Replacing the mirror and/or door handles can also make a difference, as can seemingly small touches such as the hand towels. 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. Always check that what you're doing complies with current building regulations. If you decide to hire a professional to fit the bathroom you have chosen, get quotes from three suppliers. If the retailer you're buying your bathroom or fittings from offers to fit it too, compare the installation costs on offer to those of another local fitter – 42% of people in our survey found their bathroom installer themselves as opposed to 30% who used an installer from the company they bought the bathroom from. 9% of those who found and used their own installer did so because the quote they got was cheaper.
Bathrooms are one of the most popular and commonly remodeled rooms in the home. And since they are a high-traffic space (and one where updates are noticeable), doing so can have a significant effect on resale value. When starting a bathroom remodeling project think about utility as well as design. Bathrooms are often difficult jobs because multiple components must be arranged to fit–and function–in a small space. There's also multiple water elements so doing the project correctly, from plumbing to ventilation, is imperative. Due to frequent use and the resulting wear and tear, bathrooms tend to start breaking down after about 20 years, whether that's a perpetually leaky faucet or crumbling grout or chipping tiles (or all three). On average, bathroom remodels cost $16,724, so your design should be both intentional and strategic in order to secure a high return on investment, as well as to create a functional space. That said, bathrooms are typically small, enclosed rooms so they are also a place in your home where you can play around a little bit with color and texture.
Your bathroom or shower room should be functional and practical, but also a place where you can unwind. Read on for tips and advice on how to strike the best balance. Whether you have a small or large bathroom, you'll want to get the best for your money. That's why we surveyed Which? members to find out what they thought of the big bathroom brands they've used, including Bathstore, Victoria Plum, Homebase and B&Q. Visit our guide to the best bathroom brands to find out which came top for quality of products and finish, customer service and value for money. Bathrooms come in all shapes and sizes, as do the budgets to create them. Whether you're putting together an en suite from scratch or revamping a wet room, the most important thing to think about first and foremost is who will use the bathroom and how, as this will affect how you design it.
