Embargoed until 1st March 2019 – In response to a strong demand for bespoke colour finishes, luxury British bathing brand Victoria + Albert Baths is proud to now offer 194 RAL colour exterior finishes across the entire collection of freestanding QUARRYCAST™ baths and basins. This follows the footsteps of the brand’s six popular standard paint finishes, launched in 2016. The new colour finishes will be officially launched this March at ISH Frankfurt.
Designing your own bathroom to suit your individual style has never easier – with the introduction of an impressive range of 194 RAL colours and feet finishes, Victoria + Albert’s tubs are now fully customisable, ensuring you will be able to have your bathtub in the colour you truly like. There are over 28,000 variants of their baths, and over 5,000 basin variants. On top of this, customers can choose between gloss or matte finishes, offering an even greater choice.
The addition of a brightly coloured, freestanding bath or basin is the perfect way to inject colour into any bathroom space and creates a striking focal point. Whether you’re tapping into the botanical trend with deep greens and earthy tones, or are looking for a vibrant and eye-catching finish, such as this year’s Pantone Colour of the Year, Living Coral, Victoria + Albert Baths now offers an incredibly wide selection to choose from.

The exterior paint finishes contrast with the crisp white QUARRYCAST™ interior of the freestanding baths and basins. Renowned by homeowners and designers alike for its durability, QUARRYCAST™ is naturally white, beautifully strong and easy to clean.
Each finish is multi layered using a specialist catalysed paint and is hand polished between applications. This technique results in an exceptional depth and lustre to the finish and is considerably more durable than hand painted surfaces. The full selection of available RAL colours will be available to view on the Victoria + Albert Baths website from March.
Victoria + Albert Baths is renowned for its unique QUARRYCAST™ material, made from a unique blend of Volcanic Limestone™ and high-performance resins in its wholly owned factories in South Africa.
Volcanic Limestone™ is Victoria + Albert’s name for the very special white rock that is perfect for making baths and basins. It is formed when the elemental forces associated with liquid magma act upon surrounding soft, chalky limestone. The immense heat and pressure from the magma transforms the neighbouring rock into a new material made up of incredibly hard strands. Finely milled Volcanic Limestone™ is blended with high quality resins to bind these strands into a complex 3D matrix. The finished result is QUARRYCAST™ – a world-class stone composite that delivers unrivalled strength, durability and beauty:
