Time to ‘Blow our own Trumpet’!

These days, we are all quick enough to moan and complain about bad, or shoddy service received; but it’s not often that people actually take the time out to put pen to paper and write a letter of praise. Well, this is exactly what one of our Virtual Worlds users did, earlier this month!

Mr Munir, the Director of Leigh Plumbing Merchants in Lancashire, wrote a charming letter of thanks and it truly gladdened our hearts to read it. So we thought why not, let’s get that old trumpet out! 

…and ‘BIG UP’ to Kiran in our Technical Support Team – great stuff!

Mr M Munir of Leigh Plumbing Merchants wrote…

‘I am writing to express my appreciation and extend my gratitude to you and your team. I am extremely impressed at the level of customer service I received from your representitive Kiran last week, who helped me in resetting Virtual Worlds on my new PC after losing data. Kiran is a credit to your team and it was wonderful to have such a knowledgeable and helpful agent to guide me through the process. I hope this fantastic level of service continues and once again, many thanks’

Featured Designer: The Bathroom Designer

After a short Summer break, our ‘Featured Designer’ spot is back – with a simply stunning contemporary bathroom from Jacqueline Hunt at The Bathroom Designer in Wimbledon.

Jacqueline’s clients had undertaken an extensive redevelopment of their property in Esher, so used the opportunity to commission a new master en suite bathroom. The room had been untouched for about 15 years and although functional, was dark in certain areas and lacked any enticement to linger in a hot bath.

So the brief was simple: create a warm and luxurious bathroom, which felt both elegant and contemporary! With the use of Virtual Worlds 3D room planning software, Jacqueline was able to transform those ideas into impressive images and provide the ultimate design experience for her clients. Enabling them to visualise their new bathroom, make choices with ease and ensure their satisfaction with the end result.

As part of the brief, a desire had been expressed for more useable storage which would be integral to the overall contemporary design. This was achieved by designing bespoke units in a fabulous walnut veneer and running the length of one side of the room. Being stylishly fitted behind the WC and beneath the ‘his and hers’ basins, then complimented beautifully by colour backed glass worktops and splash backs; chosen for their vibrancy and durability – each piece was specifically made to measure.

The stunning glass feature worked as a ‘highlight’ in the space, contrasting nicely against the neutral tone tiles on both the floors and walls which help to create a bright and spacious feel in the room.

By using Virtual Worlds software for the design process, this enabled easily implemented changes to the original design. So it was agreed to include some recessed shelving, for display next to the bath and some glass clad recesses within the shower.

The clients had also requested a larger shower, so Jacqueline designed a beautiful walk-in wet room shower, spanning the whole width of the room. The existing lowered ceiling area, worked extremely well with the location of the new ceiling shower head.

To help open up the floor space even further, a striking freestanding bath Nexion by Villeroy & Boch was selected, as the base panel feature gives the illusion of floating.

Finally, a great deal of attention was given to the mood lighting – with individual LED’s being placed around the bath and shower base, to be independently controlled by dimmer from the ceiling lights. Essential task lights over the basins, add useful light to the wall mirror and a certain enhancement to those stunning worktops. And that final extra touch of luxury and indulgence: underfloor heating and a towel rail connected to the hot water system, for warm dry towels all year round!
