All of our baths can be painted. So all of our acrylic baths, stone cast baths, fibre glass and gel-coat baths can all be painted. The exterior only of the bath is painted, the interior and top edge of the bath are left unpainted. Where baths have feet the feet can also be painted if required, either in the same colour as the bath or a different colour (see next question below for more details of that).

Usually the lead time for a painted bath is between 2 and 4 weeks. In cases of great urgency (which are many) we can often be quicker than this and we will do out best to meet any deadlines you have.

We know our paint, and what we don't know we can find out. So the short answer is we can use all (paints) and any (colours) as long as they suitable.. The most popular brands of paint we are asked to use are Farrow and Ball, Little Greene, Fired Earth and Paint and Paper Library - over 700 colours to choose from between them.

We can also paint any RAL Colour including metallic finishes. and we can match colours (using a spectroscope) to any sample you can supply.

We generally use a matt eggshell finish which is knock-resistant and washable and performs well in a domestic bathroom but we can use gloss, and other suitable finishes. If you have a particular requirement not mentioned here call or email us and we will help you get what you want.

All the bath feet supplied with our baths can be painted.

If you would like your bath feet painted please ring us on 0113 2360214 or email us for prices.

Some manufacturers, such as Burlington, supply their bath feet in paintable finishes onto which we can prime and paint directly.

Other manufacturers, such as Royce Morgan, supply their bath feet in chrome only. In these cases we cannot paint directly onto the surface with wet paint (like Farrow and Ball) as the paint would just run off. So instead we powder coat them first and then paint on top of that.

Powder coating is a process which paints using a dry powder that sticks to the surface of the metal which is then baked in an oven. It is great on its own as a final finish for matt black or matt white feet but it also provides a stable surface onto which we can paint with Farrow and Ball or other suitable paints.

These differences in how we have to go about painting one kind of bath foot and another account for the different prices for painting some bath feet rather than others.

Don't Rely on Computer Colours: The main issue when it comes to choosing a paint colour is to get an accurate idea of how the paint will look when its on your bath. The worst way of doing this is to just use the colour as shown on a computer screen as a guide. The way in which colours are specified for computing, whilst covering a very large number of different Red-Blue-Green combinations, cannot capture the richness of the wavelengths reflected by quality paints such as Farrow and Ball. In addition different computer screens will render colours quite differently.

Use a colour swatch or colour card instead: A far better way to start is with a colour swatch or colour card from the manufacturers. We keep Farrow and Ball swatches so ring us for one if you need one, or you can order one directly from the Farrow and Ball website, likewise for other manufacturers. Typically a swatch or colour card will show you each colour accurately reproduced on an area about 1 or 2 be aware that when the colour is on a larger area whatever qualities it seems to have on a small area will be more impact-full. Light colours will look lighter. Deep, dark colours will look deeper and darker.

Get Sample Pots: So the next stage if you really want to work hard making your decision is to order sample pots of paint from the manufacturers, these can be bought directly from the manufacturer at low cost. Once you have your sample pot, paint a piece of card or paper of at least A4 size (the bigger the better) with it and look at it in your bathroom under the various lighting conditions that you will have in there. This will give you a really accurate understanding of what kind of experience your chosen colour will give you.

If you need any help or advice don't hesitate to ring us on 0113 2360214 or email us.

Or use our painted baths page to help you choose.

We generally paint using a matt eggshell finish. This is the same kind of finish you might use on skirting boards, window boards or interior doors so it is washable, knock-resistant and relatively hard-wearing. It will last in the same way and withstand similar usage to the same paint on your doors and skirting boards. So with care you can expect it to last 10 years or more.

If you get dirty marks on the surface of the paint use a soft damp cloth - a damp microfibre cloth is by far the best kind to use - be as gentle as you can be but you can be quite robust with it if you need to be and this will remove most marks.

If this happens ring us for advice on 0113 2360214, sometimes its possible to fix a scuff by careful use of a solvent such as t-cut, at other times the best way is to use a small atomiser to respray the affected area. If you need this we can send you a suitable atomiser pre-loaded with paint.

First the surface of the bath is prepared.

This means rubbing the bath down to provide a key for the primer, during this phase tiny faults that can't be seen on a gloss white surface but that can be seen when the surface is painted with a matt finish are filled and corrected.

The bath is then expertly sprayed with two coats of primer. The second primer coat is then matted down - that is, it is rubbed down all over with fine abrasive paper by hand to provide a fine and even surface.

The bath is then sprayed with two top coats, matted down for a second time and then sprayed with a third and final topcoat to give an unsurpassed finish.

First get a shipping quote from us: To make an order that is to be shipped overseas ring us on 0113 2360214 or email us with the contents or approximate contents of your order and the country and postcode to where delivery is to made. We will then be able to get you a shipping quote and approximate lead time.

Then place your order: Once we have that we can take your order over the phone or we can give you a special product code to select your correct delivery cost online and place your order on the website.

We can ship to all European countries and to most mainland European addresses including non-EU countries like Switzerland.

The main restriction to addresses that we can ship to in these countries are accessibility for the large articulated lorries on which our palletised overseas deliveries are made. If you have a doubts contact us with your address and we will let you know if we can delivery to you.

The cost of delivery varies greatly across the EU and not always how you might expect. The price for shipping a bath to a mainland address varies from about £90 to about £300. To get a rough idea have a look at the lists of example prices on the overseas shipping page, but to get a proper price email us your country and postcode (or full address if the Republic of Ireland) and we will send you a quote in just a few short hours.

We deliver to most of Europe in 10 to 15 working days, For western Europe we may be much quicker and for some eastern european countries it may take a little longer.

For smaller items such as taps and metal shower parts we usually ship by UPS and once dispatched from us we email you a tracking link where you can follow its progress on either a next day or 2 to 5 day delivery.

For larger and heavier consignments including baths, WC's, basins etc. we ship overseas on pallets. Delivery is by a large articulated lorry to the nearest public access point that is accessible. The local carriers who do the last leg of the delivery will ring you in advance to book in the delivery for a specific day. You need enough person power to move your delivery into your property. We keep an eye on the whole process to make sure you get a quality service every step of the way and we are constantly available to answer any queries you have.

The short story is yes we can, it can cost up to double what similar onshore deliveries may cost and take an extra 5 to 7 days than would an equivalent mainland delivery. The longer story is that for some of our least expensive baths where the profit level in the bath is low then way may decline shipments where the cost of shipping is very high. We have to have a reasonable ratio between the profit in the sale and the cost of shipping. Ring us on 0113 2360214 or email us with your details and we can confirm if we can do it and get you a quote.

Yes, this is no problem, you will not have to pay UK VAT but you may have to pay local import taxes, however this is easily done and we can advise on all matters relating to this kind of thing.

Our overseas bath and ceramics deliveries are made by large articulated lorries so the answer I'm afraid is no. Maybe in 20 years drone technology will have advanced to the point where you can have your bath delivered same day, but not yet. Whilst we wait for that glorious day perhaps we can find a local business who can take delivery on your behalf and who your builders/plumbers can then collect from?

If you are a private citizen in the EU then you must pay UK VAT when buying from the UK. If you are buying on behalf of a VAT registered EU company then supply us with your company details and VAT number and you the do not have to pay VAT.

If you are outside of the EU including Switzerland then you do not have to pay UK VAT, so to find the price you will pay divide the price shown on the website by 1.2. For example, if an item costs £100 on the web site, you will pay 100/1.2 = £83.33. You may have to pay an import customs duty when the item is delivered to you and this will depend on your local national tax laws. We can help with any queries you have about this or anything else to do with shipments outside of the EU.

We Arrange a Delivery Schedule: We will contact you within 1 working day with a delivery schedule. For smaller orders (e.g. taps and waste kits) we will also email you a tracking link the day before delivery and for larger orders (baths, basins, WCs) we will ring you the day before delivery with an approximate delivery time.

We Get More Info if required: If your order includes a painted bath, painted basin or item of painted furniture we will contact you within 1 working day to confirm your chosen colour(s). We will not charge your card until we have confirmed your chosen paint colour.

We Expertly Check your Order: Our expert staff will check all the items in your order for compatibility and completeness. If we believe you may have ordered incompatible products, missed vital items out or included items that you may not need we will contact you to ensure we get your order right.

We Charge Your Card: Only when all the details of your order are confirmed will we charge your card and then email you an invoice/receipt.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to ring us on 0113 2360214 or email us.

The usual delivery time is about 3 to 5 working days for smaller items (e.g. taps, showers) and approximately 5 to 10 working days for larger orders (e.g. WCs, baths). For larger items once we know your postal area we can give you a choice of specific delivery days. If its urgent we can often deliver much more quickly, including with next day or 48 hour deliveries.

If your order includes a painted bath or nickel plated or bnrushed nickel tap this may add between 5 and 10 working days to your delivery timescale. Ring or email to ask for the latest lead times.

Our usual carriers deliver with a luton van or large transit van so they will get down most of the roads or lanes that a large car can get down.

For smaller items sent by UPS or royal mail you will get a tracking link but not a delivery time.

For deliveries of larger items with our usual carriers you get an approximate delivery time the working day before the delivery occurs, we can also have them ring you on the day when they are a short distance from you. If you need this add a note to your order in the checkout or ring us on 0113 2360214 or email us and let us know what you need.
