A good bathroom suite is a combination of several key factors that contribute to its functionality, aesthetics, and overall quality. Reliability of function over style should probably your highest point of concern.

Quality fixtures and fittings: Look for fixtures such as faucets, showerheads, toilets, and sinks that are made from durable materials and have good build quality. High-quality fixtures will not only last longer but also provide better performance and reliability. Take a look at the thickness of your bathtub.. some will be thicker and stronger than others. Some will be double skinned acrylic. 

Style and aesthetics: Consider the overall design and style of the bathroom suite. It should complement your personal taste and the overall theme or design of your home. Look for a suite that offers a cohesive and visually appealing look.

Space utilization: A good bathroom suite optimizes the available space efficiently. It should be designed to make the best use of the bathroom area, ensuring that fixtures and fittings are well-placed and allow for easy movement and functionality.

Functionality and convenience: Consider the functionality of the bathroom suite. It should meet your specific needs and provide convenience in terms of storage, organization, and accessibility. Look for features like ample storage space, well-designed vanity units, and easy-to-use fixtures.

Comfort and ergonomics: The suite should prioritize comfort and ergonomics. For example, the toilet height, bathtub shape, and shower size should be comfortable and suitable for your needs. Pay attention to details that enhance comfort, such as soft-closing toilet seats and well-designed shower enclosures.

Ease of maintenance: Choose a bathroom suite that is easy to clean and maintain. Materials that are resistant to stains, water spots, and scratches can make cleaning tasks more manageable and ensure the suite's longevity.

Energy efficiency: Consider eco-friendly features in the bathroom suite, such as water-saving faucets, dual-flush toilets, and energy-efficient lighting. These features not only help conserve resources but also reduce utility bills over time. Heat retention will vary between differing qualities of bath tubs.. and needless to say the deeper or longer the bath tub the more water it will take to fill.. and keep warm.

Budget: Finally, consider your budget when selecting a bathroom suite. It's important to find a balance between quality, functionality, and cost. Determine your budget and explore options that fit within your financial constraints while still meeting your requirements.

The last bit of advice we could offer at this point is.. if you have children, keep them in mind when you are reviewing each of the above points. No point going for a glossy high end spec work of art if it's likely to suffer from 'elements of duress' from your little angels. #justsaying
