Our Heritage

we have been making dream bathrooms a reality for over 50 years


We have been proudly serving West Yorkshire for 50 years and in that time we have designed, supplied and installed thousands of bathrooms and shower rooms.

In 1965 Brian & Kathleen Passmore opened the doors to B&K Passmore Ltd - we were small with big ambitions.

Most recently, In 2017, Passmores continued there success with the acquisition of Charms Bathrooms of Harrogate, a move that sought to save jobs and preserve the 100-year old legacy of the bathroom retail company.


Commenting on the deal, Tony Passmore, said: “Charms is similarly a family-run brand synonymous with trust, quality and integrity, so the fit into our stable of companies was perfect. We look forward to bringing 50 years of installation expertise to the table – especially for some of Charms’ clientele who may have previously used the company for ‘supply only’ bathroom purchases.” you can read more about the acquisition here.

Rewind back to 2015 and we were celebrating our golden anniversary - in 2015 Passmore’s was 50 years old!

Over the past 5 decades we have exceeded our dreams and aspirations, becoming one of the region’s leading full service home improvement companies.

Whilst clearing out some old files recently, we came across this bill for some work we carried out when our company first began in 1965.

The works included a full new bathroom suite, in this case Primrose colour (the height of luxury back then!) for a fee of £111 4s 5d.
