Ocean Bathrooms Established by Robert Mühl

Robert, having worked in the industry since the age of 18, for some of the most prestigious bathroom brands, decided he wanted to set up a showroom for customers in his hometown. Together with his wife Sharon, he started the first independent bathroom showroom at St. Andrews in Bridport. Ocean quickly built up a reputation for supplying top quality branded products and always striving to go above and beyond to help customers with their requirements.

The company was originally set up for retail customers, but because of Robert’s high level of customer service, the business quickly became the preferred supplier by plumbers, builders and professionals. Robert managed Ocean through one of the worst recessions and ended up expanding the business to its current showroom in Bridport (originally the old rope makers on St. Michael’s Trading Estate), a 4,000 square foot space with the same area again for a warehouse.


Ocean opens its first showroom in London

In 2016, Joe Mühl setup Ocean’s London showroom, with a dedicated showroom manager, project managers, installers and a turn-key installation service. Ocean’s London Showroom is situated at the prestigious Business Design Centre in Islington. This is a testament to Ocean’s service. Following over 20 years of outstanding service to customers in Dorset, the South West, London, UK, Europe and the rest of the world, we set up this central hub in the iconic City of London.

Joe has worked in London with developers, architects, designers and other professionals, to put together large projects. He has supplied for, and in some cases, installed for contractors around London, on various prestigious builds.


Ocean opens third showroom, in Poole

Poole, Sandbanks Beach

In 2020, Joe Mühl established a new showroom located in Poole, near Sandbanks. True to the Ocean Bathrooms ethos, the showroom offers a dedicated installation team covering Poole, Bournemouth, Wimborne and surrounding areas. Like our other showrooms, a complete design and installation package solution is available, with optional full project management and access to the Ocean Bathrooms App.

Ocean’s success is down to the business regimentally adhering to the following practices:

We only use brands that we know are of good quality and offer the best warranty and after sales, through decades of working in the industry,

We use the best cutting-edge technologies for bathroom design and quoting,

We provide a high standard of training for all our staff members,

Ocean is still owned by Robert and the Mühl Family, ensuring that we offer a high level of service from design, specification, supply, installation and after sales.

Who we are

At Ocean, the Mühl family still independently run the business. Robert oversees Ocean as the Managing Director and focuses on the general running of both showrooms. He is highly involved in the marketing of Ocean and still involved on a day-to-day basis.

Sharon is the Finance Director and oversees the accounting side of the business for suppliers. Joe, Robert and Sharon’s eldest son, is regarded as one of the best designers in the bathroom industry. He has featured in press releases, magazines and TV for various projects he has designed or worked upon. His main role was to head up both showrooms on the sales and design side, but he now focuses on large contracts, projects, hotels and spas, as the Managing Director of Contracts. Joe splits his time between London and Dorset.

Alex, Robert & Sharon’s younger son, looks after the operations and logistics as the Operations Director. He also takes care of customer accounts and heads up the customer service and after sales team.
