If you are on a limited budget, buy an entry-level bathroom suite and allocate the majority of your funds towards premium fittings, such as the shower and taps. Keep the design as pared back as possible so there’s less danger it will date – you can always make a fashion statement with tiles, towels or a striking basin mixer tap.
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.
