6. Know the factors that affect costHow much your ensuite costs will differ according to factors such as whether it’s part of a new build, or is being retrofitted into an existing home. If you are simply replacing fixtures and fittings in an existing room and leaving the layout and plumbing as is, this will be considerably cheaper than re-arranging the layout of the entire room or installing a brand new ensuite. Other factors can have a big impact on cost too, including whether there is plumbing close to where you’re installing the new ensuite that you can simply tap into, or whether new plumbing needs to be put in. If you’re extending your home outside its current boundaries to accommodate the new ensuite, this will be another added expense.Tip: When you start thinking about your new ensuite, make a list of all the fixtures and fittings that will be required on a piece of paper. Add three columns to the right of the list and call in three different quotes for each item. You have just created a blueprint budget for three different outcomes; usually a low-end, moderate, and luxury finish. A combination of all three is where most of us want our budgets to end up.
