With a wide range of traditional style ceramics, including high level chain pull toilets, why not add some stately elegance to your bathroom with the new Regency Suite.
Have you ever considered a more traditional style bathroom? These days it's not all about contemporary designs. With popular TV series such as Downton Abbey and Call the Midwife getting our creative juices flowing, we're really starting to warm to a wide range of period style possibilities. In fact, there are now plenty of options available to help you recreate those classic designs of yesteryear in your own home.
Create a classic interior with a monochrome colour scheme. We take a closer look at the individual pieces that make up our traditional Regency Bathroom Suite:
Back to Basics
For a mix of traditional style combined with contemporary function, the fabulous Regency Back to Wall Toilet is ideal. Featuring a range of toilet seat options, including white MDF, solid oak or walnut effect, you can choose to buy the back to wall toilet with or without unit.
If you're looking for something altogether simpler, the Close Coupled Toilet including Seat is a great option, especially where you might be on a tight budget.

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.

The humble toilet seat is an underrated necessity in the bathroom. A faithful servant for many, it has always been admired for its practicalities rather than beauty of design.
However, as the design of a bathroom becomes more important to homeowners, each element has undergone a measurable amount of scrutiny over the years – the toilet seat is no exception. From designs bordering on the bizarre to the varying materials used to provide optimum comfort, there is now a plethora of choice for the modern bathroom designer.
So if you're planning on adding the crowning glory to your "throne", read on, as we explain the things you'll need to consider when picking the right toilet seat for you and your bathroom.
Which material "wood" you prefer?
The main options are wood or plastic. With a plastic seat there is the opportunity to pick from an array of different designs including luxury soft close seats. The main issue with plastic, however, is that it can be cold to the touch, especially during the winter, but even throughout the summer.
The main types of plastic used for toilet seats are Thermoplastic and Thermoset. Without going into too much detail, Thermoplastics can be heated and remoulded time and time again, Thermoset plastics can only be heated and moulded once

When you think of a wall hung toilet, you probably imagine something used solely in hotels, restaurants or even bars. However, with more design choices than ever, the traditional close coupled toilet now doesn't have to be the only option when it comes to your own bathroom.
Designs such as the back to wall toilet are becoming more popular, so maybe it's worth considering taking a fresh look at your options? These days adding a wall hung toilet to your bathroom is not as difficult as you think, with a whole kit costing as little as £300!
We take a look at just 5 reasons why a wall hung toilet could be a great investment:
1. Easier to clean
A major bonus, especially if you are one of those people (like me) who absolutely hate cleaning the bathroom. With no floor attachment, floors can be mopped or vacuumed without those awkward little nooks and crannies you often get with a traditional style toilet.
2. Space saver
With no external cistern, the projection of your toilet is significantly reduced, opening up your bathroom and giving you more space to play with. This is especially handy in smaller bathrooms.
3. Hidden plumbing
Not to sound negative, but the fact the cistern and all the plumbing is hidden behind a wall is one of the reasons why people often shy away from a wall hung toilet
