Is your bathroom a sanctuary? Does your cloakroom wow guests? Create a bespoke look to enhance your décor and lifestyle from the extensive ranges of bathroom furniture and fittings at Preston Plumbing Supplies.
“A well-planned bathroom adds style and comfort to your home,” says manager Paul Ross, “and could increase its value.”
As Paul explains, the design details and sophisticated colour palette which made an impact in kitchens and living rooms are now taking centre stage in our bathrooms.
“Basins and baths come in both traditional styling and modern lines for example,” he says. “Cabinets and storage are on trend in muted creams, greys and blues. And while chrome is still a popular choice for taps and handles, so are the copper, brass and black finishes which are so fashionable throughout the home.”
The firm’s Manchester Road showroom is renowned for its inspiring walk-round room sets. A new display for autumn is the Valarte range from Vitra, with Shaker-style units and mirror cabinets. All the furniture is available in white, grey or ivory matt finishes.
“It is practical and stylish,” says Paul. “For example, the mirror cabinets offer great storage and have a useful illuminated shelf but are also attractive furniture in their own right.”
Preston Plumbing Supplies displays ranges for all sizes of bathrooms, ensuites and cloakrooms. Paul and the team will advise customers on the layout suitable for their room dimensions and can source installers.
Small spaces are never an issue says Paul. “The new Kingsbury Cloakroom unit from HiB, for example, offers compact depth in both its ceramic washbasin and soft-close storage,” he says. “And customers can make a style statement thanks to the choice of paint finishes in Henley Blue, Dove Grey and Classic White.”
Preston Plumbing Supplies offers free delivery within a 50-mile radius. Budgets get a further boost this month when the showroom hosts the Big Bathroom Sale (7th September – 27th October) from the bathroom brands company.
“There are discounts of up to 50 per cent on popular ranges such as traditional designs from Burlington and modern looks from Britton,” says Paul. “Clearwater, known for its free-standing baths and basins, is also included.”
Today’s trend for open-plan family living has increased the appeal of calming and easy-to-maintain bathrooms. “We can help design a bathroom to suit your décor, your lifestyle, and your budget.” says Paul. “A beautiful bathroom is an essential home comfort.”
