When it comes to decorating, specialist tile paints can give you a new look without the hassle and expense of retiling. Alternatively, consider using board panels – waterproof boards that can be easily secured to the bathroom wall. They come in plain or patterned designs, and some even give a tile effect.
Freestanding bathroom furniture and cabinets are usually cheaper than built-in, and often offer more flexibility. From full-length shelving units to mirrored wall units, the options are seemingly endless. They also mean you can make use of your walls and the height of your room.
You don't have to stick to the well-known bathroom brands for furniture – many other stores, including John Lewis and Argos, sell freestanding bathroom furniture and bathroom cabinets. Just check that the furniture is intended for use in the bathroom, as it will be exposed to a lot of moisture and heat.
It's not just bathroom brands we've assessed - we've also rated power and electric shower brands and tested electric showers in our labs. To find out what genuine customers think about their showers we asked over 3,000 Which? members about the models that they own. This feedback, on major shower manufacturers such as Mira and Triton, has enabled us to give each brand a unique customer score plus star ratings for important factors, such as their showers' build quality and ease of use.
