Just because money is tight, it does not mean you cannot refurbish the bathroom. Just cut you cloth according to your means.
Cheaper materials are not always poor quality. The suite was bought for under £1,500. There is a budget base, I do not advise going below. For example the bath waste on this suite was too cheap and I had to replace it with one that cost £20. The cheap £10 waste was distorted and impossible to seal.
But the right choice of materials, design and colour can bring impressive results. As you can see here.
