If you are wondering 'How to do a Bathroom Makeover' then we have you covered here at Bespoke Bathrooms. We've been serving up bathroom makeovers for well over 10 years at this stage (learn more about our history here) The main trigger for doing a bathroom makeover is typically someone who has bought a second hand home with a tired bathroom (or two) in it and they want to bring it into the 21st century. We have come across more than our fair share of tired Avacado Bathroom suites - and take great pleasre in replacing them! The first step is to take some room measurements and then send them over to us. From this we can determine what space you have to work with and what the options are. We will be able to give you a ball park estimate. The next step is then for us to come and visit...

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. What this means is that typically there is a delay of 4-6 months between initial conversations with clients and getting a completed bathroom. This is now starting to present other challenges. 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...

Over recent months we have renovated quite a lot of bathrooms in apartments and smaller properties. The remit here is often the same, to maximise the usable space in the bathroom or wet room. This makes a lot of sense as you don't want to feel hemmed in. One of the best ways we have found to do this is by installing a space saving sliding door. This is a door that rather than opening into the room, taking up valuable space, instead runs parallel with the wall. A space saving sliding door can be mounted on the outside of the room. This means it takes no space at all from the bathroom. Here are some examples of recent space saving sliding doors that we have installed: In this example the door was mounted inside of the bathroom, the wall was adjusted to accommodate the sliding mechanism. For this...

We seem to be receiving an ever increasing amount of emails from people looking for help with leaking wet rooms. Recently we also heard from someone who we had quoted for installing a wet room a few years ago who decided to go with a cheaper competitors quote. It is something that pains us to see as there are so many rogue traders out there, promising wet rooms at bargain prices that simply aren't fit for purpose. A lot of them seem to get away with it because even a poorly fitted wet room can typically stay watertight for 1 to 2 years, long enough for the home owner to think they got a bargain, and also long enough for the rogue trader to be long gone. What a lot of people don't realise is that tile and grout that are used to finish most bathrooms is...

A feature wall can be a great way of creating a wow factor in a bathroom or wet room. Even if space is tight a feature wall can be a way to make the most of your space. We recently completed this project of a en-suite for our client’s in Woodstown and this one certainly has the wow factor with that stunning feature wall to give this bathroom that extra pop of colour. Every inch of this room was maximised from removing the hot-press which took up half of the new walk in shower area. We did this by installing a combi boiler in the utility room freeing up the space to create a new big walk in shower. We also installed a sliding door once more to maximise the use of the room. All of the sanitary ware was supplied by Davies Bathrooms and all the tiles...

So you might be wondering what is the best way t0 clean bathroom tiles and grout? First of all the best way to cure dirty tile and grout is to protect it so that you don't get the issue in the first place. Bathroom tile and grout stains have a few common causes, starting with mould or mildew. These organic stains thrive in the damp corners of a bathroom shower and the porous, concrete-based grouts that are commonly found in between bathroom tiles. Now lets assume its too late for that and you already have dirty tiles and grout.In order to clean the grout and tiles in your bathroom the the first step is to determine what materials you are dealing with. What are your tiles and grout made from? There isn't a one size fits all with cleaning materials so doing your homework with...
