Are we seeing the Death of the Bath?

Recently we researched the buying habits of our customers, here at UK Bathrooms. We noticed the trend when buying a new bathroom suite was that many people opted for shower enclosures rather than bath tubs. In the past 12 months we have seen a 54% decrease in bath orders whilst at the same time a 72% increase in shower enclosures. More information on our study can be found here at; Death of the British Bath.

Small bathroom with shower over bath

Small Bathroom with shower over bath

As we are living increasingly busy lives, the opportunity to relax and have a nice hot bath have disappeared. Instead we look to clean ourselves as quickly and as easily as possible. This coupled with the fact that people are constantly short of space in their houses, especially new builds, it makes sense to fit a space saving shower cubical rather than a bath. This means not only do you clean quicker it’s you also have more space.

Space saving shower enclosure

Many people who bought a shower enclosure or walk in showers from us said that they chose this option over buying a new bath with a shower over because of the space saved and the time saved showering. However this was something they only considered when re-modelling their bathroom. With many happy to stick with a shower over a bath until they could afford to make changes.

Wet room bathroom also works in small spaces

wet room 4

Shower cubicles, shower enclosures, walk in showers and wet rooms are available at UK Bathrooms. Each can fit small and unique spaces, coming in a range of sizes and styles so there is something to suit yours and your family’s needs and the space you have. We also specialise in en-suite bathrooms, where many people choose to fit a shower instead of a bath due to size constraints of these added rooms. We also have a wonderful range of baths, if you still like the option of taking a bath.

 

Designing a small modern en suite

One of the most luxurious things you can add to your home is your own en suite bathroom. Unfortunately, many homes don’t have a lot of room where they can build one, but even a wardrobe sized space can fit a tiny en suite, and there are plenty of ways to make it feel a little bit bigger than it really is.

If you want your en suite to look modern and uncluttered, you need to be careful what you choose to put in there. Try to keep the number of bottles and towels low or store what you need in the bedroom. If you really need some storage in the en suite itself, have open shelves so you’re not calculating how much room you can spare for doors and drawers.

Lighting is one of the easiest ways to improve a small room. If there’s no window, it’s particularly important to design your lighting strategically. Halogen spot lights will brighten the room within invading the space, and using mirror or mirrored surfaces to bounce the light will work wonders.

Choosing the right tiling too will make a huge difference to how your little en suite looks – the lighter the colour of the tiles, the better. Anything reflective or lightly coloured will make the space seem much larger. The size of the tiles is also important – very large ones can give the illusion of a more open room, and very small ones, such as mosaic tiling will have the same effect. Too much repetition on medium sized tiles will shrink the room though.

You should always remember to measure your shower, storage cupboard and toilet fixtures before installing them in a small bathroom and figure out the layout first. They might appear to fit but block your access to the door or shower if not laid out properly.

 

How to create a vintage style bathroom

Vintage style is all the rage at the moment, from clothing to interior design. But the problem with having authentic vintage pieces in your bathroom design is that they’re more prone to going wrong, breaking or leaking because of their age. Instead, use modern pieces with vintage twists to get that shabby chic look but with more reliability.

Vintage Bathrooms

‘Shabby chic’ is the easiest way to make something look older but still fresh and interesting. It’s also very simple to create unique pieces yourself at home too. For example, find a fairly cheap picture frame that fits your basic mirror and choose a paint that fits in with your colour scheme; the most popular for vintage style rooms is pale pastels or cream. Once it’s painted and dry, use some light sandpaper to scrub away some of the paint around the edges where there would generally be more wear and tear. Finish it with a cover of varnish to seal the design.

Retro pieces can also bring a bit of life to your bathroom. Old fashioned bathroom suites are becoming more popular again, such as those peach or avocado coloured baths and sinks you might remember seeing in your grandparents’ bathroom. You can find a great choice of vintage and traditional baths here. In a range of wonderful retro colours. Mixing and matching individual pieces and accessories around these will give you that lived in feel that’s cosy and unique to you. Please see the baths below for more ideas.

A bathroom can add value to your home

A well thought out bathroom, which does not have to be outlandish, can be a huge asset to your home, often it is the simple layout and clean cut lines that are the ones that prospective home buyers like. Modern fixtures and fittings can make a big impression too, and even if you do not have enough room for a separate shower cubicle, a digital thermostatic mixer unit over the bath can catch the buyer’s eye. Certainly today, a shower is a must and with the huge array of shower packages that are on the web pages, choosing one within your budget is easily attainable.

One example of an eye catching bathroom is the Asti Essentials Full Bathroom Suite, competitively priced and modern, the Asti is sure to suit all homes. The package offers the Essentials Eternity classic basin and pedestal in a gloss white high quality ceramic finish along with the Essentials Dawn Basin Mixer tap and pop-up waste package. Back to the wall toilet with soft close seat, Essentials single ended bath. Also included, the Sommer shower double door enclosure, Mira Coda exposed valve thermostatic shower kit; this shower adjusts to any sudden change in temperature to avoid scalding.

Monza Basin, WC, Shower & Bath Suite

It can be sometimes a little bit daunting trying to decide on individual items for a new bathroom suite, but for many getting the right package from the shelf is not only the easy option, but usually it can be an enormous money saver as well. One of the many examples from the UK Bathrooms web pages is the Monza bathroom suite package which can save you £899 and on top of this saving it brings a touch of luxury to your bathroom too.

The package consists of a Villeroy and Bosch washbasin and pedestal, Carron Quantum bath complete with panels where appropriate, Subway Open Pan, Rear Cistern and soft close seat, Matki Radiance Original Curved Corner Shower Surround and tray, Hansgrohe Croma 100 Multi Combi shower set, with basin and bath mixers from Hansgrohe.

Phoenix Complete Bathroom Suite 6

The “complete suite” option is the most common route people take when they buy a bathroom suite and there is plenty of choice in design colour and make. The one-stop-shop package deals usually represent excellent value for money and can work out a lot cheaper than if you buy all of the components that make up a bathroom suite individually.

Naturally the size of your bathroom is a major determining factor when choosing which bathroom suite to buy. Large bathrooms give you scope to include a freestanding bath, double washbasins or vanity unit, a separate shower cubicle and bathroom storage. Small bathrooms will restrict your choice to the items that will physically fit into the space that you have. One example of many is the Phoenix Complete Bathroom Suite 6, this includes a Viso bath, Wenge wash stand with aluminium door and VB039 vanity bowl, Morley close coupled WC with chrome dual flush and matching white seat, SQ series mono basin mixer with klik waste and SQ series bath filler & klik waste. This modern white bathroom suite is the complete solution when looking for a cost effective new bathroom.
