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.

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.

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.

Grand Designs – Japanese Home Shower Room

So this week’s house, in East Devon was not completed by the end of the show. Which means there wasn’t a bathroom to be seen. So instead we are looking again at the Japanese house, a home which was aired two weeks ago. We have featured the bathroom, however the Japanese shower room is also worth looking at. Not often you get two completed bathrooms in one episode. Cleanliness is important in Japanese culture, the showers and baths are designed to not only clean your body but also your mind and spirit. Taking a Japanese “onsen,” or bath is part of many Japanese people’s daily ritual, helping unwind and relax away from everyday life. Before taking a bath however it is important to shower beforehand as per correct etiquette. You wash your body with soap beforehand, traditionally whilst sitting on small stools. You then rinse yourself off with a handheld shower. Temperature of the water is pretty hot, warmer than what is used in the average UK bathroom. The heat is to allow deep penetration and allow for relaxation of your muscles. There is also a small bowl supplied which you can use to pour water over yourself. After cleaning yourself completely, you are then able to sit in the hot and steamy Japanese bathtub. You can see more of the items used in the episode on our Grand Designs page, including the wonderful gold towel rails from Mere Ramillies and Aestus Crosshead Radiator Valves. We also have a selection of showerheads similar to what was used in the episode, so you can find something to suit your needs.

Villeroy & Boch Augmented Reality App

To accompany the release of Villeroy & Boch’s brand new bathroom range called Joyce, the premier bathroom manufacturer has created an augmented reality app so that you can experience the products in your own home in full interactive 3D.

Embracing the new technology we decided to give it a try and write an in-depth review of the app. The V&B Joyce Augmented App is available on both the AppStore and Google Play, and for this review we will be trying the app out on the iPad Mini.

Downloading the app is easy, simply search for V&B Augmented App and click install; the app will download and be ready to use. Next you will have to print out the AR marker from here on the Villeroy & Boch website and attach it to any wall with blue tack or tape.

Once the A marker is in place open the app and aim the devices camera at the marker, it takes a couple of seconds to recognise the marker then it displays a 3D bathroom product right on the screen.

You can choose which bathroom product to display from the Joyce range including 6 sinks, 6 vanity units, 4 cabinets, 3 toilets, 2 bidets and a whole range of bathroom accessories. This app is great for those who want to see what a particular product looks like in real life and pushes bathroom design into the future.
