Ruth Appleby established Little Ripley Nurseries in 1988, she now owns 10 Little Ripley nurseries based all over Sutton Coldfield.

In 2013, Ruth bought a large house in a rural location in the town with a vision to renovate the entire property, ‘This is now my tenth nursery. We have permission for 60 children from 6 weeks to 5 years old, so I required good quality, long lasting, clean looking facilities for our children.’

Each element of the nursery has undergone months of planning and has been designed down the finest element, the nursery school washrooms were no different, ‘I was looking to install toilet facilities with the wow factor. When I discovered the Bushboard Tiny Stuff range of nursery school washrooms and sanitaryware I was immediately won over by the bright fun patterns and sturdy looking cubicles.’

Featuring anti-finger trap hinges, robust wall channels and pilaster fixing down to the floor, Bushboard’s Tiny Stuff nursery toilet cubicle range was designed specifically for nursery school children. Ruth chose Bushboard’s exclusive Colour Creations laminate print for the doors and Chilli red for pilasters and panels.

The semi-recessed vanity unit with an adjoining baby change area was chosen in Chilli with Colour Creations panels to match the cubicles.

Ruth chose Bushboard ready plumbed modules for the nursery, meaning the WCs, basins and taps were all pre-plumbed in the factory before arriving at the nursery – adding to the quality and strength of the product. Ruth chose Bushboard’s exclusive sanitaryware range, SanCeram for Little Ripley, ‘The SanCeram sanitary ware is very stylish with beautiful curved lines.’

Ruth is thrilled with the new washroom areas and has already received great feedback, ‘We recently had an open day and our new parents were very impressed by the whole look of the toilet area.’

Ruth was so impressed with Bushboard she has already ordered more, ‘Since converting this property to a nursery I have now refurbished one of my other nurseries with the same toilet cubicles and sanitaryware.

‘I will continue to use Bushboard for any further conversions or refurbishments.’
