BC Designs - Time to relax in a BC bath

Date Added: 01.06.2022

Bathrooms are changing, with an increasing focus on comfort over aesthetics. BC Designs’ latest range offers the best of both worlds, proving that customers don’t need to sacrifice style for substance.

Ideal Bathrooms is proud to be the exclusive distributor for BC Designs collection of freestanding baths, offering customers a versatile range
of hard-wearing, solid baths that look just as good as they feel. Ideal Bathrooms partnership with BC Design dates back to 2017, when managing director Darren Allison was looking for a partner that could offer UK-wide distribution.

Darren said: “We’d already seen the success of our Bayswater brand being distributed through Ideal; we had an exclusive deal for three years and now, five years on, we’ve changed our route to market. “Since then, we’ve seen year-on-year growth, and I know we can always rely on Ideal to deliver the service levels they’ve promised.”

Freestanding baths

The latest range, designed exclusively for Ideal Bathrooms, comprises 7 freestanding bath designs, in various sizes, offering a total of 14 SKUs. All of the models are made from one-piece Lucite acrylic, which means there are no unsightly join lines or marks, creating a sleek look
in any bathroom – or any other room.

Freestanding baths have become increasingly popular over recent years, as customers aspire to recreate the boutique hotel feel, but space can often be a premium.

Darren added: “One of the things we’ve looked at is the design, because we know that people do want freestanding baths but they don’t necessarily have the room, so we’ve designed ones that go up to the wall, giving the best of both worlds.

The baths are made from high-quality acrylic and fibreglass, which is completely resistant to UV rays and therefore prevents discolouring when exposed to sunlight. The baths are reinforced with layers of fibreglass, resin and a special hardening composite, known as BC-Solidblue which makes the baths much stronger and improves insulation. As a result, the water stays warm for longer.

They are available in straight, L and P-shaped models to suit any style and shape of bathroom, maximising space, and comes in a wide range
of sizes. Danielle Lillis, Ideal Bathrooms’ Sales and Commercial Director, said: “We’ve worked with BC Designs for five years now, bringing their extensive Bayswater range of baths to retailers across the UK. “They are known for their skilled craftsmanship, high quality and reputation, and, with this latest range, continue to push the boundaries of great bathroom design.

“These latest collections are a perfect blend of style, practicality and comfort and we’re excited to be bringing them to market – we’re sure
they’ll prove incredibly popular

“We’ve also made a point of creating baths in smaller sizes so they will go into other rooms, such as bedrooms. I’ve even known of customers
using our small freestanding baths in the kitchen to wash the dogs in when they come in.”

All of the models feature a non-porous surface, temperature stability to keep the water warmer than other baths, chemical staining resistance,
and are easy to plumb and install with overflow and waste included.

Solidblue baths

As well as the freestanding models, BC Designs have also manufactured a range of Solidblue extra-strong baths, which are available through ideal Bathrooms. The range of reinforced baths, which are designed to stay warmer for longer, comprises 39 SKUs in a range of styles and sizes.
