A new online bathroom shop
Sida Supplies are a recently launched online bathroom shop, selling a wide range of quality bathroom products. They stock a good range of both modern and traditional designs. Sida Supplies also have some brilliant monthly offers, products that have been on offer include; Modello Arc Single Ended Bath, Carino Mono Basin Mixer, Modular Unit & Basin and the Carino 360 Pillar Bath Filler.
A great aspect of this new business that I think is brilliant is that Sida Supplies do not only sell you the bathroom products, but also offer a range of experienced advice, tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your bathroom.
This new online shop seems to have a bright future in the bathrooms industry, they offer quality products at competitive prices and seem to be living up to their aim that is to ‘deliver total customer satisfaction through innovative design, a guarantee of quality and value for money, together with a commitment to outstanding customer service.’
Next time you are looking to buy for your bathroom I would give Sida Supplies a go. Visit Sida Supplies here.
Storm Bathroom Taps
I always get asked “why my new bathroom taps or mixers do not work as well as my old taps” well this is because in the UK there are very few true taps manufacturers most are simply importers and the products available on the market are not manufactured specifically for the low pressure market. So if you have a conventional water system with a cold water storage tank and a hot water cylinder in your airing cupboard then you will need to be careful with your product selection.
I like the way that tapstore.com explain about the high versus low pressure on their information pages which you can view here and the low pressure bathroom tap pages where they point out ranges with explanations that will work on a gravity fed water system.
There are products that will work on low pressure well but always double check the products specified minimum specified pressure rating.
The function of bathroom taps and mixers is so important if you make the wrong decision by the time you use your lovely new bathroom it could be too late the last thing you want is to wait 20 minutes to fill up a bath and by the time you get in it its cold, so take time and care in making the right choice.
Electric showers here start from £66.00 for the Galaxy G7000 and go up to the Bristan thermostatic electric shower 10.4 Kw for £391.00 a big price difference so what do you get for your money? Well the answer is simple.
1, Flow – the more the Kilo wattage the faster the flow.http://www.tapstore.com/bristan-glee-8-5-kw-electric-shower-white.html
2, Temperature stabilization – electric showers are quite temperamental and with better quality showers you get better performance control.
3, Looks – you will always pay a premium for a better looking shower.
4, Controls – some electric showers will have knobs to turn and control the shower flow and some will have more expensive buttons which will be electronically controlled.
It is important to note with all electric showers the faster the flow the cooler the water they are essentially an instantaneous water heater so paying more money for a unit of a lower wattage will not be a better quality water flow (Shower).

Hudson Reed Kubix Bathroom taps and showers have been made with the square edges cut to perfection and are one of their best selling ranges, the angular faces are highly polished and will sit well in any modern bathroom.

Newest launch for Crosswater is the Elite bathroom taps, again small as a range but as with the Crosswater way of thinking it is very individual and is designed with the precision you have come to expect from Crosswater.
The Elite side lever mono bloc basin mixer feels like it has been moulded into its shape and must be one of the most practical designs I have seen for years cleaning almost with one sweep of a cloth there is no fuss about the shape at all. With the other items in the range of bathroom taps and mixers you get the same clean edge of design although as with some of the latest releases coming out of KBB Birmingham this year there are only five items to choose from adding to the basin mixer is the tall monobloc basin mixer, the monobloc bath filler a monobloc bath shower mixer with pull out hose and handset and a single bath spout which is deck mounted.
The basin mixer is available from Tapstore.com for a special offer of just £182.99 so if you want to see this and the rest of the range click here.
