How does the price affect the quality of bathrooms?

Bathrooms come in all shapes and sizes and the quality of the materials used varies considerably.

When you set your budget for your bathroom, we recommend you consider quality, choice and longevity. If you want good quality, a wide choice of styles and fittings and a bathroom that will last 10-20 years, go for the mid-range option. Here’s a guide to the difference between low, mid and high range bathrooms.

Characteristics to budget bathrooms:
  • Thinner baths
  • Flexible shower trays
  • No adjustment on drawer boxes
  • Reduced opening on drawers and less stability
  • Less choice of colours
  • Repeating patterns on tiles (the same pattern over and over again)
  • Thinner ceramic which can be prone to thermal shock
  • Ceramics with more ripples in
  • Tiles that are not always flat or level and sizes that slightly fluctuate tile to tile
  • Standardised product selection
Characteristics to mid quality bathrooms:
  • Thicker, more durable baths
  • Solid shower trays
  • Cutable shower trays with colour options
  • Fully extending drawers
  • Stable on the drawer box
  • Ceramics that are flatter
  • Thicker ceramics
  • Complete selection of good quality matching brassware
  • Matching Accessories
  • Tiles that have a pattern across multiple tiles (less pattern repeat)

How far will we travel?

Like most, we don’t like to turn down business, but our whole model is built around trust and honesty. That’s why we limit ourselves to distances of roughly 1.5 hours from our store (around a 35 mile radius).
