Find out what Better Bathrooms offers after going into administration early in 2019 and read our most recent Better Bathrooms reviews.
2019 has been a difficult year for Better Bathrooms, having gone into administration early in the year. It still trades online after being bought by Buy It Direct.
Better Bathrooms used to have a number of showrooms and trade counters, but these were all closed in early 2019.
The company's new owner – which also owns Furniture 123, Laptops Direct and Appliances Direct, among other brands – sells its products online with the same betterbathrooms.com address.
Because of its recent difficulties, we haven't rated Better Bathrooms this year. But read on to find out how we rated Better Bathrooms previously, as well as information on what products it sells and services it now offers.
