In this special edition of What's Your Budget?, we take a look at some beautiful bathroom suites you can buy on a budget of £400, £600 and £800!

Simple Bathroom Suite

As you may well know, we've put together several bathroom suite WYBs in the past so we thought we'd finish off with a special feature of ‘What’s Your Budget?’ for bathroom suites. In this special feature we take a look at bathroom suites on a budget, but instead of 5 suites under X amount of money, we take 3 different budgets and focus on 2 great suites in each. So, without further ado, here’s 6 bathroom suites you can buy for a budget of £400, £600 and £800.

● Bathroom Suites Under £400
● Bathroom Suites Under £600
● Bathroom Suites Under £800

What exactly is a bathroom suite?

Typical bathroom suites consists of a bath, basin and toilet. The word suite has the potential to confuse and sometimes leads people to believe it’s a full bathroom with all the trimmings. Seasoned bathroom suite buyers will be all too familiar with the different packages available, but new buyers may not realise that with some suites, you may not even get a bath! It’s important to check out the package features of a bathroom suite before buying one you like the look of and don’t be scared of creating your own bathroom suite by mixing and matching individual products you think work well together.

Below we have featured both modern suites and traditional bathroom suites which we think you’ll love, but if they're not exactly what you're looking for then we hope they can inspire you to create a unique variant of your own. At the end of each featured suite we have a 'Looking for something different' section to give you an alternative idea.

How does the WYB special feature work?

Unlike a typical ‘What’s Your Budget?’ feature which looks at 5 products you can buy under one budget amount, this special feature looks at 6 bathroom suites over 3 different budgets. That means we’re going to look at 2 suites you can buy with £400, 2 suites under £600, and then 2 more suites for an £800 budget.

Let's get started...

Bathroom Suites Under £400

Carlton Traditional Bathroom Suite

It’s true that traditional bathroom suites are hard to find at low prices. They tend to cost more than modern bathrooms because their contents are high quality and styled on a period look, but the Carlton Traditional Bathroom Suite defies budget logic.

With a stunning traditional bath complemented by the Carlton toilet and basin, you get an elegant full bath suite which will look fabulous in any period bathroom. Imagine taking a long relaxing soak in that bath and drifting back to those years gone by.

Price = £319.95*

Change from your budget = £80.05

What could you buy with the change? You'll have a great deal of money left over from your budget if you choose this bathroom suite. Your traditional bathroom will look amazing with some floor tiles. Consider patterns or monochrome for a totally traditional look!

Why choose this bathroom suite? WYB says “Have you seen that price?”

Ivo Modern Shower Bath Suite

A modern bathroom suite should be practical and stylish. The Ivo modern shower bath suite combines style and function by giving you an L-shaped shower bath, also known as a square shower bath, which will fit nicely into most of today’s modern bathroom layouts.

Not only do you get lots of additional space for showering and bathing with L-shaped shower baths, but you also get the matching shower bath screen to prevent water splashing outside of the bath. The toilet is made from high quality ceramic and has a dual flush option; perfect for saving water. The gloss white finish of the basin creates an ultra-modern feel which ties everything together brilliantly.

Price = £359.95*

Change from your budget = £40.05

What could you buy with the change? Our advice would be to put your change towards the Acrylic End Panel for 1700mm L-Shaped Baths if your shower bath isn’t being fitted against the wall. This will finish off the look beautifully.

Why choose this bathroom suite? WYB says “Modern style and comfort!”

Setting a budget for your bathroom suite

As you can see, it doesn’t matter what your budget is there is a bathroom suite for everybody. Setting aside a budget for a suite is important to ensure that you don’t spend too much. As we’ve mentioned throughout this guide, a bathroom suite does not always include items like tapsflooringwall decoration and showers.

A typical bathroom suite comprises of a bath, basin and a toilet so make sure you factor in the cost of additional items you’ll need to complete your bathroom makeover. If you have all the extras but would just like to change the main items then feel free to go all in on your budget.

Price, style and quality

Quality on a budget is a hard thing to find when buying anything yet bathrooms tend to be one of the rare areas where you can get excellent quality for a low price. If you want exceptional quality it does pay to spend more although mid range suites can really throw up some very well built offerings. Paying extra will obviously bring higher quality to your home and if that’s what you really want then a bigger budget will be a good idea.

Style is never compromised when it comes to bathrooms and it’s not uncommon to see low budget bathroom suites looking just as good, if not better, than some of their higher priced rivals. Our advice is to pick something you think looks great and matches the price you’re happy to pay. We may have picked out 6 bathroom suites in our Special Edition WYB, however there are hundreds more to choose from.

We hope you enjoyed this special feature of ‘What’s Your Budget?’ and have taken some ideas and inspiration from it for your next bathroom suite. We’d love to hear any suggestions, feedback or questions you may have so please leave a comment in the comments section below.
