How to measure a bathroom

Measuring a bathroom will take you around 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the room. Here are the simple steps to completing an accurate measure of your bathroom.

  • Sketch the room layout from a birds eye view, including the door, window and all walls within the bathroom. You can also include a sketch of the items in the bathroom such as the bath, shower, basin or WC.
  • Once you have completed a sketch of the room create a starting point in one corner of the room and begin to measure the wall from one end to the other. Make a note on the sketch of the wall measurement. This could be in CM, MM, Feet or Inches.
  • Repeat the second step and measure the other 3 walls and mark the sketch to reflect the measurements.
  • The next step is to measure the ceiling height of the room. To do this you will need to measure the walls from floor to ceiling, again mark this measurement down on the room sketch.
  • Next is to measure the windows and any permanent fixtures. To measure the window you will need to measure the width, height, depth and the measurement from both ends of the window to each wall.
  • Once you have measured the window you will need to now measure the door. The door measurements you will need are the width and again from both ends to each connecting wall.
  • The last step in measuring a bathroom is to take pictures. If you are going to be creating a bathroom quote or design from your measurements, pictures will help guide the process and give the designer a better understanding of the room.
