Hello, as we have been in the bathroom industry for over 100 years between us,
we use this area to pass on advice on problems and new products which might help those problems.
We don`t get political but sometimes.....a picture says a thousand words
This is a picture from our customers Ted and Margarets bathroom.
The Inox range of brushed stainless steel taps are our best selling range.
But we never see the end results (although we often get told on the phone).
So it fantastic to be getting images of a finished Inox bathroom,
and what a stunner it is!! Thank you Ted and Margaret for the picture.
Never drink above a toilet with a glass.
Because if you do this can happen.
Now toilets are very tough on the outside but this part on the inside is not.
It is hard to find a bathroom cabinet that does not stick out too much,
But still has all the bells and whistles on it like USB charging points etc.
We think HIB have cracked it here with the Exos range, as it looks really classy.
With Subtle lighting and many features but it does not seem enormous as many cabinets do.
Of course what you lose in depth reflects on what you can have inside it.
So the rubber bath duck may have to go elsewhere.
Well there are 2 kinds of stainless steel finish for Graff
But we think the SN finish is the nearest.
To show that we have put a JTP Inox brushed stainless steel tap
next to the Graff colour swatches in our showroom.
as the Inox tap is made from stainless steel and not plated.
we thought this showed the best comparison of colours.
But of course the final choice is up to you the customers.
We have got the Graff swatch at our wandsworth showroom if you want to look at it.
This really must be one of the strangist looking products i have seen in the bathroom industry.
Evidently it from the new Cromwell range from Saneux and is supposed to be handset holder/wall outlet.
But i can`t help thinking it looks like it has come out of Robot wars and that in any minut Craig Charles is
going to be warning us of the evil intentions of Sir killalot or whatever the meanest house robots were called?
Is the Brushed Brass Crosswater Arena plate the same colour as the MPRO range?
Well it actually is the same colour, although the picture on the Crosswater website is much darker.
So we put an Arena flush plate up against some MPRO brushed brass taps so you can see the colour match.
Toilet and basin all in one.......good idea?
We have this combo in our showroom in Wandsworth, South West London.
While we can appreciate that this is a big space saving option,
we are not a lover of the quality of the tap or the waste.
Also you are kinda stuck with the tap that it comes with as the space underneath is so limited.
The waste is terrible but i guess it will do a job.
This is kinda of like a mascerator in that if you have to have one then there is no choice.
But i doubt we will sell many as we don`t really like selling anything we are not confident of.
Brushed Black Chrome - Stupidest name for a colour in the bathroom industry?
Well we think it is!
Crosswater have come up with this name for this range of gunmetal grey taps.
IIt seem all the manufacturers are out doing themselves to come up with silly names for this colour.
But to us it is gunmetal grey, but what do you think?#
While you can`t buy these in one pack in the UK, you can buy them as seperates in the link above.
They offer a much more stylish look to a disabled toilet than the standard white and blue plastic ones do.
But of course they are much more expensive, they are also of a higher quality as Brushed stainless steel
is much more hygenic than the standard plastic ones. They are made in Spain by sonia and are thouraghly tested
to take a holding weight of 418kg. the range includes the swing bar below along with straight and angled grab bars.
As with all grab bars we would recommend that you get the person using them to see where their hands naturally go when using the bathroom,
and then place the grab bars where that is so it is easier and safer for them when they are using the safety bars.
