Bathroom / March 7, 2018 / Esme Jean.
If you’re not sure you can afford an entirely new bathroom, there are ways to give your existing one a fresh new look on a budget, without replacing the sanitaryware (toilet, bath, sink and shower).
The top brand got an impressive customer score of 84%, while the bottom just 59% - a 25 percentage point difference. Three companies got a maximum of five stars, an 'excellent' rating, for both quality aspects. Only two well-known brands to get four stars ('good') for customer service, and one brand got just two stars - a 'poor' rating
If you’re on a budget but want to do more-serious work, for example replacing fittings and fixtures, we would only advise DIY if you know what you’re doing, or you could end up having to pay more to get things fixed than you would have if you’d hired a professional in the first place. Only 9% of the 3,982 people we surveyed installed their bathroom themselves.
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.
