How to find the best value bathroom products

Keeping your business cost low is important to make your business successful with a healthy profit margin. Find out some of the ways you can find the best value bathroom products for your jobs.

Which brands offer the best value bathroom products?

When it comes to buying the best value bathroom products for your jobs, it really is a case of you get what you pay for.

In a room that sees as much usage and wear and tear it’s important to use products that are of good quality. Not only does this provide a good customer experience, but it also saves you time by reducing service calls or return visits to fix issues.

These brands have a good reputation with mid-range prices:

  • Ideal Standard
  • Mira
  • Grohe
  • Roca

If you are looking to maximise profit on your bathroom jobs, make sure to choose products that are easy to work with, have good availability, and that you like installing. All of these factors can save you time, which in a direct and indirect way, saves you money.

As a business owner of course you will be focussing on making sure you use the best value bathroom products but that being said, maximising profit is important but not at any cost. Using subpar or very cheap products can damage your reputation and ultimately harm your business.

Best value bathroom products – what to avoid

This is really obvious but as a reputable tradesperson, you should be avoiding really cheap low-quality fixtures and fittings. As the old saying goes, “If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.”

Some distributors or wholesalers provide bathroom value packs but choose these with a word of caution. Ask yourself, and the sales staff, why these items are being sold at such a low price?

Bathroom product spares

Another important consideration when looking for the best value bathroom products is how easy are the items to fix, maintain, and get spares for? Buying cheaper fixtures and fitting can seem like a good idea, but if they have a reputation for being tricky to repair, this could cause you headaches from day 1.

Although it doesn’t affect you directly, consider how your product selection will impact the customer. If the products you choose are hard to clean and maintain, this could lead to problems for the customer who as a result, may not see your work favourably.

Bathroom product warranties

When you’re considering the best value bathroom products you should also factor product warranties into your decision. Standard manufacturer warranties can range from 1 to 25 years, so this is something to bear in mind. If something does malfunction it’s important to know the time frame in which you can provide a repair or replacement to the customer without this denting your profits.
