Each install is different though. When I had one of our bathrooms redone 'on the cheap' it still came in at 3.5 to 4k. The job did include removing the rotten wooden floor, new tiled floor, plastering walls and ceilings, some electrics, moving pipework etc. If you're simply being quoted for a replacement of furniture and tiles, then that's pricey. I'd hate to think what my install would have cost at full-fat prices.
If you go for a named brand (eg Kudos), it'll be much easier to get replacement bits like seals etc when needed. Manufacturers with their own customer service support can make this type of thing a lot easier than just some rebranded stuff via b&q etc.
These are poor quality with poor reviews. I'd avoid anything Cook and Lewis from experience. Victoria Plum I have found much better. Not a bad price tho :-)
Anyone recommend a thermostatic shower with head and hand unit please? Thinking of going for the grohe 260 euphoria but that's coming in at £350+. I know grohe come with a 5 year guarantee and some of the cheaper versions are like £100 but they are very light and plasticky. Don't know any other good company which has a good guarantee but are known for the quality of their products.
I fit bathrooms for living.find cooke&lewis luxuriant enclosures most akward to fit.few flaws in design itself.cant comment on model shown in the photo,but door version its just awful.also check other tradesmans review on b&q website.

My grouse with Betterbathrooms is they don't reveal the tile thicknesses in the shop display plus the displays hide how thick. Their wall tiles turned out to be thicker than expected and it was difficult to get the right metal edging (that had to come from Wickes). Mitigating factor was that they have some late night click and collect warehouses, this came in handy to buy a pack, ordered evening collected at 9pm, when we ran out the day before tiler finished.
if you're gonna fart then sex is deffo off the menu! #gaschamber
thanx buddy for explanation, it helps others to decide whether to buy from this seller or from elsewhere thanks again for ya help
4mm is horrible, get 6 or 8
I bought a number of items from them and the quality was poor. Even now I have a toilet that sometimes continually runs because the flush plate mechanism is a bit dodgy, not ideal when your on a water meter and the kids flush it and don't realise that its still running. At the time the items were replaced several times each. To their credit, they were good about sorting out the exchanges. However this resulted in me incurring a number of additional charges because i'd lined up a plumber to fit the items, but given the poor quality they said that they wouldn't fit them because they would just end up leaking. Better Bathrooms offered to compensate me for the additional plumbing charges, but when i followed up on this they stopped responding to my correspondence. I would normally have used the sale of goods act to get a full refund for everything, however the plumber had already fitted the wall hung brackets etc and they'd been tiled over. So I was pretty much left at the point of ripping out all the tiles and having different toilet bracket fitted or attempting the exchanges. This caused me a lot of needless stress and much expense, so I just can't recommend them and hope that no one else goes through anything similar. I'm feeling the stress even now as I type this, sorry to be so negative, but it was a very painful experience.
EXCELLENT find OP!!!! Bought 2 lots for doing 2 en-suites. Woman behind trade counter was gob smacked with price. The enclosure only is dirt cheap too at £115 to say it's 6mm toughened glass. Worth considering this if anyone is looking to mate it with a stone cast tray as opposed to the Resin tray with this offer.
Off my receipt the EAN/Barcode is listed as 04216520
Plus delivery, similar spec to Cooke & Lewis Exuberance from B&Q at £148. Depends if you want to deal with a nationwide company for £23 more or a regional one. You might get lucky and wait till January to see if B&Q have any offers on shower enclosures which I have seen on previous years.
8mm frameless option £269 there are discount vouchers available too http://www.betterbathrooms.com/1200-x-800-aquafloe-elite-8mm-sliding-shower-enclosure/ never heard of company before but have other stuff arriving tomorrow hopefully all will be good
We found one same size on better bathrooms website for bit more cash but 8mm glass and much less chrome/s.steel but in the end went for this one as its 10mm glass so thought it would look classier only drag is 2 months til it arrives and again has more metal but the slide function is better http://www.betterbathrooms.com/trinity-premium-10mm-1200-x-800-enclosure/ £415 will find link for 8mm frameless option
Double checked - it's 1850, which is the same as others and over 7ft 6 inches
I saw the shower enclosure in my local jtf, it looked very cheaply made, bit of a false economy!
ok if you are doing a house up to sell, very good selling point to potential buyers :)
Do not buy these cheap baths. I bought one thinking it was a good deal . It was so thin you could feel the plastic shaking in and out when yOu where in it. I had to have it removed and purchased a more expensive one from homebase.

We had the 3rd sink delivered last night,still defects in it,so no toilet and now no sink so we've had to cancel the installation next week,I give up.
We are in Manchester and weren't offered this option,would have gladly done this as now we have declined 2 sinks and onto the 3rd being delivered.
was typing on my phone. Have now corrected my error!
I would also advise people not to be seduced by the reviews on the website. The reason there aren't any bad ones is that they don't publish them! I wrote a well-deserved scathing review and it didn't make it onto the website! I noticed someone else posted about Better Bathrooms. I did have a better experience with them but I went to the warehouse myself and you were advised to inspect the goods before you took them away. I did go through several items before I found undamaged ones so was glad I hadn't ordered them to be delivered. If anyone lives close enough I would recommend looking online, then looking in the showroom, then driving to the warehouse to collect. Bit of a faff but not too bad if you live nearby and means you don't have to wait in for delivery or risk getting damaged goods and having to mess around returning them and getting replacements.
Vitreous or vitreous china are both the same and refers to the coating that is put onto porcelain products giving a hard scratch free easy to clean none staining hygienic surface.
Having just had a new bathroom, if you compare victoria plumbs sale price with others standard price, you will find there just like DFS was £2000 then £1000 now £300 and it was only ever worth £200 it's just a marketing con. But gulibal people have been suckered in for years, that why they keep doing it.
Thanks Mod - tried to add the image, but couldn't get the image added :-)

First of all good deal, but beware of actual size- this is basically the smallest size of shower out there, so it is really tight in there. I've experienced being in one and found it way too snug- don't drop your soap, you'll not have room to bend down and pick it up! Unless you need to squeeze a shower in somewhere, personally I would try and find a deal on something a bit larger. Again, as a deal a good find, so heat added.
I think it can go both ways depending on which way you wanted.
Does anyone know whether the door opens inwards or outwards.. i think its inwards but I'm not sure...?
