I've been a little absent over the weekend; I wish I could say it was for something as glamorous and exciting as London Fashion Week, which began over the weekend but no, Mr. S&S and I have been on the hunt for a new bathroom. We're not just feeling extravagant, this is definitely something that has been a long time coming, our bathroom at the moment somewhat resembles a Swedish sauna with varnished Pine being the decorating material of choice. The suite itself is fine in theory, it does the job but it could definitely do with a spruce up. The main reason however is that we don't have a shower. I know what you're thinking, what bathroom these days doesn't have a shower?! The answer - a miniscule one! So this is how we spent the weekend, hunting online and trawling the high street for a bathroom we not only loved but also something affordable (what with the whole money-saving theme and all).
While on our search it became clear that any deals to be had were going to be ending soon so I thought I better share some of the good'uns with you while I can...
We ending up going for a bathroom from Victoria Plumb. There are bathroom suites which include the lot, bath/shower, sink and loo but I found it was actually cheaper on this site to buy the sink and loo as a pair and get the bath separately - here's what we went for (prepare to be excited! oh and ignore the teal)
|Energy Bathroom Suite Pack - Victoria Plumb|
At only £98 for loo and sink (reduced from £288) This was the best price I came across for a design that was actually ok - you really can't go wrong with a plain, white, modern suite.
Other sites that had good deals available were:
|Cambridge free-standing bath - Bath Store|
At £299 reduced from £569 it's the ideal answer to a little luxury for less - who can resist a freestanding tub!?
|Kensington basin & washstand - Fired Earth|
And when money is no object I'm heading straight to Fired Earth. The Kensington basin and washstand - £850 reduced from £1000 - I'm in love!
