Reduce, Reuse and Upcycle

Grand and Cheap!


Green and Construction!


Style and Upcycling!


These appear to be oxymorons. Well, it is probably because you have not dealt with Hermione Homes before.


Let’s suppose you want to renovate your bathroom.

The core of the bathroom is its plumbing. I have to say that in my experience, having used many toilets and bathrooms in the UK and in the Continent through my life, when comparing, British plumbing is lousy to say the least. Toilets don't flush well. Some water pipes are plastic, which I thought was a health risk in the first place. The drains make a gurgle when emptying. Some basins have separate hot and cold which means you either freeze your face or burn it. Other basins with a mixed output still have poor circulation, i.e. the left side of the stream is much hotter, and the right stream of water is cold.

Shall we talk about materials and aesthetics….

UK vs Continental materials. Can you compare Carrara Marble with our Durness Limestone? Or Spanish/Italian ceramics with ours? Probably not I am afraid.

Then, from an aesthetical point of view, in most bathrooms I have seen, pipes are often visible on walls and floors…… a real mess!

So, Let’s get to the real dilemma, how much is it going to cost to get the proper materials and the good plumbers who know how to make things look Grand; and how to do this in an environmentally friendly way?

This is where Hermione Homes come into play as the solution to all issues mentioned.

Hermione Homes has recently renovated a bathroom which was in a horrible state, using the best, modern materials available from the Continent, whilst fixing and reusing what could be upcycled, thus saving on cost, caring for our planet and all done in such a stylish way.
