VICTORIA + ALBERT | Hotel Design at Home
By Victoria + Albert, Exclusive to KLAFFS
Freestanding baths are synonymous with the world’s most luxurious hotels, from today’s modern hotels to beachside resorts in the Pacific. And Victoria + Albert Baths are featured in some of the most prominent. But you don’t have to go to a 5-star resort to have that spa experience, the freestanding bath experts at Victoria + Albert allow homeowners to recreate the look of a chic hotel bathroom right at home, by combining elegant design and luxury materials.
The bathroom is now becoming a central living area of the home. No longer just a utilitarian space to “wash and go,” homeowners are designing their bathrooms with the same attention to detail as bedrooms and living rooms. And investing in hotel-style luxury in the bath can even give you a higher return on your investment.
According to a recent article in This Old House magazine, “People buying a house look first at kitchens and baths,” says Kermit Baker, director of the remodeling futures program at the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University. By investing in a luxurious bathroom, it’s likely to pay for itself when the time comes to sell.
Victoria + Albert designs are renowned by leading architects and designers for their unique composite material, ENGLISHCAST® – a blend of Volcanic Limestone™ and high performance resins. With no gel coat or paint to chip off, a Victoria + Albert bath retains its naturally white gloss shine over its lifetime – that’s why each model is backed by a 25-year guarantee.
With timeless designs in the modern and traditional collections, the bathtubs are a popular choice for architects, designers and homeowners looking to create the perfect sanctuary away from the bustle of everyday life. Victoria + Albert baths have been specified in hotels such as JW Marriott, Trump Towers, Four Seasons and award-winning boutique hotels such as Matakaurai Lodge in New Zealand and El Questro Resort in Australia.
