Bathroom / March 2, 2018 / Esmeralda Grayson.
That's why we've asked bathroom owners to rate not only the bathroom brand they bought their suite from (toilet, sink and bath) but their bathroom furniture, too. Below, you can find out what customers thought of B&Q, Bathstore, Plumb Center, Wickes, Victoria Plum and Ikea bathroom furniture when pitched against online bathroom suppliers and independents.
If most of the walls are tiled but some surfaces are painted, simply changing the colour of the paint can achieve a whole new look. And because of the relatively small amount of wall you have to paint, it will take less time and money than redecorating an untiled room. Do make sure you buy paint that’s suitable for bathrooms though – ideally, you want to go for an anti-mould, gloss paint.
As well as rating shower brands based on customer feedback we also test individual electric showers in our lab. During this assessment we look at how powerful each model is, whether the water temperature it produces drops or increases when someone else uses the water supply elsewhere in the house, and how long it takes to get back to normal if that happens.
Your bathroom's layout will in part be determined by what storage and bathroom furniture you need. Start by thinking about how you use your bathroom. What do you need space for and how much will you require? How regularly will you use different things and how easily will you need to access them? How much do you want to hide away or have out on display?
