The UK’s largest bathroom and tile store is set to open in Birstall this week, with a launch event for traders.

Easy Bathrooms has transformed its former head office, warehouse, and showroom in west Yorkshire, into a 55,000ft2 bathroom superstore, following weeks of renovation work and £200,000 investment.

It follows the brand’s expansion and move into its new, purpose-built 330,000ft2 HQ in Wakefield earlier this year.

The footprint of the Birstall showroom – which originally opened in 2017 – has now tripled in size.

With 300 fully tiled bays, it displays thousands of bathroom furniture, lighting, and heating products, while a third of the showroom is given over to outdoor living, including external tiles and dedicated installation products.

Outdoor furniture brand, 4 Seasons Outdoor, also has a concession in the store, displaying dining and lounge sets.

The opening of the store is being marked with a event for traders in the evening of Thursday 7 September, with a DJ, BBQ, beers, games, Fix Radio presence, and a raffle raising money for children’s hospice, Forget Me Not.

Commenting on the launch of the store Craig Waddington, founder of Easy Bathrooms, said: “We are proud to be opening the UK’s largest bathroom and tile store. In the last three years, we’ve invested a lot in new, on-trend product ranges, from ultra-large 1200mm x 1200mm tiles, to framed shower screens and clever bathroom lighting products.

“The new showroom means we can display most of our products in one place, making it a full experience, where homeowners can browse our products and design a bathroom with our 3D planner service.

“We are also investing in Virtual Reality technology, so customers can put a headset on and see how their bathroom layout works, and how the space looks, allowing them to make informed choices or changes.”
