One thing we noticed when we moved into our larger offices, was the toilet really wasn’t suitable. As a bathroom retailer, it had to be a showcase room so in December 2012 we set about updating it from the truly bad state it was in to a stylish modern toilet which was also functional and environmentally friendly.
Like many old office toilets, ours looked in a sad state, as you can see below with beige tiles (coming off the walls in certain areas) dated sink and toilet and drab and dark lighting and a worn floor. So we had quite a challenge on our hands, good job we had some fantastic new products at our disposal!
UK Bathrooms Office Toilets – Before
The whole room had to be gutted, which included stripping back the old tiles on the walls, after removing the old tiles, we then discovered the original Victorian red brick tiles. Unfortunately they didn’t work with our new scheme, so we preserved them by tiling over them carefully. We also ripped up the flooring and installed new plumbing with a concealed cistern with wall hung frame. This was all boxed in neatly with the fan at one end of the room, so all the plumbing will be hidden as you can see below.

We tiled the back wall, where the wall hung toilet will go, with some lovely feature tiles, which came from our sister company Ripon Interiors, they are a Grey Mosaic sheet, by Atlas Concorde.
The rest of the room was tiled with “Trust” in silver, by Atlas Concorde again from Ripon Interiors. And the floor tiles from the Atlas Concorde Trust range were laid. As you can see from the image below, we are on the home stretch; the Roca Dama-N Wall Hung Toilet with Soft Close Seat is fitted and the radiator from Redroom is hung on the wall. The vanity unit from Roca which is part of the newly released Victoria N range is fitted alongside a tall storage cabinet from the range and the mirror also from Roca is hung on the wall.
As you can see, the new toilet, looks so much better, brighter cleaner and most of all welcoming. Everyone in the office is so much happier with the new bathroom and it’s much better when we have visitors. Not only does the bathroom look better, it also performs better. It’s much more ecological, saving water with the duel flush on the toilet and the water saving tap. Finally, the office cleaner also prefers it, as it is so much easier to clean!
