At Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms we LOVE showing off our amazing staff who play a pivotal role in the daily running as well as growth of the company. This month we’re shining the ‘Spotlight on’ Jane, one of our absolutely fabulous Customer Service Advisors.
Hi Jane, tell us a bit about yourself
I joined the Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms Customer Service team in November 2018. For years, I worked more in the sales side of things for various companies, however I fancied a change, and the Customer Service team was calling my name. I’m a very easy going person, I like taking care of myself, and absolutely love keeping my house immaculate – I love my Dyson more than I love my kids!
What’s your role at Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms?
On a day-to-day basis, I deal with customer enquiries. This includes placing orders over the phone or over the counter in our dedicated Trade & Customer Collection point where the Customer Service team are situated. I also deal with any customer issues, which may arise, trying my best to resolve in the fastest and most efficient way possible.
What do you like most about working for Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms?
My favourite part of my job is ultimately making all our customers happy, especially if they have had a disappointing experience. I love turning a negative experience into a happy Wholesale Domestic experience.
What’s your favourite Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms product and why?
That’s an easy question – it’s got to be the complete Parade Collection. The style of it is ultra-modern, curved and super sleek, and it would look beautiful in my bathroom. I plan to get it soon! I believe it’s the best range on the market, and not just amongst our products. It’s also fantastic value for money!
Do you have any fun facts about yourself?
Not really a fun fact; however during lockdown I discovered a new skill which I never knew I had! I learned how to bake, and since being back in the office, I love to bring in some home baking goodies for everyone, and they are so happy when I do, it’s literally gone in minutes…especially my empire biscuits!
Jane is an amazing employee as well as fantastic person, bringing a bit of pizzazz into the office daily. We love her work ethic, her great personality and generous cake giving.
We hope you enjoyed getting to know Jane and finding out some insight into her role here at Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms. Stay tuned for our next Staff Spotlight.

Look at this luxurious bathroom oasis featuring our Florence Freestanding Bath designed by @jojo.mumma.xx. Oozing greenery, this bathroom feels more like a retreat instead of a bathroom you’d find in a standard home. Greenery in your home is not only beautiful but also good for your health. Plants release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, therefore proven to purify the air, allowing you to breathe in cleaner air. So next time you’re looking to add to your bathroom space, look at natural plants.
However, back to the Florence. If you are looking at introducing a freestanding bath into your bathroom design, decide on your style. Are you looking to incorporate vintage-chic, or ultra-modern? The Florence Freestanding Bath is popular because of its modern style, curved edges and centred tap, as well as 4 varying lengths, perfect for any bathroom size.
If you’ve got the space, when designing your dream bathroom, opt for a separate shower and bath, it’s practical and if done correctly can be super trendy. Check out @renovationstyleand_error – this bathroom is absolute goals! However, our favourite element has to be the Black Glass Framed Shower Screen. Not only is it a practical element in a bathroom design, but it’s also a stunning feature piece, acting as a striking talking point for any visitors.
Our Black Framed Shower Screens are available in 6 widths, from 700mm to 1950mm. We also offer a side panel helping you mix and match to find the perfect shape for your bathroom.
The Napoli Gloss White Floor Standing Vanity is one of our most popular products from our renowned Napoli Collection. You can either select a built-in basin or opt for a counter-top basin, as well as drawers or cupboard doors. The @plumb.squad have opted for the built-in basin with 2-drawer option, this gives adequate storage for even the busiest of family bathrooms. The @plumb.squad have paired the unit with the Sirus Close Coupled Toiletwith soft closed toilet seat. A standard toilet with a bit of edge.
Fall into fall with up to 60% off RRP on all our bathroom products. At Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms, we offer everything you need to build your bathroom of dreams.

Stimulating, dramatic & inspiring.
Your bathroom is a functional and practical space; however, that does not mean it has to be dull. Embrace the space, and bring your own personality into the mix. Black framed shower screens, designed a bit like crittall windows, are an ultra-modern option, which are proving extremely popular with our customers. This glass shower screen is available in various sizes to fit any bathroom space or design, and from only £139.95.
Black features are growing in popularity, amongst all areas of interior design, and this doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. We recommend pairing the Black Glass Shower Screen with a Matte Black Shower such as the Square Thermostatic Valve with Slide Rail Kit, not only does it match in colour but also in shape creating a dynamic effect.
And what about tiles? Well the marble look has been around for years, yet always a winner especially in a bathroom environment. Within this set we chose to incorporate White Smoke, a 60 x 60cm tile suitable for both floors and walls, available from £49.95/m2. With its gorgeous gloss finish, it is a stunning addition to any bathroom design.
When finishing off your bathroom, don’t forget to add in easy accessories such as fejka foliage and scented candles, creating your own oasis.
Calming, luxurious & fresh.
A Freestanding Bath was previously so far out of reach that only the wealthy were lucky enough to incorporate into their bathroom design, but how times have changed. We have a range of freestanding baths from only £349.90, varying in shape, style and size to suit modern or vintage enthusiasts. The bath pictured is the Skipton, with its stunning roll top design and centred taps, a bath made in freestanding heaven. You can even choose which style of feet you would prefer, the wooden wenge is pictured, however you can also opt fortraditional vintage or modernchrome.
Heading into the colder seasons, (and all year round really), it’s important to consider your heating options. You can incorporate either aradiatoror heated towel railinto your bathroom depending on your space, style and budget. Pictured is the Boone Double Panel Grey Radiator, a sleek radiator designed in a way to suit other rooms of the home, available at only £159.95. Go on; create a dramatic look in your living space, kitchen or bedroom, why not?
For those looking for a simplistic yet modern bathroom style, opt to purchase a complete Bathroom Suite. The James Straight Bathroom Suite is one of our most popular complete suites, available at only £309.90. It has everything you need; a toilet, a basin & pedestal, storage and even a bath. If this style isn’t for you, we have over 35 complete suites available with varying features and price points to choose from.
When building your dream bathroom we always recommend purchasing matching basin & bath taps, creating cohesion throughout the space. The tap options really are endless, varying in price, shape & style. Pictured below are the Flow Taps, with their angular shape and contemporary look, coming in at only £59.95 & £99.95.
Our Bathrooms are the most important room of the home, and we’ve found that during this time with people staying at home more often, the same bathroom can become monotonous to look at. However, don’t stress, there are several ways to spruce up your bathroom without fully renovating, saving you a FORTUNE.
The cheapest and quickest fix to any bathroom makeover is the addition of potted plants, whether artificial or real. An artificial trending fan favourite is the Fejka, with celebs like Stacey Solomon showing us how she incorporates the Fejka into her home. For your bathroom, we suggest placing several artificial hanging styles from a bathroom shelf, bringing a feeling of sanctuary and relaxation.
Or actually bring the outdoors in with real houseplants. Not only are they super chic but also good for our health in many ways. Plants have the power to reduce our stress levels, but can also improve the air quality – certainly creating your own true oasis.
2. Adding a New Mirror
Mirrors are an excellent addition to your bathroom with the power to elongate space and light. Firstly, when choosing your mirror consider the size of the wall you want to cover, and then consider the shape you would prefer. A circular favourite of ours is the Typhon, at 600mm, or a larger option is the Annona, at 800mm. Both come with LED lights, demister and touch screen technology.
However, if you want to treat yourself to a fancier mirror, go for a Bluetooth option. Smart technology has infiltrated our entire life, so why not embrace it in your bathroom as well. The Dionysus Bluetooth Mirroris our go-to, at 1000 x 800mm it’s large enough to fit an entire wall. Sync it up to your device and get that shower hits playlist on.
3. Soft Closing Toilet Seat
A must-have bathroom element is the soft closing toilet seat.When first introduced to the market, they were a bit pricier, however nowadays they are extremely affordable as well as easy to install. The main benefit, of a soft closing toilet seat, is that they are less ‘clattery’ but are also excellent for stopping little fingers getting trapped.
4. Update Storage Solutions
When updating your bathroom consider your current storage options, and how you can make improvements. The obvious options would be units; introducing aside cabinet, or drawer unit, but there are also smaller alternatives. Addinga wall-hung towel shelf will keep the space open, but allow for a fair amount of storage. Robe hooks are also an excellent option for hanging dressing gowns or even towels.
So there you have it, your top 4 must-have additions to overhaul your bathroom on a budget.
