Bathroom Suite Alternatives


When fitting out a new bathroom, most people believe their options are limited to the typical bathroom suite unit, which must be purchased from their local bathroom store and fitted with store-bought labour. The fact of the matter is, this is no longer the case, and bathroom suites are now not the only option for the homeowner looking to refit a bathroom within their home. Rather than pursuing the traditional route, there are now a number of more effective and less expensive ways to refurbish your bathroom, drawing on modern style elements and contemporary design without relying on the more cost-intensive, orthodox approach. And because bathroom suites are capable of increasing the value of your home, it?s a worthwhile investment of your time and money.

Rather than buying and installing a bathroom suite with shop bought labour, a more cost effective alternative might be to do the installation work yourself. Grab a few of your friends and neighbours (if they?re willing to help) and get stuck in about the installation process yourself. And you can afford to buy a personal gift for every one of your helpers, as well as an end of project meal at a fancy restaurant for less than you would otherwise have to pay for the costs of installation. Alternatively if you?re feeling brave, you could tackle the project on your own, although it will probably take longer than were you to opt for the friends and family approach.

An alternative approach to purchasing a bathroom suite is to go for a piecemeal approach, buying bits and pieces to build up the bathroom of your dreams. Without buying a suite, it can be more of a challenge to find all complimentary units, but with a bit of attention to detail, you should be able to create your own unique suite through buying individual parts. This can also work out cheaper than buying a bathroom suite, and you have full freedom over how much you spend to put together your suite and cost savings can be achieved by purchasing a slimmed-down suite designed to fit your bathroom needs.

Bathroom suites used to be the only practical solution to refurbishing a bathroom. Now, there?s no reason why you shouldn?t be more discerning and choose your individual parts, before piecing them together and installing within your bathroom at a lower cost and increased efficiency. While it might take more time to go it alone, the benefits make it a worthwhile way to refurbish any bathroom.
