A good looking and competitively priced contemporary bathroom collection always comes high on every bathroom retailer’s wish list – but design detail is often sacrificed for the sake of price. This certainly is not the case with the new Britton Bathrooms range from The Bathroom Brands Group
A true one stop source, this exciting new brand includes four sanitaryware designs, bathroom furniture, brassware and accessories supported by an easy to use consumer brochure and website, at www.brittonbathrooms.com, both are packed with appealing lifestyle photography and the backing of one of Europe's biggest bathroom companies.
Cube S20, Curve S30, Fine S40 and Tall S48 are the four ranges in the bathroom collection. Common sizing throughout means that all pieces can be mixed and matched easily. The basins come in pedestal and wall hung options and formats for use with furniture and in cloakrooms. There is a choice of WCs, smart modern furniture in four colour options, two different tap ranges with eight fittings in each one and ceramic accessories to complete the picture. Design touches to make a difference include sleek towel rails that fit neatly into the recess under the basin skirt and chrome overflow rings.
Fine S40 features elegant flared lines and a deep, tapered basin shape, for a look that you would really expect to find at a much higher price, illustrating the quality and craftsmanship that has gone into the production of this versatile collection. Vitreous china is a volatile material, for technical reasons it is very difficult to produce pieces like the deep, tapered basin that is the key design theme of the Fine collection. "The Fine range is a winner with its chiselled look and depth of basin - very hard to achieve in ceramic manufacturing," commented Bathroom Brands' Darren Allison. "The one piece WC adds to the designer look and is a real tribute to the quality of manufacturing that produced this collection."
The one piece WC has a sleek cistern designed without a separate lid, to give a clean, minimalist look. All three WC pans in the range feature Nanoglaze, which is an anti-bacterial coating that helps to make the pan very easy to clean. The 2.5/4 litre flush cistern helps to save water - but recognising that in some products the reduced flush does not always clear the pan completely - leading to a second flush that wastes water - the pan exit is positioned to help to speed soil on its way. This thoughtful detail adds to the quality and appeal of the Britton Bathrooms range.
Inclusive design is important to every bathroom manufacturer. Recognising that we are all getting taller, Britton Bathrooms has made the basin and WC in the Tall range 6cm higher than standard. This also introduces an important comfort factor for older people - a 48cm high WC is much easier to use than one at 42cm for anyone with creaky knees and a taller basin avoids the need to stoop.
"We are proud to say that the Britton Bathrooms range ticks all the boxes." commented Darren. "Contemporary design is very strong in the UK. These four collections have an appealing, clean, modern look and the fact that the range includes everything needed to create a perfect bathroom from just one supplier makes sense for both our retailers and their customers."
