Bassetts Launch Northern Ireland’s Nightmare Bathroom Campaign

With the likes of avocado bathrooms being voted as one of the biggest turn-offs in houses*, the competition aims to prompt people to assess their own bathroom and raise awareness of how easy it is to renovate.

Judging the entries will be an expert panel led by interior designer Philip Rodgers. Philip is the owner of Philip Rodgers Design, based in Dungannon, and has worked on projects such as The Cloud 9 Skybar in the Hilton Prague as well as the Crowne Plaza and the Hampton by Hilton in Belfast.

Philip explained, “A recent bathroom trends report** revealed that 62% of people want their bathroom easy to clean and disinfect, 47% want their bathroom to relax them and 43% want good lighting in their bathroom. 0% said they wanted theirs to give them nightmares!”

Bassetts Managing Director, Alan Wright, said, “We recognise the impact a quality bathroom can have, not only on the overall of a house but also on the quality of someone’s life. We are looking forward to receiving floods of entries and may the worst bathroom win.”

The social media competition requires people to submit an image/video of their current (or not so current) bathroom to Bassetts’ Facebook page or tweet it to @bassetts_ph using the hashtag #NightmareBathrooms.

Entries to the competition are free and must be submitted by Thursday, 20th April. Five finalists will be selected to go through to the final round with the winner selected by a public vote on Wednesday 10th May 2017.

Catering for every need, ranging from boilers and radiators through to bathrooms, showers, tiles and everything in between, Bassetts currently employs over 100 people with branches in Bangor, Belfast, Clady, Coleraine, Downpatrick, Dungannon, Lisburn, Greencastle, L’Derry, Mallusk, Newry, Portadown and Omagh.
