Finalists for the KBB Master Bathroom Retailer Award for Bathrooms for the third year running, Ripples Solihull were thrilled to also be finalists for Bathroom Showroom of theYear the only showroom in Warwickshire and The West Midlands to have reached this stage. The awards celebrate those who have demonstrated the highest standards in retailing within the industry and between them Ripples have won over 47 awards for design and business acumen. Husband and wife team Martin and Lisa Hammond took over Ripples Solihull in 2004 and pride themselves on
providing their customers with a fabulous retail experience selling the highest calibre brands the world of bathrooms has to offer.
Ripples want a visit to their showroom Knowle High Street to be more than just a shopping trip. Lisa says: We are less sales people and more skilled bathroom stylists and designers who listen to our customers to help them make the most of the hidden potential of their bathroom.
We believe customer service is paramount and we take great pride and
put tremendous effort into all our projects, says Martin. As a result, many of our clients come to us having been recommended by friends or family.
Ripples Solihull display and sell products from the top manufacturers in the industry as well as displaying bespoke items such as handmade
furniture, glass, mirrors, lighting and stone. Lisa says: We find that having bespoke options enables us to design truly individual solutions for our clients not limited by range or fashion.
When Ripples first opened it was fairly traditional all roll top baths and high level cisterns. Today wet rooms are de rigeur and the big rain shower heads and radiators that look like pieces of art are changing the look of bathrooms.
This is a space that is now not just a place to wash but a haven in which to spend extra time relaxing in. Music systems, waterproof TVs, underfloor heating, Turkish steam and mood lighting all help to create a luxurious mini-spa experience.
A walk around the showroom helps you imagine this put into practice and to fantasise about your very own dream bathroom . . .
