As you all know, I love exploring the upcoming trends that we will start to see filtering into interiors in the coming months. One of my favourite new trends is, without doubt, the move away from white bathroom suites in favour of coloured sanitary ware which is making a huge comeback. And this time we are seeing much bolder colours than we saw back in the 1970s when avocado suites were all the rage.
Coloured bathroom basins are everywhere at the moment and there seems to be no limit to the colour palette on offer, from muted earthy tones to soft, sweet pastel colours right through to the bolder more statement colours. Bathrooms are currently undergoing an injection of personality and white has finally been knocked off its throne.
The coloured Corian bathroom basins in this post are all from Riluxa, the biggest online retailer of DuPont Corian® washbasins in the whole of Europe. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Corian®, this is a versatile solid surface material that is popular with architects and designers specialising in healthcare, food service, hospitality, office buildings, schools, and of course, homes.
What makes Corian® so popular is the extraordinary design flexibility that it offers and the extensive range of vibrant colours that it comes in. It is ideal for use in bathrooms with a range of applications from wall cladding, shower trays, vanity tops, and basins. It is durable, nonporous, and easy to clean, making Corian® the perfect material for low-maintenance luxury.
Riluxa’s new coloured Corian bathroom collection is designed and manufactured by Spanish company Galfia, in the latest range of Corian® colours, many of which defy the traditional image we may have of a bathroom.
The new coloured Corian bathroom collection is largely inspired by nature such as various types of stone, bone, ore, shell, wood and so on. Some of the surfaces appear textured and mottled, whilst others are in flat and matt colours.
So whether you are looking for a statement double washbasin in Corian® Citrus Orange, a lovely new shower tray in Corian® Cocoa Prima, complete with rich, chocolatey swirls, or a vanity unit in Corian® Deep Night Sky, the new coloured Corian bathroom collection has it all.
However, if you are looking for a bargain, you might just find it in last year’s equally beautiful and no less inspiring range. In celebration of Black Friday which falls on 29th November this year (2019), Riluxa will be giving you the chance to pick up a range of bespoke, made-to-measure black Corian® and solid surface products at a fraction of today’s list prices. Included in this offer is the gorgeous, award-nominated and aptly named ‘Lofty Black’ solid surface bathtub.
Designed by Galfia exclusively for Riluxa and recently nominated for a prestigious 2019 Archiproducts Design Award, Riluxa’s Lofty Black bathtub, which has a maximum-impact black exterior and familiar, inviting white interior, is one of the retailer’s top sellers.
The offers will be available at Riluxa from Friday 29th November to Sunday 1st December.
