Quick Delivery Products Now Available

Our brand new UK Bathrooms Express range of products

are now available for quick delivery!

 

We’ve had an exciting few weeks at UK Bathrooms with:

  • lots of new products from our brands
  • getting ready to move into our new warehouse
  • new promotions from key manufacturers that we can share with our customers
  • more new members to our UK Bathrooms team
  • the launch of our brand new UK Bathrooms Express range

We’re constantly updating our website with the latest products and offers making sure that our customers have access to the best bathroom products at the best prices but most importantly that we deliver the best service that we can. 

The last 12 months have been a testing time for all of us – but for UK Bathrooms our resources were stretched to their limits as more and more people have turned to e-Commerce providers such as ourselves.   One of our main problems being stock feeds from our brands which in the majority, are live feeds. More stress on our supply chain with Covid and since the beginning of the year, Brexit, has meant that we have adjusted our lead times and we were aware this was not always acceptable for those customers who urgently needed to receive their new bathroom products.

Our new warehouse facility means that we can take on more actual stock, in turn this means that we have launched our brand new UK Bathrooms Express range – where we can make delivery in 1 – 2 days.  As products on our site become immediately available they are automatically moved to our UK Bathrooms Express Quick Delivery page and show 1 – 2 days delivery.

UK Bathrooms Express products include taps, showers, basins, baths, toilets, mirrors, accessories etc and from our well known brands such as hansgrohe, Grohe, Villeroy & Boch, Burlington, Crosswater, VitrA, Aqualisa, Geberit, Ideal Standard, Abacus, AXOR, Laufen, Imperial and many more.Bayswater 1200 Curved Door Basin Cabinet

If there is something a customer wants that is not available our team will continue to work to source an alternative that we can supply faster.

 

 

UK Bathrooms Design Awards Winner 2020

The winning space of the inaugural UK Bathroom Design Awards has been crowned, a bold room designed to stand the test of time and passing trends, made up of monochrome tiles, tactile surfaces and, perhaps the year’s biggest bathroom trend, statement black brassware.

The space is one of the first rooms completed in the new home of textile designer Sian O’Doherty in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, which is being built so the family can live alongside to the herd of alpacas that contribute their wool to Sian’s sustainable modern knitwear business. Sian is an award-winning textile artist and designer creating beautiful and unique, ethically produced colourful fashion pieces, homeware and accessories with a modern Welsh twist.

Sian, her husband Mike, and three-and-a-half-year-old Ava have been living in a one room static caravan for two years while they wait for the house to be finished and baby number two to arrive in January. ‘The new bathroom is just amazing – especially after having had such a tiny shower for so long!’ Sian tells us. ‘I wanted it to be simple, timeless and practical, but also to have a designer edge.’

Large format white tiles meet a tactile slate floor and are finished with slick black brassware and accessories. ‘We kept things as simple as possible, with clean lines, and a monochrome palette – I was mindful of creating a space we could live with for a long time’ Sian explains.

The combination of longevity and effortless industrial style is what drew the judges to the space. ‘I love natural materials, and the slate floor is a wonderful contrast to the slick white walls,’ Sian says. ‘I paired it right back because I wanted it to last, but we pushed the boat out with the large shower head to make a modern statement and give it an industrial edge’

While the space looks beautiful, it’s based on the requirements of real life. ‘I chose each element to be as practical and easy to clean as possible,’ Sian explains ‘I kept referring back to what we needed as a family’. Thus, larger tiles mean less grouting, grout is grey for quick maintenance and surfaces are matt to show fewer small finger prints.

‘Pretty much everything came from UK Bathrooms which I hadn’t planned but just made sense – they guided me to good models in the price range I could go for, and because I bought so much, delivery was free,’ says Sian. ‘UK Bathrooms just made life more manageable, such as making sure I had the things that you don’t think about, like water traps and plugs. The bathroom includes luxury brands such as Crosswater and VitrA, and it was so easy getting them from one place.’

‘The bathroom is exactly what I was hoping for; clean lines, open space, and practicality; I take great pleasure in using it and will do for years to come’ says Sian, who won £500 worth of Love2Shop vouchers gifted by VitrA Bathrooms. ‘I’m absolutely thrilled to have won the UK Bathrooms Design Awards, and it’s been a massive help with finishing off our new home.’

We all need colour in our lives… ColourKast from BC Designs

We are excited to now supply beautiful bathroom products from premium brand BC Designs. BC Designs prides itself on quality, innovation and originality. Started in 1999 the company has become a well-respected bathroom design house that offers beautifully crafted products to all areas of the bathroom market. Their bath collections, including the Cian and Acrymite ranges, have been imitated, but never matched.
And now the British bath manufacturer has unveiled ColourKast, a collection of eight decors which will be available across all its Cian baths and basins. The colours span jewel shades, earthy tones and pastel hues. These include Gunmetal, Khaki Green, Mushroom, Powder Blue, Light Fawn, Industrial Grey, Satin Rose and Powder Grey.Cian is a solid surface that is seamless, durable and made from one material throughout. Each bath is floor mounted, but BC Designs is also developing a stand for selected models.
Design director at BC Designs Barrie Cutchie said ‘Colour in bathrooms is a huge trend right now, and we expect it to develop over the coming months. ColourKast will offer retailers and consumers choice with the eight different shades but combined with original and established bath shapes that retailers know sell well. Customers can either match or contrast their basin or each piece is striking enough to stand alone.”

So what are the key benefits of ColourKast that are exciting us here at UK Bathrooms:
*Most Cian baths can be ordered in ColourKast – and at the same price as white
*Choose from an exclusive range of colours
*It is a colour throughout material providing all the incredible benefits of solid surfacing
*Cian® Solid Surfacing’s superior process technology ensures a solid homogeneous, 100% non-porous surface
*All products are renewable and repairable due to the impermeable surface. Minor scratches and scuffs can be easily removed
*ColourKast baths are manufactured with a silk matt finish only – white versions are available in a polished finish
*Most of Cian® baths have a unique integrated waste overflow system built into the walls of its baths
*All products carry a 25-year warranty
*Cian® baths can be fitted on heated floors, unlike many models on the market
*Matching ColourKast wastes can be ordered to suit – as well as various plated finishes
