Bathroom / February 26, 2018 / Jayda Hummel.
This year, we asked customers about the durability of their bathroom suite and its different components - bath, shower cubicle, sink and toilet. Only three big brands were rated as 'good' (four stars) for durability overall. All the rest got three stars. The results for individual components saw star ratings ranging from three to five stars.
As well as possibly using tiles for your floor, you'll need to use tiles on the walls around the shower or bath, which should be added after they're fitted. You can also get the same tiles for your bathroom walls and floor if you want a streamlined look.
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.
Each brand is rated for customer service, quality of products and finish, durability and value for money, as well as an overall customer score. Not all the brands scored well - the difference between the top and bottom big-name brand is 23 percentage points.
