Buyer’s Guide: Bathroom Suites

Whether you are completely renovating a bathroom or simply making improvements it is vital that you choose the bathroom suite to best suit your given bathroom space. It is important to take your time on this important decision, as getting to grips with the huge variety of traditional, modern and minimalist designs can be tricky. Remember that you will use the bathroom on a regular basis, and inevitably have to live with your suite decision, multiple times daily for a long time to come. So how should you go about choosing bathroom suites?

Choosing Bathroom Suites

What Should Your Initial Considerations Be?

Colour SchemeThere has never been such a huge selection of bathroom suites to choose from as you will find in today’s bathroom market. For this reason it is important to have in mind a look and overall effect or mood you would like to achieve with your bathroom design. You need to consider colour schemes, lighting and how the bathroom will fit in with the rest of your home before choosing a bathroom suite.

Easy Access BathroomsIt is also important to think about the size of the suite within the room, and the functionality of the suite; would you like to install eco-friendly features or do you have any special access requirements? If you struggle with mobility you will find our easy access bathrooms section has the perfect solutions for you. Once you’ve decided on what to prioritise between practicality and design – or an attempt to achieve both – you can start browsing the vast collection of suites.

There are no set rules when it comes to choosing the perfect bathroom for you, luckily the vast range we have here at Bella Bathrooms means we are confident everyone will find something to suit their ideals. Despite this it can be much easier and more affordable to buy all of your matching bathroom fittings together as a package.

Our Guide to Choosing Bathroom Suites:

Be Coordinated

AccessoriesBathroom suites are simply the best way to achieve a streamlined, coordinated finish in the bathroom. With a sleek wash basin, toilet and bath, it is a stylish option that many people prefer and ultimately looks cleaner and more attractive than differing features. We have a fantastic range of modern suites and traditional suites to ensure you can find the perfect match to your bathroom ideals. Making sure any additional features and accessories keep to theme also helps to achieve this continuity. Keeping your bathroom fabrics to theme will further help your design.

Save Time and Money

Bathroom Suite PackageTrudging around showrooms for numerous weekends and spending hours online searching for the ideal bathroom fixtures can be extremely tedious – and may even result in choosing bathroom fittings you don’t particularly like to end the tiresome searching process. Choosing a bathroom suite certainly saves you time, and more often than not there is a good chance it will cost less too. Even top-end bathroom designers are realising the need of suite package deals, and usually offer a discounted price on their full bathroom suites.

Straight Bath SuiteHere at Bella Bathrooms we aim to offer these package deals to make even the more luxurious bathroom suites affordable. We offer straight bath suites from some of the UK’s leading manufacturers to make updating your bathroom straightforward and not overly expensive. These standard suite packages include a toilet, basin and standard shaped bath.

Make the Most of the Space

Moods MicroThere are many bathroom suites specifically designed for smaller bathrooms or oddly shaped rooms. With limited space, it is vital to design a floor plan and ensure your favourite suite will be able to be installed comfortably. Making sure you are aware of the space you have to work with will help you know what is possible to achieve in your given space. Larger bathrooms can make the most of the space with a large, free standing bath which neatly matches the rest of the suite. For smaller bathrooms, it is suggested to opt for wall mounted fittings to give the illusion of more space due to more floor space being visible.

Toilet & Basin UnitIt is always worth sacrificing the size of a necessary suite item like the toilet if it allows you those extra few inches for a more luxurious bath or shower. There are a good range of small toilets now that you can opt for a space saving design without anyone realizing! You can even buy combined toilet and basin units which really help to save space in your bathroom.

Shower Bath SuitesIf you long for a shower and bath in your bathroom but are restricted by space then our range of shower bath suites provide you with the ideal solution. Shower baths combine a shower and bath in one unit to allow you to choose between bathing and showering without compromising space in your bathroom.

Position of the Bathroom Suite Items

Traditional SuiteTo save you money it is easiest to update your bathroom by switching your old bathroom suite for new as it means you don’t have to consider any plumbing issues by repositioning suite items. However if you think your space could work better for you then a complete overhaul will ensure you end up with a bathroom that works perfectly for your needs.

Sliding Shower DoorWhen starting from scratch with a bathroom design you need to consider how closely positioned you want bathroom suite items to be. You must remember to leave space for any additional accessories that you might need such as a bathroom bin or toilet brush holders etc too. Another important consideration is remembering to allow for the opening of any doors. Shower doors in particular can be quite large and hinged doors which open into the room must be accounted for. If you’re short of space then a sliding shower door might suit you best. This may also impact where you place any vanity units or storage cabinets too.

Additional Bathroom Spaces

En Suite BathroomsIt’s not just the main bathroom that we offer suite packages for due to the demand from modern homes featuring more than one bathroom space. If you want to update your en-suite then we have a range of en suite bathrooms for you to choose from. These feature a shower enclosure with a toilet or basin of a similar style. Choose the enclosure that will best fit your en-suite space and the style that you are going for. From standard square enclosures to smooth shaped quadrant enclosures you can create a designer style in these smaller bathroom spaces too.

Cloakroom SuiteIf you are looking to create a cloakroom space or update an existing space we have a good selection of cloakroom suites. Again you can choose from varying styles spanning traditional to contemporary styles. These suites combine a toilet and a basin or a toilet and a vanity unit depending on which you would prefer for your cloakroom.

When attempting to find your ideal bathroom suite, you should talk to a professional who will be able to recommend the best fittings for your needs. Once you’ve established a style and what functional necessities the room requires, you should be able to narrow down your search. Whether you prefer a classic design or a contemporary feel, a bathroom suite is your best option and we have a generous selection for you to choose from here at Bella Bathrooms.
