We aim for customer satisfaction and a testimonial from every customer, and this keeps my attention to detail from dropping.
Please see genuine testimonials below from people in Leeds who have benefitted from choosing UK Bathroom Guru to carry out their work (contact details for a select few can be given if requested).
P.S. Some testimonials refer to my business as Blend Renovations as this was my trading name before I started specialising in bathrooms, though the personnel are largely the same.
“A brilliant job. Wonderful end product. All your team were wonderful, but Eugene must get a special mention for all his hard work and solving many difficult problems.”
—Dave & Kathy, Roundhay
“I was delighted with my new bathroom. The Blend team provided a professional service and are committed to producing excellent results.
Chris Martel has done numerous work in my home; fitting a brand new bathroom and replacing work surfaces/ tiling in the kitchen.
Chris takes full control of the project; sourcing the products, organising the contractors and carrying out the work himself.
I am very pleased with the speed, price and standard of work and totally recommend Chris.”
“The work you carried out on my bathroom is excellent and I am very happy with it. I cannot fault your professionalism, friendliness and attention to detail. I have already recommended you to my friends and I know that they have also been very satisfied with the work you carried out too. Thank you again!”
“Chris and his team did an excellent job on installing my new shower room, offering a turn-key implementaion. It’s the attention to detail and fine finishing that make’s chris & his team stand-out from the average tradesman.”
“Chris worked with me to supply & install a bathroom when I bought a new house in June 2009. He advised me of the price and the process in advance and highlighted the potential unknown extras in advance, which made me more confident.
Chris’ attention to detail was great, and the little things really added up to a great bathroom.
It was also useful for me not to have to source all the various trades involved independently so I didn’t need to worry about being let down or the schedule being adversely affected.
I would strongly recommend Chris to anyone wishing to install a new bathroom.”

“Blend renovations carried out some work for me over the summer and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to outsource the project management of their renovation project. I live 150 miles away from the house I rented out and needed someone reliable to mange the repair. Chris turned up when he said he would, provided prompt and fair quotes for the work and carried out all the work to a very high standard. I would highly recommend him and his company.”
“We have had a very good relationship with Chris and his company in recent times. Over the last 2 to 3 years we have used them three times.”
Job 1: “Renew the kitchen and bathroom in a 1930’s 1 bedroom flat in the centre of London off Tottenham Court Road.”
“Chris and his plumber purchased all the materials in the North of England and then went and drove to London where they stayed at the flat till the job was done. The planning and execution of this project was first class and resulted in a first class job being done. Communications between Chris and me the client were on going throughout the renovation.”
Job 2: “Retile the downstairs toilet in our house in North Leeds.”
“An excellent job that so impressed another tradesman on site that Chris gained another job whilst he was here.”
Job 3: “Retile the en suite bathroom adjacent to the master bedroom.”
“Another great result which could not be faulted. Chris and his staff are very clean workers and tidied up every night before they left to go home.
I would not hesitate in recommending Chris and his company to anyone who wants a first class job doing at affordable prices.”

“Chris Martell installed a new bathroom for me last year and I have nothing but praise for him and his team.
They sorted out problems with no fuss, arrived on time and finished a good job on time and within budget.”
—R.M.C. Burley in Wharfedale
“I was really impressed with the level of service offered – the finalising of my design ideas, sourcing quality materials within my budget and going to great lengths to achieve the finish I wanted. After years of dealing with dubious tradespeople, it was a real pleasure to find a company that prides itself on being better.
or summat.. I’ll happily put my name to your work because I do
genuinely believe that you are good. I also really like the
punctuality. Hope it all goes well.”
—Christine – Bathroom installation, Chapeltown, Leeds
“After moving house many times in the course of the last few years and having experienced many different builders it was a pleasure to experience Chris Martell’s BR.
The schedule of works was stuck to, BR were onsite when they said they would be onsite.
They were clean, tidy and efficient and the bathrooms were professionally finished.”
—Matthew Keller, Roundhay, Leeds
“I stumbled across Blend Bathrooms in the local ad mag , Chris came around to discuss what we wanted and gave options and ways to keep our costs down which was great . Chris’s team are really professional and great guys, mess was at a minimum and they really worked !! I had wall knocked through, boiler fit and bathroom installed and decorated in under 2 wks.
I would totally recommend Blend as a company and already have to many of my own clients the standard of work is fantastic and with Chris managing the project from start to finish i felt the job went by without any problems.”
—Sarah Dean – Corossgates, Leeds
“Chris and his team recently worked on our bathroom and we’re delighted with the results. In less than a week they’d stripped out the old, leaking shower, the toilet and the basin and replaced them with lovely new ones. Combine that with re-plastering water-damaged walls, re-fixing floorboards, re-tiling the shower area and replacing the bathroom carpet and it’s like a miracle: our tired old bathroom has a new lease of life. Chris’ project management was fantastic: I described what I wanted and he made it happen. He was also happy to offer expert advice on solutions to problems that came up since, as with many jobs, our bathroom proved less than straightforward. But all the challenges were dealt with, and dealt with properly rather than botched. Chris and his team were pleasant at all times and did their best to minimise disruption. They were also very patient with my younger son and his endless questions! Before work started Chris provided me with a detailed estimate of the cost and any additions to that cost were explained as work went on so there were no nasty surprises. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Blend Bathrooms to anyone.”
—Ellie – Roundhay, Leeds
“I was delighted with my new bathroom. The Blend team provided a professional service and are committed to producing excellent results.”
—Jonathon – Yeadon
“It has been a real pleasure to have Chris and his team on various projects in our home. From the start Chris was very helpful with ideas and possible solutions to various questions and requests. During the project Chris and his team were reliable, flexible, and had a real eye for detail on the work that they did. As the work went on we have asked Chris to help is with a variety of different projects, and his work has been commended by everyone who has seen it, including the other trades people working on site. There is no doubt that we will use Chris again in the future.”
—Ben and Sarah – Roundhay
“Chris and his team renovated and modernised both my kitchen and bathroom in 10 days, they all worked hard and in a professional manner. Chris was very helpful in the design process and tried his best to do what I wanted.
For some time there was a lot of mess and inconvenience, but at the end of the job I am very pleased with the results.
Chris kept his team motivated and was very precise with his work.
I was also pleased with the estimates and the actual cost of the finished jobs.”
—Jean Hardman – Roundhay
