Bathroom / April 10, 2018 / Esmeralda Grayson.
If you have quite a lot of space, you could have a much more expansive vanity unit that spans the width of a wall (like in the picture at the top of this page). Most of the big-name brands sell a range of vanity units, but if you have the budget and want something very specific, you could also consider asking a builder to make bespoke bathroom storage for you.
If you are lucky enough to have a cast-iron bath but the ceramic covering has started to crack, consider buying a resurfacing kit or hiring someone to do a professional job for you, rather than replacing it. When you come to sell your home, buyers tend to rate period features.
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.
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.
