Independence Day!

Screen Shot 2016-07-04 at 18.39.024th July is a special day for our American friends.  It is the day on which they celebrate the Declaration of Independence, which was adopted on 4 July, 1776. Under this declaration, the then thirteen colonies of America declared themselves as states of America and no longer part of the British Empire.   

23rd June is being hailed by some as Independence Day for Britain.   As the aftermath of the Brexit vote rumbles on, and the face of British politics seems to change on a daily basis, time alone will tell what long term effects it will have.


The BKU Awards 2016

But for Stone and Chrome, 23rd June was Independence Day for a completely different reason!    In our last blog we mentioned that we had reached the finals of the BKU (Bathroom & Kitchen Update ) Awards 2016.   The Awards ceremony took place in the stunning environs of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and over 250 members of the industry came together to celebrate the achievements of the past 12 months.

We are delighted to report back that we were Highly Commended in two categories:  Bathroom Showroom of the Year and Independent Bathroom Retailer of the Year.  The commendation for Independent Bathroom Retailer of the Year was particularly welcome as we are proud to be an independent family business with over 25 years experience and a genuine passion in our work.

The Customer is Always Right!

Both commendations confirm some of the many excellent reviews we have received from happy Stone and Chrome customers. Here are direct quotes from four reviews received in the last month alone:


“The choice & range is fantastic but more importantly the friendly, knowledgeable help is unlike any other bathroom sales person I have ever met!  ….  From start to finish Stone & Chrome, particularly Shane, have made it a smooth & easy transaction.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them for your next bathroom shopping experience!”


“The service provided by Jim and Shane has been outstanding and right from the start when it was slightly overwhelming we were helped to make the right choices for our budget.  The result is a stunning wet room and family bathroom. The downstairs toilet has been brought into the 21st century with the products that we have chosen – We are very happy”


“We shopped around at lots of different bathroom showrooms in the area but felt that Jim & Shane instantly understood what we were looking for.  They have a stunning showroom full of wonderful ideas …..   Thank you Jim & Shane for making everything so easy for us!  ….. We will certainly be recommending you to any friends or family looking for bathrooms.”


“We get so many compliments from friends and family.  We would definitely recommend Stone & Chrome for the stone they offer.  The showroom is stunning, we will certainly be back for the next project!”


The Stone and Chrome Difference

It is encouraging to receive such good reviews that confirm everything that we are trying to do at Stone and Chrome.  We aim to offer a personalised service to each and every customer that helps them to decide what they want and then see it through to completion.  We can offer either a complete service – including design, supply and installation – or any part of the service that you need.  


In our next blog we will talk in more detail about the art of bathroom design.  Meanwhile why not pay a visit to our award winning showroom to see for yourself what we have to offer?   It has full sized wetroom, steamroom and bathroom displays, fully tiled with natural stone.   You can examine the quality of our workmanship and easily picture how beautiful a Stone & Chrome bathroom will look in your home.
