Top tips

When you’re planning your bathroom, here are some top tips from us:

1. Check whether it will work: not everything will
Unless you are confident, do not purchase any goods for the bathroom until you’ve run them past a professional. Not everything you like will necessarily fit and re-handling charges can be very expensive.


2. Water (usually) has to run downhill
Unless you are happy to have a waste water pump, which can be noisy and unsightly, water must run down hill. Consider where your waste pipes need to exit the room to assist with the layout of the sanitary ware. Though we do an excellent job… we cannot change the laws of physics!

3. Check if you have high or low pressure
Many modern taps now require high water pressure to operate. If you have a combination boiler or mains fed hot and cold services, you are likely to have high pressure. If your bathroom is fed from a tank in the loft, it is likely your pressure is low. A pump can solve this, but discuss the pros and cons first.

4. Think about bathroom furniture
Though not cheap, gives a room often needed storage space to hide all of those products. It also hides dust and cobweb gathering pipes! Not to mention easy cleaning around the toilet.

5. Consider stone vs ceramic tiles
Natural stone, marble and travertine etc looks fantastic. Do remember it costs more to work with and by its nature is imperfect. It requires maintenance too. If you want a tile that doesn’t vary in colour and texture, buy ceramic.
