Although not set as far back as the Victorian era this charming Art Deco classic has a timeless appeal that will add glamour and glitz to any bathroom setting.

Ideal Standard Ceraplan Brassware
The strikingly simple Ceraplan range of brassware made by Ideal Standard puts simplicity and ease of use at the forefront of its design. Its superb design has a discreet universal appeal to the style conscious home owner an d makes use of the latest technology which is carefully integrated into the component products.

Ideal Standard Conceala 2 Cisterns
Behind every good toilet there is a good cistern so with this in mind Ideal Standard have created the Conceala 2 range of cisterns. Made from high impact plastic to prevent being damaged during installation, these premium grade cisterns come with all component parts fitted so your installer will have no problems. They can be fitted inside a furniture unit or inside a wall cavity for connection to back to the wall toilets and feature a standard gauge water supply pipe with smooth contours to allow maximum water delivery for the highest quality flush.

Conceala 2 have also been designed with water-saving in mind using either six and four litre dual flush or even down as low as 2.6 litres for a single flush. Flush activation is well catered for and they provide several options. A chrome dual flush plate is best used with a toilet unit or you can install their dedicated range of levers and pneumatic air lines, all in high quality chrome finishes.
Ideal Standard Cone Brassware
The World’s resources are under pressure so wasting water has moved right to the top of the agenda for many manufacturers. Ideal Standard have moved quickly to address this concept and optimising water control has been incorporated onto many of their ranges, especially Cone.
The Cone range has been created by award winning designer Robin Levien and the bold, cutting edge appeal has translated into products that will fulfil every need. The cylindrical shape of the basin mixer includes a pop-up waste as well as an eco-flow regulator that can cut water flow down to five litres per minute if necessary. Pillar taps and a matching bidet mixer with adjustable aerated nozzle further expand the range.
Give your bath a makeover with one of five bath tap sets from traditional twin pillar taps through to a deck mounted filler with central diverter fitted with a sparkling chrome hose and single function handset. A completely new concept recently has been to do away with standard bath taps altogether and fill the bath from the waste overflow with a hidden spout. The water is then controlled from a hidden valve with two small controls but remarkably this is also included in the range, unique features at everyday prices with Ideal Standard.
Ideal Standard Concept Freedom
Directional and creative thinking by top designer Robin Levien has proved that versatility is not just available to those with the deepest pockets. The Create range from Ideal Standard combines two shapely design concepts that you can mix and match to create your own look.

Pedestals and trap covers combine to produce the look you want and with several sizes from 450 to 550 plus a semi-recessed version for unit mounting your new bathroom will evoke a feeling of understated elegance. It is worth noting that a countertop vessel bowl has also been produced that will integrate perfectly and can be used with wall or tall basin mixers.
Create toilets follow suit with square or curved cisterns to match other ceramicware and a choice of close coupled, back to wall or wall hung will meet your lifestyle requirements whichever you choose. The Create concept is rounded off with the inclusion of several bath styles: rectangular, showering with curved glass screen and corner. Make your choice, you won’t regret it.
Ideal Standard Jasper Morrison
World renowned European designer Jasper Morrison has brought his considerable talent to Ideal Standard and created his own range of ceramic ware and bathing concepts. He has utilised sharply defined crisp angles and contrasted them with curvaceous design to produce a capsule collection that exudes stylish opulence.
Take a closer look at the basins and toilets, they just look a little bit more defined and sharper than the usual, almost hand-made. The 400mm cloakroom basin is a useful addition to the smaller bathroom while the 500 and 550mm sizes will be more comfortable to use with a larger family. Trap covers and tapered pedestals are available if you want to hide pipework.
Storage and furniture are always needed in a bathroom and to save further space you can simply add the semi-recessed basin to a unit for an entirely integrated look. The 500mm vessel bowl is an award winning design and comes without tap holes so you can add a classy tall tap or even wall mounted taps. Several styles of toilet have been produced from close coupled to wall hung. The finishing touch is a graceful 1800mm asymmetric bath with wide edges and a deep sculpted interior leaving you cocooned by warm water. Jasper Morrison is a design classic with refined contours and timeless appeal.
Ideal Standard Silver Brassware
The Silver brassware collection from Ideal Standard is the perfect answer for those who strive for quality and perfection. Each piece is carefully crafted to enhance its strong geometric appeal and refined contours. The Silver range is quite extensive covering all aspects of water delivery from basins to baths and unusually many mixers are offered with both single and dual controls. The spouts feature elegant curved swan neck curvature and carefully place the water exactly where it should go without splashing.
The graceful, delicate curves of the tap bodies provide a sharp contrast with the crisp angles of the operating levers. Specialist mixers have been created for countertop or vessel bowls which add extra height to reach over the edge of the basins or you can choose wall mounted sets with separate hot and cold supplies.
Bath fillers can be deck or wall mounted with wall mounting being the preferred choice should you want to keep the rim of your bath free from clutter and chrome. The charm of this aesthetically appealing range even extends into the shower room with a twin control mixer or the ultimate valve with thermostatic control that will not only shower you but also fill your bath! Silver from Ideal Standard is definitely the gold standard when it comes to bathroom choices.
