No bathroom is complete without the correct taps and mixers to complement it, and Victoria and Albert pay the closest attention to every detail to ensure that their selections of brassware are suited to their surroundings.
The image above shows the Lario 3-hole tap set in chrome, perfect for a period basin.
Merging British engineering with Italian design, the result is a stunning balance of durability and style - a winning combination for the 21st century.
Victoria and Albert readily recognise their influences, with a heritage range of traditionally styled taps and mixers.
This Staffordshire bath mixer features an additional showering handset.
The Staffordshire collection of heritage brassware provides the perfect complement for the vintage home that is in need of a refreshed bathroom that acknowledges its heritage. By staying true to the forms of the past, while embracing all the benefits of modern materials and manufacturing result in a robust, durable brassware suite that looks the part. Staffordshire taps and mixers are loving recreations from this bygone era, perfectly capturing the spirit of the Victorian and Edwardian lifestyle in their shapes and forms. White ceramic details provide the ideal finishing touch to these items.
Representing the modern era is the Tubo collection. Sleek, modern and poised, it makes the perfect addition to the interior that pivots around contemporary chic and style.
These Cabrits countertop bowls shown above create the perfect 'his' and 'hers' setting.
Perfectly proportioned, it takes the simple shape of the cylinder and coaxes it into an array of shapes that fit their purpose exactly. Keeping in mind the bigger picture of the coordinated bathroom, or indeed entire living space, Victoria and Albert ensure that each of these pieces can coordinate with each other for a logical arrangement from room to room.
Each line is presented in three different finishes to cater for rooms coloured in different palettes and moods. Polished Chrome and Polished Nickel give a smooth, modern appearance that lends itself to presenting a clean and professional look.
The Tubo Bath Filler and Shower Mixer in nickel is matched to the Kit 17 Waste and Overflow set, also with a nickel finish.
Polished chrome has long been the 'go-to' look for modern bathrooms, mainy for its ability to blend into any setting without clashing but instead providing a luxurious mirror-like finish. For a more refined statement, Brushed Nickel has a warmer character, well suited to traditional interiors, or a room that benefits from a tactile lift.
Providing solutions for basins and baths, the Victoria and Albert taps and mixers range gives a comprehensive range to fit both. Wall mounted sets are present for the bathroom that is looking for something with a flourish, while standard tap sets and mixers give ready options for basins and baths that require the standard two separate feeds.
Freestanding baths will also find their perfect partners here too, with tall, freestanding bath mixers acting as a suitable foil. Provision is also made for the bidet, with taps and mixers available to provide this often overlooked but important fixture in the bathroom with a suitable water inlet.
Victoria and Albert pride themselves on their design, craftsmanship and eye for detail. All these qualities are to be found within their collections of taps and mixers. Durable enough to withstand years of daily use, yet beautiful in appearance, they combine all the finest qualities of European design and manufacturing into cohesive pieces. Proudly made in England, Victoria and Albert continue their tradition of excellence and contribute to the fine heritage of British manufacturing.
