Bathroom necessities.. from WC frames to radiator valves!

Villeroy & Boch Finion

A new bathroom can take ages to plan and get exactly right from the layout to the choice of products. Once we have a layout that works aesthetically and practically ie position of toilet reliant on soil pipe location, then we tend to focus on the ‘main’ products we’d like to include such as the bath, shower, vanity unit, WC and brassware. These products will be the ones that set the style of our bathroom, whether contemporary or traditional.

What can be equally as important, but often neglected, are the products that are necessary for function, and can sometimes add to the finished look. For example a new towel radiator will ideally need matching radiator valves. If your brassware finish is the on trend brushed brass, gold, copper or black then your basin waste, bath filler, bath waste can be supplied to match. And, if you have an exposed bottle trap then this too can be in a finish to match.






You may opt for a sleek, minimal look with a wall hung WC – UK Bathrooms has a great choice of these but again don’t forget that a wall hung WC needs a concealed cistern with a flush plate, the cistern can be hidden in a wall or purpose built boxing. We’d always recommend a reputable, quality brand for both frame and flush plate – these products should be durable and built to last.

Stuart Turner Showermate 1.8 bar Twin Shower Pump

A major problem confronting anyone wishing to install a shower in their home, either over a bath or in a separate cubicle, is ensuring sufficient water pressure to operate the shower satisfactorily. Most people expect a shower to deliver a strong invigorating spray rather than just a trickle of water. All too often it is found that although water pressure is adequate at bath and basin taps, once a shower is fitted, with the spray head higher than other outlets, the pressure at the spray head is totally inadequate.

There is a way round this that will not only give an adequate shower, but it will be powerful and invigorating too. A shower pump is the answer and UK Bathrooms have a range from the leading manufacturers. Stuart Turner is a leader in the field and their range will suit most installations. The Showermate twin pump is designed to boost the incoming hot and cold water supply to an individual shower, bath / shower mixer, or mixer tap.
