Hello World! Buying a new bathroom suite is a big step. It is not a small item. Even though costs have fallen drastically over the past decade or so, they are still not cheap. Not to mention the fact that installing one is a complex task that only the bravest DIY homeowner can tackle on their own, so you may also have to pay plumbers to install it for you.
As a result, choosing the wrong bathroom suite is something you really want to avoid, at all costs. This means you need to do your research and spend some time shopping around to get the best deals.
The first step when buying a suite is to choose a style you like. Doing this will quickly narrow down your options, and help you with the next steps.
Will it fit?
You also have to work out how much space you have, so you do not end up choosing a suite that is too big. Measuring your bathroom is the first part of this process, but you also have to check where your pipe work is located and mark that on a plan of the room.
Choosing a suite that has a toilet with a soil pipe that is located in a different position from your existing one means extra work. It will be possible, but only if you pay to have the pipe moved, which you need to be aware of and factor it into your costings. If you want to work out if you can do this job yourself, and save yourself some money, take a look at this page.
How practical is it?
Another important consideration is how functional your bathroom suite will be. If you cannot easily get in and out of a bath, or that is likely to be the case a few years down the road you do not want to buy one with a bath. If you decide you really want a bath because of the way it looks, in these circumstances, you need to consider buying a walk in model.
At this stage, you need to look at each fixture and ask yourself is it big enough, and can it be fitted at the right height? You should also think about how each member of the family will use each item in the suite, and ask yourself if it is suitable for that purpose.
Getting the best price
Once you have done the above you will be in a position to shop around for the best deal. Doing so will save you a huge amount of money.
Prices vary widely. For example, those who buy their bathroom suites from betterbathrooms.com benefit from a price guarantee and free delivery, but have to pay for installation. Whereas, some local bathroom stores offer free installation as part of their package.
Therefore, it is always worth getting quotes from several places. You just need to be sure to review the quote thoroughly and double-check what is included, so that you can compare them properly side by side.
Thank you for stopping by! Go with God and remember to be kind to one another!
