Cheap Bathroom Suites: Our Guide to the Best Budget Buys

Cheap bathroom suites don't necessarily look, well, cheap. In fact, there are plenty of ranges out there offering fantastic value for money — not to mention durability and good looks. We round up some of the best currently on the market. 

What Makes Up a Bathroom Suite?

Don't assume the term 'bathroom suite' means you are getting everything you need to create your new bathroom in one handy package. More often than not, the term bathroom suite only refers to the WC and the basin (along with the basin pedestal depending on the model you have opted for). 

Taps, waste, pipework and the like are rarely included in the cost of the suite. 

Sometimes, however, you will see 'bathroom suite packages' or 'bath suites'. In these cases it is quite common for a bath, bath panels and even shower screens to be included in the total price. 

Whichever you opt for, be sure to check exactly what you are getting for your money — or else that 'cheap' bathroom suite could turn out to be the complete opposite.

1. Best Cheap Traditional Bathroom Suite

B&Q Serina Bathroom Suite

Classic good looks

Bath included?: No | Matching bath available?: No | Delivery charges: Free | Guarantee: 10 years

Traditional-style bathrooms
45 day returns policy
Basins all have two pre-drilled tap holes
No matching bath available

This is a great suite for those after classic bathroom style — and would look great in a period property, particularly in a cloakroom, where the lack of matching bath shouldn't present a problem. 

The range includes three styles of basin and two styles of WC. On the downside, those after a monobloc or mixer tap might be put off by the pre-drilled pair of tap holes which are only suitable for pillar-style taps.

2. Best Complete Bathroom Suite

Wickes Phoenix Bathroom Suite

Stylish and substantial

Bath included?: Yes | Delivery charges: Free | Guarantee: 25 years

Full suite including bath and shower screen
Undrilled bath means a wide range of tap options
Good for awkward spaces
Shower bath may not suit those with separate shower enclosure 

The Phoenix bathroom suite from Wickes really does offer a value-for-money package and includes the WC, basin with full pedestal, shower bath, shower bath screen and front bath panel. As with most suites, the waste and taps must be purchased separately. 

The shower bath is a great solution for those without the space to include a separate shower enclosure and being un-drilled means you can choose from various tap styles, including wall-mounted, pillar or mixer. 

3. Best Small Bathroom Suite

VictoriaPlum Clarity bathroom suite with straight bath

Compact bath ideal for smaller spaces

Bath included? : Yes | Delivery charges: Free | Guarantee: 12 months, although extensions are available

Five bath sizes available
Simple design to suit all interior styles
No pre-drilled tap holes
Bath panel not included

The Clarity suite from VictoriaPlum is a neat and simple little suite with a suits-all design for all bathroom styles. 

Its low price tag belies the fact that it includes basin, toilet and bath — although waste, bath panel and taps are not included in the price. 

The WC and basin and both ceramic whilst the bath is made from high-quality 4mm acrylic. 

4. Best for Budget Bathroom Glamour

Appliances Direct Park Royal Single Ended Slipper Freestanding Bath Suite with Toilet & Basin

A complete suite including a focal point bath tub

Bath included?: Yes | Delivery charges: 29.99 | Guarantee: 10 years

Freestanding bath allows flexible layout
No pre-drilled tap holes on bath
Perfect for traditional-style bathrooms
Two tap holes on basin limits tap choices
Higher delivery charges than some

Looking for a bit of drama and glitz in the bathroom? Well look no further than the Park Royal range. Its freestanding roll top slipper bath, complete with chrome claw and ball feet is sure to become the attention grabber in the room. However, the full-pedestal basin and vintage-style WC may give it a run for its money.

Whilst the slipper bath is free from tap holes, allowing for wall- or floor-mounted taps, the basin comes pre-drilled with two, limiting your options to pillar taps — although these would suit the design perfectly.  

5. Best Space-Saving Bathroom

Sanctuary Bathrooms RAK Series 600 Toilet and Basin Set

High-quality, affordable and stylish

Bath included?: No | Matching bath available?: No | Delivery charges: £25.95 | Guarantee: 12 months

Contemporary style
Space saving
No free delivery option

Smart and simple, the RAK Series 600 Toilet and Basin Set from Sanctuary bathrooms is ideal for small bathrooms or downstairs toilets, where its compact proportions would  work well.

The chunky WC has a decidedly modern look to it and the pre-drilled tap hole on the basin is perfect for a neat monobloc mixer tap.

Which is the Best Cheap Bathroom Suite?

Whatever the bathroom design you are aiming for, those keen to stick to their budget should definitely consider the Clarity Bathroom Suite from VictoriaPlum. Its very reasonable price tag becomes all the more impressive when you consider that the suite includes a bath.

However, for those after something with a little more 'wow' may like to consider the Park Royal Bath Suite from Appliances Direct — this is a stylish suite that looks way more expensive than it really is.
