We now offer 132 painted finishes on our cabinets!

Posted : 28 October 2015

We are delighted to announce that we are now offering our solid oak painted furniture range in 132 colours. The Balasani option is already available in light oak and 6 fashionable muted colours: Plum Grey, Moonlight Blue, Palomba Grey, Latte Stone, Artichoke Green and Timid Teal.  The 700mm and 920mm Empire and Victorian 635mm Vanity cabinets will now also be available in painted options.

Customers can choose from 132 colours offered by a well known brand of quality heritage paints. Unpainted cabinets are held in stock and can be painted up in a chosen colour in 2 weeks.  Customers should call 01782 717175 and request a price and further information about the colour range on offer. There is a small premium for this service to cover logistics but it should not deter anyone who is comfortable with the pricing of the existing options in the range.

There are always customers who want to go the extra mile when choosing their furniture options and the colours for their bathroom. We know how irritating it can be when your shade of cream or blue is just slightly out. Painted furniture in the Shaker style is very popular at the moment and for a little extra trouble we can increase a customer’s choice significantly and help them achieve the look to which they aspire.  We already supply cast iron baths in a primed finish to allow customers to paint them the colour of their choice so offering a facility to make bath and cabinets match was the obvious next step.

The Basin as Wash Station

Posted : 22 October 2015

There has been so much emphasis in recent years on basins as an aesthetic piece, almost an item of sculpture perched on a countertop, that it’s easy to forget their practical side. But has minimalism gone too far?  In fact, a basin can also be seen as a sort of ablution work station or a dashboard hosting the means of water control (tap, waste, overflow) and storage for soaps and sponges. The Victorians were great engineers and eminently practical as regards matters of the built world. Silverdale’s Victorian basin exemplifies this spirit with its generous proportions, soap recesses and tall splashback keeping water and accessories in their place and minimising cleaning by protecting the wall. 

When twinned with a stand or a piece of furniture, your work station receives an upgrade.  Even with a large basin, a heated stand can paradoxically provide a space-saving option, combining as it does, the functions of a radiator and a towel rail all within a footprint of less than a square metre.  Silverdale offers heated and unheated stands for both of its 635mm and its 530mm Victorian basins.   Solid oak cabinets are available for the Victorian 635 basin, the Balasani 600mm basin  and the Empire 700 and 920 basins. By elongating the sides of your basin into a console as shown with the Empire 920 and stand, you create more space for lotions and even ornaments should the man of the house permit!

Silverdale's Accessories: the jewels of the bathrooms

Posted : 19 October 2015

Accessories really are the jewellery of the bathroom “outfit”.  When you first enter the room, it’s the structural pieces you notice – the white pottery, may be a free standing bath and the furniture.  But up close and in use, it’s these bright finishing touches that catch the eye and pull the look together.
Silverdale has 2 ranges of traditional accessories designed to complement the lines of their pottery.  UK made and in hand-polished brass, they range from £51 to £170.  The Victorian range has the more angular fixing element and is available in chrome, incalux and polished nickel.  The Berkeley range has a circular mount and comes in chrome only.  Both options have a comprehensive range of practical pieces:  single or double horizontal towel rails and towel rings, robe hook, sponge and soap baskets, glass shelf, soap dish and branded tumblers, corner basket, toothbrush and toilet roll holders . So whether it’s soap, toothbrushes or towels, they offer 2 elegant ways of deploying and displaying these essential bathroom tools but also decorating the bathroom too.

Solid Oak Furniture

Posted : 01 May 2015
We launched several new luxury products in our 2015 brochure. Here we are focussing on our brand new furniture range.

Our solid oak cabinets in Shaker-style to match the Victorian, Balasani and Empire basins add colour, gravity and texture to a period scheme. The Balasani cabinet is available in light oak and a choice of 6 fashionable, muted paint finishes - Palomba Grey, Latte Stone, Plum Grey, Moonlight Blue, Timid Teal and Artichoke Green. Our Empire suite, a Deco style range, offers a 700 and a 920 cabinet in Ebony black.

The Victorian 635mm basin can be installed on a light oak vanity unit while the 440mm Undermount Basin can come with one of 3 fabulous granite tops – Night Sky Black, Appaloosa Cream or Saltaire Grey – and be fitted on the same vanity unit.

All the units have a pewter effect knob and a central shelf. We are also offering a matching wooden mirror available in all the colours to finish off the look.
