About Us

We’re just different, at Designer Walls & More Ltd ( Formerly Posh Bathing )

One of the regular comments we hear from clients who take time to visit the showroom and discover our taste in bathroom furniture, ” I wish we called here first” which means we’re doing something right.

A traditional bathroom showroom were not, we’ve always been more of a boutique for quality bathroom furniture, from branded manufacturers, mainly European from Italy, Spain & Germany.


Burgbad Co Co Range

We are also known for large illuminated mirrors from Germany, using the latest LED lighting designed to give the perfect light, for make-up and bathroom lighting, options for made to measure sizes and bespoke lighting options.

Decorative finishes are a particular favourite of ours, and we have plenty decor options to offer you, with a range of stunning colour schemes to match, we have matching decor radiator in wet or electric formats, and complimenting mirrors.

Suppling a ‘Touch of Elegance’ to each room, established ‘Destination Store’ in the North West since 1988 and the same ownership.

From the outside you would be right to think ‘small shop, not much to look at, and rightly thinking ‘is it worth parking and stopping to look?’

In truth as our showroom is made up of 3 buildings and is affectionately known as ‘The Tardis’ by our customers new and returning, only you can decide if it’s worth the visit.

The showroom has two floors of realistic and practical bathroom furniture displays, mirrors and cabinets that represent the housing stock in the North West, and our recent extension to the rear has doubled our displays, it’s also been ‘work in progress’ since 2016 as we have been continually updating and introducing inspiring different product ranges, with an enviable portfolio of bathroom furniture, were worth the visit.


We have a unique selling approach in the showroom, you will never feel under pressure to make a purchase, and probably because we know our portfolio of products will probably change your initial thought process.

Fabulous additions to the portfolio, now include Kitchens, Bedrooms, Home Office, Flooring, 3D Wall Panels, Ceramic tile from Italy, Industrial lighting, and much much more.

We’ve increased our Italian portfolio too, not everyone likes same old same old.

Our experience and service at Designer Walls & More Ltd  (Formely Posh Bathing ) has served the surrounding area’s too, we regularly produce designer bathrooms in towns such as Bowdon, Hale, Hale Barns, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and Altrincham, we also now boast clients in Norway & Holland, but we have never forgotten our roots, in Bolton, Bury, Chorley and surrounding areas with our very popular ‘Supply & Fit’ packages.

Fitting Wetrooms-Steamrooms & Bathrooms since 1988


Gary Walmsley, the owner of Designer Walls & More Ltd (Posh Bathing Ltd ) says, ”I take a very personal approach with all my clients, you can have every design aid possible, but it cannot replace a conversation with a client at their home, I like to know about your lifestyle and bathing requirements in order to advise on a wetroom, steamroom or bathroom & kitchen project that is as individual as you and your family.”


We think so; it’s certainly different from the others in the area, a £30,000 refit and investment in new bathroom, kitchen & interior products during 2015/2016, ensuring that Designer Walls & More Ltd is always up to date with the current design trends and styles, possibly ahead of the game in some respects.

Something for every taste, something for every room, don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself, browse our website, book an appointment.

New products such as Laufen, Alape, Burgbad, Fiora, Zierath, Keuco, Glass 1989, maybe not household names, but very large companies in Europe.



Naturally we all want a competitive quote, and at Designer Walls & More (Formerly Posh Bathing ) we believe we deliver that on a regular basis, however there is a ‘New kid on the Block’ called ‘Internet Prices’ affectionally known as ‘A race to the bottom’ in the trade, but its a ‘mind set’ of a small percentage of the buying public that we will never alter, and have no wish too compete against,  as price v quality is something we never compromise.

The way we structure our quotes leave the client plenty of scope to alter our clients price package to suit their budget without the need to buy unbranded products from the far east, but having a realistic budget to start of with is a great help.

Our labour costs in regard to a package deal are much less that the multiples, and the average full fit is 7/8 working days, if carried out to our exacting specifications.
European taps and showers, designed and built to give good service, and there are parts available for at least ten yrs after production of a model ceases, in most cases.Sanitary-ware should be heavy and dense, this reflects quality and depth of glazing, otherwise it will be hard to clean, and will start to stain within months. Fitted bathrooms packages from £5500.00, time to look again at Designer Walls & More.

Kitchens supplied to the trade, now extended to the public at Designer Walls & More, working with a British Manufacturer ‘Crown Imperial’ we have ranges to suit the DIY & Trade called ‘Lifestyle Range’ which competes on a level with local outlets such as ‘Howdens’ ‘Wren’ ‘B&Q’ on both Kitchens & Bedrooms.


Absolutely not, but if you want Mercedes you go to a Mercedes showroom, Designer Walls & More Ltd is no different in principle. Using the car analogy, if you want a more entry level German car you go to say VW, VW offer a great products range with a fantastic track record of service and quality, built to last but more affordable, its not ‘Rocket Science’

Designer Walls & Mor, sells wetroom, steamroom & bathrooms from entry level to top level, each sale from DesignerWalls & More Ltd is a special one, and each customer is a special customer whatever the budget, because word of mouth is the best advertisement for Designer Walls & More.

Ask around, estate agents can’t be wrong when mentioning who fitted the bathrooms on a home that sold quickly, and near market valve.
Clients all over Lancashire, Cheshire, Manchester & The Fylde coast can’t be too wrong.

We don’t compete with the nationals on TV, and the large retail park multiples, we don’t have too, have you checked the real time reviews of these companies lately. Ahemm !!!!

Fitting Wetrooms-Steamrooms & Bathrooms since 1988


Years of installing bathrooms in Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Preston, Rossendale, Ramsbottom, Chorley and Wigan and retailers of Bathrooms brands such as Villeroy & Boch, Duravit, Hansgrohe, Dornbracht, Kermi, etc etc etc. have given Posh Bathing an enviable reputation of being a company to trust with enough experience to carry out any bathroom project, large or small and are willing to advise on supply only projects that we have supplied.

Designer Walls & More Ltd is locally owned by Bolton born Gary Walmsley, with roots in Daubhill, Morris Green, Over Hulton and presently Bromley Cross, and has over 37yrs experience, of fitting bathrooms and domestic plumbing, and on a personal note, has supported and managed local football teams ( Turton u14s 15s &16s ) and is a keen motorcyclist, and nuts about sking, and a well known family man.

Working with the public for all these years has given me the advantage of knowing the level of service that potential customers require, and hopefully once we have visited your home you will soon see that we are a trustworthy company with in house fitting services, along with independent installers who have had a long association with us.

We have been key holders for so many properties over the years, we have lost count, but this kind of trust takes years to achieve, call into Designer Walls & More Ltd and see why we are trusted, and we are very animal friendly, too a point were we will let your dog or cat out for a breather.


We only deal in branded products, usually from British & Europe’s finest manufacturers and this has paid dividends for us over the years, from a reliability point of view and from a returning customer point of view, and this combination leads to recommendations and ultimately customer satisfaction.

Some of our clients have been returning to the showroom for bathrooms, as they move house etc, ( 19yrs is the current record ).

Cheaper unbranded products appear to be good value at a glance, but are they really, so if you are working on a budget but would like quality products why not just ask us to try to tailor to you needs. On the other hand why not just see what we can do with your bathroom. Contracts we have carried out have ranged from £4k to nearly £40k.
