Imersa deep soaking tub with coloured panel

The Project:

In 2018, Ms S.L. decided to renovate her bathroom and began looking for a comfortable soaking tub to replace her old bath. She was attracted to the Imersa deep soaking tub, but she had a number of special requirements.

  • It had to fit through a narrow doorway in her old cottage.
  • The bath’s colour would have to match other sanitaryware.
  • It must be supplied with a bespoke side panel in a special colour to match her existing bathroom tiles.

Cabuchon staff made detailed notes of her requirements, including the access restrictions associated with the narrow door. Some careful calculations satisfied the team that the Imersa could be made to fit through the door if it were made with some modifications to the foot arrangement.

The team also worked with a sample of the ceramic tiles and used computer colour matching to ensure the side panel would precisely match it. The panel – covering the bath’s front and two ends – would be made in a pale green with a high gloss finish.

Within its standard pricing, Cabuchon can match the standard colours of most major sanitaryware producers. The team was therefore able to produce the Imersa in a white that exactly matched the colour of Ms L’s accompanying bathroom basin.

The rest of the story is probably best left to Ms L herself.

“Thanks Cabouchoniers one and all! 

 “At 65 years of age but still an outdoors junkie, a shower after a long day just doesn’t cut it! My two replacement knees and a hip cycle and ski well enough but make for difficulty getting out of my lovely old bath! Enter Cabuchon into the equation and Oh! My goodness!  

“Our first meeting left me in no doubt about the way forward, and I am now the delighted owner of an immaculate hand built Imersa Soaking Tub. It was colour matched to perfection with existing sanitary ware and wall and floor tiles, and installed with extreme care and technical expertise by ‘Logic’ of Appleby-in-Westmorland.  

“The whole process has been seamless and highly professional.  Cabuchon and Logic showed real joined-up thinking to ensure a good outcome. Everyone has been friendly, helpful, courteous, patient and knowledgeable; no issue or question has been too much trouble to solve. My fitter needed technical back-up on installation day as my old cottage has not a single straight line in it, and the solution was a collaborative exercise between high-end professionals.  

“Cabuchon combine gorgeous old-fashioned values with cutting-edge design and build skills. It is a winning formula. As my Yorkshire Granny would have said…”you get what you pay for!”
