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.
Options for wall-tile types include glass, ceramic or natural stone. There are matt or gloss tiles, and you can have small mosaic ones right through to large tiles, which can make a space-limited bathroom feel larger.
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.
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%.
