It will see an emphasis on growing its digital footprint, investing in its people development programme and streamlining stock with suppliers to support growth.

Trading since November 2014, Bathroom Takeaway sells online and offline.

It has a flagship retail store in Salford, a store in Sutton Coldfield, plus a 10,500-pallett capacity distribution centre in Trafford, Manchester.

Director of Bathroom Takeaway Chris Norton said: “Digital marketing has always been a huge passion of mine and with this added investment, we can now further strengthen our digital capabilities and capitalise on the progress we’ve made so far.”

He continued: “For the time being, we will be reducing our presence in mainland Europe which frees up £100,000 to go towards the UK arm.

“With house price growth continuing to slow whilst we await the outcome of Brexit, we’ve seen an increased trend for homeowners to invest in their bathrooms and kitchens rather than moving home.

“So now seems like the perfect time to make this added investment and pass our savings onto our customers.”

His view is mirrored by independent retailers taking part in twitter chat #KBNConvo, who said sales of kitchens and bathrooms had picked up in 2019.
