The joy of giving

As we know Christmas is a traditional time for giving as well as receiving gifts from family and friends, the tradition came about of course, is to remind us of the presents given to Jesus by the Wise Men which were Frankincense Gold and Myrrh. However, the giving of gifts in the New Year is growing tradition when we go to a New Year party and of course it is very traditional in the Chinese community who celebrate their New Year, the year of the horse, on January the 31st so we thought it might be rather nice to suggest some gifts from our catalogue that can be given at any time of the year.

Very popular is the range from our accessories page which features bathroom accessories that can add that touch of luxury to your bathroom, en-suite or cloakroom. The Inda Gealuna Accessory package is a beautifully designed Italian set and represents amazing value. With the set are a double robe hook, tumbler and holder, toilet roll holder and multifunctional towel rail and liquid soap dispenser.

Perhaps the Burlington Classic set with the emphasis on classic old styling may be more appropriate if you have a Victorian or Edwardian style of bathroom; the set relies on modern technology but with yesterday’s styling of the towel ring, double robe hook, tumbler with holder, toilet roll holder and WC brush holder with matching brush

Less expensive but a product that will not look out of place even in the most expensive bathroom, the Twist four piece set gives the most used items on one low price set using top quality manufacturing techniques from Bristan, a well known and respected UK manufacturer and distributor of top quality bathroom products. Their taps and accessories can be found in homes across the UK giving a guarantee of quality and design that is the envy of the world.

Another great idea is the gift ideas on the our Pinterest site which is brimming with suggestions at a full range of prices from the simple designer magazine rack, or luxury towels in soft and luxurious 100% Egyptian cotton, to the ultimate bathroom luxury! Aquavision 40″ Framed Waterproof LED TV.

With the help of UK Bathrooms, you need never be short of a brilliant gift idea to give to a loved one, family or friend at any time of the year.

 

Creative Small Bathrooms

Creating a unique space in a small bathroom can be tricky, whether a simple guest toilet under the stairs or a small en-suite. Houzz have featured a great UK Bathrooms design on their 8 Clever and Creative Ways with Small Bathrooms feature. They look at a number of unique bathroom designs all fitting into small spaces, showing how a little creativity can really brighten up even the smallest bathroom.

Simple updates such as bold wall covering such as the design from UK Bathrooms to unique fixtures and fittings can have a great effect. The fixtures and fittings featured are from Burlington which can be found on our site and as you can see fit perfectly into an under stairs toilet whilst having an impact in the small space.

Being creative with your space, enables you to get the most out of your room, no matter what the size. Not many people would consider putting a toilet in their under stairs cupboard, but they can be more spacious than you realise and with well-designed toilets and sinks you can easily add a guest WC.

Eco friendly taps

During the recent dry hot spell of weather that we have been enjoying it serves as a timely reminder that water in this country is a precious commodity and although it might not seem so in the winter period reservoirs do run low and water companies have to begin reducing pressure.

With this in mind many companies are now manufacturing eco friendly water saving devices and amongst these are taps for use in basins and baths. Bristan are amongst these and the chrome-plated Bristan Jute Eco-Click Mixer Tap is a pleasant modern design which offers water saving and also can prevent scalding. This tap is a mixer and includes a special temperature limiter that prevents the user from scalding, which is set at the time of the installation of the tap. With aerator flow and a device which adds resistant to the taps to discourage the user from increasing the flow, it saves both water and the temperature setting device means that you are also saving money by using less energy to heat the water. Two eco features in one.
