Hygiene at the Heart of Bathroom Design @romanltd

The UK and Europe’s leading shower designer and manufacturer, Roman, saw a rapid return to previous levels of output after lockdown restrictions were lifted. But times are now clearly different. Roman has been embracing cleanability for decades – but more so than ever before now due to COVID-19 as consumers prioritise hygiene when shopping for bathroom products.

Cleanability and hygiene are historically probably the most undersold buying criteria in bathroom products. Consumer research (such as the BMA survey in 2018) concluded that cleanability was one of the key purchasing considerations – yet it never seems to get the industry airtime it deserves. Roman consider cleanability as one of the core pillars in the design process and have embedded this within product ranges for a number of years.

Homeowners will soon be granted up to £5,000 to make their homes more energy-efficient, following new Government initiative. It is estimated that these upgrades could help households save up to £600 a year on energy bills. But how can homeowners spend this support wisely?
