Mereway Bathrooms, one of the UK’s leading bathroom manufacturers has introduced an extensive collection of new products and finishes to reflect emerging trends in bathroom design. The new products include clever space saving options, on-trend colours and innovative materials and finishes, reinforcing the brand’s position as a market leader.
Matt colours are a highlight of the new furniture that includes 13 additional doors, four cabinet colours and two completely new ranges. These are complemented by 21 worktops to create bathrooms that can be ultra-modern, contemporary, easy living or a more traditional shaker style.
The two new ranges, Tirare and Ely are both contemporary. Tirare is a matt foil handleless door, available in three colours, willow oak, porcelain and cashmere. Ely is a modern take on a traditional shaker, a look that is extremely popular in kitchens. This door is available in three modern matt shades of light grey, pebble and pumice.
The boutique Vogue collection has the addition of two edgy concrete finishes, concrete and oak concrete. Wood finishes also feature with a Scandi inspired whitewood, natural and blonde oak also added to the Vogue collection. Grey remains a favourite colour with a light grey matt added to the Adriatic range.
For smaller bathrooms and ensuites, two new products offer innovative space saving solutions. The Curvo, an ingenious alternative to a semi-recessed basin uses a Nano waste to create space for a drawer and the Corto, a short projection WC pan which is ideal for smaller rooms and ensuites.
In addition, there have been new taps, lighting and mirrors added to complete the look. The lights utilise a natural white rather than warm or cool white, providing a better match to natural light.
The illuminated mirrors come with a no dot technology for a more superior light in the bathroom.
Mereway Bathrooms national sales and marketing manager, Tony McNeally says, “We remain committed to continually delivering innovative products that provide retailers with the very best in bathroom design and maintaining our reputation as a supplier of choice, offering some of the shortest lead times in the business, teamed with outstanding quality and customer service”.
The new collections come with an extremely attractive display deal for retailers wishing to invest in updated displays for their showroom, details on request.

To meet growing workloads, national property and construction consultancy Wakemans has brought in three new quantity surveyors and is continuing to attract young talent through its trainee scheme.
Quantity surveyors Liz Lister and Shazard Choudhary are joined by graduate quantity surveyor Jordan Hughes and two new trainees, Sean Bennett and William Taylor.
Liz has worked in the property industry for around 17 years and is a highly experienced employer’s agent and quantity surveyor delivering a range of commercial and public sector projects. Having spent time with a construction company, Shazard is interested in developing his career in consultancy to enhance his project management skills.
Jordan wants to build his career in the commercial sector and joins Wakemans from the University of Wolverhampton, having graduated in June with a BSc (Hons) degree in Quantity Surveying. Both Shazard and Jordan are working towards the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC).
Having attained their A-Levels, Sean Bennett and William Taylor will gain valuable work experience working for Wakemans and will commence their fully funded BSc (Hons) degree in Quantity Surveying, part of the company’s trainee programme at the City of Birmingham University, later this year.
They are following in the footsteps of Sam Longley, Richard Coles, Matthew Gannon, Charlie Davidson-Cox and Thomas Haigh, who started their careers as Wakemans trainees and are now at various stages of their degree studies.
John Woodhall, Executive Chairman at Wakemans, said: “The Wakemans trainee programme is our way of helping to create a skilled construction workforce. It enables young people to gain valuable experience whilst earning a living and, once qualified, former trainees typically move into a full-time role and continue to build their careers with us.”
