Deciding you want to revamp your bathroom space is one thing, but knowing how to make it happen can be a daunting prospect. 

Heading to a specialist showroom, examining the different designs as well as the various basins, baths and other products on the market is a great way to simplify the process. Metamorphosis, a bathroom and kitchen retailer in Hailsham, has everything that you need to create a fantastic plan.  

We spoke to Ian Garratt, director at Metamorphosis, about the benefits of trusting experts with the design and installation of your bathroom.  

Q: What are the main considerations when planning a new bathroom scheme?

A: One of the first things we suggest to clients is that they have an overview of the colour, style and finishes they want to use. The second is to have a realistic aspiration of what will fit within the room. Standard-sized bathrooms can’t always accommodate products such as walk-in showers, free-standing baths and double basins.  

Maximising functionality whilst achieving the desired style is one of our most important jobs as designers, and we focus our initial designs on these two aspects. Using their expertise, our staff can recommend bespoke designs to suit the client’s specific needs and even offer innovative ideas that clients may not have considered. 

Q: What design services can you provide? 

A: We design, supply and install bathrooms, overseeing the whole process from planning the new layout, to supplying all of the necessary goods and fitting them. Our involvement ranges from a complete overhaul to only supplying products, depending on the needs of the client.  

What makes our services effective is our knowledge of the products on the market, and how they will suit our respective clients. For example, Geberit provides a wide variety of items such as Duofix frames and wall-hung toilets, which are light and compact. This particular wall-hung style is fantastic for making the most of limited space.

Another is the level of expertise within the bathroom sphere, and our connections to manufacturers. Clients can rely on us to deliver and install the required products on time and to a high standard. We do much of the leg work so that they can focus much more on creating a bathroom they love.
