Take a shine to Pescara

The UK’s leading Fireplace and Bathroom Furniture manufacturer, Be Modern, has introduced a new cream gloss cabinet, perfectly matched to their existing highly popular Pescara door. The new cabinet is shown here featuring the In Line Breeze basin (which is also shown in the slim line version with the Novara range of furniture), which has seen massive growth year on year since it’s launch. The new gloss cabinet is available in all sizes and is available in Be Modern’s completely revised new combined brochure “Atlanta Bathroom Furniture”. Atlanta has also introduced another new door into their collection “Camini”, which is a striking matt white door with a definite Art Deco feel to it.

The new brochure (which is available now) combines the Atlanta, Concepts and Aquis brands into one easy to use catalogue and is just one part of the new look to Atlanta. The new look features new brand colours, new point of sale material and a brand new website which offers amongst many other things, retailers and installers the chance to showcase their companies, with a dedicated page for each company, all completely free of charge! The website is consumer centric and allows the consumer to get design ideas for their bathroom furniture based on colour, room shape and size and even by usage type.

Calling all bathroom installers

Trade Space is an innovative new service from Atlanta which connects approved bathroom installers with homeowners.

Homeowners visiting the Atlanta website are able to view the installer’s profile and more importantly browse their portfolio.  A case study format has been designed for trade space which allows the installer to share information about the brief, budget, and products used, giving the customer an insight into the whole process of planning and installing the bathroom.

Homeowners can search case studies either by product, room layout or renovation type.  Therefore if the installer has a wide variety of case studies in their portfolio this will provide them with the greatest amount of exposure.

Trade Space connects the installer’s company and its portfolio with thousands of potential customers who typically visit our website looking for ideas and if the installer’s portfolio of work inspires them they are only one click away from contacting them.

Trade Space is complete free to Atlanta account holders or bathroom installers who have been recommended by an Atlanta dealer.

50 Shades of White

You walk into a bathroom showroom in any part of the UK and you can take your pick from a cornucopia of white sanitaryware. The UK bath and sanitaryware market is estimated to be worth around £280 million at msp and it must appear to the consumer that you can have white, white or white. This does not mean a return to avocado, honeysuckle or even misty peach is imminent as generally the consumer wants white sanitaryware; however there are still lots of ways to get colour (and differentiation) into a bathroom furniture design.

Clever use of bathroom furniture adds not only a splash of colour into any bathroom; it adds the practical advantage of storage and something as simple as a vanity unit with a matching bath panel, changes the average bathroom into a room to be proud of. Matching the right sanitaryware with the right furniture is paramount to both achieving the right look as well as being easy to install. Sales of products such as in line basins, which require no cut-outs in the countertop, thus saving time and money on the installation of the product, are growing dramatically.

The reality is that sanitaryware is always going to be predominantly white, but as a manufacturer, we will continue to do our best to offer the retailer and the consumer, as many options as possible to add a little colour into their bathroom designs.
