With all that choice it’s easy to become overwhelmed and concerned about making poor selections. However, with a bathroom suite you have the benefit of the designers having already pieced together for you the perfect bath, toilet and vanity combination, which means you can focus on additional elements such as faucets and towel rails. Suites have the added advantage of being more affordable than purchasing separate pieces so why not consider the following buyer’s guide to bathroom suites and reap the benefits for your bathroom renovation.

Your Design Preference

The best place to begin when it comes to choosing a bathroom suite is to decide on the type of interior design you would like to see at the end of your project. Is it an ultra modern look you desire, a Victorian inspired retreat or a room that reflects your appreciation for timber or something else altogether? Once you decide on the general look and feel you will be able to narrow your search to those particular genres.

Select Pieces

The space you have to work with in your particular bathroom will obviously have a major impact on the type of suite you choose along with the budget you’ve set. A suite that boasts a huge bath might not be ideal if the space you have available is limited. Consider the space and the basics you would like to include in your bathroom. Is a separate shower a must or would a shower bath be the best use of space? Many suites include mirrors and cabinets so if these items are important then list them down along with the other major pieces such as corner bath, wall hung vanity and so forth. You will find there are bathroom suites designed for compact rooms and others designed with a family in mind. Once you know your specific needs and wants it will be easier to compile a short list of your favourite suites.

Consider Quality

When you start to narrow down your list of preferred suites it’s time to consider the quality and guarantees being offered. Most manufacturers offer guarantees of one or more years right through to lifetime warranties so be sure to investigate the guarantees on the suites you are seriously considering. Consider the materials the pieces are constructed of, for example, is the bath made from durable high quality thick acrylic? Does the vanity offer soft close drawers and doors? Comparing products thoroughly at the outset will ensure you get the best value for money in the end.

Creating a magnificent looking bathroom doesn’t require you to be a design genius; you can simply make use of the wonderful array of designer bathroom suites that are now available from all good bathroom supplies stores. From sleek modern sets through to traditional suites that offer timeless elegance, you will find the perfect fit for your design tastes and bathroom space.
