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!
New Bathroom Accessory Ranges
Along with our existing Cubik, Phaze and Matrix Ranges, the new Solar Bathroom Accessories Range combines chic, contemporary styling, with everyday functionality. With an array of wall mounted accessory options, you can keep the style flowing throughout your bathroom.

With those long, light days of summer fading into autumn, and evenings becoming darker earlier, the spotlight now falls on the lighting in our homes.
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

For luxury you can afford, we proudly introduce to you the Chime Range of shower riser rail kits, exclusive to Victoria Plumb.
The key feature of this innovative range is the option to switch between an overhead and handheld shower. You can enjoy an invigorating and refreshing drench beneath the overhead shower and then, with the turn of a knob, change to the handheld shower for more focused cleansing. This can be especially useful for hair washing.
The overhead showers are also easily height and angle adjustable. They are especially suited to those with busy lifestyles who require flexibility, without compromising on style.
Clever Storage, Simple Installation
Another fantastic feature of this shower riser kit range is the integrated storage shelf, providing plenty of space for your showering essentials. This eliminates the need for any further drilling into your tiling to add a further shelf or rack - perfect for smaller bathrooms or loft conversions, where storage is at a premium.
Installation is simple as all valve parts are external to the wall and easy clean silicone nozzles means you spend less time maintaining the look and performance of your shower.
The final and most important feature is the incredibly low price

In the fast paced environment of the modern world a quick shower is becoming a staple of everyday life and a way to let off some steam after a busy day!
For many people the choice of shower is the most important element in the bathroom and with the range of choices available to the consumer it can be one of the most difficult.
To help with this difficult decision below are some of the most important considerations when purchasing a shower:
There are a multitude of sizes to select when picking a shower. The size and layout of the bathroom needs to be carefully considered. For example, if you want to upgrade to a power shower then you'll need to allow more room for the increase in water pressure.
If you're looking to install a shower tray, enclosures or shower bath, all the measurements need to be carefully considered beforehand. By drawing up a blueprint it can give a clear indication of how everything will fit into the bathroom.
Extra Tip: Why not use SketchUp 3D Design Software?
There is a mixture of style options to choose from when it comes to showers. If you are having a complete overhaul then the design of the shower enclosure is a treasure chest of ideas; from the walk-in style to a sliding door enclosure
