Utopia has launched a new bathroom furniture range, Contemporary Fitted. The range delivers both fitted and wall mounted configurations, the emphasis is on tall mirrors, contemporary Scandi-inspired finishes and feature metallic accents.
Commercial Director Pete Penlington explains “Fitted furniture is what we are famous for at Utopia but in design terms it seems to be over-shadowed by wall mounted. Now we have focussed all our experience and design expertise on creating a range of fitted furniture that is effortlessly stylish and elegant but also supremely practical.” He continues “2019 will be our 30th anniversary year and we see Contemporary Fitted as a celebration of everything we stand for at Utopia – quality, design innovation, ease of installation and exceptional service.”
Contrasting colours and textures are key to the new collection which has just four carefully selected door finishes. Alongside Flat White and Flat Grey, which have beautiful matt satin finishes, Sandwashed White and Washed Oak have been developed using the latest technology to reproduce natural colour and deep wood grain perfectly. Door and fascia colours can be mixed and matched while a sensational finishing touch is added with a beautiful metallic trim available in chrome, copper or matt black. From this palette of just four colours and three trims, it is possible to create an amazing number of combinations.
Rich Shore, Utopia’s Head of Product Design, says it is all about the experience – touch, colour, light and elegance. The elegant, handleless drawerline concept accommodates a wide range of storage solutions that not only runs seamlessly wall to wall but also floor to ceiling.
In 200, 300, 350, 600 and 700mm widths, the base cabinets all feature a setback low level plinth, a clever stylistic touch that gives the furniture perfect proportions and creates a floating effect when illuminated. The standard option is a base cupboard with an internal shelf, upgrading to a single deep storage drawer or ultimately a deep storage drawer which conceals a second accessory drawer.
A comprehensive range of wall and mirror cabinets in the same widths as the base furniture but with extended height, allows a floor to ceiling fit offering exceptional storage capacity. The addition of a ceiling filler means that ceiling heights between 2.2 and 2.4m can be accommodated. Also handless, the wall cabinets are available in co-ordinating finishes or framed double sided mirror doors. A tall sit-on unit featuring the distinctive decorative trim allows the wall space to be utilised completely. All wall cabinets have two fixed glass shelves positioned to accommodate taller items and there is also the option to have an internal sensor light so that the cabinet is fully illuminated on opening.
Completing the cabinetry is a range of co-ordinating bath panels with a 100mm plinth, available in 1700 and 1800mm main panels and 700, 750 and 800mm end panels.
