Shower trays in stock for quick delivery

Having just bought a shower tray myself I was delighted to find a great choice on  Choice of either rectangular shower trays, quadrant shower trays, square shower trays and all available in a range of materials.

I could also choose whether I wanted low profile 25mm tray too. Which is great for those wanting a more streamlined ‘walk-in’ look.

Most impressive was the huge range of sizes, for instance the Crosswater Simpsons 25mm Stone Resin Shower Tray with Linear Waste  is available in 14 sizes!

Prices too are fantastic at the moment – with up to 60% of  UK Bathrooms Essentials range of shower trays which are in stock and delivered within 1 – 2 days.

This was the deciding factor for me. I needed to get my hands on a shower tray fast.  The UK Bathrooms Essentials Rectangular Shower Tray is available in 9 sizes and the 800 mm x 1200 mm was the size for my space, in stock and only £132.30 inc VAT.

This shower tray is 40mm in height and is made from a single cast piece of quality Pearlstone resin material. It’s solid build gives a high quality feel underfoot and it’s also quick and easy to install. A high-flow chrome waste was included, bonus!


Bathroom trends for 2022

As winter approaches and Christmas draws nearer, it’s a good time to look at the exciting bathroom trends we can look forward to in 2022.

Green will be seen

Green will be seen in our 2022 bathrooms. From pastels to sage green, emerald green to forest green – it’s a great colour to ensure your space looks fresh and encourages your positive wellbeing. Try green tiling to your walls and floor. Or a bold wallpaper with green hues to bring your bathroom completely up to date.

Farrow & Ball’s Breakfast Room Green

Farrow and Ball recently unveiled their top 5 colours for 2022. Breakfast Room Green, Babouche, School House White, Stone Blue and Incarnadine being named. These wonderful hues offer a great mix of form, function and comfort. Breakfast Room Green is most definitely the cheeriest of all the F & B greens to date.  Use on all four walls in your bathroom to make the space look bigger.



The trend for biophilic bathrooms is going to continue in 2022. Bathrooms are busy places. We start and end each day in the room but there is a growing need for bathrooms to be a safe haven, a place to relax and reduce stress levels.

A biophilic bathroom uses plants to introduce nature. Not only do they help to de-stress they also help to purify the air.  It’s not all about plants though, look to introduce natural materials into your new bathroom design. Wood, stone, cork and bamboo can all be used on floors and furniture. Or just add wooden accessories to add a pure, simple and natural aesthetic.

Wooden Floor Tiles

Beautiful natural wooden floors as a finish for the bathroom is definitely a growing trend.  Wood effect tiles are practical yet bring the instant warmth and coziness of a wooden floor. Watch out for our new tile ranges – COMING SOON to UK Bathrooms!

Black Bathroom

We’ve seen a huge trend for black in our bathrooms over the last few years and it will dominate in 2022. Use black furniture or accessories or make a real statement with a freestanding black bath. Add black tiles to your shower wall to create a stunning contrast.

Leading traditional bathroom brands such as Burlington and Imperial have recently launched their black bathroom collections which includes bathroom basins, wc’s and furniture. These pair exceptionally well with gold finished brassware and accessories – if you’re aiming for an opulent, luxurious style.


In 2022 we will definitely see a trend for earthy natural colours and finishes. Stick to one hue and create that nature-inspired zone where you and your loved ones can relax and de-stress.

Beautiful basins from UK Bathrooms

I recently discovered that choosing a new basin for your bathroom isn’t easy. There are a plethora of styles and designs. There are also many different sizes, so I went back to basics and thought it might help to explain how to choose the right basin for your home.

Types of basins

First thing to consider was what type of basin I needed, there are corner basins, wall hung basins, countertop basins, vanity units with basins inset, semi recessed basins, cloakroom basins, basins that sit on washstands, basins that need a pedestal or semi pedestal and inset basins.

Check your size

I’d inherited a vanity unit in matt black and needed a basin that literally sat on top of the entire unit. The most difficult part was then finding a basin that would fit, it had to sit on top of the unit but not be too deep.  I also needed a basin that had smooth flat edges for toiletries to sit on.

Number of tap holes

Finally, I needed just one tap hole as I already had a black mixer tap, Crosswater MPRO Matt Black Basin Tap

Modern or traditional

Style and design were just as important as I wanted my finished bathroom to be modern.



Great choice

I worked through all of the options on and  using the filters, I was quickly left with a handful that were the right size, shape and style.  Comparing brands and prices I opted for the VitrA Sento Large Basin, 78cm wide for just £166.60 inc VAT. I simply had to confirm the size and whether or not I wanted to purchase the matching waste.

I did fall in love with Villeroy & Boch’s Artis, the Oval Washbowl is simply stunning and they also offer a Colour on Demand Bespoke Service. Choose from 12 colours inspired by the seasons with two additional neutral colours in black-grey also available. The soft pink with a brushed brass tap is what I have my eye on for my next project! Just don’t tell my husband!

Vanity Unit FAQS

Before we get into our best selling Vanity Units. Here are a couple of frequently asked questions to aid you in your search for the perfect vanity.

What are the different types of Vanity Units?

There are many different types, sizes and styles of bathroom vanity units to suit all variations in needs. Because there is such a wide variety, it is easier to break down into style categories.

For a modern bathroom, you should look at wall-hung and countertop vanity units. For a traditional look, you should consider washstands, traditional and floor standing vanity units. Whereas if you are looking for a vanity unit to fit into a small bathroom, you should consider a cloakroom vanity unit.

What materials are Vanity Units made from?

Vanity units for bathrooms are made of wood. Depending on the design and size, the sort of wood used will differ. The great majority of bathroom vanity units are made of MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard). Or, MFC (Melamine Faced Chipboard).

Vanity units are usually water-resistant due to the dampness in the bathroom (but not waterproof unless specified).

6 easy ways to have a spa day at home (bathroom edition)

Creating a personal oasis of serenity at home can feel like a chore. But thanks to UK Bathrooms, your dream spa day is just an extravagant bubble bath away. By taking inspiration from your favourite luxury spas. You can make a bathroom space that soothes your mind, body, and soul.

When planning your new spa bathroom design you can consider everything to even the smallest details. Such as including natural elements to create a tranquil feel. To things such as walk-in showers and water flow. As well as soft minimalist earthy colour palettes. Room saving bathroom storage, roomy bathtubs, idyllic accessories and rich finishes. Your journey to creating that spa day feeling at home has never been easier.

1. Apply a soft minimalistic colour palette.

Choosing the right colour palette for your bathroom is very important. As it can have an immense effect on the emotions the space creates. We would recommend using earthy tones or a white backdrop. As simplicity is the key to a serene bathroom setting. Alternatively, a simple dark contrast will act well. Especially with wood styled bathroom furniture and bold bathroom finishes.

This is a modern open planned bathroom with a mirror and hanging vanity unit. There is also a indie styled towel rack. There is a minimalistic feel of the room, which reminds the viewer of a elegant spa day.

2. Utilize bathroom storage to keep your room clutter-free.

In terms of bathroom furniture that could help tie all of your design choices together. We suggest looking at VitrA’s Integra Range, especially the Vanity Unit and Mirror. These items channel a timeless elegant moment. With the perfect balance of instant warmth and relaxing coolness.

This is a full sized bathroom, with toilet, bidet and shower enclosure. There is also a sink, mirror, tall cabinet and hanging mirror. All the items in this room belong to VItrA's Integra range. The colour scheme is monochromatic greys. This room is reminiscent of a spa day experience.

3. Create a spa-like walk-in shower

If you have ever been to a spa, you know that one of the best features is the open, relaxing, walk-in showers. They are paramount in the spa day experience.  Immerse yourself in the absolute brilliance of the rainfall shower from hansgrohe.

This PowderRain shower has the option of matching taps and accessories. Which can create a perfectly streamlined experience. This shower comes in a brushed gold finish. This goes very well against a dark contrasting wall.

A spa-like shower isn’t just about the showerhead, it’s similarly to the enclosure. Our recommendation for shower enclosures is to look at Crosswaters Gallery & Optix 10 ranges.

They come in stunning Brushed Brass, Matt Black, Brushed Stainless Steel and Chrome finishes. These can be used as beautiful accents against your calm muted or dark contrasting bathroom. You can also pair these with Crosswater’s MPRO range, see point five for more information.

For more shower room ideas, please click here for some inspiration.

This is a walk-in shower / wetroom with a double shower, the shower is a  brushed brass finish, against a pink styled marble backdrop. This would be a great focal point to show off on your spa day.

4. Go for a spacious, luxurious bath

For some, a shower won’t cut it. Creating a bathroom whose focal point is a beautiful, elegant freestanding bath can be a necessity. One way to create a fabulous spa day experience is by using the Copper Boat Double Ended Bath from BC Designs. It is crafted in a hand-polished finish that really helps lift this bath above others. The Copper baths curves and beautiful lines can really add a lot of character, while still committing to a calming environment.

Alternatively, the Clearwater Formoso Petite Clearstone Freestanding Bath is simplistic. Yet, a stunning bath that has the depth to really sink into.

This is an elegant example of a copper freestanding bath, it has beautiful curves and a hand polish which just adds a certain level of opulence. Perfect for spa day.


5. Use our spa day-inspired accessories

One of the easiest, and probably most cost-effective ways to create that spa-day experience at home is to match your accessories. These will help make all the difference in your new bathroom spa.

As suggested before, the Crosswater MPRO range can be paired with different finishes. We have everything from towel rings to toilet roll holders, to wall-mounted mirrors. Nothing says style, simplicity, and serenity more than a matching streamlined bathroom.

This is a matching bundle of Crosswater Matt White Accessories around a toilet. There is a white toilet brush, toilet roll harder and flush plates. Nothing says spa day like a matching set of accessories!

6. Profit from our finishing touches top tips

Finally, a very underrated but very important step to creating a beautiful spa aesthetic is the finishing touches. These can take the form of toothbrush holders, soap dispensers and many more. As well as diffusers, soaps and lotions. One of our brands H2k Skincare Harrogate, offers harmonious soaps and lotions. Which offer calming and rejuvenating properties for your mind and body.
