"Joining the Ripples franchise has given me control of my professional life."

Chris O'Halloran, Chelmsford


Ripples is the premier bathroom franchise. We have been designing and supplying the highest quality, bespoke bathrooms for both residential and commercial clients for over 25 years. We are now one of the most respected bathroom retailers in the UK.

The Ripples retail experience is the vision of Roger Kyme who, having spent many years working at a senior level at Travis Perkins, decided to focus exclusively on luxury bathrooms and the rest, as they say, is history!

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and our exceptional customer service and, as a result, we think we do something a little different to most people in the bathroom industry. We believe that in retailing, the customer's experience is as important as the products that they buy. And that means we pay special attention to the little things because they are what matter to our clients.

We began franchising in 1995 as a family-owned business with family values and work ethics to match. Since then, whilst our network has grown substantially and our business developed into the successful model you see today, our core business is still family-owned and our values of quality and service continue to define us.

Retailer Award and the International Designer Award. Our network boasts over 50 industry awards to date.

Our franchisees operate their beautifully-appointed showrooms in a market predicted to be worth nearly £1billion by 2016 and they consistently achieve higher gross profits than the industry average.

Our franchisees are so successful because they are as passionate about the business as we are. Passionate about the level of service they provide to their clients and about offering and delivering the highest quality products. From conceptual design in-store to seeing the finished bathroom, it’s all about being the very best at what we do. Ripples clientele are looking for more than just a bathroom, they’re looking for the experience. And together, we exceed their expectations.
