3D Design Service at UK Bathrooms

Q: How long have you been with UK Bathrooms and what is your role for the online bathroom store based in Ripon, North Yorkshire.
A: I’ve been with UK Bathrooms for nearly 2 years initially in Product Marketing before beginning my current role as a Design Consultant for our 3D Design Service. I work with customers on a one to one basis, guiding and advising from the planning and layout of their new bathroom to bespoke product sourcing if needed. I use over 20 years of interior design experience and architectural drawing skills to develop a 3D visual of their brand new bathroom, without them having to leave their home.

Q: How has your career path led you to this role?
A: Throughout the last 20 years I have worked in Interior Architecture. I have experience with virtual software and this coupled with my design skills allows me to offer our customers a service which brings their new bathroom to life – before they purchase!

Q: What specific qualifications and experience do you have for your role?
A: I graduated with a BA Hons in Interiors Architecture and have worked with architects, interior designers, bespoke manufacturers of kitchens and bathrooms and bespoke manufacturers of hardwood orangeries both in the UK and abroad.

Q: How do you balance your career with your home life?
A: My hours are flexible at UK Bathrooms and I have a peaceful art room at home which allows me time for myself when needed and gives an ideal environment to design and be creative.

Q: What do you find most challenging at work?
A: Ha-ha that’s really easy – time! The 3D Design Service at UK Bathrooms is a new service but a service that is already proving very popular!

Q: What do you like most about working for UK Bathrooms?
A: 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone. What I like best about my role at UK Bathrooms is that it is means I can continue to work with customers and continue to design new bathrooms which they love and which they will enjoy for many years. All from the comfort of their own home.

Q: Looking at ukbathrooms.com you have many brands, do you have favourites?
A: Most definitely, though perhaps I shouldn’t divulge! I love BC Designs baths and basins with their natural materials and design style combining organically sensuous shapes with contemporary clean lines. I also like Victoria+ Albert, Perrin & Rowe, Zehnder Bisque, Crosswater, VitrA, Villeroy & Boch and brands such as Trojan. That’s one of the other joys of working for UK Bathrooms, we have a plethora of brands from which to choose products, definitely spoilt for choice.

Q: When it comes to designing a new bathroom what inspires you most?
A: Nature mostly. I adore natural materials and combining these with organic shapes and a modern contemporary twist. Many of our brands combine these natural products and design styling with state-of-the-art manufacturing and technology producing the highest quality products.
