  • Bathroom cleaning mistakes we make and how to stop them

    Cleaning the bathroom is a chore that everyone dreads. Its hard work that nobody looks forward to but the results are amazing. Nothing beats the feeling of stepping into a gleaming bathroom. And the smell…can we just talk about the smell of a clean bathroom. Lush!

    However, when cleaning our bathrooms, we often make terrible mistakes. These mistakes can sometimes compromise the conditions of our beloved bathroom. Continue reading to find out the 5 biggest mistakes we make and the simple hacks that will stop you making them.

     

    Cleaning with bleach

     Cleaning with bleach

    With all the white china in a bathroom it seems logical to grab the bleach, right? We all use bleach in our bathroom and whilst it’s safe to use on your toilet bowl, it should be avoided elsewhere. Bleach is a very harmful chemical that will cause damage to anything chrome covered. So that tends to be taps, wastes, shower enclosure handles and trims, showers and flushes! There are a lot of things that shouldn’t have bleach used on them in your bathroom. When cleaning your bathroom, you should ensure that only a washing up liquid is used and hot water on everything besides your toilet bowl.

     

    Not washing your bathmat

    bathmat

    A bathroom mat should be there more as a practical feature rather than a stylish one. It is an essential to avoid slipping when you step out of the bath or shower. The nature of a bathmat therefore leaves you with a damp patch on your bathroom floor for a good portion of the day. Whilst damp your bathmat is a hive for bacteria development. Due to this its advised that your bathroom mat is washed weekly! For this reason, when you choose your mat bear this in mind. The fake animal skin one shown may look amazing but is really not a practical choice!

     

    Toothbrushes and toilets

    Toothbrush and toilet

    This is a mistake that you see day after day and wouldn’t even think it was a mistake. How close do you keep your toothbrush to your toilet? After reading the next part of this blog you may consider moving it. When you flush your toilet it releases millions of particles, some bacteria and others of faecal matter are exposed to your bathroom unless you lower the toilet lid. And let’s be honest, who closes the toilet lid to flush? I know I don’t! The solution to stopping your toothbrush being exposed is to keep it as far away from the loo as possible, ideally in a bathroom cabinet.

     

    Wet toilet brushes

     Toilet Brush

    A toilet brush is essential for cleaning a toilet. A squirt of bleach and a scrubbing with a brush is the best way to get around the toilet pan for a thorough cleaning. This cleaning method is totally fine, but what you may be doing wrong is storing your brush. Once cleaned you should leave your brush to dry before placing back into its holder. Putting this straight into the holder will leave you with a pool of water that will be full of bacteria and other particles! The solution to this cleaning mistake is simple…. just lift the lid of your toilet, place the brush over to pan to dry with the lid holding it in place.

     

    One cloth cleans all

    cleaning

    When your cleaning your bathroom it can be easy to run a bowl of hot soapy water and do the whole of the room with one cloth. After all, you’re cleaning everything, right? Wrong! By doing this you’re cross-contaminating bacteria’s. You wouldn’t want to sit in a bath knowing the cloth had just had a rinse after cleaning the toilet would you! Go for a few microfiber cloths in different colours so you know which colour cleans what.

     

    So how do you fair? Are you making any of these easy mistakes?

  • The 5 things you need for a family friendly bathroom

    A family friendly bathroom can be hard to achieve. After all, there are so many people to keep happy it’s hard to know where to begin. But if there are little ones around it’s important to make sure your bathroom is safe for them too.

     

    At Bathroom Supastore we’ve compiled the 5 thing we think are essential for a family friendly bathroom.

    1. Large Radiator

    Family Friendly radiator

    In a busy family bathroom its vital there are a consistent supply of warm and fluffy towels on hand. The best way to ensure this is the case in your home is to choose a radiator such as the Reina Deno which comes in a huge 1488 x 500 mm. The ladder style provides plenty of rungs for multiple towels all of the time.

     

    2. Soft Close Toilet Seat

    Family Friendly Soft close toilet

    A soft close toilet seat is a winner for everyone. No more arguments about whether the seat should be up or down as a simple tap and the seat gently close to the *ah-hem correct* position! This gentle closing will also avoid pinching little fingers. A style such as the Marlow has a sleek pan with no nooks for dust to gather. A bonus for parents who need have limited time to clean.

     

    3. Wipe Clean Flooring

    Family friendly wipe clean floor

    If you’ve got carpet in your bathroom, get rid! Carpet that stays damp is prone to bacteria build up and it’s also going stay damp in a busy family bathroom. The solution to making your bathroom flooring family friendly is to go for something wipe clean. Then if the children splash water out of the bath or shower you can simply wipe it up. Clever Click vinyl flooring is available in many wooden and stone flooring options and provide that wipe clean surface. Add a bathmat to provide a safe area for everyone stepping out of the bath or shower.

     

    4. Thermostatic Sliding Shower

    Famliy friendly thermostatic shower

    I’m sure we’ve all been in the shower and had someone turn on a tap elsewhere in the home!? It’s not a nice experience for the person in the shower facing either a boiling hot or ice cold stream of water. A thermostatic shower makes setting the perfect temperature easy whilst stopping any sudden temperature burst during your shower. Choosing a thermostatic shower with a sliding head as well as a fixed allows you to lower the head cleaning for little bodies too.

     

    5. Semi Pedestal Basin  Family friendly semi pedestal basin

    The basin is a bathroom essential. It is also the most use piece of sanitrywear in your bathroom, from washing hands to cleaning teeth multiple times a day. Often when little ones are using a basin a step or something to add a few inches to their height is needed. If you opt for a semi pedestal basin you have the flexibility over the height of the basin. You could therefore lower the basin whilst your children are little so they are able to reach the taps a little easier.

  • Bathroom Decor Trends For 2018

    The start of 2018 is well under way now and with it come predictions for the hottest bathroom décor trends of the year. The new shades and styles that will be huge over the next year are bold and different to those we’ve seen in past years. We’re confident that you’ll fall in love with a at least one of these and start planning how to get this in your own bathroom.

     

    Colour Accents

     

    Colour accent trends

    Now this isn’t a new idea, however it’s a trend set to make it big this year. It’s time to throw away caution to the wind and add a splash of bright, bold colour to your bathroom. Bathrooms lend their selves perfectly to that extra dash of bright colour, due to the natural tones of the sanirtywear.

    This trend will see a comeback of coloured baths and sanitrywear, but if you’re not brave enough to make such a big commitment don’t worry. You can easily add colour to your bathroom with accessories. Add in some towels, a rug or a piece of art in your chosen colour. Once you’ve warmed to the colour we’re confident you’ll be reaching for the paint to make more of a statement.

     

    Hotel Style Shower

     Large shower trend

    Showers were always seen as an addition rather than an essential in a bathroom. However, in recent years this tradition has changed. Many people opting to forget the tub and go for a more lavish shower, which is reflected in this trend prediction.

    Hotel style showers are far easier to achieve at home that you may think. Without a bath you'll create ample space for a large and luxurious walk in style shower that we’re used to seeing in boutique hotels. With incredibly discreet shower panels and slim line the Kudos Ultimate range is ideal for making a chic statement feature. Why not go full on hotel style and add his and hers shower heads?

     

    Sunken Baths

     Sunken bath trend

    If, however you do love a bath there is a hot new trend that you can adopt in your bathroom. Freestanding baths have been seen as focal point within the bathroom for many years. The new trend however is to incorporate the bath into a sunken area of the room. What is a sunken bath? A sunken bathtub is exactly what it sounds like. Leaving just the top exposed the bath will make the room feel more spacious and airy. A sunken bath helps creates a spa like feature of your bathroom. The addition of whirlpool jets, like the Trojan Elite 14 Jet whirlpool pictured will create a sanctuary area, perfect for long relaxing soaks.

     

    Indigo Blue

     

    Indigo colour trend

    Whilst the Pantone Ultra Violet is predicted to be a big hit this year, there is also another shade making waves in bathroom décor. The dark shade has a stunning inky blue tone colour scheme compliments simple furniture. Working well with both white and wood finishes. The richness can be overwhelming but using different textures, matt walls, glossy tiles for example adds depth to a bathroom.

    Indigo is reminiscent of the deepest parts of the sea, team with light oak and a hint of turquoise for a seaside feeling all year round.

     

    Matt Furniture

     

    Matt furniture trend

    There’s no doubting the popularity of high gloss furniture in the bathroom, with its easy wipe clean surfaces, but there’s a new style in town for 218. Matt furniture is going to be where it’s at!

    Whats great about his trend is you don’t have to buy new to achieve it. With many paint brands now stocking matt finishes you can up-cycle your current furniture very easily. The Tavistock Vitoria range is our stand out matt furniture and is available in dark grey or linen white.

  • Freestanding baths at sensible prices

    Edwardian and Victorian freestanding baths can add a touch of style to any bathroom. A number of our baths are also manufactured right here within Britain.

    So if a traditional old tub is right up your street then you have come to the right place.

    Whether you’re after a slipper style bath, or a bath with ball feet or just something that says quality, then you have come to the right place.

    Our freestanding baths can offer period designs or alternatively modern appearance baths. Most of our baths are made from modern acrylic materials which means that they retain the heat better than most other baths, they are also super easy to clean.

     Victorian Baths

    Victorian architecture can be found in most cities, towns and villages yet to create this look through reproduction pieces normally costs an arm and a leg.

    However, this is where Bathroom Supastore excels, we stock a range of bathroom items which capture the design of famous period designs and offer these at a fraction of the price of some other retailers.

    Plus the quality is never lacking at all. Take for example our Bentham single ended Victorian freestanding bath.

    This is a perfect example of Victorian styled baths but offered at low internet prices.

    We retail this particular model at just £470.00 which makes creating a Victorian themed bathroom very affordable.

    Modern freestanding baths

    For some a period themed freestanding bath will not suit the décor of their home, instead something much more modern is needed.

    A popular option is our Airton thin rim freestanding bath. This freestanding bath has a look that you may have already seen within many interior design magazines. That’s to say its shape offers a designer appearance but because of its depth it’s also very luxurious.

    Our Airton freestanding bath costs just £803.00 which offers a significant saving when you compare the style, shape and dimensions of this bath with other designer bath stockists.

     Victorian slipper baths

    Slipper baths have seen a huge surge in popularity once again. We stock such a bath called the Eldwick model, this bath has detailed legs and a raised portion that allows the occupant to enjoy a more luxurious deep bath.

    Our Eldwick freestanding bath can be offered at just £444.00 which is one of the most competitively priced slipper baths on the internet.

    Why choose Bathroom Supastore for your freestanding bath?

    The internet is bursting with retailers selling freestanding baths, however the quality can vary massively.

    Bathroom Supastore have carefully chosen our suppliers so that we don’t just compete on price but also durability and quality.

    This is why so much of our custom comes from trade bathroom installers. We also make sure that we bring you the latest designs and also high quality period styled bathrooms as well.

  • What are P shaped shower baths?

     What are the benefits of choosing a P shaped shower bath?

     

    Whether your bathrooms small in size, or you just fancy a less cluttered bathroom, the P-shaped bath may just offer you the perfect solution.

    For those who are wondering, what exactly is a P-shaped bath? Simply put it’s a shower area and a bath all in one. By having the bath slightly enlarged at one end, allows for the space to be used as a shower as well.

    This is great if you live within an apartment, or a property that has a small bathroom. P shaped baths are also commonly found within en-suite bathrooms as well.

    What are the benefits of having such a bath?

    There are a number of reasons why shower baths are so popular, the main reason is to save on space, the second is to save on plumbing costs.

    Because a shower bath uses the same waste water pipe for the shower and the bath, plus the pipework can all be directed towards one area of the bathroom, this can sometimes save people money on their plumbing costs.

    That’s because having to plumb in a shower enclosure, and then the bath separately normally costs more.

    What does it mean when the bath is described as reinforced?

    We’ve all experienced a bath, or a shower tray that has been less than sturdy, that’s where the slight give and flex of the materials can make the product feel cheap and poorly designed. We believe such baths and shower trays are a false economy.

    Reinforced baths are the total opposite, they are engineered for maximum strength. The materials used also have other benefits, for example some have thicker acrylics and have special heat retaining coatings.

    How much does a P shaped bath cost?

    We only stock baths from leading bath suppliers, however we still offer these baths at low prices.

    Take our Trojan Concert, it’s a compact P shaped shower bath, the bath measures 1675 x 800, this model is offered at a very low price.

    If you admire quality then this is the P-shaped bath for you, that’s because this bath is manufactured by Trojan right here in the U.K. The bath is made from quality materials, this means 100% of this bath is made from sanitary grade acrylic.

    How much does a designer P-shaped shower bath cost?

    We also stock the incredibly strong Trojan Concert reinforced P-shaped shower bath, this bath measures in at 1500 x 800.

    Why choose Bathroom Supastore?

    We bring the latest innovative and stylish bathroom products all of which are offered at rock bottom prices. We also offer high levels of customer service, for more information regarding any of our products why not call us today?

  • Struggling with which bath to choose?

     A guide to help you choose your new bath 

     

    Many people are straying away from selecting bathroom suites that include every single item for you. That’s to say many people are customising their bathrooms to such a high level today often individual items need to be chosen instead.

    This is all well and good, however when most people come to selecting a bath normally this is where many hit the stumbling blocks. Thankfully our bathroom obsessed team are here to help, we have picked out a number of baths that we hope provides you with some food for thought so that you have a light bulb moment in terms of which bath is right for you.

    As tough as old boots!

    Let’s face it, some baths just feel downright cheap, that’s to say there can be so much give in the bath it feels like a trampoline sometimes. Plus, as any good bathroom retailer will tell you, if there’s movement in the bath during its use then this causes wear, which can mean leaks from the waste connections.

    So it’s common sense that most people want a tough and sturdy bath, one that will last a long time.

    We know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking a solidly constructed bath, one that can take everything life can chuck at it, well this surely will cost an arm and a leg, well you would be wrong.

    Our Misos reinforced single ended bath is inexpensive, plus it’s so tough and durable you will be glad you come to Bathroom Supastore. Did we mention that this particular bath comes with a 30 year guarantee? So if you want a durable bath this model is likely to be right up your street.
