PlumbNation Plumbing Supplies Bathroom Guide
A bathroom can consist of any number of wonderfully innovative items, many of which requiring some manner of professional installation. Bathroom prices will vary from the unbelievably cheap to the fabulously expensive, catered to the very needs of every bathroom budget. Therefore it is essential to carefully plan your approach before making your first purchase. Planning for a new Bathroom needn’t be unnecessarily complicated however, by reading through our comprehensive guide and consulting your professional installation team you will be enjoying your new bathroom in no time at all.
Things you will need to do / consider before creating a new bathroom or revamping an older bathroom:
Measure your bathroom – you will need to know the exact dimensions of your bathroom, including the height, width and length.
Decide what bathroom pieces you will need – for example do you need a bath, a bath and a shower, a walk in shower, a bidet, etc.? Your choices will normally be influenced by the amount of space you have and your budget. There are many bathroom suites to choose from and make a great place to begin.
Check that your boiler and cylinder will suit your new bathroom water usage requirements – a shower with a high flow rate and a small supply of water will cause your time in the shower to be very short. Taps are also limited by the flow rate of your mains water supply. If you are ever unsure you should always consult your professional installation team or the relevant manufacturers.
Calculate the dimensions of your desired bathroom pieces to see if they will fit your bathroom – bathrooms vary in size but it is crucial to know what will fit and more importantly what will not fit. Fortunately, as small bathrooms are common there are many ingenious, space-saving bathroom suite designs to help out in such circumstances. If all else fails you could always simply install a shower and no bath.
Plan the lighting of your bathroom carefully – a perfectly lit bathroom will change your life for the better so be sure to fill your bathroom with either natural or artificial light to set the right ambiance. Any electrical work in your bathroom must be carried out by a registered electrician.
Choose your bathroom flooring material – there are lots of options here, choose from Granite, Limestone, Marble, Slate, Ceramic, Vinyl and more. Each option will inevitably come with its own advantages and disadvantages and some will require specialist installations.
Decide upon the décor and theme of your bathroom – once all of the technicalities have been agreed upon you can start having fun with the bathroom’s aesthetics. A good starting point is to decide upon a theme. For example a bright, modern contemporary style to awaken and inspire your senses the moment you enter the room may be you’re your ideal bathroom, or perhaps a calm, traditional rustic bathroom is all you need to start your day. The possibilities for your new bathroom are endless, so don’t rush into it, ponder your perfect bathroom and get it right the first time.
Read installation instructions provided by the manufacturer – it may seem obvious but many of us are guilty of ripping open the packaging and acting before thinking. Not everything for the bathroom will require a professional installation however if you are ever in doubt be sure to contact the manufacturer directly.
Use registered professionals for important bathroom installations – perhaps the most important point of all. You don’t want to spend good money on a top end bathroom suite only to have the installation botched by a couple of cowboys. Once your perfect bathroom has been installed correctly it will last for generations if cared for properly, meaning money well spent.
A Bathroom Suite will typically consist of any of the following: a bath, a basin, a toilet, a shower, taps, accessories etc. A Bathroom Suite will generally share complementary design styles so that each piece of the Bathroom Suite will match its neighbouring bathroom pieces. Many of our PlumbNation Plumbing Supplies Bathroom Suites are beautiful in both contemporary design and practical functionality. If you thought it impossible to have both ideals in one fine bathroom piece then you are about to be very pleasantly surprised.
A nice hot bath is all you need sometimes to wash away the troubles of the day and sink under a tide of relaxation. The bath is often considered to be the cornerstone of a bathroom suite. Whether you’re looking for a traditional bath with standard features or the very latest in contemporary Whirlpool Bath design you’ll find it all here in our PlumbNation Plumbing Supplies Bathroom collection. A Whirlpool Bath has powerful jets of warm water to sooth and relieve tired muscles and withdraw the aches and pains of a hard day’s effort. For that rustic approach why not opt for a freestanding Bath, no buttons or gadgets, simply bathing in its purest and most glorious form.
Choose from an Acrylic Bath, Cast Iron Bath, Steel Bath, Corner Bath, Freestanding Bath, Whirlpool Bath, Bath for Two People, Jacuzzi Bath and more. Our collection of stunning Bath Panels will compliment your Bath and bathroom perfectly for a complete bathroom theme. Our Bath manufacturers include the world-renowned bathroom names Ideal Standard and Roca.
Bath installation guide tips: First, measure the bath, piping and bath waste areas and mark them out. Now attach the feet assembly to the bath, then fit the taps, waste and overflow before positioning the bath. Once everything is in place, use a spirit level to determine whether or not the bath is level. Create a waterproof seal between the bath and the adjacent walls where required.
Every Bathroom will be in need of inspired Bathroom Accessory essentials. Your Bathroom Accessories will need to coordinate perfectly with the Bath, Basin, Toilet, Shower, etc. to create the desired Bathroom décor. A Chrome Plated Toilet Roll Holder for example will coordinate perfectly with your Chrome Plated Basin Taps and Bath Mixer Taps, enhancing your Bathroom’s symmetry and style.
Bring your bathroom to life by choosing and coordinating awesome styles and finishes. There are a number of appropriate accessory design styles, textures and finishes available for all types of Bathroom décor, your choices include: Metal (Polished Chrome, Brushed Chrome, Polished Brass, Antique Brass, Brushed / Polished Stainless Steel, Zinc, Brushed Nickel, Wrought Iron), Glass (Frosted Glass, Clear Glass) Plastic, Wood (Beach, Pine, Oak), Porcelain and more.

Heated Towel Rail
A Heated Towel Rail or Towel Warmer will bring an additional touch of class and a sufficient supply of heat to your Bathroom. Towel Rails come in two varieties, the first are Wet System Towel Rails, which are connected to the central heating system and must be installed by a professional installation team. The second variety is the Electric Towel Rail, which can be installed at any property with minimal effort, but are considered to be more costly to run over a period of time. We at PlumbNation Plumbing Supplies offer a wide range of Towel Rails from Myson, Stelrad, Abacus Direct and Delonghi, ranging from simple Ladder Towel Rails to more unique and contemporary Designer Towel Rails. Don’t forget, a Heated Towel Rail will not only create warmth for your bathroom but also style.

Installed correctly a Waterproof TV will be safely isolated from any splashes of water meaning you can take your time in the Bathroom and enjoy your favourite shows in complete peace. Waterproof TVs come in a range of sizes meaning there are more affordable options available for when you simply must have one. The PlumbNation Plumbing Supplies Waterproof TV collection comes from the leading manufacturers including TechVision and Abacus Direct.
Concealed Cistern and Flush Plate
A Concealed Cistern is used in combination with a back to wall standing pan installation. Concealed cistern installations are carried out to hide the pipework and cistern to create a flawlessly concealed Bathroom design. As the cistern is concealed it is not feasible for the Cistern to be operated via a lever as it is now concealed, hence the name, therefore a Push Button flushing system is required. This will allow the Cistern to be flushed externally using a Push Button Wall Plate; a Push button is commonly referred to as a Flush Plate, which is typically available with either a single flush or dual flush action. We at PlumbNation Plumbing Supplies offer an impressive collection from the world’s market leading manufacturers of sanitary systems of Concealed Cisterns and Flush Plates including Grohe, Abacus Direct and more.
Toilet Frame / Basin Frame / Bidet Frame
Toilet Frames, Basin Frames and Bidet Frames are specially designed to allow a quick and easy Bathroom installation for a wall hung Toilet, Basin or Bidet. A Toilet Frame / Basin Frame / Bidet Frame is installed within a wall cavity of the Bathroom, where the basin is then held in place via hooks and any pipe work is concealed, much like a Concealed Cistern.
A Wet Room offers ultimate luxury, simply walk in and shower. A wet room allows water to fall directly onto the Bathroom floor to simply drain away via a trapped shower drain that is normally located in the centre of the floor. A Wet Room can be installed onto a concrete floor or even a timber sub floor. The PlumbNation Plumbing Supplies Bathroom collection has everything you need to create your own Wet Room with Wet Room Glass Screens, Wet Room Water Proofing, Wet Room Shower Trays, Wet Room Kits and Wet Room Drainage Kits.
Trap / Waste / Overflow
A Trap will capture a small amount of water that creates a seal to prevent unsanitary gas from the sewage below the household from coming up through the pipes of the plumbing. All plumbing fixtures, including Kitchen Sinks, Baths, and Toilets, must have either an internal Trap or an external Trap.
Bath Wastes and Basin Wastes are typically available in two variations. The first is a Standard Waste, which is basically a plug that is connected to the end of chain and the chain is also connected to either the Basin or the Bath. The second is a Pop Up Waste, which is normally controlled by a lever and rod system that when pulled up will release waste water with ease and is generally considered to be more pleasant solution to the Standard Waste (Pop Up Waste systems vary). Many Monobloc Basin Taps include the very popular Pop Up Waste in the price. Here you will find the following Wastes: Basin Waste, Shower Waste, Pop Up Waste, Click Waste, Slotted Waste, Unslotted Waste.
An Overflow can prevent water from spilling over the edge of a Basin or Bath onto the Bathroom floor. Many of our Bathroom products come with an Overflow included as standard but if you need to buy an Overflow separately then you will find them here.
