Embarking upon a bathroom renovation? We know the drill.
First off you'll start thinking about the size of your room - what can you actually fit in it? You'll then begin to make all sorts of decisions about the type of suite you want - will it be traditional or contemporary in style? Do you want a bath, shower or both? What kind of furniture will you add?
All very, very important considerations, but sometimes it's all too easy to get lost in the bigger picture. Before you finish thinking about it, make sure you pay some attention to your Bathroom Accessories.
Why it's important to Accessorise!
A careful choice of complementary and matching accessories can really enhance the overall look and style of your bathroom. All too often, the design is finalised and installed and then you find yourself struggling to find those perfect finishing touches. At the end of the day, you don't want to end up with a bathroom that is anything less than what you dreamed of. And you certainly don't want to end up with a mish-mash of badly matching, ill-suited accessories in an array of different colours, finishes and materials.
Here at Victoria Plumb we've just launched 4 brand new ranges of Bathroom Accessories, providing you with all the finishing touches you'll need and all delivered direct to you!

Bathroom lighting can often very conventional with one solitary bulb creating a bright but somewhat harsh illumination that lacks warmth and imagination. However. . . . the one thing that lighting in your bathroom doesn’t have to be is boring!
It’s amazing just how much difference the right type of light can make. So here are five unique options for you to try:
As the bathroom is more commonly used as a luxury room of relaxation, a chandelier would be a great choice. It doesn’t have to be a huge draping chandelier; they come in all different shapes and sizes

There are now more accessories than ever to keep the modern bathroom fully functioning and limit any negatives in getting yourself clean this winter.
Gone are the days where the bathroom was a place of necessity and hindrance, only used for the sole purpose of personal hygiene – small, cramped rooms that resembled something practical and functional, and needed to take up as little space in the house as possible.
A Place for Pampering
Today, the bathroom is seen as a place for pampering, relaxation and an escape from the stresses many people face in daily life. Larger rooms are sacrificed to create the ultimate bathroom space as more and more hours are spent in this new, tranquil arena.
Since the focus on a luxury bathroom has become more prevalent we have seen an increase in original and creative accessories to complement such a stylish room.
In the Deep Midwinter
During the winter the bathroom would once have been considered a cold and unwelcoming place but thanks to these improvements opinions have waivered.
One of the biggest, must-have, accessories for the winter is the heated towel rail. Since the turn of the century demand for towel rails has seen an almost exponential growth, and it is easy to see why.
The repeated scenario of having to leave the shower and dry in the cold, with a coarse towel is a daily grind for the majority of the British public. With a heated towel rail it keeps the towel soft and warm to provide instant satisfaction for the, suddenly cold, user
