Planning your bathroom layout can be a daunting task.
Picturing what your shower or basin choice will look in your bathroom space is difficult. Fortunately there is a range of, free, easy to use, online bathroom planner tools out there to help.
Suppliers and manufactures use these tools as a great way of advertising their products. So be aware that, at the end of the day, they are trying to sell you something. But none the less, they provide a great visual and you are not obligated to purchase from these companies.
Many of our clients [we are Plumbers in Melbourne, Australia] have come to us with design ideas from using these tools, so I thought it would be helpful to list our Top 5 FREE Bathroom Planners.

Then you can choose from Reece’s extensive range of plumbing products and place them in your bathroom. The planner has a ‘print’ function which prints your layout, along with a list of products used.
