UK Bathroom Top 5 Deals in the sale

Why not take a look at some of the offers we have picked out of the sale we believe are great value:

 

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 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!).

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 innovations so that for the price, the quality will not be surpassed.

New features

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:

Image result for villeroy and boch soho furniture

The new Soho 2 unit has two large distinguished drawers, both with soft close mechanisms on them. This offers perfect storage for any of your typical bathroom products. The larger drawer at the bottom can more than handle large bottles:

The new furniture options come in updated finishes, you will always have a white gloss finish (it’s timeless and matches all any tiles). You have now got the option of:

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.

Designer Brassware: envisioned by Kelly Hoppen, created by Crosswater.

Kelly Hoppen is a renowned name in the interior Design world, and now increasingly so in the consciousness of the general public, with Kelly’s appearances on popular programs such as Dragons Den, and interior Design series ‘Superior Interiors’. Creating chic, sleek interiors Kelly Hoppen’s designs are timelessly elegant and her style is highly coveted. Key notes are upscaled decorative accessories (think large scale vases and lamps), which create a sense of space and luxury, combined with a more paired back colour pallet and luxurious materials and surfaces.

Kelly Hoppen MBE

Kelly Hoppen MBE

In 2013 Crosswater, one of the UK’s most popular brassware brand names and Kelly Hoppen teamed up to produce a range of fashionably stylised and lustrous coordinating mixer taps, showers and mixers.

The first range was dubbed: KH Zero 1. These products were welcomed into the market with continued success and interest. The popularity of these has seen a further 5 ranges launched.

Zero 2 text

The current Design groups are: KH Zero 1, KH Zero 2, KH Zero 3, KH Zero 5, KH Zero 6

KH ZERO 1KH Zero 1.

This design range fuses together squared edge, ample-feeling tap bodies with slimmer curved spout designs that feature very sculptural negative spaces. The matching shower valve plates combine the same mix of squared back face plates, with round handle blocks and slim, curved levers. The handles add a lovely functional element, with comfortable smooth action technology and premium quality you would expect from Crosswater.

KH ZERO 2

KH Zero 2.

The Zero 2 range features rounded solid tap bodies with elongated, sophisticated thin lever handles, following the form of the spout. Modern and chic, these pivot on a smooth joint to control both temperature and flow in one action. The cleverly designed, slim handles are the main showpiece feature of these taps. Coordinating bath and basin versions with minimal ceramicware would create a softly serene, sophisticated bathroom space with a spa feel.

KH03

KH Zero 3.

Zero 3 has a well designed, thin handle on a pivot similar in fashion to the Zero 2, but with a completely different overall aesthetic. Boldly geometric, with crisp 90 degree angles and squared off corners the Zero 3 evokes a more architectural taste with strong, straight lines and corners.

You could pair these with black basins, polished concrete floors, geometric tiles, and a bespoke smoked glass wetroom screen for a look right out of the most exclusive interior design magazine of the moment.

KH05KH Zero 5.

Next is Zero 5, with a completely different feel again. This is a single kitchen tap, with a subtlety traditional design, featuring decorative fluted nozzle and base detail. Combine this kitchen mixer with a Belfast Sink for a beautiful timeless look.

KH Zero 6.

Last but not least is Zero 6, an edgier range with a nice contemporary twist. The forward angled tap bodies add a sense of movement and energy. The slim handles are light and smoothly operated adding to the overall dynamic, a pleasure to operate.

 

kh zero 6 collection

Overall you have a great choice on offer here, with varying designs that can be incorporated into a wide range of interior design plans for all kind of bathroom spaces.

How to choose the perfect bespoke shower

 

Here in the United Kingdom we frequently have quite characterful properties with a history to them, and rather than a completely new blank space you will often have the odd low ceiling to contend with, (loft conversions) or an uneven wall to account for when renovating a bathroom space something like a giant game of Tetris!

Matki bespoke

These odd shapes and uneven spaces can be worked with rather than presenting a hindrance, through opting for a bespoke Shower design. A bespoke shower enclosure offers you a solution tailored to your needs. Of course a bespoke shower options are not just for bathroom renovation projects, you might be planning a new build where you need a shower door where off the shelf solutions won’t work, for example a steam room or frosted shower doors. Most of the manufacturers we work with offer solutions that adjust the height and width, and some can even create various special sections to suit a certain shaped area for example an angled cut to suit a celling. This is actually a much smoother process than you would think, in most cases we can work with you and the manufacturer to agree on a no-obligation design in advance.

A step up from this, Matki actually have a specially dedicated Bespoke team who will work with you on your project. They offer a “Measure & Fit” service where their engineers conduct a site visit, coming out to your property and measuring up with professional precision, and once the enclosure is manufactured they visit again to fit the goods. This ensures the perfect fit!

Matki Bespoke

In terms of shape and cut, some of the solutions Matki offer are:

Ultra-Bespoke-Matki-004Dwarf Walls

These can be used to create really interesting areas, for example to create a spa like wet room or steam room. Tiled seating sections or a shower chaise lounge can be created, with a dwarf height inline panels that meet a full height door.

matki_eauzone_attic_space-004

Angled Cuts

Angled cuts offer the perfect solution for a bathroom loft conversion or slanted roof. Cutting across the glass at an angle creates a made to measure pentagon screen.

 

Other options with bespoke design include specification of colour finish and material, even shower door handle style and personalised glass etching. This is where things get really interesting, and you can create something truly unique to your home and your taste.

Their standard finish is a polished silver, but Matki now offer various bespoke finishes to frames, hinges and handles including: Brushed or Polished Gold, Brushed or Polished Nickel. The Matki One range has the following colour options: Architectural Bronze, Silver, Black Anodised, White Coated.

Matki Bespoke Hinges

Matki One Bronze

Metal disc handle details can be added in: Chrome as standard but also Copper, Brass, Green, Red, Blue, Black or White. We particularly like the polished nickel for a more traditional look, or the architectural bronze for a contemporary edge. In addition to colour customisation, the handle design can also be specified from a range of options.

Matki Handles

The handle choice can really change the entire look of the enclosure, for example choosing the traditional handle design and a soft polished nickel finish would compliment Matki’s Swalding classical brassware beautifully as demonstrated in the inspirational image below in a traditional room setting with plush furniture and complimentary neo-baroque framed mirror.

EauZone Plus Nickel

As of 2016, new to the EauZone Plus range is Matki’s soft brushed gold finish, which we think works beautifully:

Matki EauZone Plus Gold
