Our team

At Original Bathrooms we care passionately about the bathroom fittings we sell. Our desire is to give excellent and informed service, build on our relationships and have a little fun along the way. Above all - We really, quite simply, love bathrooms!

ANDREW SHANAHAN, Managing Director

'Our motivation and desire is to give an excellent and informed service and maintain the traditions of our long established business. Our philosophy, together with our history, vast knowledge and experience gives us our unique position in the bathroom industry today. We can advise on every aspect of design, supply and product specification and we have access to a vast amount of technical product information. We offer the latest CAD service including 3D plans and we give a complete service to support architects, designers, specifiers, hoteliers and developers. We can supply many brands of leading sanitary ware, baths, shower screens and equipment, taps, tiles (stone, marble and granite) as well as many accessories including extractors and under floor heating. Really there is little we cannot supply for the bathroom. 

Many thanks to Monika for taking all the portraits of the Team.
