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.

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.

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.


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.

Stunning taps and accessories from Crosswater

There are companies that can claim to have been in the business of making taps and accessories for the bathroom for longer than Crosswater, but few can lay claim to making products that all carry a ten year guarantee. There are 531 products within the Crosswater range and obviously the best way to see these is to look through them at the pages of the Crosswater section at our web site. To give you some idea of one of the taps within their range the Crosswater Water Square Basin Mixer is one example of demonstrating that a basin mixer tap does not just have to be functional, it can be eye catching also and this one certainly is, delivering a river of water mixed to the right temperature to your basin.

Imperial Westminster Diana Basin Stand & Basin

They say that good design never dates and this can be directed toward bathroom products, as we see an ever increasing demand for retro styling in the Edwardian or Victorian products that can be found at our web pages. Imperial manufacture a wide range of retro styled products, with the added advantage that today, modern glazing on the products means that it will not suffer from fine cracks in the surface of the finish. Also taps are 21st century with all the advantages that comes with up to the minute technology, but with the look of yesteryear.

In common with all Imperial products the Westminster Diana Basin and Stand is a beautifully crafted aluminium support stand which is completed with the Westminster Slab Basin. Traditionally this would have been manufactured with two tap holes, but today you can choose to have this with a single tap hole, two tap holes or three holes. To maintain the traditional look of the basin and stand we recommend that you choose a chrome finish bottle trap. A selection of these and taps can be found at our web pages.

A Christmas gift from UK Bathrooms

A gift for the bathroom is one that can be really appreciated by most people as it is often something that we would not normally think about. At UK Bathrooms web pages you will find many gifts at very affordable prices. Look first at the accessories pages and here you will find individual items as well as accessory packs which cover most of the things that are useful.

Take just one of the many examples, the Imperial Istia 5 piece Traditional Bathroom Accessory pack which comprises: Towel rail, double robe hook, tumbler with holder, toilet roll holder and floor standing toilet brush holder with matching brush. All the items are made in a traditional chrome plated finish, stylish with a continental flourish, and the body is made from solid brass construction to prevent rusting at any age, a five year guarantee is offered. This is just one example and single items can be found on the web pages also.

Imperial Antique Crackle Ceramic Dado Tiles

Creating an Edwardian bathroom just became a little easier with the introduction of the Imperial Antique tile range, which will add to the genuine look and feel of your retro Edwardian style room. The tiles are produced in seven tradition colours White Linen, Cream Haze, Ivory Shell, Canvas Wheat, Grey Ecru, Sage Thistle and Blue Nimbus.

Using the latest manufacturing techniques, Imperial has captured the genuine look and feel of a turn of the century tile with their and they are hard to distinguish from a handmade product, even down to their irregular edges. The looks, elegant lustre, along with a crackle finish to the glaze replicates beautifully the look of the early nineteen hundreds. Imperial has achieved a product that is a reflection of an age of elegance and will enhance your bathroom and you will cherish the genuine look of these for many years to come.

Imperial Barrington Double Vanity Unit

The very latest trend in bathroom design today is to have either freestanding countertop basins or increasingly popular is the basin vanity unit. Also gaining in popular taste is the double unit, or a “his and hers” basin set off in retro or like the Imperial Barrington, typical French styling.

This unit is part of the Imperial Barrington Fine Furniture range and is flexible to allow a number of personal options. These include choosing it with a black granite top and matching basins. The wood finishes are Wenge, Walnut or Natural Oak, and the unit features gently curving polished metal handles and feet, with a double door front with central towel shelves. All Imperial’s furniture is hand-crafted in the UK using timeless techniques and selected solid woods and real wood veneers, built to withstand the rigours of normal family life. As with their other products, Imperial’s furniture typifies quality of construction, attention to detail and finish which nowadays is rarely seen.
