Here at UK Bathrooms we are passionate about creating a stylish and relaxing space for you to enjoy your bathroom, whether it is to revitalise you in the morning or to help you unwind at night. We have a range of showers, taps and mixers to suit a variety of styles, from the contemporary to the classic.
A bathroom is a functional space in the home, but it should not be overlooked in terms of bringing character and charisma to your dwelling. We stock only the highest quality products to ensure you get a bathroom fit that suits your property. We have partnered with Matki, a cutting edge bathroom product specialist company who produce luxury products.

Each detail is designed to last and function effortlessly, an ethos we can get behind.
We offer two ranges of Matki taps, showers and mixers: the Swadling Invincible range and Swadling Absolute 2.
The Swadling Invincible range offers a classic look, finished in high quality, endurance tested modern materials. Choosing this range gives you the best of both worlds since Matki use only the highest quality materials to make their products, so you are investing in longevity when you purchase. The classic look is suited to period properties of any type and even modern houses with a classic bathroom look will benefit from the striking smooth and sleek lines of Swadling Invincible. With vintage tap features, such as monogrammed porcelain handles and cross head taps, the Invincible range brings classic, stylish fixtures to your home.
Swadling Absolute 2
This, conversely to the Invincible, creates sharp, contemporary lines that are better suited to sleek modern apartments, houses and dwellings. Your bathroom says a lot about you and a Swadling Absolute 2 tap, shower or mixer says chic, sophisticated style. Again, you are buying a durable, timeless piece when you purchase from this range. This modern look is bold yet manages to take subtlety into consideration, with its range of concealed thermostatic controllers. What you see on the wall or basin are modern, stylish lines.
Every room in your house speaks of who you are and the journey you have been on in life. Let the bathroom be no exception. By choosing Matki you are making a statement about who you are, your desires and preferences, your raison d'etre.
The Swadling Invincible Personality Type
If the Swadling Invincible range could be a person, they would be wise, interesting and a little eccentric. They would appreciate the finer things in life and probably enjoy vintage styles. They'd be the museums at the weekend types who enjoy a gin and tonic and like to indulge in a bathing ritual from time to time. A Swadling Invincible person is open and enjoys a challenge. Often thought to be quirky, an astute collector with a penchant for nostalgia, an invincible is a classy and fun character.
The Swadling Absolute 2 Personality Type
Swadling Absolute 2s are not afraid to work hard in order to play hard. Whilst they enjoy luxury, they prefer the 'less is more' approach to decorating their homes. This character is rarely seen without a hoppy craft beer in their hands. Much more a showerer than a bather, the Swadling Absolute 2 person enjoys keeping people guessing. Popping to a modern gallery at the weekend or checking out the cocktails at a new bar, one thing the Absolute can be described as is sophisticated. They also like to have fun, as illustrated by the bold shapes picked out in their bathroom.
Which type of home suits which Matki product?
Since Matki have developed their pieces to suit a variety of dwellings, it could be suggested that their pieces are so timeless that they would work in any space. Whilst this is true, there are some distinct differences between the different ranges that simply make them suited to a particular 'type' of home. Here we have a look at some typical themes for houses and try to decide which Matki product would work best. This is so you can make a more informed choice when you come to order your Matki bathroom product.
See them all...
Often situated within a busy city, a minimalist home offers a break from the clutter of our daily lives. You're more likely to see block, pastel colours than anything patterned or garish, apart from the contemporary artwork neatly adorning the walls. Less is more for minimalist people, which leads to a definite leaning toward the Absolute 2 range.
We believe that minimalists prefer showers to baths, and as such this Swadling New Absolute 2 Exposed Shower Kit is an essential bathroom selection. Its sleek, minimalist lines will suit a contemporary home and add a touch of luxury. Made from solid brass with chrome plating, this kit is a timeless classic and has been made to repel limescale. Ideally paired with the wall mounted mixers from the range, this is chic and stylish look for any minimalist bathroom.
A vintage lover's home is filled with unusual pieces which all have a story to tell. It may be an actual period home and is likely to look a little 'busier' than the minimalist's space. For the luxury vintage lover, beautiful antiques will tie a room together. Almost synonymous with the vintage look, the Swadling Invincible range brings out the classic in any home.
The classic shapes such as the cross head invoke a sense of nostalgia, something that a vintage lover will appreciate. We know that a true vintage lover will enjoy indulging in a bath from time to time and this Matki Swadling Invincible Deck Mounted Thermostatic Bath Shower Mixer sets off a classic bathrooms style perfectly. Bringing sleek lines into the period bathroom, the thermostatic valve is nothing short of modern genius, in that it is made to deliver water at the desired temperature with unvented mains systems, pumped systems and combi boiler systems. Finished with a chrome-plated and with polished brass casings and ceramic handles, this shower mixer is both easy to care for, and elegant. Paired with cross head taps from the same range, you can create a truly vintage vibe in your bathroom, with all the luxuries of a modern system.
With space at a premium in almost any city or suburb, an apartment is likely to be a more compact space. As such, it lends itself well to the concealed, wall mounted tap units featured in the Absolute 2 range. The unique lines in this Matki Swadling New Absolute 2 Classic Wall Basin Mixer Tap are striking in any modern bathroom and create a softened industrial feel that is at once stylish and classic.
Ideal for use with basins and bidets, this is the perfect bathroom solution for any modern apartment or house. Made of solid brass with a shiny chrome plating,maintenance is easy and it looks stunning against any colour scheme. The thermostatic valve controlling the temperature and pressure of water is concealed within the wall, resulting in a tidy and contemporary look, which refuses to compromise on space. Featuring a one-touch temperature system, this mixer marries convenience with class; the perfect modern pairing!
The main things you will want to consider when choosing from either of Matki's two ranges here at UK Bathrooms is what kind of look you are going for. For example rustic, exposed walls can benefit from either the sleek, modern, minimal lines of the Absolute 2 range or the stunning cross head taps and porcelain handles featured in the Invincible. Generally speaking, the most modern spaces complement the bold and striking squares and unusual shapes associated with the newer Absolute look, and period houses blend well with the classic features of the Invincible selection.
All Matki showers, taps and mixers are made to last, to work in tandem with your heating system in order to supply you with water at the requisite temperature on demand. Whichever range you choose from and whichever system you choose, UK Bathrooms offer excellent prices, free delivery and a friendly service.
