Bathroom / March 3, 2018 / Jayda Hummel.
The bathroom is generally one of the smallest spaces in the house, but that doesn't mean it can't be luxurious, even on a budget. Small touches, such as expensive-looking tiles or taps, will have more impact in a small space and won't be too costly. For inspiration, flick through our gallery below for design ideas that will add a touch of luxury to any bathroom.
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.
Vanity units also allow you to play around with materials and colours. There are a lot of different worktop options, from marble effect to stone, that can bring another layer of design and a different feeling to your bathroom.
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.
