Specialists in the design and manufacture of classic British-made bathroom solutions, Imperial Bathrooms, reveal that recreating that highly sought-after boutique chic style found in a 5* hotel is easy to emulate when incorporating a premium Vanity Console in a curated bathroom scheme.
Presenting an extensive, finely crafted selection of styles, sizes, configurations, finishes and materials to choose from, Imperial Bathrooms offer a myriad of ways to evoke an air of effortless elegance met with vintage flair through its range of authentic period-style consoles in lustrous finishes and contrasting materials.
Graham Bucktrout, Managing Director at IBC Group, says, “At Imperial Bathrooms we’re noticing that, thanks to platforms like Instagram, Pinterest and Houzz, homeowners and designers are looking for ways to bring a signature style to the bathroom that immediately sets it apart from the mainstream. Our Vanity Consoles offer instant sophistication and a guaranteed way to upgrade your bathroom interior and fundamental wash zone. Each model presents a refined elegance that creates a visual centrepiece when compared to typical furniture units, and the slender curves and tapered legs provide a lightness of form that ensures even a double Jack & Jill console is light and delicate by design.”
The Imperial Bathrooms Vanity Console collection comprises of both single and double designs, all enhanced by the company’s range of co-ordinating classic ceramic basins and broad mix of countertop and leg options. Before you embark on your next project, Imperial Bathrooms offer 3 Top Tips to help you define your style:
Living-room style: We’ve all had a chance to re-evaluate what we want from our living spaces as we’ve been forced to spend more time indoors over the last 18 months, and as a result we’re seeing the lines blurring between different areas in the home. Imperial Bathrooms can reveal that a hot new trend to emerge is the living-room-style bathroom. Adorning your scheme with elements that have more of a furniture feel has emerged as a guaranteed way to promote an atmosphere of wellbeing, and create a zone you’ll feel happy to relax in. As well as adding some soft furnishings, why not incorporate a Vanity Console with elegant curved legs, and the proportions of an exquisite desk or table for a chic ‘salon style’ aesthetic?
Luxe looks: Conjuring up that elusive and indefinable sense of luxury is not as straightforward as it sounds, but there are some helpful design tricks that you can use. Imperial Bathrooms recommends paying close attention to the materials and finishes that you select. For example, if you opt for a Vanity Console with Antique Gold legs, then team it with taps in a matching finish, and a co-ordinating soap, tumbler and toilet-roll holder too – you can even extend the theme to your wall lights for extra seamlessness. Added to that, introducing some marble into the mix in the form of a glamorous console countertop will take your design to a whole new level – an effect that will be amplified by going for a double rather than a single basin configuration.
Dare to be different: Let’s face it, it’s not every day you embark on a complete bathroom renovation project, so see this as your moment to devise a setting that you’ll never get tired of. Instead of instinctively choosing similar products to the ones you had in your previous bathroom, why not be a little bolder in your choices – consider a console countertop in Black Granite Satin, Carrara White Gloss, or Concrete or Travertine Haze, or perhaps a stand with a black ceramic basin instead of a white one. Moving outside your comfort zone when it comes to design will help to keep things fresh, and ensure your new bathroom is an environment you played a part in creating, as well as being a blissful place where you can seek sanctuary.
