Studio One South West is the one-stop shop you’ve been looking for to replace your tired old bathroom.
With three fully working bathroom displays, 17 working showers and a further 18 displays to view, as well as a level access wet room complete with spa seat and underfloor heating, Studio One South West’s new showroom in Plymouth is perfect for those seeking a stunning new bathroom
or wet room.
“We always want the best for our clients, so we will source any brand for anyone, to make sure they get the materials of their choice.”
Owner Mark Fowdon and his staff have kitted out the new showroom from scratch. Mark explains: “It was always my plan to open our premier bathroom, wet room and tile showroom here in Plymouth. The idea was to create a real home experience for our customers. When people come here, they won’t need to go anywhere else. With our working displays we can demonstrate different shower systems, flow rates, wet room floor drains and toilet systems. From there, we can either just supply bathroom or tile products, or we can supply and install them for our clients.”
Mark has been in the bathroom business for 14 years and has a team of trusted tradesmen ensuring that all works are done in-house, for those customers wanting a complete ‘supply and fit’ service. Mark tells us: “Our fitters take care of everything, from the electrics, plastering and tiling to plumbing, carpentry and painting.”
In the showroom, experienced staff are always on hand to help you with everything you need to know, from design and product options to materials and installation. “Our customers get the very best advice available.”
The bathrooms and tiles at Studio One South West are all medium-to-high-end, with some of the top brands from around the world available, including Laufen, Roca, Hansgrohe & Axor, Victoria & Albert, Geberit, Vola, Artelinea and Vado. Italian tiles are imported by Cornwall Tile Centre, where Studio One South West’s two Cornish showrooms are based.
Mark continues: “We always want the best for our clients, so we will source any brand for anyone, to make sure they get the materials of their choice.”
The team can even produce computer-generated 3D visuals of how a bathroom will look during the consultation phase, so you know exactly what to expect!
“There’s not a lot we don’t know about the installation of bathrooms, wet rooms or tiles and the vast choice of equipment available. That’s why the majority of our work comes from personal recommendations by customers who’ve been impressed by the quality of our advice and service.”
