“Olympus Bathrooms was born out of an idea to become the retailer as well as the installer; to encapsulate what the customer wants when transforming their bathroom; an all-in-one experience. Joseph and Roxanne Baker decided to launch their own bathroom showroom on the back of a successful plumbing company. Fast forward to the present day, they now have a beautiful showroom and design studio, fantastic installation teams and are excited to lead the way forward in the bathroom world with innovative design and installation.”

Specialising in bathroom design and installation, Olympus Bathrooms is an established Thomas Crapper retail partner. The company has recently completed an eye-catching cloakroom project featuring Thomas Crapper products finished with beautifully exposed copper pipes.

This project involved a complete rip-out of the downstairs cloakroom, so there was nothing but a blank canvas. After the painting was complete (with De Nimes from Farrow and Ball), the first fixing commenced. It was then on to the tiling of the floor with a traditional lace hexagonal pattern, after which the exposed copper pipework was installed up and run around the room (all bent by hand!). Leading to a hand-made towel rail, made from soldiered copper.

Of course, the star of the show was the Bentham basin, Fontley monobloc basin mixer tap and low-level cast cistern from Thomas Crapper.

“We are absolutely thrilled with our new cloakroom. Apart from the kitchen, it is the one room of our house that visitors are guaranteed to visit and now I know they will be seriously impressed once they open the door! We chose Thomas Crapper because it is in keeping with the traditional element of the rest of our cottage and fits perfectly with the countryside vibe of the house.  We love the originality of Thomas Crapper and it has already been admired by family and friends, all wanting to do their cloakrooms in the same!
