Bathroom revamp


Our bathroom needs a complete overhaul, and wondering what is the correct order.
The existing bath, toilet, sink & tiles on the wall need replacing (no doubt removing the tiles will mean the walls will need re-plastering), and the floor needs to be tiled
Will the whole bathroom need to be gutted before work can start, or could the some of the work be done with the existing units in place
Biggest problem would be having no bathroom with the kids around
Thanks

In the circumstances it sounds more convenient to do the work in stages, but the work needs doing in the right order. For example, I would say that the old tiles need to come off before the new bath and other units that are surrounded by tiles are fitted, otherwise you risk damaging the new units when you chisel the old tiles off the wall. Also, the old tiles may be in the way of the new units, and you may want to tile up to the new units. Do you want the last bottom row of wall tiles around the bath to finish below the bath edges or to just stop short of the bath edges? This could affect positioning of the new bath and maybe the basin/toilet cistern. Timing of the floor tiling can be a bit tricky. If you leave it till last then it might mean that the tiles butt up to the new bath surround and toilet base, whereas floor tiles often look better if they are fitted under the bath surround and toilet base. If you put new floor tiles down early on you need to protect them whilst doing other work because a dropped hammer or other item could damage them. Once you have fitted wall and floor tiles you can't be going behind them to sort out any plumbing or electrical issues, other than by breaking a few. Then there's alternative arrangements for washing and toilet use. Good luck!
