a simple bathroom measurement guide for you to measure your correct bathroom size.

Preparation

Prepare a piece of paper (if you have the graph paper is even better), a pen and most importantly a tape measure or a laser measuring tool.

Taking the Measurement

  1. Indicate where your door and window(s) are.
  2. Measure the door or window(s) from one outside edge of the trim to the other outside edge.
  3. Double check your measurements by measuring the entire wall length from wall to wall and comparing it to your individual measurements.
    For example AB+BC+CD=AD or AE+EF+FG=AG

Things to consider

Ceiling Height

If you’re wishing to sneak a bathroom into that area under the stairs or fit one into loft area, you need to make sure you check the ceiling height.

You should be especially aware of the area that you are intending to place a shower enclosure! You will need to bear in mind that if your enclosure is going to sit on a tray your 2-meter enclosure might be a lot taller on your chosen tray. We do offer shorter models and slim trays, just get in touch with our sales team for advice! Furthermore, make sure the awkward space has been taken note of and marked up in the plan.

Door position

Remember to note whether your door goes inward or outward! This will be affecting your space planning process.

We will keep publishing more guides and tips to help you plan your dream bathroom! Stay tuned!

Yorkshire Day 2018

Ay up lad! – today is Yorkshire Day! This year, Yorkshire Day is hosted by the city – Ripon, where UK Bathrooms is based! Yorkshire Day is always celebrated on 1st of August and this year is certainly no exception.

History of the Yorkshire Day

Yorkshire Day signifies to the Battle of Minden on August 1, 1759, when British forces bypassed through gardens in Minden which were blossoming with roses. The British troops picked white roses and placed them in their helmets and coats. The allied soldiers defeated the French, it was then decided that Minden Day, 1st August was the perfect day to mark Yorkshire Day.

Ripon is hosting a parade through the town, a commemorative service and children’s activities. As the celebration this year is just around the Corner of our head office, UK Bathrooms team visited the town centre to get into the ‘Yorkshire Day’ vibe.

There will also be a picnic in the Dean’s Garden, live music from Ripon City Band and Mancunian Steel later on in the evening. Followed by a special edition of the Ripon horn blowing ceremony, a centuries-old tradition which has taken place every night since 886. Finally, we will finish of the day with a “reet-grand” firework display!
