 Hi, my name is Alan. Thank you for visiting my site. I am here to help. As a bathroom fitter I will do more than just installation. I am only too happy to take on major bathroom alterations and refits. We will advise on bathroom design and what can be done. We are a small local, friendly bathroom installation team.

For bathrooms we work in the Ipswich/Colchester area and out to Bury, Clacton, Suffolk and North Essex.
For wet rooms we cover some of the South of England. You can call me on 07957 855441 or 0800 0748405 or E-mail me at enquiries@apollo-plus.co.uk

Wet Rooms
I specialise in wet rooms and have been making them for twenty years having fell in love with them in Spain. We are fast and efficient, and can cost as little as half the cost of a big company, who normally hire sub contractors. So when you want to speak to someone about your project, you call me. You do not speak to some office clerk that hasn't a clue.

I can give help with planning and designing Bathrooms and Kitchens. How to simply create a clean, fresh, light and airy looking bathroom. The above is an example of our 'special' bathrooms. But our Gallery is full of normal, real bathrooms, not huge expensive showroom fantasies!!! Although we can also build your dream bathroom at a realistic cost. We will give you a fixed price quote, and references should you wish. Do not go for the first quote just because you think it might be fair. We also stick to our prices and never take money up front.

For a quality low cost bathroom, some hints and tips.

For a great Bathroom, avoid a trendy fashionable look. If you choose the latest fashion, some time in the future it will look dated. You may want to sell the house one day so remember that your taste may not appeal to everyone. So keep it simple. Stick to white or almost white tiles. A light marble effect looks good and will not date. It has been around since ancient Greece. A large tile makes the room look bigger. Always a white suite. White does not date and always looks fresh and clean. That also makes the room look bigger. You can always add a coloured theme with accessories. Having said that, a dark tile can look exotic. But you will need to spend on lighting with bright, focused spots and it is best if it is a slightly larger room than average. It's your choice. But take into account, would it put off a buyer?

Wow we were so pleased with our wet room . Can't believe how lovely Apollo Design have made it . They were here on time every day, kept the mess down and were polite . The price was really good, we could not believe the price being so much cheaper, than the other estimates we had.

I really feel it important to voice when a awesome job has been done. I've just had my bathroom converted into a wet room by Apollo Design and I'm so happy and impressed with the result. Alan, Lee, and paul worked so hard, always arrived on time, were lovely to have around and very respectful of my home, the workmanship is of the highest standard and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. The upheaval was kept to a minimal, great job, by a great bunch of guy's.

Whilst I was very much looking forward to having the bathroom converted to a wet-room I was admittedly dreading what I assumed would be the very trying circumstances of my having to live within my home, a small bungalow, during the actual conversion process itself. I need not have been concerned, Alan and Lee made the entire week as painless as possible for me with their very professional approach, patience and good humour, whatever the circumstances. They arrived each morning promptly as agreed, met every challenge they found beneath my 1930s bathroom floor as only experienced specialists could do, resolved any issue, and moved forward. The end result for me a delightful wet-room, which is a pleasure to use, thank you gentlemen, I am very pleased and would recommend the company highly.

" Alan and team.

A belated thanks for your usual excellent work last winter.
You upgraded the bathroom at my flat. I wanted a high-end walk in shower with new tiling, toilet and vanity sink.
You did a superb job using a mixture of limestone, marble and quartz tiles. I admire it every time a take a shower - it's lovely.

I needed to upgrade my late parents' house prior to letting. This was to be done on a tight budget.
You bettered all the quotes I obtained. You fitted a new kitchen, new bathroom and installed a shower-room.
You made lots of helpful suggestions as my brief was a little vague. Another great job.....

Best wishes David Perry "

Alan and his team arrived on time and completed the conversion of our en-suite to a wet room within the estimated five days quoted. They did their best to minimise mess and disruption, and worked without fuss, consulting us whenever necessary. They did as they say. "What it says on the tin!" We are very pleased with the result and would recommend them to anyone.

Thanks again.

Being new to our area and not being able to secure a personal recommendation, we were initially attracted to testimonials posted on Alan's web site alluding to a friendly, professional service with a high degree of attention to detail. On the strength of this we met with Alan Boswell, which served to reassure that he was both trustworthy and conscientious. As such, we asked Alan if he would fit our en suite. Not having any particular yardstick to compare, I would guess that the task was reasonably demanding in the complexity of materials to be used and the weight (both physical and otherwise) of the task. I would stress that Alan and his workforce were up to this task. They were also communicative, flexible and inventive where required. As is always the case in such circumstances, there are unforeseen obstacles to overcome, which Alan met without drama and with efficiency. All in all a pleasure to work with and I have no qualms in recommending for similar work.

Mr Hunter March 2013

Dear Alan,

My mother's move has gone extremely well, thank you.

"My disabled mother's move to a bungalow was dependent on a wet room being available. The plumber that looked at the existing small shower room said he wasn't sure it would be possible. However, Alan came and had a look and said "no problem". And it wasn't! Apollo arrived on time, left sooner than anticipated, had some good ideas, and did an excellent job. Everyone has since commented on how well the wet room works and how much lighter and better it looks than before. We are very pleased and would recommend the company."

Caroline Tompton April 2012.


As promised a few words of support....

I liked the fact that Alan was the first to quote for the job and showed enthusiasm for the project. We had a challenge regarding the waste and Alan was not at all phased. Work commenced with his colleague and it is clear they have a structured, methodical and tidy approach to their work. The quality of the work was exceptional. I was totally satisfied with the job and would recommend Al and his team to anyone. From a speculative search on the Internet, to find someone who is a real tradesman, honest and hard working was a real result. Thanks Alan and his team, great work and I will have you back for the downstairs wet room soon.

Mr S A James. June 2011

Dear Alan, I am emailing you to thank you for the work you have done on my bathroom. You have been highly professional in everything that you have done. Your work is of excellent quality. The whole room has been transformed. I have taken videos of before and after! As I told you earlier, I am looking forward to calling you again in the next 18 months or so for the kitchen. Please let me know if you need the video. I am not sure you can use that. Again, Thank you, and thank Simon for me for all the hard work.

We had a big problem with a leaking shower tray and waste, which was running up hill and we had to use a sink plunger to empty each time the shower was used. Contacted Alan at Apollo Design and although he was very busy, and as we do not have a bath, he arranged to completely redo the shower into a small wet room. Between them they re-made the base, waterproofed and fitted the correct type of waste trap (no longer running up hill!) and tiled the whole area and fitted a one metre wide screen, all within one week! and only took that long because the screen was a couple of days longer than normal to be delivered. Can't thank you enough guys, really super job which my wife and I are really pleased with. Would certainly recommend you to anyone.! Thanks again.

Dear Alan,

We would like to thank you for all the superb conversion and refurbishment of our bathroom. We never imagined such a transformation was possible. The project must have been a huge challenge, especially knocking down that wall. The casing for the central heating boiler fits in so well with the surroundings, and hides the unsightly pipe work and pump.

It was such a pleasure to have you and your team in our house during the last two weeks.

Best wishes to you all

My bathroom was looking very 'tired', the bath and the toilet needed replacing and the shower was practically useless.
I contacted Alan at Apollo design, he arranged to come and discuss our needs and give us a quote for the work that we needed.
What we wanted was a complete new bathroom set at a reasonable price. We took note of Alan's friendly and obviously very knowledgeable advice also his recommendations to look for a standard, rather than a fancy, more expensive, range of fittings.
We expected a standard, clean non exceptional job, that is not what we got! We got a an exceptionally beautiful bathroom, finished to perfection, fully tiled and floored with fittings that were both practical and smart. It was also completed spot on the time specified by Alan. The work ethic was excellent, regular work within proper time periods and minimum disruption to the house.
We cannot praise Alan enough, a brilliant job at an extremely reasonable price. Every one that has visited has commented on the excellent quality of the workmanship.
We are so glad that we listened to his sound advice, it saved us a lot of expense and gave us a lovely bathroom.
We would not hesitate to recommend this kind, considerate and thoroughly competent professional craftsman.

I am very pleased with my wet room, I found Alan to be very professional and punctual. My shower set-up was quite complicated and was completed without any fuss or bother. His pricing is very competitive, Would have no trouble recommending him to my friends, I have asked Alan to give me a quote on my bathroom and Kitchen.

Old bathroom suite removed and new one fitted, walls re tiled and vanity unit fitted.
This firm worked professionally to a very high standard, they went 'the extra mile' to make sure we were happy with the work.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Thanks for the great job with our new bathroom. Hazel and I are extremely pleased with the end result and cannot believe the transformation in such a short space of time. Had we of known how painless the process would be, be would have had you round much earlier!

Great service, value for money and a high quality of workmanship. We could not have asked for more. Thank you to you for your great efforts.

Please see the attached pictures. Before/during/after photos.

Martyn Fulcher June 2008

We were exploring what options were available to us to convert an existing dressing room and wardrobe into an en-suite and had serious doubts about what was achievable in the space available. We contacted a number of potential suppliers/contractors, none of whom gave us sufficient confidence for us to proceed until we spoke to Alan. What a breath of fresh air, he offered ideas (and continued to do so throughout as the project progressed) and suggested options we hadnít even considered. We had been thinking about installing a shower cubicle but Alan suggested a wet room which would actually save money and make the room seem much more spacious. I liked Alans approach, he cares about the result and the customers satisfaction, he reassured us throughout and offered advice on sourcing equipment and supplies as well as turning up on time every day until the work was complete. We were delighted with the results.

See the making of Dave's Wet Room.

We would like to thank you for the great job you did on our bathroom, The half pedestal sink makes the bathroom seem more spacious. The wall tiling is excellent also the laminate flooring looks like real tiles. We would not be afraid to recommend you to other people. We will be in touch with you at a later date about our kitchen floor. Thank you for a very professional job.

June and Dick Clarke July 2007.

Hi there Alan
Sorry its taken so long to let you know just how happy we are with our stunning new bathroom. I would recommend you to anyone for your conscientious attitude to your work. You were professional in every way. You went way beyond the call of duty to help us with suggestions and ideas. We have ended up with the bathroom of our dreams, built to a very high standard of workmanship and at a very affordable price. In this day and age when there are so many cowboys out there ready to rip you off, you have proved to us that there are still Gentlemen tradesmen. Thanks again and please pass our thanks on to Paul. As soon as the last little adjustments are made I will send you the photos I promised. kindest regards

What Albert Chivers has to say.

In recommending you to anyone I would have to say..... " Alan (Apollo Design) was the jack of all trades and master of ALL. In refurbishing my bathroom his skills were plenty evident in the way he tackled the Plumbing, Tiling and Flooring. When overcoming the inevitable builders' problems he always took time and effort to choose the best solution rather than the easiest and quickest. I value his helpful advice in making the numerous choices involved in creating that 'smart' finished look that one sees in the magazines. We were so impressed by the results, and value for money, that we have asked Alan to do a similar dream job on our downstairs cloakroom. I cannot recommend Alan and Apollo more highly."

Thanks again

I am very pleased with my new bathroom from Apollo. The guys did a professional and efficient job fitting the new bathroom suite and power-shower as well as doing a very nice job with the tiling and floor, all at a very competitive price. They took the time to discuss my options on our initial meeting and they certainly delivered when they arrived to carry out the work, all to schedule !. Thanks Apollo !

Thanks again,


Hi Alan,

We would like to thank you for the excellent job you did on transforming our bathroom. We are no longer ashamed when visitors ask to use the bathroom! You did the job to perfection, it looks so clean and fresh just what we dreamed of. We have no doubt recommending you to our family and friends. And we will be coming back to you for our future projects!

Thanks again
