THE WORD ON HIGH END DESIGN

17th January 2019

Statistics from the latest AMA Research study suggests that consumer knowledge and awareness of bathroom products is on the rise. As a result, homeowners are increasingly investing in products that not only offer longevity, but also good quality design.
In order to tie in with the demand for quality bathroom products, we’ve launched our brand-new Designer Collection brochure. These products have been carefully selected to bring housebuilders the ultimate in stylish taps and showers, so you'll find a solution to suit any development. Not only that, but it also clearly marks which products have the WRAS Approved Product status – making it easier than ever for developers to comply with water regulations.

It is important for housebuilders to capitalise on the ‘feel good factor’ by staying on top of emerging and new trends in order to inspire and entice customers seeking to achieve their dream bathroom. So paying attention to brochures such as the Designer Collection will, in turn, ensure they maximise their profit potential.

An obvious starting point – given the market predictions – lies with the shower. Showers have evolved from being a functional and speedy way of washing to become a focal point for the bathroom, meaning there’s now a greater choice of designs available than ever before to cater to every conceivable requirement. To begin with, the buzzword of the moment is digital.

Here, a good option is the Bliss shower from Bristan. Offering the ultimate premium feel at an affordable price, this electric shower with a high-tech digital display also includes a warm up mode for maximum controllability – plus, it’s easy to install. Featuring a minimalist, sleek, modern look and available in black or white, the result is the perfect combination of fashionable appeal and functionality, while meeting the burgeoning needs of the tech-savvy consumer.

Next, there is the bathroom tap to think about. Although sometimes underestimated, taps can be seen as the jewellery of the bathroom.

Here, contemporary design continues to be dominated by sleek chrome styles, such as Bristan’s Claret model, which combines an angular form and slick detailing for real urban appeal. Alternatively, European-inspired, high-end designs, such as Bristan’s Chill, can add a continental feel. In most cases, ranges are available as mixers, where water is delivered through a single mixer spout, for an added minimalistic touch.

Following a strong 2018, the good news is that the year ahead promises to be even more buoyant. For the shrewd housebuilder then, the recommendation is to use manufacturer recommendations as a real opportunity to demonstrate their expertise and design knowledge; effectively showering the customer with inspiration in order to make their projects really stand out from the crowd.
