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.

 

 

3D Design Service Meet Our Design Consultant

Spotlight on: Lisa Watson, Design Consultant at UK Bathrooms

This month we’re chatting to Lisa Watson, Design Consultant, 3D Design Services at UK Bathrooms. Lisa lives in the North Yorkshire countryside with her children, dogs, cats and horses. Any spare time she has is spent drawing, painting and horse riding.

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.

Londoners spend most time in the bathroom every day

Our latest study shows just how much time the average Brit spends in the bathroom each day, and the results will astound you. On average, Londoners spend the most time in the bathroom, a staggering 3 hours and 12 minutes each day.

A total of 2,231 UK residents over the age of 18 were quizzed about how they entertained themselves whilst in the bathroom every day. Participants were asked, ‘How do you keep yourself entertained within the bathroom?’ 59% said that they kept themselves entertained by using their mobile phone when in the bathroom.

brushing teeth

There respondents were additionally asked how they used their mobile phones, to which 76% admitted to talking to friend and family while in the bathroom, 37% played games on their mobile, 31% surfed the internet and 20% texted friends.

All of the participants were then asked to state roughly how long they spent in the bathroom each day, this included going to the toilet, taking a bath/shower and doing their hair and makeup; the results are shown below:

  1. London (3 hours, 12 minutes)
  2. Scotland (3 hours, 5 minutes)
  3. South West (3 hours, 1 minute)
  4. West Midlands (2 hours, 42 minutes)
  5. Wales (2 hours, 40 minutes)
  6. South East (2 hours, 33 minutes)
  7. North West (2 hours, 30 minutes)
  8. Northern Ireland (2 hours, 17 minutes)
  9. Yorkshire and Humber (1 hour, 59 minutes)
  10. East Midlands (1 hour, 48 minutes)
  11. East of England (1 hour, 36 minutes)
  12. North East (1 hour and 11 minutes)

According to our data, 38% of participants admitted to spending at least half their time in the bathroom on their mobile phone, with 31% claiming that they regularly waste time in the bathroom.

using mobile on toilet

Our director Peter Gregg talked about the survey saying:

“It seems the days of reading a newspaper, magazine or book are long gone! These activities didn’t make it in to the popular list of things to do when keeping yourself entertained in the bathroom. We are truly living in the digital age, even when it comes to our bathroom habits! It’s all good and well to keep yourself occupied whilst sat on the toilet or relaxing in the bath, but it can be a huge waste of the day – particularly when so many Britons admit that over half of their time in the bathroom is spent on their phones. Perhaps the fact that many respondents confessed to stalling to purposely waste time there suggests that we need to slow down our pace of life a little, so we aren’t in such need of an escape!”
