New Bathroom in Wickford

This new bathroom in Wickford is a real combination of our design and supply service and our customer getting the exact bathroom they wanted.  It also gives an opportunity for us to show you the difference a Geberit concealed wall hung cistern makes.  Firstly though the gorgeous Pelipal marble washbasin and vanity unit beneath as well as the LED Mirror Cabinet make real statement when you first enter the room.

Pelipal is a german brand that we partner with because of the gorgeous curved units they offer and Mr & Mrs A have chosen a great combination of sink and unit.

The shower enclosure is by Svedberg with a Crosswater shower.

The wall mounted wc is from our Duravit Starck 3 range.  Wall mounted toilets have long been the norm on the continent, the sleek lines look good and are also so easy to keep clean too.

Banishing all those dust collecting pipes and fittings to the mounting frame as well as the plumbing makes for clean lines and clever design creates easy maintenance too.  All the moving parts in the Geberit Duofix System, the valves and all their controls, are grouped behind the easily removable flush plate which means that any maintenance can be carried out quickly and easily.  The systems is completely self contained and concealed within the wall with the flush plate the only thing visible.  Standard systems are 12cm wide but if space really is an issue then there is also an 8cm option.  As we are at the fitting stage in our new showrooms we have the opportunity to show you how they fit in to a small space.

Space saving is just one of the benefits – wall-hung toilets are also quieter than floor based toilets, perfect for ensuites and families with young children.  The height you place the toilet can be varied too which can be a benefit for those with mobility issues.  They are water saving too and very strong and safe, they are becoming the norm with new bathrooms and we think that is a great thing.

That all got a bit technical didn’t it?  Well to remedy that we have a gorgeous pet pic to share.  This is Benson a Golden Retriever and the family pet.  He is not allowed upstairs so a pic in the new bathroom was a no, that doesn’t stop him from being very much loved and spoilt, so he had his picture taken in the garden instead.
