Circular Bathroom Mirror with Hidden Storage Jenny from Svedbergs

Read entire post: Circular Bathroom Mirror with Hidden Storage Jenny from Svedbergs

What a clever idea this Jenny Mirror cabinet is from Svedbergs in Sweden

It has the neatness of a round mirror but places to store items so your bathroom looks uncluttered

Svedbergs Jenny Circular Mirror Cabinet in Matt White 3320

Metal Mirror cabinet with storage space and fold out door

Door folds out on a splinter bar (whatever that is? sounds painful)

Of course being Svedbergs the quailty is never in doubt but getting it to you quickly might be,

as most stock comes from Sweden to a UK distributor and then to us.

But ther is no doubting the design and syle of this white or black mirror cabinet

Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail Bathroom Accessories

A bit random this one but there are some new accessories coming out from Bathroom Origins this summer.

As soon as i saw this range it just made me think of Sean Connery in Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail.

I can`t wait to see what they are priced at? 

I think everyone who has ever done a medevil reinactment will want a set or perhaps they just use real goblets?

Black MPRO taps in a bathroom we have supplied

Read entire post: Black MPRO taps in a bathroom we have supplied

Sometimes you really don`t know what a product is like until you have seen it in a real bathroom.

that is espicially the case with new coloured taps such as the MPRO matt black range from Crosswater.

But as you can see from below, these taps look quite striking and they really do stand out and make chrome seem quite boring.

Although we are not convinced about the tiles chosen to go with this black shower valve set.

Black Bathroom Accessories in Stock in the UK 2018

Read entire post: Black Bathroom Accessories in Stock in the UK 2018

Are there any Black Bathroom Accessories in Stock in the UK 2018

Everyone seems to have sold out of them and waiting for stock like the Crosswater MPRO

The only range which seems to be in UK stock (is the best looking as far as i am concerned)

and it is the Sonia S6 Black range which we have on display in our Wandsworth, London Showroom

The S6 range is made in Spain by Sonia (not the 80`s podgy singing Sonia)

I suppose it is a lot quicker to re stock from Spain rather than China :)

Black Bathroom Accessories range in stock in the UK

Black Bathroom Accessories range in stock in the UK

There seems to be a lot of people selling branded black bathroom accessories, but nearly no one has gothem in physical stock.

Partly because the major brands like Crosswater underestimated the demand for black toilet brushes and toilet roll holders etc,

and we were swamped by orders when they came into stock.

The only major brand with UK stock is the Spanish brand sonia (click on the blue title above to see this range).

We have this range on display in our South London Showroom in Wandsworth.

Where do i measure what projection for my bathroom basin tap?

Read entire post: Where do i measure what projection for my bathroom basin tap?

Where do i measure what projection i need for my bathroom basin tap?

Getting the right size basin tap is not as easy as you may think.

We always reckon that the spout should not come more than halfway into the lower bowl section of your basin.

To make sure you do not go over this mark measure the distance between the center of tap hole to the niddle of the bowl section of your basin.

This is what tap manufaturers call the basin mixers projection.

So simply look for one that is less than that distance but easily clears the rim of your basin.

Other general points to take into account is the pressure through the taps.

 

Too little and the water will drip out (check your pressure at home against the tap you are buying)

A normal Combi boiler combined with mains cold pressure will give you over 1 bar pressure normally.

 

Too much pressure and the water will spill out over everyones trousers (leading to men staying longer trying to dry off and look like they have not peed themselves)

If it is too much pressure ask your plumber to turn down the flow of water reaching the taps which will reduce the splash effect.
