The Bathroom Market

I read an article recently that stated that the bathroom market has risen in 24% over the last four years and that this growth is expected to continue - which is good news for those of us in the bathroom sector.

Another interesting statistic that jumped out at me was that refurbishment accountes for over 60% of sales with balance being made up by new build. This is also an encouraging situation as the bathroom cladding that we sell is ideal for use in refurbishment - its main benefit being that it can be installed over existing wall coverings such as ceramic wall tiles without the need to remove them first.

Caldding is also suitable for use in new build where walls will not need plastering prior to its installation, saving time and money in the process. We have had several forward thinking property developers purchase our cladding as they know their clients will love the visual impact of the product while increasing their bottom line at the same time.
