Every bathroom is different. So, too, is every customer’s sense of style and colour. Consequently, Design & Form doesn’t believe that customers should have to settle for a fixed range of products in predetermined sizes and shades. An important benefit available to all customers is that all baths in the Cabuchon range can be customised. Below are a few recent examples of clients who have taken advantage of it.

Colour matching

A customer based in Hove recently purchased a Calyx 1230 deep soaking tub, together with a chrome-finished extended waste/overflow. The customer is in the process of renovating his bathroom and, as part of this project, he purchased a number of grey tiles. Having visited the Cabuchon website, he knew that he could choose a bath in literally any colour, so he provided a tile sample and asked the company to match it.

The team began by checking its standard library of pigments but unfortunately, that did not include a perfect match. With the customer’s agreement, Design & Form then subjected the tile to a computer colour matching process, which enabled it to manufacture the bath in exactly the right shade. At the time of writing, the bath is under construction and looking beautiful.

Metal plating

Another customer placed an order for the larger version of the Imersa deep soaking tub. This will be produced in Imperial White.

Normally, the Imersa is supplied with chrome-finished grab bars but the client asked if the bars could be produced with a polished nickel finish in order to match the taps on his existing sanitaryware. He had a similar requirement for the visible part of the extended waste/overflow. The company readily agreed to have the grab bars and overflow specially plated. Once complete, it will fit them to the bath ready for shipping.

Modification of bath sizes

A customer from Newcastle upon Tyne recently ordered a Yasahiro deep soaking tub - the newest bath in the Cabuchon range. It was finished in a special Superwhite colour, fitted with a bespoke matching front panel.

One important constraint was the bathroom’s dimensions. The customer had only a 1415mm gap to work with, yet the Yasahiro’s usual length is 1440mm. Design & Form therefore made the bath with narrower rims in order to make it fit the plan. (With any such project, the bath’s internal dimensions remain the same.)

Another customer – this time in Aberdeen – purchased a Nirvana deep soaking tub in Superwhite and this too was subject to space restrictions. The Nirvana has a normal width of 860mm but the customer’s bathroom allowed a space of only 825mm. The company designed and built the rims to suit and the finished bath will now fit perfectly.
