Roman Christmas SOS

CO DURHAM: Roman, the UK’s leading shower manufacturer and designer, came to the rescue and showered one family with a new shower enclosure, tray and valve in the Christmas Special of DIY SOS.



DIY SOS came to the rescue of Mike from Littlehampton, who had spent his life savings on home improvements so his sons could come and visit, but he was left in the lurch by rogue builders who essentially destroyed his house. Roman worked with DIY SOS to give Mike the bathroom of his dreams.


To ensure Mike would be showered in luxury, Roman supplied an enclosure from their exclusive Sculptures collection – a luxury range of enclosures featuring 10mm thick glass and contemporary minimalist framing. Roman also supplied a high specification shower valve from their range and, to complete the look, the Sculptures solid surface low-level tray for the ultimate in minimalist styling.


Roman are regulars on DIY SOS, having worked on a number of bathroom projects over the last five years. Roman works with the research team to both recommend the types of products that would work best for a particular project and to supply and deliver the products that will transform the bathroom.


David Osborne, managing director at Roman commented: “It’s great to work with such a well known and professional programme. DIY SOS is a well established part of the BBC schedule and to help them out with such a big project as the one featured in the Christmas Special was fantastic. Their team is great to work with and this particular programme was quite a special one to be involved with.”
