Weston Homes & RAK partner to create stunning bathroom concept
Weston Homes has partnered with RAK Ceramics to create a new stunning bathroom concept that features throughout its Southpoint project. Located in Southend-on-Sea, the new high-spec development includes 97 one and two bedroom apartments.
A combination of RAK sanitaryware, surfaces and bespoke furniture reflect the project's meticulous design, bringing a balance of luxury and practicality to the bathrooms.
RAK products specified at Southpoint include RAK Resort sanitaryware, featuring the Hygiene+ rimless design in a wall-hung format. Harmony counter-top basins sit on bespoke furniture, which incorporate a RAK Lounge polished porcelain countertop and splashback, and oak or walnut front panelling. RAK Lounge tiles continue throughout the bathroom areas, with polished tiles on walls and unpolished tiles on floors, in light and dark grey tones. RAK's wide contemporary mirrors, with clock, backlighting and demister pad features, complete the specification and the chic look created.
"At Weston Homes, we're extremely proud of our product and the superior finish that features throughout all of our collections," comments Shaun Weston, executive associate, Weston Homes. "Our relationship with RAK Ceramics and the superb products they offer have provided us with a commercially viable option to continue the Weston Homes ethos
"The Lounge range fits our needs for design and price perfectly and is now our staple for bathroom tiling. Through collaborative design, RAK Ceramics and Weston Homes have also developed a superb modular vanity unit system that's our biggest specification uplift, and will continue to keep our product ahead of the curve for years to come.
"We'll continue to specify RAK Ceramics' products and we're very excited about the new RAK Maximus range, which we're looking forward to working with soon."
