New Bathroom Displays

We’ve been busy in the showroom over the past few months & have some fantastic new bathroom displays for you to view.

Rather than a semi-countertop type washbasin, we have been asked if we can offer a countertop type washbasin. With that in mind, we are now displaying the Montrose Inca range of furniture in a Brown Grey door with Caledonian Fir carcasses, finished off with a 12mm Neostone worktop in a Café Crema finish. We have used the Vitra S20 55cm countertop washbasin, complemented it with the Vitra Sento wall hung Rimex pan & a wall mounted Vitra Brava single lever basin mixer.  To finish off, we are displaying the HIB Qubic mirrored bathroom cabinet with LED light, internal recharging socket & our range of Regent Sienna wall tiles combined with wood effect porcelain floor tiles in Willow.

Another recent addition is from our Academy Bathroom furniture collection. We have used a Slab door in White Gloss with White Gloss carcasses & used our Arco 1-piece mineral cast worktop with integrated washbasin, the Vado Ion basin mixer & Ivo back-to-wall WC pan. A new addition to our portfolio of products is the Aqata range of shower cubicles. We are displaying the stunning Spectra walk-in cubicle with hinged door for easy access along with the Vado Velo dual head thermostatic shower valve. The display is finished off with the HIB Alto 140cm high steam free mirror & Vitra Limestar wall & floor tiles.

New Bathroom

We have just completed a new bathroom for a very satisfied customer. The brief was to design a bathroom that included a bath, shower cubicle, washbasin, WC & for some storage. With clever use of Montrose fitted furniture, we combined their standard depth & reduced depth furniture along with their sit-on washbasin to give as much floor space as possible, used a quadrant cubicle & curved end bath to give as much access as possible into the bathroom, fitted a new towel warmer behind the door & finished off by fully tiling the walls & floor. Installation was completed by ABJ Home Improvements.

Below are our original photo-realistic designs along with images of the finished job.

Vitra Rimless WC Pans

The Bathroom & Kitchen Academy in Dibden Purlieu are proud to be a Showroom of Excellence for the VitrA range of bathrooms & can supply their range of Rim-Ex WC pans. This innovative design offers improved hygiene & effortless cleaning.

Vitra’s rimless WC pan technology dispenses with one of the most unhygienic aspects of traditional WC design, where hard-to-clean rims can harbour germs & allow them to multiply unchecked. The unique design of their Rim-Ex pans incorporate a water diverter to direct the flush around the bowl, which can be removed easily for cleaning.

For more information, pop in to our showroom in Beaulieu Road where we will be happy to discuss your requirements & give you more information on the Rim-Ex range from VitrA.
