With the average UK bathroom getting smaller, planning out a bathroom is becoming a more difficult task, particularly if you want both a shower enclosure and a bath included. Designers and manufacturers of bathroom equipment are always looking for new and innovative ways to get round this issue of space, or more accurately, the lack of it. There is a wide selection of space saving solutions on the market and with showering this is no exception.
A key trend is for more gadgets in the bathroom, this has been encouraged by the introduction of items such as flat screen televisions, which can be enjoyed whilst showering or bathing. This kind of technology has now seen the addition of more high-tech bathroom products. Remote operated digital valves are growing in popularity, as is integrated water delivery, where the water delivery is incorporated into the enclosure. The valve can be incorporated into the bracing of the enclosure and this is a contemporary way to turn the practical bracing into a striking design feature. Alternatively it can be bolted through the glass panel, allowing the valve to be operated from inside and outside of the enclosure. It brings a modern high-tech look to the bathroom.
Yesterday was a fantastic day for Roman, we were graced with a visit from HRH The Earl of Wessex KG KCVO. He came along to help us celebrate our 25th anniversary in style. The visit was originally scheduled for the 2nd December, but due to the freak snow we had around that time, it was called off at the last minute. Thankfully this time everything went to plan and His Royal Highness arrived promptly at 2.55pm.
The bathroom has now moved from being a functional room, to become a place to relax and unwind in – a spa-like sanctuary. In today’s hectic modern lifestyle we turn to the bathroom as an escape. This has seen bathroom products evolve into design led pieces that allow the shower enclosure to become a focal point of the house, a place to show off to visitors.
