Whether it is in the kitchen sink, the bath tub or that brand new stylish basin unit that you had installed, having a blocked plug hole is inconvenient and unpleasant.
It is probably the most common problem to occur in modern plumbing systems, as general the materials used and the designs incorporated minimise most other faults. However, a blocked plug can occur for many different reasons which is why they can happen annoyingly frequently.
Of course when it does happen it isn't usually a reflection on your cleanliness or maintenance any more than it is on the design of your fittings. The causes are usually simple and straightforward and can mostly be solved with a little application and few DIY skills.
When you do get a blocked drainage system of any kind it is important to tackle it swiftly as it can, in some rare cases, reflect a more serious underlying problem.
So what are some of the most common causes of blockages?
1. Foreign Objects
By far the most common cause of a blocked plug hole is because something has become stuck somewhere in the system. Although we don't realise it, a lot of material such as hair and soap in bathrooms, and fats and food waste in the kitchen, end up going down the plug hole.
Sometimes for various reasons this can accumulate further down the pipes and ultimately build up over time to cause a blockage which is only noticed when a slowing of draining water becomes an actual pool that refuses to budge

Without wanting to go into too much detail (or any detail for that matter) we all spend a significant portion of our life on the toilet. While this may not seem like big news there is one hurdle which we must all overcome – the choice of toilet seat.
Style and Comfort
There are two main considerations when choosing a toilet seat. The first is style and the second is comfort. The seat has to work well with the style of the room. It has to fit, in a design sense, and work aesthetically.
Go for an oak toilet seat in a modern minimalist bathroom and it will look out of place. The reverse is also true. A minimalist seat in a country style bathroom will look odd so you need to try and match the style of your seat to the rest of the room.
Bold or Subtle?
The toilet seat can also either be a design statement or it can be something that simply nestles with the rest of the features

Joan Collins recently stated that the key to a successful marriage was having separate bathrooms. This may be all well and good for wealthy Divas like Joan, but how can the rest of us, who simply don’t have the space or cash to splash on separate bathrooms, ensure we can share our bathrooms harmoniously?
When you move in with a loved one, it’s only natural for you to want to put your own stamp on a place, but also consider the other person’s tastes too. You may have managed to achieve this in the living room and bedroom, but the bathroom is a different case entirely.
This is a space that families usually have to share. Remember the arguments between siblings over the amount of time taken in the bathroom before school? It’s often a different story for couples without any children. After all, it’s just the two of you, so instead the bathroom becomes a place to relax - a retreat away from the stress of daily life. However, it does also have to be practical for the morning routine.
If one partner is messy, leaving toiletries, hair products and (God-forbid!) hair all over the place, it can cause real friction. So if you don’t want the bathroom to mark the end of a happy relationship, here are some design tips to help create a space that matches your lifestyle together.
If the two of you find yourselves tripping over each other in the morning as one’s shaving while the other tries to brush their teeth, adding a second basin is a real possibility

Although a bath may be the centre focal point for many bathrooms, the basin is used far more regularly and as such, is an important part of any choice of suite. In fact, the wide range of basin styles, their supporting structure and the taps that go with them, means you can mix and match to make your bathroom a uniquely personalised design.
Traditional styles based on Victorian originals are still immensely popular but modern, contemporary designs offer a varied choice when it comes to both stylistic decisions and functional design. It is certainly the contemporary basin and mixer tap combinations that are the most exciting elements when designing a modern bathroom, so what should you be looking for?
Victoria Plumb has a wide range of top-end designs that offer high quality materials and workmanship while being extremely affordable. Choosing a basin design that sits on a counter top, can allow for a wide range of flexibility.
Whereas a traditional pedestal style basin can suit period homes and more traditional suites, those looking for a more modern and practical solution can pick and choose between different solutions; from counter tops that feature semi recessed basins through to glass or marble structures with a choice of basin styles on top.
The style of tap you choose doesn't simply reflect an overall design choice, as it can be a standout feature that brings its own unique slant to a suite – although it must still fulfil a vital function.
A mixer tap should provide hot and cold water in exactly the proportions you want with an easy-to-use mechanism. That's why all our taps at Victoria Plumb are manufactured to the highest specifications, utilising the latest ceramic disc technology.
There are as many styles of contemporary basin taps as there are basins themselves, and the chance to mix and match means that you can come up with your own unique combinations
