Unless you have been living on another planet for the last few months, you will be aware that we have been going through a bit of a global situation to put it mildly! The coronavirus crisis has meant that effective refrigeration is even more crucial than usual, particularly within the medical industry. Temperature controlled environments are essential when storing vaccines, medical equipment, medicine, samples and other vulnerable supplies.

There is consequently a rise in demand for temperature control facilities and medical units, which will only increase as the summer approaches. Ongoing testing for a solution to the COVID 19 virus is vital and all sectors are being called on to support the healthcare industry. Medical cooling systems are required for laboratories, hospitals and healthcare clinics nationally.

As research continues to look at medical combinations in an effort to tackle the virus, and provide longed for results, emergency refrigeration is a must. There is a definite requirement for reliable, high performance refrigeration to ensure that test kits etc are stored safely and securely. With cooling units and systems in place, tests can be carried out and processed without issue. The need for items such as medical cabinets has grown significantly over the last few months.

Apart from the current situation, hospitals etc also need refrigerated units and cabinets for storage of medicines and tests unrelated to COVID. These facilities must be reliable, safe and secure.

Ace Your Space

A small space doesn’t mean you can’t have the bathroom you dream of, and there are several ways to make it work perfectly. By applying a little know-how, you can have a bathroom that is attractive, stylish and practical. One of the advantages that smaller bathrooms have over larger ones, is that due to their size, they can be modified more often without breaking the bank. This allows you to be brave and take risks, as you can easily change a look that isn’t working for you. There are ways of making a compact bathroom seem much more spacious, that work really well. These include:-


Mirrors will always make a room feel bigger and brighter, so placing several on the bathroom walls will bring surprising results. Mirror tiles are another option and will create an impressive illusion of space.

Light Colours

A simple way to get the feel of a bigger bathroom, is to keep the colour scheme basic and natural. Light, soft colours will give a great outcome, and you can add a feature wall with either patterned wallpaper, or a vibrant, deep colour. Matching towels and rugs in pretty shades etc look great against a plain backdrop. Or try a mural!

Functional Furniture

Buy a few pieces of bathroom storage furniture, to keep the space neat, tidy and clutter free. Clever stacking shelves can be used for towels and under sink cupboards are good for shampoos or cleaning products.

Walk-in Showers

Rather than a bath, walk-in showers with frameless panels are trendy, and can save space and provide a larger area to move about in.

Shortening a Room

A bathroom that is too tall and narrow will benefit from a slightly darker colour at the top and lighter bottom half, perhaps tongue and groove panelling.

Vinyl Floor Tiles

Rather than carpet, Vinyl flooring is practical, fresh feeling and water repellent. It’s also likely to be quite pocket friendly, and you may even get an off-cut for your small bathroom.

There are lots of other ways to have a fabulous bathroom, if you fancy a total change why not ask the experts at SJP Building Services?
