About Dean Taylor Bathrooms

Dean Taylor Bathrooms was established in 2017 by Dean and Izzy and since then we have installed, refurbed, tweaked and adapted hundreds, if not thousands of bathrooms in homes, businesses, community buildings and more, across the South Lakes.

We believe everyone deserves the best possible bathroom and we love the amazing transformation that a new bathroom can bring. Our company ethos is that we aim to give all clients the service and experience that we would want our own grandparents to receive.



Dean has appeared on numerous TV Programmes including BBC’s ‘Great Interior Design Challenge’, Channel 4’s ‘Selling House with Amanda Lamb’ and Channel 5’s ‘Cowboy Builders’ – as a builder but not as a cowboy!

After a long career in construction Dean built a successful property services business before specialising in bathrooms. As a trained plumber, bathrooms were a regular request over the years and he has seen many styles come and go.

His background in wider aspects of building plus his creativity means Dean can often spot possibilities that others may miss. We are also able to offer a more all-round service where elements of wider building work may be required.



Izzy spent almost two decades working first as a journalist then as a television producer and director, working on programmes including many property shows, from ‘Selling Houses with Amanda Lamb’ to the hit USA lifestyle and property show ‘Househunters International’.

After years of regular travelling she joined Dean in business in 2015. She shares Dean’s passion for helping people get the best bathroom possible and loves living in, working in and being a part of our local community.

She loves the opportunity to make every bathroom project as creative and individual as possible.

Dean and Izzy are joined by a talented team who all share the same vision – to deliver stunning, quality bathrooms, wetrooms, shower rooms etc at the best value, ensuring our customers get the best possible experience.

Like Dean, Connor enjoys a good challenge!
