Bathstore bathroom durability
We asked customers about the durability of their bathroom suite and its different components - bath, shower cubicle, sink and toilet.
Bathstore bathroom furniture
Bathroom storage and furniture are key components of any bathroom design, and can make a big difference to how well the bathroom works for you on a day-to-day basis.
That's why we've asked bathroom owners to also rate the bathroom furniture brands they've bought from, in addition to their suite. And not all did well - the top gained a customer score of 84%, while the bottom got 59%.

Bathstore's bathroom services
Bathstore has everything you might need for your bathroom - suites, flooring, heating and lighting. However, in June 2019 it went into administration and was subsequently bought by Homebase in July 2019.
You can still shop for its suites by style - traditional, contemporary, space-saving, easy bathing, on a budget, boutique etc - or by range. It has a number of different ranges, including one created in collaboration with Elle Decoration magazine. But a lot of what is being sold now is stock clearance.
Bathroom showrooms: You can currently still go in store (although a number of branches are being closed down, so use its online 'store locator' to find one near you), order a printed brochure, or shop directly from its online catalogue.
Homebase is also planning on opening a number of Bathstore concessions within its stores over the next 18 months.
Planning/design service: Free in-store consultation called Home Design Service using its 3D planning software. You'll need to book an appointment and bring along your bathroom measurements. Bathstore can also visit your home to double check your measurements. You can start your planning by using its free online 2D planning tool.
Bathstore sells everything you might need for your new, stylish bathroom
Installation: Optional fitting service called Expert Installation Service at extra cost organised and carried out by Bathstore.
Showers: Bathstore sells a range of power, mixer and electric showers including ones from Aqualisa and Mira. It also sells shower enclosures and components for wet rooms.
We've rated well-known shower brands and tested electric showers to find out how reliable they are and whether they deliver on the manufacturer's claims.
Bathroom furniture: Wide range of bathroom furniture, including bespoke and built-in units, as well as standalone cabinets. These include 'space saving' and 'budget' units.
Bathroom fittings, flooring and tiles: Bathstore has a big range of bathroom fittings, decorative extras and wall and floor tiles.
