Bathroom / January 15, 2018 / Leah Venegas
When doing a home renovation, snags are often inevitable. But you can help to avoid tricky issues if you know what the most common ones are. We asked the same 3,982 Which? members whether they came up against any problems when they updated their bathroom and, if they did, what they were. 51% experienced an issue of some kind, and of those, the most common problem areas were: toilet 28%, shower cubicle 25%, taps 19%, sink 12%, bath 9%, flooring 7%, tiles 5%, vanity unit around sink 5%, wall cabinets/units 4%, built-in cabinets/units 2%, combined vanity unity around sink and toilet 1%, freestanding cabinets/units 1%, vanity unit around toilet 1%.
We were also able to calculate a reliability score for each manufacturer, based on how likely its showers are to experience a fault and how quickly these faults crop up (brands are punished more severely if this happens soon after purchase). Discover which brands have the most satisfied customers and which are more likely to experience a fault by reading our showers brand guide.
