British bath maker, BC Designs, has launched a new Copper Boat Bath collection.Easily adaptable to both traditional and contemporary spaces, the Copper Boat Bath Collection taps into the trend for metallics.

Made from copper, which is an excellent heat conductor, it will maintain water temperature much longer than other materials - and if you fancy something other than a copper finish it is available in three other warm metallic finishes of Copper/Nickel, Nickel and Tin, prices from £3,599.

Known for its classic white Quarrycast freestandingbathsand basins, Victoria + Albert Baths has just introduced a choice of 194 colourways. Warm to the touch, Quarrycast also retains heat for 60 minutes, ensuring you never step foot into a cool bath.

Rather than painting the exterior of the bath, the actual process of applying the paint to the brand’s material ensures a long-lasting, high-quality matt or gloss finish, from £2,175.
