    If you wish to have a shower tray made to a precise shape or size, a template is usually the best way to ensure a perfect fit for the bathroom. Follow this step by step guide to help you create the perfect bespoke shower tray for your bathroom area.

    Tools required:

    Maker pen
    Tape measure
    Heavy cardboard/hardwood

    Important Tips Before You Start

    A few important tips before we start. It is important to make the template from heavy cardboard or hardboard. It is also important to note that the template should be full sized and 100% accurate to the shower tray you want to receive back.

    1. Measure

    Measure out all dimensions of the item and draw the template onto the card using pencil.

    2. Check- Measure!

    Double check your measurements! Remember the phrase ‘Measure twice cut once’. Once you are happy with the dimensions and shape, cut the template out.

    3. Place Template In Location

    Double check in the required position. i.e. place the template into the position of the new bespoke shower tray and check it is correct. If not make another one!

    4. Mark Important Information

    Mark on the template as much information as possible, e.g. Seen edges, wall, shower waste positions, any cut-outs. Use a marker pen to ensure the information is seen clearly.

    5. Post to us and wait for your new made to measure shower tray!

    Get Bar and Restaurant Interiors  Prepared For an Influx of Visitors

    With all the doom and gloom we have heard on the news of late, it could be easy to forget that this is actually a very exciting year for the UK, and one we have been working towards for a long time. It is of course the year of the Olympics being held in London.

    Whether you are a true sporting fan or not, this is definitely a time to celebrate being British and take advantage of the influx of visitors this will naturally bring, and of course taking advantage of our hospitality in our bars, clubs and restaurants.

    Along with the influx of tourists the Olympics will naturally bring , there will also be the ‘feel good’ factor surrounding the whole event and summer in general. Consumers feel more confident and happier to go out and about celebrating this time and at the same time spending money on food and drink.

    The first businesses to benefit from all this frivolity will no doubt be our fantastic bars and restaurants. To make the most of these new customers, and make sure they keep on returning, businesses are trying to make the most of their premises and update the decor as best they can. It is understandable that people are still more restricted than they have been in the past with their budgets, but there are ways that you can make the most of a smaller budget whilst making your venue looking welcoming.

    Here are some tips on how to improve your bar and restaurant interiors:

    1. A lick of paint!

    It’s amazing what a repaint of premises can do to brighten it up. If you are feeling a bit more artistic, you could also create a feature wall using some of the fantastic wallpaper available. This is the year of colour – experiment with your patterns and be as bold as you dare. Look for ideas on Flockyourwall, Ideal home magazine and Luci Living design.

     2. Recover your bar surfaces with a long lasting solid surface that will look fabulous.

    At Versital we offer bar tops that are made to measure and built to last, making your return on investment a wise one. Surfaces are waterproof, high gloss and stain resistant, making them ideal to use in a bar and restaurant environment. Being a decorative fascia, the bar tops are designed to go over your existing bar structure, so can be a very cost effective way to make a big impact. You can also choose to use Versital for your table tops to keep everything matching. Remember – Veristal surfaces can be refurbished after installation, making it possible to give your bar tops a face lift the next time something big happens!

    3. Improve your washroom areas.

    It is frequently underestimated how much impact the toilet facilities have on the impression people have of your establishment. Again, repaint these, clean and freshen them and replace any equipment that isn’t in full working order. If you want to do something a bit different, you could always add some integral bowls, work tops and panels or fascia in the sparkling ‘Reflect’ range from Versital to give your bathroom areas some real impact.

    Now is the perfect time of year to get started. Don’t leave it too late – the summer will come around quicker than you think! For more ideas and advice, please have a look at some of the commercial bar installations, or call us direct on 01204380780.
