display suites. Today’s consumers want more. They want to choose a
bathroom which meets their style aspirations precisely.
As a result, manufacturers now offer an enormous choice from which
the merchant can only select a limited number of suites to stock and the
retailer selects an even smaller number to display.
And Ideal Bathrooms comes into its own as a specialist distributor of
bathrooms because it holds a huge range of bathrooms from the leading
manufacturers to supply the retailer with a much wider choice to meet
their customers’ needs. This allows the retailer to give design advice and
to help customers decide on their chosen bathroom from brochures and
computer design systems.
Ideal Bathrooms deliver stock items on a next day basis and, in those
circumstances where special orders are requested, obtain deliveries in a
matter of days.
