Traditional material meets modern colour palette to reimagine the bathroom space

June 16, 2021

Concrete embodies strength, is adaptable and durable, combining this traditional material with a modern colour element, A Glyde concrete basin is raising the style stakes when it comes to making a statement in the bathroom.

Made in Ireland, every unit is a bespoke, hand-made and hand-finished piece. Glyde Concrete basins deliver excellent value, style and substance. As all Glyde basins are pre sealed, this natural material is then ideal for hard working and busy bathrooms . Glyde can sink into a one piece look to combine the basin and vanity top, or form a pedestal with the concrete basin making a Glyde basin the star of your bathroom.

The Glyde basin collection includes various shapes, colours and sizes. With the August Basin, customers can choose from two height options. The gentle curve brings elegance and sophistication through its style, shape and substance or with The Joseph, which is a space saver sink ideal for tight areas. It has a flat surface to the side of the sink will allow you to either mount a tap on it or use as a surface to keep soap etc.

“Working with Concrete in the home allows your home to have a personality in rooms that sometimes can be overlooked. We spend a lot of time in our bathrooms and it’s where some of our most peaceful and relaxing moments of the day are. Having always loved the use of natural materials in renovations and home builds, Glyde has a nod and respectful link to Ireland’s concrete traditions. The use of concrete in Ireland can be traced as far back as 1850, in the foundations of a bridge crossing the River Glyde, in Dundalk. As the benefits of this material were realised, concrete was increasingly used as a solution to construction problems at the time. Now we are back to using concrete for all its positive factors such as its flexibility in colour change and its hard-wearing properties” explained a spokesperson for Glyde.

Glyde has also partnered with Carbon Offset Ireland to plant one tree for every basin purchased. This will sequester more carbon than used in our production process.
