Bathroom and kitchen surface manufacturer Rearo has relaunched its exclusive Selkie range of bathroom wall panels with 15 unique new designs in the 30-strong collection. The Glasgow-based producer of high pressure wall panels and kitchen surfaces has also added to its Tradeline range, with four new designs.
The relaunch of the Selkie range follows months of research and creative innovation, that included sending a consultant to the Milan Fashion Week earlier this year to explore new looks and trends that have been incorporated into the Selkie range. According to Rearo, bathroom and kitchen designs operate in a three-year cycle and, in order to remain ahead of fashion trends and to ‘future engineer’ its ranges, the company carries out extensive research, consulting with professionals in the home décor and retail fashion industries, including clothing.
Then main influences in the new Selkie range include Japandi – a fusion of Japanese and Scandinavian influences – green/grey, salmon pink, gold accents, dark slate, terrazzo stone and concretes. The panels provide a ‘calm’ and ‘serene’ foundation for bathroom projects, creating a minimalist backdrop or setting the tone for standout feature walls, according to Rearo.
Selkie panels are laminate-faced decorative panels suitable for bathrooms, shower areas, and wet rooms, with an exterior-grade MDF core, which serve as an alternative to wall tiles. Manufactured in Scotland, they are available in square edge or tongue and groove. According to Rearo, the standout feature of the panels is their versatility, easily adapting to different spaces with custom-made trims. Key benefits include a 100% waterproof system, British manufacturing, a 10-year guarantee, minimal maintenance, and easy installation.
Graham Mercer, MD of Rearo, said: "We have always been committed to pushing the boundaries of design and functionality and the relaunch of our Selkie range is a testament to our dedication to providing our customers with cutting-edge, aesthetically pleasing options. Our design team has worked tirelessly to create a collection that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of our customers. We understand that every individual has a unique vision for their space, and the expanded Selkie range ensures that there is something for everyone."
