Tubs Get Fresh

Splash some colour in your bathroom and elevate the cleansing ritual one step further.

The addition of a brightly coloured, freestanding bath or basin is the perfect way to inject colour into any bathroom space and creates a striking focal point. Whether you’re tapping into the botanical trend with deep greens and earthy tones, or are looking for a vibrant and eye-catching finish,

Victoria + Albert Baths now offers an impressive range of 194 RAL colours and feet finishes. The exterior paint finishes contrast with the crisp white and durable volcanic limestone interior of the freestanding baths and basins.

Unlike hand-painted surfaces, each finish is multi layered using a specialist catalysed paint and is hand polished between applications resulting in an exceptional depth and lustre to the exterior. Allow a six-week lead time to all RAL colour baths. Visit vandabaths.com for more information.
