Adding a splash of colour to the bathroom
Victoria + Albert Pescadero bath with RAL 2012 exterior
How a coloured bath and basin can transform the feel of a luxury bathroom.
Bathrooms are frequently defined by the absence of colour. White is seen as simple and clean, but can lack warmth and personality. The largest expanse of white in the bathroom is often the bath, frequently set against white tiles and a white floor. Yet in a luxury bathroom the bath ought to be a centrepiece, representing relaxation and indulgence. It shouldn’t feel cold and clinical. One option to consider is a painted bath. The exterior colour emphasises the sculptural shape of the bath, draws the eye and perhaps encourages the guest to consider a leisurely dip.
Designer and manufacturer of luxury baths, Victoria + Albert, now offer all their baths in a choice of 194 RAL colours. The RAL palette allows for simple matching to wall coverings and fabrics, and the vast range offers interior designers incredible freedom. Victoria + Albert offer the same colour service for their basins, so the bathroom can be coordinated. RAL colours can be specified in gloss or matt, to suit different styles and light conditions.
