    I am looking to buy two bathrooms shortly including shower trays, glass, shower enclosures, bath, basins, you get the idea.

    Does anyone have a reccomendation for where I should go, I am looking for mid market products which should last or can anyone reccomend B&Q, Homebase, Wicks etc? I have heard conflicting views about some of the better known on line places.

    My answer depends on the answer to a question back.

    How long are you intending to stay?

    If it's 2 yrs plus then I agree 100% with the guys because all the 'sheds' & online retailers generally import pretty poor quality products.

    If you have to live with it, use it and maintain it then get products with a proper reputation to uphold. I'd go so far as to even say stay away from the likes of Frontline as in my experience over its existance is that it simply does not standup to family use.

    I can’t recommend any of your places.
    I can recommend buying quality branded materials like Hans grohe taps. Kudos shower screens and vitra pottery.
    Then you can buy those from the cheapest place.

    Avoid big sheds, avoid buying on price based decisions .. unless of course you are doing a dirt cheap make over and sell on
