Nice to hear some positive comments on Roca, set my mind at ease as she has chosen a few Roca items.
Do you need strong water pressure before installing a pump like that? Where I live currently we sit at the top of a hill and the water pressure is abysmal.
I believe the pump has to be installed in a system where the hot and cold feeds are from a tank rather than mains. So in my case I have a system boiler with a hot water cylinder and a cold water tank in the loft.
I had some fitted furniture from Howdens and Wickes. Howdens didnt last too well (doors started to discolour and split), but i still got 10 years out of it. The Wickes stuff is still going strong 14 years on.
Ive used Roca ceramic ware with no issues,I even had Lidl taps last really well, that said the ideal taps i have now feel alot better, but were alot more expensive. When i do the bathrooms again, i'd spend more on the shower enclosure and tray, a friend has just has some 10mm thick glass shower enclosures fitted from VP and its so nice.
When we did our en suite we spent a good amount on the shower tray and enclosure. The previous owners had installed an awful plastic tray a 4mm enclosure, we replaced it with a stone resin tray and 10mm enclosure and there's a huge difference. The tray doesn't flex and the screen feels good and solid.
Can someone have a gander at my bathroom list and see if I've forgotten anything?

Is your installer providing tile adhesive, grout and trim? Are you going for new radiator valves?
Yes installer is providing the tile stuff. Not sure what to do about rad valves whether TRV, etc. Thanks I'll add to my list.
Toilet roll holder? Get the installer to install it, it can be a complete sod of a job to drill tiles if you don't have the proper drill bits.
Good point, added to the list. Drilling tiles is a right pain in the arse.
All you need is a masonry bit and a drill in drill rather than hammer mode. It’s not difficult at all.
Really good quality stuff and the designs are nice too. Not aware of any installation problems and never had an issue with the stuff we’ve had.
