Introducing the SoHo 2 range from Villeroy and Boch

Villeroy & Boch have long been the biggest name associated with bathrooms. V&B are renowned for their great design and world class engineering. As part of their already expansive collection, Villeroy and Boch have refreshed and reintroduced their SoHo collection, with the new SoHo 2.

Subway or SoHo?

We are asked all the time; “is that just Subway?”, “Why do some people still call it Subway?” or “How come it’s not on the Villeroy & Boch website?”. Ok, this bit is a little complicated, originally the SoHo collection was part of a range called Subway, but with the introduction of the newer Subway 2 range the collection was renamed SoHo. So there were two collections called Subway and there sort of still is, some people still call it Subway and some people call it SoHo to differentiate it. The SoHo collection as it was had been around for a few years, so when the new products have been introduced they were named: SoHo 2 (are you still with us here, someone thought that this made sense!). The Subway bathroom collection has dominated bathroom sales for the past decade; it’s the flagship range you think of when you think of Villeroy & Boch. It’s not the cheapest Villeroy & Boch range, but it is far from their most expensive. Now it’s called SoHo 2 the designers have gone back to the drawing board and re-engineered the furniture in the range; they have updated the finishes and used their most recent design

The main differences in the new units are the drawers. The original Subway/Soho unit had one large draw and sub-divided draws within the unit:

Everyone at the UKB office has had a look at the new units; we think they are great and would easily recommend them to any of our customers. If you are looking to refresh your bathroom and are unsure where to start; Villeroy and Boch is a name you can be confident in, and the SoHo 2 is a range that will suit almost any bathroom layout.

Bathroom Furniture designed to make a statement

Getting the right furniture for your bathroom is an essential part of a bathroom makeover, whether you are just planning adding some extra items, or you are renewing the room from scratch, getting the bathroom furniture right will make a huge difference.

We have a dedicated section at our new and easy to navigate web pages. It is here that you will be able to locate furniture that will suit every style of bathroom you want to create. Naturally you will want good storage and at the web pages you will find a range of wall fixing cabinets, with illuminated mirrors if you need one; the HIB Orlando is just one of the very many examples on display.

HIB Orlando LED Illuminated Cabinet

We can offer corner fitted cabinets, cabinets that are semi recessed into the wall or traditionally above the sink. If you are undertaking a complete makeover, perhaps one of the new and exciting wash stations or wash stands as they are often referred to would certainly make a statement. The Imperial Cuda Open Vessel Bowl Unit is one item, or perhaps a vanity unit with built in sink such as the Bauhaus Design White 70 Wall Hung Two Door Unit & Basin which will give you storage space beneath the basin.

So whether you just want something to store your toothbrushes neatly, or a complete new bathroom, you will find it at our web site at prices that will not be beaten anywhere.

Bisque Serenity Extractor Fan

A fan in a bathroom shower or cloakroom does not have to look like a fan it can be sleek with a finish that fits snugly to the ceiling of your room and to the casual observer, they would not even notice it and if they did would look with admiring glances. We are all aware of extractor fans which are noisy and again you do not have to have one that drowns out your thoughts or can be heard two or three rooms away. Fitting a Bisque Serenity extractor fan will give you a highly efficient extractor which looks good and is offered in a brushed or mirrored finish and is 80% quieter than a standard fan we are all perhaps used to. The Serenity can be used as a wall fan or a ceiling fitting whichever is your choice, the extractor efficiency can be set at either 5 or 10 litres per second depending on the location and size of room, or preference. There is a boost flow rate of 15 l/s and the consumption is a meagre 1.8 watts on standard setting, the noise level a whisper quiet 14 dba. Serenity will give your bathroom true tranquillity.

Ideal Standard Space 300mm Storage Unit

There is an art to designing units which do not take up vital bathroom space, but at the same time giving you, the user, space into which you can store all those things necessary to make bathing pleasant and comfortable. Now Ideal Standard has managed that with their Space bathroom units which can be fitted in almost any bathroom, opening up small spaces to a whole new world of high-quality design. Whether you are planning a new bathroom or modernising an existing one, Space furniture can make a real difference: storage problems are solved and unsightly plumbing is completely concealed. The end result is clean, modern and stylish.

The doors to these units can be supplied in a choice of maple, gloss white, shaker maple or shaker white. Countertops are available in granite, mahogany, maple, gloss white or matt white finishes, in lengths of 180cm, 120cm and 60cm which can be cut to fit on site.
