Bathroom Buying Guide
How do you decide on what bathroom to buy? Planning is key and you would need to draw out your existing bathroom to see how much room you have. Remember to put in static, non-removable items like radiators, doors and windows in your plan.

Sometimes little things can make all the difference, like having the door opening the other way (which is not difficult to do) and realising that you need standing space for when you get in and out of the bath is really important to take into consideration.

How much storage do you need? a typical family of two parents and two kids will need storage for towels, toiletries, cleaning products and a medicine cabinet. Most bathrooms are white so it is very easy to match all the cabinets, shelving and cupboards together giving the bathroom a touch of class.

Finally, there is the lighting, floor tiles and wall tiles to consider - safety is the prime consideration when it comes to the floor, good non-slip tiles do not cost that much and look great. For bathroom wall tiles, you can buy Homebase own brand that are cheap and are easy to apply. Remember if you are buying anew shower then this needs to be installed by a qualified electrician and bathroom need to be fitted by an experienced plumber.
