• My girlfriend bought a 1 bed flat earlier in the year and she's booked in someone to do her bathroom up. I think she got fleeced by her decorator so keen to help out more on thus. She fot a couple of quotes and this seemed like the best, and he came recommended.

    I'm a bit confused by the quote and trying to help her out. The guy doing it will answer any questions regarding fittings but there's a lot of margin for error for her to order something shit by accident or something not be there in the right timeframe.

    Any tips? Any good places to order a suite from? Will be asking the guy to check everything is okay!

    I hopefully complete on my flat in the next month or so and I've got bathroom/kitchen and stuff to do so will be keeping my eye on the thread!


  • Also, can't recommend EC1 bathrooms enough, great service and range, plus they do decent discounts.
    Crosswater are a good brand for taps etc
    Arte From if you want something a bit fancy
    Lusso Stone are decent and sit somewhere in the middle.
    Bath wise, can't go wrong with Bette steel baths plus they are beautiful.

    I'm guessing the waste thing is to save the fitter time and money, I dont think trades are allowed to use tips for free (my local doesnt allow any vans). When I got my bathroom done recently they filled the entire front garden with all the crap they tore out, would have been about 6 trips in a car and then would have still been left with a bath.

  • When I had my bathroom done recently they left the old bath out front while they were sorting waste and it was taken by somebody within about 5 mins.

    But yeah I wouldn't want to be sorting waste myself. Although I have had good results with those people who just turn up and load it all into their van (ie no skip required). Could be viable if you have somewhere like a garden to keep it in, in the meantime.
