If you want to add extra storage to your bathroom, one of the best ways to make use of space is to install a vanity unit in place of a traditional basin and pedestal. Vanity units are a great option if you want to store plenty of toiletries, and keep the surfaces in your bathroom beautifully clear. A unit is also a good idea if you want to stow away cleaning products. Choose a Victorian-style washstand with a wooden cabinet for a country-style look. Alternatively, hi-gloss wall hung units are a good option for small bathrooms, as the extra floor space makes the room look larger (and makes cleaning easier too). When buying its a good idea to double check what’s included – some vanity units are freestanding and come complete with taps, others are units that are designed to be part of a fitted bathroom, with tops, waste and plinths bought separately. Take a look at our pick of the best.
Decide whether or not you want shower valves to be exposed or concealed. Exposed shower valves work well in a modern country scheme and are also easier to install. But if you want a super-sleek look, a fixed rainwater shower head with concealed pipework can’t be beaten. If you only install a fixed shower head, it can be hard to avoid getting your hair wet – annoying if you don’t shampoo every time, and they’re not terribly useful for cleaning the shower. The best solution is to include a handheld shower as well.
