We launched our Your Bathrooms section at the beginning of this year and it is fast becoming one of our most popular areas on the website. The Your Bathrooms section was created to showcase Roman products in real bathroom make-over situations, to help visitors to the site get inspired for their own bathroom renovations. We are delighted to have had so many fantastic submissions and as the section grows, we thought now would be a good time to pick out some of our Your Bathrooms highlights. Here’s our top 5 so far… Continue reading
Although we know we shouldn’t, they are all our babies after all, we can’t help but have our favourite shower enclosures from the Roman ranges! Now that the cat is out of the bag, we may as well share them with you and let you know why…
1. Our Orbital Colossus Enclosure – why? We love that it is a true bath replacement. It has been designed with a footprint of 1700 x 700mm so it perfectly slots into your bathroom to modernise your space and replace your bath. Its curved glass then bows out to present a specious showering area. The Orbital Colossus Walk-in was the first true bath replacement available, and in our eyes is the best.
2. Embrace Three Panel Sliding Door – what makes ours different? This is a sliding shower door enclosure with a twist. It has an ‘active’ middle door which sees the door opening further to create a wider aperture for effortless entry.
3. Desire 8mm Curved Glass Quadrant – what’s so special about a quadrant shower enclosure, you may ask? Well we’ve designed ours so the sliding mechanism is in the base, allowing it to be frameless at the top. This gives it a modern minimalist twist, whilst the 8mm thick glass gives a quality finish.
4. Sculptures Corner Panel with Concealed Profile – we have taken the minimalist wetroom look one step further with our concealed profile. This can be channelled into the wall, so the profile is totally hidden, for a totally frameless finish which still allows for some adjustment. It is also available with the option of a return panel for added water integrity.
5. Freestanding Sculptures Walk-in – well the picture really speaks for itself here. The Freestanding Walk-in is a true statement enclosure. Probably bigger than many peoples’ actual bathrooms, but a real show stopper none-the-less! If you’re lucky enough to have the space, it’s the perfect centrepiece for your bathroom.
Don’t forget – all Roman enclosures and bath screens feature Roman Ultra Care pre-coated glass protection, for easy cleaning and lasting sparkle. They also carry our service backed lifetime guarantee.
November has been a very exciting month for all of us at Roman. We began the month by receiving a ‘Highly Commended’ award, then the following week we were shortlisted for another award, and then last week we took home the Gold!
Here’s a rundown of the products entered, and what we won…
Designer Kitchen and Bathrooms Magazine Awards
Roman’s Project Specification Guide, took the Gold Award at the Designer Kitchen and Bathrooms Magazine Awards:
Earlier this year we launched the Project Specification Guide in response to demand from our contract customers, both inside and outside of the UK. The Guide is aimed at architects, designers and specifiers who are working on large scale projects, such as Hotels, Housing Developments and Condominiums, and who are looking for a totally bespoke showering solution. It allows them to pick and choose every part of the enclosure, from the glass finish, to the handle; from the sealing system, to the bracing; and from the footprint and height, to the hinges.
The Project Specification Guide is available as a printed brochure, or via our dedicated website: www.roman-showers.com/psg
House Beautiful Awards
Infinity Shower Trays, were Shortlist at the House Beautiful Awards for Best Bathroom Product, after a record number of entries:
The Infinity Shower Trays offer a stylish level access solution for your showering space. They are manufactured in our on-site Solid Surface manufacturing facility, from our own Roman Stone material. This is a self-reinforcing material which allows the trays to be installed directly onto your joists; once tiled up to, total level access is achieved. This offers a simulated wetrooms look, with a hassle-free installation. The tray is then completed with a solid surface waste cover, to give a totally seamless and minimalist finish. The Infinity Trays are available in a range of size options, including a quadrant shaped version.
The Northern Design Awards
Roman Shield Complete Wetroom Tanking System, was Highly Commended by The Northern Design Awards:
Our Roman Shield Complete Wetroom Tanking System makes installing a wetroom easy. It incorporates a solid surface Preformed Shower Floor – this is cast in our on-site Solid Surface Manufacturing Facility. This sits directly onto your joists and gives total water integrity, whilst also creating a natural fall towards the waste, to help the water naturally flow out of the showering area, eliminating the need to use a levelling compound. The kit then also includes everything you need to tank the room in preparation for tiling, including an easy to follow step by step guide.
The Roman Shield Complete Wetroom Tanking System has previously won Best Bathroom Product in the Homebuilding and Renovating Awards, as well as the KBB Reader Awards.
