Plush flush from Roper Rhodes - plus, coming soon...
There was a lot to see on the Roper Rhodes stand which was set alongside striking Laura Ashley room-sets displaying some luxurious bathroom options, including two new double-skinned acrylic slipper baths which were comfortingly warm to the touch and which have resin reinforcement for additional strength and rigidity.
We thought one was white and the other was a stone colour, until Homestyle PR's Nicki Hanley pointed out that they were both exactly the same shade of white - which shows the important part the consumer's choice of lighting plays in the eventual look of a bathroom!
Back to Roper Rhodes... the 'plush flush' referred to in the headline is the new black glass-fronted Sensor Dual Flush Plate, which combines style with functionality and is designed to be mounted horizontally. It is incredibly easy to operate - lightly touching the plate is all that is required to initiate the two flushing options and the plate will also light up to indicate activation.
What really caught our eye though amongst a myriad of striking bathroom solutions was something that is still in development... a bathroom mirror with all the attributes one would come to expect from the company but with the added attraction of Spotify. So brilliant, it warranted a (rare) selfie!
