My name is Cheryl Kees Clendenon, a California transplant to Northwest Florida. Been in the interior design business for 14 years and learn something new every day! This blog is about the day to day running of a design business and the crazy clients, silly subs, vexing vendors and exasperating employees! Join us for the ride!
The second question we ask a new bath design client is easy. But can generate LOTs of dialogue.
“Are you a shower person or a tub person?”
(This is after we ask about their personal feelings on privacy and potty rooms. You must have no shame if you design baths for a living)
And this is critical knowledge to know before we proceed because….boy oh boy are they two different types of people! This information tells us what to emphasize and how much importance to put into shower layout and amenities or…finding just the perfect tub.Read more about the tub person vs the shower person HERE.
Our “go to” tub manufacturer ( and has been for years) is Victoria and Albert. Which as it happens, is also has been a BlogTour London sponsor since the inception of the BlogTours. Good for me, ‘eh?
We have used over a dozen V and A baths over the past few years. Some of our photos below can even be seen on their awesome new website at Vandabaths.com. Note: the revamped website is a joy to navigate, offers great specs on all the tubs and of course beautiful inspiration photos! Victoria and Albert tubs are made from 100% ENGLISHCAST®, a unique blend of volcanic limestone and high performance resins.
The inspired designs of Victoria and Albert provide something for everyone and honestly so do the price points. There are many collections but the favorite of our design team has always been the Ravello. We have also used the Marlborough, York, Toulouse, and the Monaco as well AND just designed a gorgeous bath and master suite where a new IOS will be the highlight! This will be the first time we have used this model and am excited to see it’s gorgeous self! This is it folks when it comes to luxurious tubs. Which is your favorite?
