Welcome to TM Hughes & Son. We offer bathroom design and installation in Witham and the surrounding areas.
We undertake repairs, upgrades, refurbishments and brand new full bathroom installations. So whatever work you need for your Bathroom, we can help you.
We have a highly competent and experienced team comprising bathroom designers, plumbers, gas safe registered heating engineers, tilers, electricians and carpenters to cover all aspects of bathroom design and installation.
Our team have installed many bathrooms in Witham over the past three decades. We install all types of bathrooms on all ranges of budget.
Our bathrooms are built to last while providing reliable service daily for many years.
All bathrooms are carefully quoted. We have good relationships with suppliers and can source the required materials at the best possible prices.
All bathroom installations are meticulously planned and executed to ensure they are fitted in a swift yet tidy manner with as little disruption as is possible to you and your family.
The first step is to book a free no-obligation survey and quote with our bathroom fitter.

No two bathrooms are the same. They are all different shapes and sizes and fitted with different grades of materials, fixtures and fittings.
To design and quote a bathroom properly requires a visit from our friendly bathroom fitter.
Please book an appointment at a convenient time for our bathroom fitter to visit. Once at your property, the fitter will inspect your bathroom space, plumbing, and heating system and take measurements.
The fitter will then go through all the different parts of your new Bathroom to establish precisely what you want.
The Look & Style Of Your Bathroom
You may know precisely how you want your Bathroom to look and what colours, textures, features, fixtures and fittings you like, in which case we can quote and build a bathroom to your specifications.
Otherwise, our Bathroom fitter will suggest styles, looks and the required materials to achieve the design.
Bathroom styles are made by choosing the right flooring and wall materials along with the right shape suite and fittings that complement the colours.
Example bathroom designs/styles include
Basic: Popular in rented properties or for those who want a bathroom on a budget. It usually includes a basic suite, wall panels, single-colour tiles, and vinyl flooring.
Coastal: The living by the sea look utilises a lot of blue and white. Tiles and wood panelling are often fitted.
Contemporary: Clean, modern primary colours with large rectangular tiles and a modern square suite.
Country: Light colours with wood panelling, a traditional suite, radiators, and taps.
Mediterranean: A great style for those who like brighter and bolder colours and patterns. Feels like you’re in a Spanish villa.
Scandanavian: A modern suite with lots of white and creams for an ample, light and airy-looking space.
Victorian: Victorian Bathrooms use black and white tiles, either solid or with patterns, a traditional suite with apt taps and a high cistern Toilet.
These are only a few Design ideas. Any look is possible. We can also recreate a bathroom design you have seen online or in a magazine.
Bathroom Plumbing & Heating
Once your old Bathroom has been stripped out, the Plumbing and Heating pipes are fitted in place (if required) for your new bathroom suite, shower and heating.
We can use your existing pipework or run new pipes if the bathroom fixtures are changing position.
We can fit heated towel rails, radiators and underfloor heating.
Heated towel rails are popular as they are very convenient for storing and keeping multiple towels warm.
Heated towel rails work exceptionally well with underfloor heating, which completely warms your Bathroom from the floor up.
We have gas-safe registered engineers and electricians to fit wet or electric underfloor heating.
Wet underfloor heating works with your Boiler while electric systems are connected to the mains electric supply.
Suppose heated towel rails and underfloor heating don’t suit your bathroom design. In that case, we can fit a range of other radiators, which includes standard columns (good for traditional style bathrooms) and modern verticle and horizontal radiators, which work well in modern style bathrooms.
Bathroom Flooring has to look good while being water resistant. In addition, some bathrooms need non-slip flooring, typically those used by children and older people.
Tiles are used in many of the bathrooms we fit. Nearly everyone prefers tiles to other flooring materials.
Porcelain tiles are very hardwearing and resistant to cracking. They are also available in many patterns, colours, shapes and textures.
Vinyl is a popular alternative to tiles. It’s usually cheaper to buy while being quicker and easier to fit.
Vinyl can be purchased in boxes of tiles or on a roll. Both types are glued to the floor to keep it secure.
Vinyl is slippery when wet, and tiles can also be, although textured tiles have good non-slip properties.
Concrete is an excellent alternative to tiles and vinyl. As long as it’s treated and maintained properly, it will remain waterproof. Concrete suits many modern styles of Bathrooms and looks incredible once polished.
Rubber is a good choice in bathrooms used by older people. It’s soft and very grippy even when wet. Rubber is for safety-first bathrooms. However, it certainly isn’t the best-looking bathroom material.
Some bathroom designs and styles require wood flooring. Engineered wood is ok in bathrooms as long as you look after it and are careful not to get it too wet.
A bathroom carpet is another possibility, although we don’t recommend it as it’s difficult to clean and unhygienic. However, if you want carpet, we’ll fit it for you.
Tiles are the perfect bathroom wall material, hardwearing, waterproof, easy to clean and available in various shapes, colours and patterns in ceramic, glass, slate and even marble. Bathroom walls are partially or fully tiled; tiles are always used in and around the bath and shower areas unless wall panels are fitted.
Wall Panels offer 100% waterproofness and are much quicker to fit than tiles as a single panel runs floor to ceiling.
Wall Panels are available in many colours and designs to complement every style of Bathroom.
In addition, different grades of wall panels are available to suit all budgets and types of bathrooms.
Many bathrooms are fully tiled or panelled. Others are only partially tiled or panelled or not at all. For the bare areas, Bathroom paint is applied, hardwearing with excellent water and moisture resistance. Hundreds of colours are available.
Treated wood is a must for some designs. For example, farmhouse, shabby chic and coastal bathrooms will utilise wood. Wood cladding is kept away from bath and shower areas and is treated for water and moisture resistance.
Once your floor is down, and the walls are covered, the next job is to install the bathroom suite.
Bathroom suites include toilets, basins, baths and shower enclosures. Toilets and basins can be set into or incorporated with storage units.
Bathroom suites are available in multiple lengths and heights in a range of classic and modern designs. The suite that best suits your bathroom style is fitted.
All Toilets fitted include the latest water-saving flush mechanisms, which preserve water and help the environment.
Various Toilet options are on offer, which include close coupled cistern, high cistern, back to the wall, comfort height, rimless, wall-hung and corner.
Basins come in various lengths to fit all spaces. Like toilets, there are many different types.
Basins include corner, countertop, inset, pedestal, stand-mounted, under the counter, and wall mounted.
Baths are generally made from acrylic or steel alternative materials include stone, steel, nickel and copper. Various lengths are available to fit all spaces.
Bath types include panel, shower baths, freestanding, walk-in and corner.
All good bathrooms include a shower. Showers are fitted in an enclosure or over the bath. Shower baths are wider at one end to accommodate a shower with enclosure, screen or curtain.
We fit all types of showers, including mixer, electric, thermostatic, digital, smart and power showers.
We fit modern taps that include hardwearing cartridges ensuring your taps remain leak-free for many years.
Like all other Bathroom materials, taps are available in many classic and modern designs, shapes and sizes.
Bathrooms need storage areas for your towels, shampoo, soap, etc. Storage units and cupboards are placed in convenient areas and can be incorporated into the bathroom suite.
For example, double drawers can be fitted underneath a basin, while the Toilet can accommodate small cupboards on either side. Of course, it depends on the size and shape of your Bathroom. However, you can rest assured your Bathroom will be fitted with ample, easy-to-use storage.
