Tips to Create Affordable Luxury Bathroom Suites
Choose a Luxury Bath
For a long time a luxury bath has been seen as a desirable item for your bathroom. Whirlpool baths are extremely popular and there is an increase in the number of baths that feature jets and ‘spa’ systems yet these tend to be on the costly side. Choosing a freestanding bath can really add a touch of decadence to your bathroom space but not everyone has the room to accommodate one. You can save money on a freestanding bath as you don’t need to buy any additional panelling. Alternatively for standard baths you can create your own wooden panelling which will be more cost effective.
If a roll top bath is top of your wish list then we have the solution! The April Bentham Dove Gray bath is a stylish freestanding bath which will fit into a variety of bathroom spaces. The smooth curves and back to wall fitting is a perfect contemporary looking luxury bath and even better is offered at a very reasonable price. This luxury bath oozes class and if your budget will allow, the indulgent extras can be added on. If you love to relax in the bath at the end of the day then allow a greater proportion of your overall budget to your bath. It’s very easy with modern design to find a style of bath that will appear lavish but won’t break your bank.
Treat yourself to a Lavish Shower Enclosure
In recent years there has been an increase in people wishing to have a separate shower enclosure in their bathroom. Nothing beats an invigorating shower to start your day and there is a large range of luxury showers now available at affordable prices to meet this demand. Some people even have a preference for a luxury shower over a bath and therefore spend more on their shower area. There is now a vast array of shapes and styles of shower enclosures that you can dedicate the largest area of your bathroom to include a lavish shower enclosure.
The showers themselves are becoming more opulent in design and feature extras such as body jets and additional handsets so that you can create the perfect showering experience. When choosing a shower enclosure a handy hint to save you money is an easy plumb shower tray. This helps to keep any plumbing costs down as the waste pipes are underneath the tray instead of going into your floor boards. Check out our range of Aquadart and April Shower Trays along with the matching Riser kits for well priced yet top quality easy plumb shower trays.
Have the Best of Both Worlds – Shower baths
If you want to include both a shower and a bath in your bathroom design but you are restrained by space or money then the multi-functional shower baths provide the perfect solution. It is a luxury in itself to be able to have the best of both worlds for your bathroom – taking time out for a long soak in the bath or having a quick invigorating shower before you start your day. Shower baths will help to save you money as it is cheaper than trying to install both separately as of course you don’t have to pay for an extra shower tray and enclosure.We have two top quality shower baths available at very reasonable prices that will add a touch of luxury to any bathroom space.
The April L Shape Shower Bath will suit a contemporary space. It teams geometric lines with a minimalist design.
If an ‘edgy’ look isn’t for you then the smooth curves of the April P Shape Shower Bath with Front Panel and Bath Screen will fit the bill. The generous shower area created for the shower end will fit seamlessly into any bathroom.
Save on Your Toilet
With the best will in the world it is a struggle to make a toilet an attractive part of your sumptuous bathroom. It is not going to be the item that stands out in your bathroom and is best kept to a separate corner in your bathroom to make space for the other suite items. Save those vital pennies and choose wisely when it comes to selecting a toilet for your luxury bathroom. There is a good range of styles and shapes of toilets that will now suit any bathroom design to help the toilet fit in with the rest of the room. The RAK Compact Close Coupled Toilet is a popular choice that will create a sleek look for your bathroom whilst has the luxury extras of dual flush and soft closing seat. A toilet is a necessity and is definitely the item you don’t want to overspend on when trying to create your dream bathroom on a budget.
Buy Bathroom Suite Package Deals
When choosing the ideal bathroom suite take a look at suite package deals to save you money. These package deals offer you a good range of quality bathroom suites with reductions for buying a complete set as opposed to the cost of individual items. These are ideal for creating luxury bathrooms on a budget as not only do they offer you good reductions but the items will have been selected for the look they will create together. This takes out the worry of items matching a look when you buy them separately. We have in stock at extremely reasonable prices the April/RAK L Shaped Shower Bath and Ceramic Set which gives you a complete bathroom suite; basin, toilet and shower bath. This luxury set gives you everything in one perfect package with modern features as standard. For a more curvaceous look the April/RAK P Shaped Shower Bath and Ceramic Set will help you create a lavish feel for your bathroom.
Choose Integrated Storage
A final tip for giving you a luxury bathroom suite without over spending is to choose integrated storage such as vanity units. These team a storage area beneath a basin which saves both space and money. In a similar vein to purchasing suite package deals integrated basin vanities tend to cost you less than buying a separate basin and storage unit. There is nothing luxury about an untidy bathroom so keeping your space clutter free with a handy storage area for your bathroom essentials will help you achieve a more lavish space.
The Premier High Gloss White Vanity Unit is a minimalist style unit that offers you a generous storage space beneath a modern style basin. Offered with a choice of two basin designs and a white gloss finish, this vanity costs less than £100 making it an ideal budget yet luxury item.
