A Couple Of Highly Recommended Websites

When you're buying as much as we've been buying for the house over the last six months you need to get the best possible value for money and the best service. As we were ordering from the caravan, which is over five hundred miles from the house, there was no chance of buying locally so the internet was the only real option available. We used a lot of  household names such as Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and NEXT and all of them were extremely good but several lesser known sites also performed fantastically and deserve a special mention as they were were brilliant to deal with.

Bolton based Boundary Bathrooms provided almost all of the fittings for the family bathroom and en-suite. I don't have a wide angled lens or you would get a better idea of how good both rooms look. The staff at Boundary were always helpful; the prices were always competitive; deliveries were prompt and efficient and when I ordered a shower screen that was not the right size, they made a real effort to arrange a refund despite a delay of several months before we realised our mistake. They always returned calls promptly and made a big effort in helping us to sort out the replacement shower screen.They also followed up after orders to check if all was okay. If you are looking for anything for your bathroom make them your first point of call - you won't be disappointed.

We  came across when browsing for a couple of light fittings. Their prices looked good and there was a loyalty scheme where you earned cash back towards your next order so we gave them a try. The lights arrived next day and we were very impressed. So when we needed more lights we went straight to Wayfair's site and started to browse. It was only then that we realised just how many items they had on offer. It is no exaggeration to say that there were a thousand or more lights to choose from. They ranged from a few pounds to thousands. We bought lights for bathrooms, hall, landing, stairs and a number of table lamps.  Browsing the site we found that lighting is just a small fraction of what they sell and we went on to order a couple of breakfast bar stools from another amazing selection running to many hundreds. Prices are very keen, choice is amazing and when our builder pointed out to us that a light fitting was broken (months after it was delivered) even though we told them that we were not sure how and when it was damaged, Wayfair exchanged it without a quibble - now that's what I call service. 

We wanted towel radiators in the bathrooms and WC. could not have been more helpful. They were let down by a supplier but  pulled out all the stops to find an alternative quickly and efficiently and most probably at a loss to most of their profit margin. If you need a towel radiator you're sure to find one to suit your needs there.
