|Removing décor from a bathroom||£50||£125||£75||£188||£100||£250|
Taking down the décor in a bathroom can be more complex than in other parts of the house, as there may be tiles to remove as well as paint, wallpaper, mirrors or affixed storage units. There are also pipes to deal with, along with the usual electrics, so some parts of the work will need to be done more carefully than if working in a bedroom.
What you will get with a professional working on the removal of your bathroom’s current décor is a clean set of surfaces for your decorator to then work on. The cost will depend on both the size of the bathroom as well as the difficulty of the task. High ceilings and ageing tile work will add to the labour time and therefore the price of the job. You should allow at least half a day for removal of décor from your bathroom.
Remember to factor in time to remove items such as blinds, curtains or carpets as needed. You can do this yourself to save money, or your decorator will be happy to do it for you as part of the job. Removing tiles and wallpaper are likely to be the most time-consuming part of the job, but the decorator should have the tools, along with wallpaper steamers, to do the job efficiently.
Crumbling walls or damaged plaster work will need to skimmed, filled or made good before the decorator can start work on redecoration and your tradesman will also sand down skirting boards or other woodwork as needed. They will then take away any waste materials such as old wallpaper.
