Covid-19 update – We’re now Open!

Following recent government guidelines, we are delighted to announce the re-opening of our Showroom as of Monday 22nd June 2020 – initially on an appointment only basis. For the safety of our staff & customers, we are asking all clients to contact us for an initial discussion regarding all enquiries at which point we can arrange a subsequent showroom visit. Please also review our social media as we’ve recently made lots of updates there –

Covid-19 Company status update

We’re not quite able to provide an exact date at this time for re-opening but we believe we can comfortably suggest the light at the end of tunnel appears brighter as each day passes. We’ve been busy trying to use the time wisely of recent, updates to showroom displays and our website amongst other projects have all been a worthy use of the time available. Our free design offer continues so if you’ve any ideas and want us to explore them just be in touch and we’ll happily help. Otherwise stay safe and stand-by for re-opening news.

Free Design offer – During Lock-down

Given our inability to carry out home surveys and during these times, we’ve taken lots of enquiries from clients looking to use their time wisely and start planning their bathroom renovation. For a limited time only, subject to t&c’s we’ll be providing free design advice and CAD images of how we could transform your existing bathroom to your dream bathroom. Simply contact us with a brief outline and we’ll be in touch therein. See our social media for examples of our CAD capabilities.

Covid-19 Update

Following our temporary closure at the end of March, we’re hopeful easing of the restrictions will take place during the month of May. All clients, past present and future can be assured it’ll be business as normal for Bathtime – we’re raring to go! Please contact us via our info@address for any urgent enquiries otherwise stand-by for news updates.

Impact of Brexit – Our experience so far

It’s becoming the talking point of the industry. Only last week were we reading of a long-established English kitchen firm forced to close the doors. Worryingly so was their reputation, like-minded small family business structure and efforts over a sustained period to avoid same. Sadly – the showroom door just wasn’t opening and there is only so much one can do. So what about us?

Collapse of nationwide chain Better Bathrooms – an independent’s perspective

Much has been said regarding the recent closure of online and nationwide chain Better Bathrooms amongst industry commentators. Their Glasgow branch was of course our nearest one although it’s fair to say their online presence like most larger online models provide us our biggest challenge. It’s never nice to see any business close and of course the loss of jobs is regrettable but does this tell us anything about where the industry and consumers are heading? The consensus of commentators is that any business ‘caught in the middle’ will have a challenging task. If you’re after lowest price and little to no personal touch, the larger online companies seem to have it all covered. But what if price isn’t your only consideration? Enter the independents. Quite simply we don’t look to compete with online companies at all – we recognise price is a big consideration, but we make it clear with our clients it’s not the only consideration. Our clients aspire for more than the lowest price – yes they generally want the best price but for a service and product that generally isn’t available online / through nationwide chains . In our opinion consumers are now beginning to understand the industry as well as us – if price isn’t the only consideration perhaps online / nationwide stores might not be the best option.

Installers Required – We’re recruiting!

To match the demand of our ever-growing client base we require additions to our workforce. Whether you’re looking for a plumbing apprenticeship which specialises in bathroom installation or a new challenge if you’re already employed – we would be happy to hear from you! Please contact us via email –

Getting Social

More and more are our clients requesting interaction via social media, it is without doubt the ‘way-ahead’ with the ease of apps such as facebook, instagram, youtube, pinterest etc .
