Retile Existing Bathroom

We moved into our house 9 months ago and we would like to re tile the bathroom that was
put in by the previous owners. The suite is very good quality but the tiling is not quite our taste.

How easy would it be to do this? I have removed tiles before with a club hammer and chisel which can be hard work. is It likely that I would damage the suite ?

Thank you

Photos of the bathroom layout will help.

As Wayners says, you can tile over tiles but that depends on many factors- eg, the adhesive previously used, the weight of the old and new tiles. The depth of the new tiles- will there be enough play in the pipes, shower screens etc.
