Been wistfully gazing in the windows of bathroom showrooms around the Sutton area? It’s only natural! Many of us wish we could invest in a brand new bathroom, but not everyone is in a position to be able to. If you’re taking the plunge, then we recommend you come visit our bathroom showroom. As a bathroom store boasting strong relationships with a number of prominent manufacturers, we have a range of fantastic fixtures available at very competitive prices. Below we’ve laid out some tips for prospective clients contemplating splashing out, but who don’t yet have the time to visit our bathroom showroom near Sutton.
Bathroom Planning Tips
Consider the Space You Have
It’s worth measuring your bathroom and making a note of where wiring and pipes lie. Remember, relocating wiring and pipes to accommodate a design will likely be more costly than building around it. Some of the best designs our bathroom store near Banstead have brought to life for clients in Sutton are minimal ones. If you only have limited space available for your bathroom, cramming it full of fixtures and miscellanea items will most likely make it look cluttered. Keep it simple.
Set a Budget
Setting a realistic budget is one of the first things you should do before getting into detailed bathroom planning. After all, it’s quite easy to get carried away, especially after seeing what our bathroom showroom has on offer! A 24crt, diamond studded bathtub might be going overboard. Our bathroom store near Sutton sells bathrooms at lower, mid-range and higher price points, so there’s something for everyone. Expect to spend in the £500-£2,000 range on the fixtures themselves, not including installation.
Choosing a Bath & Shower
Some of our Sutton clients choose to forgo a bath in favour of a standalone shower. Others swear by a good soak, and like to buy a roomy, premium bath because it’s going to get a lot of use. Shower wise, there are a variety of types available. These include power, electric, mixer and digital showers. For more information on the differences between them, call our bathroom showroom or pay us a visit.
Choosing a Toilet & Sink
Bathroom sinks come in all shapes and sizes, and can either be freestanding or sit within a storage unit/cupboard. Vessel sinks, which appear as bowls sitting upon a countertop, are also becoming increasingly popular. Don’t just consider the style, however.
Also give thought to the material it will be made of and how high it will reach. Toilet-wise, choose from wall-hung, back-to-wall, close-coupled and corner toilets, all of which are available at all good bathroom showrooms, like ours near Sutton. There are also a range of flushing styles, including dual flush, power flush and gravity flush. Each will affect how much water it uses.
