Lakes has kicked off the new decade with a refreshed #DesignedForLife brochure. Building on Lakes’ key themes of lifestyle imagery and bathroom sets “that reflect life as lived”, the 2020 brochure includes a new dedicated section for walk-ins, the new Bay Series and Lakes Stone launched last summer, and an extended Collection of Lakes Additions.
According to the company, the brochure makes the case for the whole showering space — the glass, tray, hardware, framing and optional extras — and can help to explain the market easily and effectively whilst making the most of new selling opportunities.
Golden Ticket win
Michael Cockcroft, Director of Centurion Plumbing Services Limited, Sleaford, has won the first Big Baxi Bonanza Golden Ticket prize draw. He bought the winning boiler, a Baxi 600 Heat, from the Sleaford branch of Wolseley.
All the boilers registered on Baxi Works loyalty scheme during the first week of January were entered into the draw, and the winner was drawn at random at the end of the week. Michael’s is the first of four Golden Tickets. Three more winners will be picked at random each week and will receive a high street gift card to the value of £1000!
The new 2020 brochure from Kudos showcases its complete range of shower doors, walk-in enclosures, bath screens, shower trays and wet-room systems. The brochure is now available to download on the company’s website and includes the recently introduced Original6 shower enclosure collection and the latest additions to the Pinnacle8 shower enclosure range.
The guide also incorporates a host of new photography that shows off the selection of profile finishes that are growing in popularity and designed to suit the expanding range of popular showering and brassware finishes now available for the bathroom.
Shower Cashback Promotion
After consumer and retailer feedback in 2019, Grohe’s shower cashback promotion is back, running until 31st March 2020 with all cashback claims to be made by 30th April 2020. The latest promotion enables customers to make savings of up to £100, with products in the promotional offer spanning an array of installation and aesthetic styles.

Aimed at bathroom retailers and merchants, Ideal Bathrooms has launched its first rewards programme. A variety of prizes are to be won all year around, including Apple Watches, weekend getaways, amazon vouchers and much more, to ensure that the 2020 Rewards scheme is set to make waves with the distributor’s customers.
For every £2,020 spent, retailers will be given a unique code, and will also be entered into a prize draw to win a luxury five-star, seven-night stay in Cape Town, Mauritius or Dubai. They can then access their personalised microsite to scratch off the code(s) and see if they have won a prize.
Rolla 8 competition
Aquadart — a Cavalier Bathrooms brand — has launched the Rolla 8 which is said to combine the aesthetics of a wet room with the functionality of a shower enclosure, and is now available in anodised matt black. The 8mm toughened safety glass, 2000mm height, concealed fixings and clear seals are designed to make it a flexible bathroom solution.
To celebrate the addition to the range, Cavalier Bathrooms is inviting your trade customers to ‘Roll an 8’ on the virtual dice for the chance to win a Rolla 8 product. Those who ‘Roll an 8’ will be put into a prize draw and winners will be selected at random.
