Contemporary bathroom design with Villeroy & Boch

With over 260 years of inventiveness and foresight Villeroy & Boch have produced a diversified range of products in both the Tableware and Bathroom and Wellness divisions. Villeroy and Boch are at the forefront of design and technology and a range of their products can be found at the web pages of premier bathroom supplier UK Bathrooms. The company over the years has developed an enviable range of high quality ceramic products including the renowned single source bathroom. We illustrate here our suggestions for designing a beautiful contemporary bathroom using these contemporary products.

Let us begin with the bathtub and we choose the Villeroy & Boch Oberon Oval Bath which is guaranteed to ensure a comfortable soak. Offered by us in five different sizes ranging from 1600mm by 750mm, up to1900mm by 900mm, the last of these has the option of being double ended. All of the baths are available with feet, adjustable from 145mm to 180mm. We can also offer this as a whirlpool, contact us and we will be delighted to give further information about this additional upgrade.

Villeroy & Boch Oberon Oval Bath

For the all-important WC we suggest that the Subway Wall Mounted Toilet Pan will fit the bill perfectly. By opting for a wall-mounted design approach you have not only space saving but a distinct illusion of the pan being suspended in mid-air! There are a number of options on offer with this WC, for example mounting frames of different sizes and fitted seats as required. Choose from a fitted standard seat, or a soft-close option for that final touch of quiet comfort.

Villeroy & Boch Subway Wall Mounted Toilet Pan

Continuing with the theme of wall hung units we recommend the O.Novo Curved Washbasin, this basin will provides a genuine touch of quality and displays a clean aesthetic in keeping with contemporary trends. Supplied in White Alpin as standard, this basin can be upgraded with the unique CeramicPlus treatment, scientifically demonstrated to repel staining to keep its gleam for longer.

You would not want your bathroom to be without a mirror and the V&B More to See One Mirror fits design of the bathroom perfectly. Taking a bold, contemporary form, the More to See Mirror has a definite cosmopolitan look and feel, perfect for our contemporary bathroom. This mirror is frameless and adds a sense of depth and space to the bathroom. Complete with an LED lighting strip, this gives the right amount of lighting for personal grooming as well as adding a strong sense of ambience to the area.

Villeroy & Boch More to See One Mirror

Although we are designing our bathroom around contemporary looking products, we felt that a shower head which looks like the V&B Cult 220mm Shower Head will fit into any bathroom; it delivers a flow rate of 12 litres per minute, this in either in chrome as standard, or with a matt white finish as a special order, presents a crisp and professional finish.

Villeroy and Boch Cult Shower Head

No bathrooms whether contemporary or traditional is complete without storage space and we have chosen the Central Line Tall Cabinet. This modern unit is wall mounted and features 2 doors, 2 drawers and 3 shelves, with the body and doors available in white, black, walnut or Macassar decor colours.

Get the traditional bathroom of your dreams with Burlington

To just say that retro or early 20th century lookalike bathroom products are popular would be an understatement of massive proportions; they have taken off like few others. Masters of this look are Burlington that has a collection that we are delighted to illustrate on our web pages. Getting a traditional bathroom look is straight forward and the first item to consider would be the bath.

The slipper bath was all the rage in the early days and this Burlington Harewood slipper bath is distinctive. With a wide range of feet for this bath you can create the look that suits you, classical, period or traditional, and each come in chrome, white or black. With a wide range of free standing or deck mounted taps, so you have a large amount of design flexibility, and the tap or overflow can be drilled to suit your particular desire.

The Burlington Regal Slimline Close Coupled Toilet Suite with Push Button may look as though it came straight from the Edwardian era, but that is where the similarity ends, using modern manufacturing methods and 21st century technology, , Burlington achieves a high level of quality and authenticity in this and every product. With eco water saving dual flush the WC is complete with pan, cistern with push button and soft closing seat

The Burlington Regal Edwardian Medium Round Basin and Washstand is a true classic and with the pairing of wall mounted basin with complementing chrome legs and towel rail, you will have a vintage touch to your bathroom. The basin can be provided with holes pre drilled to accommodate either traditional separate hot and cold taps, or with a more contemporary mono mixer if required. Again this is a 21st century wash basin with an Edwardian look that is sure to grace a traditional bathroom.

With the slipper bath as well as the wash basin we have left the choice of which taps to use as a personal choice, we have a huge selection of these at our dedicated section of taps and mixers. One which would fit the slipper bath to perfection would be the Burlington Claremont Regent Deck Mounted Bath Filler. This is a true classic and again benefits from modern technology. We offer a choice of either a quarter turn or screw down for the taps and a flow straightener for low pressure systems and aerator for high pressure.

With the Burlington range of bathroom products, you are only a few clicks away from creating a fine traditional bathroom.

Creating the perfect bathroom on a budget

It is always sensible to work to a budget, companies as well as governments’ do all the time or at least they should do! If your budget is a small one, then there is no reason why you still cannot have a classy bathroom and we illustrate a number of bathroom products that will help you to achieve this.

The Vitra Milton Close Coupled WC is a perfect example of installing a close coupled unit that has continental styling and it is one that will keep you well inside your budget. Vitra have produced a ceramic white and compact unit that is an example of the efficient use of space within the bathroom. The design of the WC means that it requires less water to flush than we see in conventional toilets, saving precious water and this also means that your metered water bill will be smaller. The flush button is conveniently placed on top of the cistern for ease of access.

A clever way to combine a shower as well as a bath is through the GRP reinforced Lucite acrylic Essential P shower bath, which has a curved end to allow plenty of movement in the bath whilst taking a shower. The bath is available in either left or right handed versions according to where you have the bath situated. We also provide a matching curved shower bath screen with a chrome towel rail fitted to this, also included is the front and end panel; Essential P means it is perfect for bathing and showering.

The Ideal Standard Alto Basin is offered in three widths, 500(w) x 435(d)mm 550(w) x 450(d)mm and 600(w) x 490(d)mm.

No bathroom budget or at the luxury end would be complete without a mirror and we believe that an illuminated mirror will not only make personal grooming easier, but it can also provide subtle lighting to the bathroom. There are a number of mirrors in the Roper Rhodes Clarity backlit collection and de-mister pads can be included on some models. The one we have suggested here is the Roper Rhodes Clarity Apollo Backlit Mirror which has brilliant illumination and a clean and crisp shape, which will complete your budget bathroom in style, which due to our unbeatable prices costs under £600.00.

Hansgrohe Axor Starck V tap – innovation in movement!

We are really excited about the very latest tap that is in our showroom and we wanted to share this with you as soon as we could. Philippe Starck has excelled himself with this design of tap which he himself describes as “a revolution, the essence of minimalism a vortex, this wonder of nature, surrounded by complete transparency,”

The Axor starck V Spout tap has a glass body with an open ended spout which when operating allows us to see the water forming a vortex so fascinating that many will, we feel sure, just want to see it operate and almost forget why they have turned on the tap in the first place! The glass body and open-ended spout make it possible for us to experience water a completely natural element at home.

Axor Starck V

Hansgrohe are the manufacturers of this latest masterpiece and are renowned for their technological design and for bringing some stunning designs to the bathroom, the AxorV is just the latest. The spay researchers at Hansgrohe have been working in conjunction with Philippe Stack to try to bring us a way in which we could see the vortex in operation and they have succeeded with this glass bodied product.

However, what has not to be lost it that the tap has to be both functional and made easy to keep clean, they have achieved this with their easy click-in design and safety-stop function make it really easy to remove the glass body from its base to clean it, even without having to close the valve. Naturally the selected crystal glass has also been very carefully chosen and is dirt resistant and can be cleaned in the family dishwasher.

A number of finishes is offered for this revolutionary tap, chrome and high-gloss white variant, together with 12 other exclusive finishes, such as brushed nickel for the base and a sandblasted crystal glass variant for the body.

Shower heads that are made to impress!

A shower head is a functional device that is seen on every shower, but it can be very striking too, so why not take a look at these fantastic shower heads that were made to impress.

We illustrate just three of these and for a shower head that will get your family and friends talking, the Pegler Star fixed shower head & arm is guaranteed to do that. This chrome head is modernist in design, but above all it is very functional as well as being contemporary. The shower head offers the user four different choices of spray pattern; this multi-mode shower head produces a gentle stream or a torrent of refreshing water, all dependent upon the preference of the user.

Another modern looking shower head but with a difference is the Hansgrohe Raindance Rainfall 180 Air 2jet Overhead Shower. Whilst this shower head is guaranteed to make an impression to all who see it, above it is the two different spray settings that will impress the user. The Flood Jet gives a wide, generous spray to ensure a relaxing soak, while the gentle blend of air and water of the RainAir gives a more relaxing, mist-like experience. A water pressure of 2 bars is necessary to enable the system to work and the head is offered in either white or chrome finish.

Hansgrohe Raindance Rainfall 180

The third of our choices is the Grohe Rain Shower F-Series Celling Shower and is designed to give the user a customised shower experience. It has been cleverly designed to be almost invisible and because it uses GROHE’s brilliant DreamSpray technology, this distributes the spray evenly and efficiently across the nozzle, and is very easy for the user to adjust for perfect flow rate. What is important in any shower head is the ease of cleaning and the GROHE is designed for that, add to that the SpeedClean system, this will ensure that her is no build-up of timescale.

It’s April so let’s focus on April Baths

A privately owned British business based in Keighley Yorkshire, the reputation of April Products has been built on more than two decades of experience in the bathroom sector. In this time, April have been designing and producing exciting bathtubs and the freestanding baths can only be described as one effortless mixture of quality and value. With the delightful range of both Victorian retro styling and stunning modern cutting edge double ended and deep baths, we are sure that these will both catch the eye as well as delight the users. Illustrated below are just three of the wide range that can be seen at the April pages of our website.

The Skipton Double Ended Victorian Style Bath is a perfect example of a traditional double-ended, free-standing bath. We imagine that this bathtub would be perfect as a centre stage of a modern bathroom. The cut away mid-section allows for the fitting of deck mounted fillers or a mixer. The bath is generous in size and with the inner curves, the users is guaranteed support for a relaxing long soak. With a range of April bath feet, the bathtub is sure to have grace and style. Although we are showing this with waste and fillers, this is for illustration purposes only and not included in our price.

For a stunning example of a thoroughly modern but very functional bathtub, the April Brearton Modern Freestanding Bath is a fine example of Art Deco design. This bath has a shape that is described as being classic oval with a sheer vertical outer panel, definitely designed to take the limelight in a modern contemporary bathroom setting. The exterior does not suggest that this bath is perfectly designed to offer the user true comfort as well as the obvious striking aesthetics. Choose from two lengths, 1500mm or 1700mm respectively, again although the waste is included, the filler is for illustration purposes only.

The designers of the Airton free standing bath with its bold shape just demonstrates how they are able to present a highly fashionable luxury bathing unit in a highly contemporary style.

If you like the modern and challenging style, then the Airton is just what you may be looking for. This bath requires a standalone filler, which can be ordered separately but a dedicated waste system comes as standard without extra charges.

Going green with water saving toilets

Water is a very precious resource, some parts of our country suffer from a water shortage in the summer months, which may surprise many as it seems to rain so often. With this in mind and to quote a saying by the Duke of Edinburgh, it is nonsense to use a gallon of water to flush down a pint of urine!

The first of the three toilets we feature is the Vitra Serenada Closed Coupled WC Suite with Soft Close Seat, we include in our unbeatable price the toilet pan itself together with the cistern, toilet seat & cover. The cistern is a top flush and has the dual function and the design has a low key country style, but this has been cleverly adapted to reflect today’s contemporary lifestyle.

Vitra Serenada Closed Coupled WC Suite with Soft Close Seat

International bathroom designers and manufacturers Ideal Standard have a stylish toilet which we feature, this is the Concept Cube Close Coupled WC Suite and it includes 4/2.6 litre water saving dual flush cistern and choice of seats. Space saving was in the mind of the clever design team headed by Robin Levien, a Royal Designer for Industry, so we can guarantee that style is not lacking. The package comprises the pan, dual flush cistern, and a soft close seat cover, and is finished in vitreous china, incidentally guaranteed for a lifetime, white to match any décor. This pretty WC suite is highly efficient with a push button with dual action for either a 4 or a 2.6 litres of water each time.

Finally we look at the Roca Senso Compact ECO Close Coupled Suite and this suite is perfect for those who may have limited space, the Senso makes maximum use of space and Suite has been specially designed to fit into almost any bathroom, no matter how small. The package includes pan, cistern and standard closing toilet seat with cover, but we can also supply this with a soft close seat which can be found in the drop down selection at our web page. With a dual flush of either a miserly 4.5 or 3 litre flush, the Roca is a green solution for your bathroom, this stunning toilet with its soft square styling is particularly practical for compact bathrooms.
