Utopia opens refurbished showroom and resumes manufacturing and deliveries
Utopia Bathrooms tells us it is delighted to have resumed manufacturing and deliveries and that its spacious showroom - dramatically updated to showcase the new products and colours scheduled for imminent launch - is now open to visitors strictly by appointment only. In accordance with current guidelines, the company is implementing rigid safety and social distancing procedures to safeguard both staff and visitors.
The impressive mezzanine showroom at the company's Wolverhampton headquarters presents Utopia's extensive collection of fitted and modular bathroom furniture through a series of over 45 inspirational lifestyle settings. Styles range from the heritage-inspired Roseberry and Downton through to the Contemporary Fitted collection, Lustre and Opula modular ranges, and the boutique hotel-style Geo, all accessorised with brassware and tiles from Utopia's complementary collections.
"There's no substitute for seeing and feeling our products first hand - as our retailers will testify - and we have received a number of customer enquiries about visiting us,” says Helen Clark, head of marketing. “The showroom is therefore an invaluable resource, enabling us to showcase new concepts, products and finishes to retailers along with imaginative display solutions."
Also key to a number of new displays is the ability to mix and match elements from different ranges to create a bespoke look. Several of the displays demonstrate this interchangeable facility which allows even greater design flexibility.
During the lockdown, the directors have been working hard to plan a safe reopening of activities in strict accordance with Government guidelines. With rigid social distancing procedures in place, the company is now confident that manufacturing and deliveries can be carried out safely.
Joint managing director Dave Conn explains: "Although we had to halt production and deliveries temporarily, we continued to support our customers in every way we could and have also continued to work very hard behind the scenes to ensure that we cannot only deliver our planned new product launch but also introduce practical safeguarding measures for our staff, customers and extended partners.
“This has been an unprecedented time for everyone but we are determined to bounce back and give our business partners all possible assistance to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead."
