Founded in 1978, Centralheat Limited (Bathstyle) has been successfully trading for over 40 years in the plumbing and heating industry. Within this time Centralheat has established itself as one of London’s leading luxury bathroom retailers, as well as continuing to provide plumbing and heating supplies to help over a million customers achieve their dream bathroom.
Our family run business began when Joe (Founder) had a vision to fulfil the demand he identified as a builder, supplying goods to local companies and plumbers. Centralheat soon came to be known as the plumbing company of choice around West London, with its rapid growth occurring as a result of unbeatable price, service and availability. By the late 2000’s we began to expand by specialising in bespoke bathrooms, offering some of the finest and latest products.
We are proud to offer an extensive range of affordable and luxury items from well-established Italian, German and British brands. This allows us to cater for all needs and achieve our ultimate goal: helping you to create your own personal escape room.
1969: Joe worked in construction.
1978: During their work, Joe and his brother noticed a shortage of plumbing and heating suppliers.
Using their knowledge of the field, they set up Centralheat to fill the gap in the market.
They opened up premises on Kingsley Road, Hounslow, a prime location for supplying to local tradesmen.
1980s: Centralheat became the leading supplier for Valliant combi boilers, supplying Vaillant products to big firms in and around London.
A warehouse was purchased in the Midlands to accommodate our large supply of goods, ensuring adequate availability at all times.
1990s: Centralheat welcomed two new members of management: Ms. Jas, as company administrator, and Mr. Jas, now managing director.
With a bigger team, we underwent a substantial period of growth and began looking to expand.
We began to realise that good plumbing and heating was only half the story – customers also needed the perfect bathroom to go with it.
We therefore acquired a new 3000 square foot showroom to expand our product range to include tiles and luxury bathroom products.
2010s: Centralheat welcomed an important addition to the team: Kumar joined and became online sales manager. As a result, Centralheat’s new website was launched.
Due to large amounts of business being redirected online, we freed up time to focus on bespoke bathrooms and carried out a major showroom renovation.
Our new subdivision, Bathstyle, was set up to feature our bespoke services.
Raj joins sales and marketing management.
Keeping up with the times, the company undergoes rebranding. Our website is restructured to provide an optimal, user-friendly experience, and our social media accounts are managed.
We also secure a contract with underfloor heating firm, acquire additional warehouse space to accommodate for digital growth, and open another store for affordable bathrooms.
We are excited for what the future will bring and hope you will join us on our journey.
Whether you’ve seen something online or need help choosing a product in-store, we are happy to help at our Centralheat counter (side entrance). We hope to offer an all-round, convenient service – this is also where you can purchase plumbing and heating supplies. So do not hesitate to come in and speak to us, whatever your needs may be.
Our Hounslow showroom, trading as Bathstyle, is where we focus on designing dream bathrooms according to your requirements. Bathstyle was set up in 2010 when the successful launch of centralheat.co.uk freed up a lot of time, allowing us to focus on designing and supplying luxury bathrooms in-store. We underwent a major renovation in order to segregate the Bathstyle showroom from our Centralheat counter. Our showroom stays constantly keeping up to date, exhibiting the latest and most extravagant bathrooms. Come in and be inspired.
See ‘Our Services’ page for full details on the bespoke services we provide.
Centralheat Trade (in-store only)
We have opened a showroom to showcase our affordable luxury range consisting of low cost, high-quality products. Our inspiration for this arose from the rapid increase of multiple occupancy and rental housing requiring multiple bathrooms at reasonable cost. We are very selective with what we supply as we understand the importance of having high-quality products with low maintenance.
We welcome all customers to visit us and check out our hard work, whether you hope to gain some inspiration or simply require a little advice. Please feel free to pop in anytime!
