As we all try to be a bit more Eco conscious, the bathroom is a place where we can make changes and save on the amount of water that we use. On average 50% of the water used in a home is used in the bathroom. So it makes sense to see what can be done to save water in this area. There are behavioral changes that we can of course make, such as not leaving the tap running while brushing our teeth. But did you know you can incorporate certain design features into your new bathroom to make your bathroom more environmentally friendly? We'll take a look at 5 of them here now: Fill Your Bath Perfectly Every Time Have you ever left the bath running to come back to it, only for it to be overfilled, too hot or too cold to get into? Draining away...

The 1992 advert for Cadburys Flake must have had a lasting effect because ever since we've associated freestanding baths as being the ultimate in luxury. Even now 30 years later Bespoke Bathrooms is installing  Freestanding Bath tubs in lots of our clients homes. Do I have enough floor space? A freestanding bath can still be placed beside a wall, so even if you are limited with space don't rule it out. You can also do clever things with storage on the vertical wall space beside the bath. If you have a larger room then you can bring the bath away from the wall and make it more of a centerpiece. Doubling up If you can see yourself sharing your bath, or perhaps you have younger children that you plan to bath together, then consider a double ended bath. These will have the taps in the middle of the bath...

We've worked in a lot of bathrooms over the years and in doing so we've learnt all the things that should be included. Here is our quick guide to the top 10 things every bathroom should have: Mirror Bathrooms are for washing and grooming and it goes without saying that you need to be able to see yourself in order to do this! Wastebasket Flushing every bit of waste down the toilet in a bathroom is a no no. Both for environmental reasons and for practical reasons. Bulky waster can block waste pipes and lead to having to call out expensive drain unblockers. Natural Hand Soap Using a natural hand soap means you are putting the best quality products on your skin and avoiding things like palm oil which can have a negative environmental impact. 2 each: Bath towels, hand towels, washcloths There's nothing worse than stepping out of the shower or bath...

As we emerge from the Covid pandemic it seems that there are other challenges out there now. That's life really isn't it one set of challenges after another?! Even more so it seems when you are running a business. Due to Covid we have built up a backlog of work. We are steadily working through client jobs in order. One thing we don't do is compromise on quality. Our team produces the highest quality work and that does take time.

We are seeing a lot of volatility in terms of materials and sanitary ware pricing from week to week. So we are finding that for example if we were to give you a quote today, by the time we got...
