Bathroom firm opens showroom
Boscolo boss has big plans for smallest room
Ronnie Scott, founder of Edinburgh-based Boscolo Bathrooms, has opened a £75,000 showroom in the Stockbridge area to meet growing demand.
Mr Scott’s ambition is to double the firm’s revenue.
He said: “When I started Boscolo in 2008 we were only months old when we found ourselves in the worst recession in history. Even among people who were not suffering financially, there was a reluctance to be seen spending money on home improvements that might have been considered as ‘showy’.
“Those were extremely tough times and we fought hard to come through it by delivering outstanding service and attention to detail no matter how tight the margins were.
“It’s satisfying that we are seeing that dedication paying off and we are now in a very good place. People have the money and the confidence to invest on home improvements. Fortunately for us new bathrooms are often at the top of their priority list.”
Boscolo’s original Causewayside showroom is firmly established in Edinburgh’s south side where it has most of its custom. He hopes to gain similar popularity in the north of the city.
“We’d like to establish more of a foothold to the north of Princes Street. With our new showroom open we are already seeing interest from the New Town, Stockbridge, Inverleith, Barnton, Ravelston, Murrayfield and Trinity.”
The showroom adds to a growing collection of interior designer businesses – Jeffreys Interiors and Ian Smith Design – while Farrow & Ball’s showroom is also a neighbour.
