Modern Baths and Basins – Adding Mixers to the Mix

modern baths and basins

Looking to transform your existing bathroom? Changing your taps and mixers is a  simple and effective design trick for modern baths and basins. These seemingly small changes can dramatically update, revive, and modernise your bathroom with a big impact. Building your bathroom from scratch? Mixers are an intrinsic consideration in the overall mix of functional and design elements.

At DADO, we have stepped into the mix with our stunning range of Aqualine mixers to complement our modern baths and basins. Look no further than our gleaming square and round bathtub and basin mixers to add that touch of finesse to the visual harmony and functionality of your contemporary bathroom.

The right style

Although mixers are relatively small investment pieces, they are an integral design component in achieving the desired style of your bathroom. If you have chosen a modern style when it comes to your large investment pieces and finishes, then you need to choose mixers with a modern twist to seamlessly enhance the design. Mixing modern bathtubs and basins with retro mixers can be quite tricky and people often get it very wrong.

Modern bathrooms, by definition, are unfussy and calming to the eye. That certainly doesn’t mean you are restricted when it comes to options. Modern mixers come in a variety of styles and finishes – from square and round, curvy and angular, to slim-line and substantial – all adding to the overall sleek and minimalist style you are after.

If you want your bathroom to make a statement – you need to be style savvy when it comes to the selection of mixers for your modern space. Pairing modern mixers with modern baths and basins will achieve unity of form and function.

The right size

modern baths and basinsIn the world of bathroom mixers, size makes a difference.. It is not a one-size-fits-all game. Modern baths and basins have undergone a huge evolution and mixers have kept up. Modern basins especially, have earned the title of becoming fashionable bathroom features, unlike the drop-in, under-counter variety that we grew up with. Style trends have elevated basins to sit on top of vanity counters and be appreciated in all their design glory. This means you will need a taller mixer for beauty and function to work together.

DADO’s Aqualine mixers perfectly accommodate the natural flow of water into your modern basins with grace.

Both our square and round mixers come in 2 height options – high or low – giving you flexibility to create a beautiful and user-friendly bathing space.

The right shape

modern baths and basinsAll those who appreciate linear, structural design will love DADO’s Aqualine square mixers. Thanks to their geometric lines, they make an unforgettable and bold impression in your modern bathroom. Perfectly suited for rectangular shaped bathtubs and basins. 

Modern lines can also have a softer appearance. DADO’s Aqualine round mixer, features a  graceful design that represents modern individualism in your bathroom space. They are a stunning match for both oval and round shaped bathtubs and basins.

Aqualine square and round bath and basin mixers are crafted to easily coordinate with any modern bath and basin. Their chrome–plated and high quality finish will create a striking silhouette, adding a contemporary wow-factor and designer touch, backed by a 5 year warranty.

DADO – The right choice

Freestanding Bathtubs: DUBAI – Where Luxury and Glamour Meet

freestanding bathtubs


From the biggest mall to the tallest building in the world, the dynamic city of Dubai never fails to impress. From supercars to solid gold cappuccino foam, it is ever evolving as a celebrity city. It is no wonder that the stylish Dubai freestanding bathtubs and basins from DADO have come under the spotlight and taken centre stage – following in the footsteps of the iconic city they are named after.

Dubai is renowned for its forward-thinking architecture and extravagant lifestyle embodied by the Burj Al Arab, the only 7-star hotel in the world. Nicknamed the ‘playground of the rich and famous,’ Dubai is certainly a city of contrasts, balanced by vibrant cultures that live and work together and grounded by a robust religious community. It really is the key Middle Eastern metropolis.

DADO’s freestanding bathtubs are the epitome of innovative design and ingenuity. It is this bold ‘outside-the-box’ philosophy that is seen nowhere more clearly than in the smooth curves of the Dubai bath, where 5-star luxury and glamour meet.

One-of-a-kind glamour

There is no denying the unique quality, glitz and glamour of a city that arises out of the desert on one side and boasts the sea on the other side.

This feeling translates into the beautifully designed Dubai freestanding bathtub, made from our own unique DADOquartz material, which offers pure and seamless glamour.

Of course, not everyone can hop on a private jet and sip champagne all day, but with a DADO bathtub and an imagination, the experience can come pretty close.

Perfectly designed for comfort, the wider shape of Dubai freestanding bathtubs will wrap you in extravagant luxury.

The fast-paced lifestyle of Dubai slows down as the sun sets over the Persian Gulf coast.

What to look out for in a good quality bath

Quality is a huge determining factor when it comes to the purchase of long-term investment items such as a bathtub. In the purchase of items such as this, it is in the consumer’s best interest to do thorough research about the options that they have available to them. This includes assessing the quality of the products to ensure that they will, indeed, last as long as you expect them to. It would be a dangerous assumption to make if you consider your perceived quality to equate to true quality without examining your options.

The quality of a product refers to the calibre of that item as compared to its available alternatives in the market. It is where durability and composition meet to, not only meet customer expectations but to effortlessly exceed them. Quality is the difference between buying a bathtub every few years because it has cracked, chipped or otherwise deteriorated in its short lifespan, and enjoying your bathtub for more than 20+ years.

The key criterion to consider when making a bathtub purchase is the material from which it is made. The material options available in the market include plastic (ABS), acrylic, cast-iron, enameled steel, cultured marble, proprietary composites, and stone. For the purpose of this article, we will be comparing the proprietary composite DADOquartz with other solid surface materials in the high-end of the spectrum that one would consider when finally building one’s dream bathroom space.

To ensure that the product you are buying is of a high-quality one needs to consider characteristics such as ‘full-bodied’, ‘solid body’ or solid surface within the bathtubs.

  • Ensure the product has full-bodied construction

Full-bodied construction means that the product is made of the same material through and through. If you were to cut the product in half across any axis, you will find the same material on the inside as on the outside. You cannot go wrong with stone bathtubs in this criterion.

Full-bodied products are made from granite, marble, onyx, travertine, basalt or sandstone. These bathtubs are truly one of a kind and they have the most full-bodied construction because they are carved from a single solid piece. This makes them one unique work of art but a pricey one at that.

A more affordable and equally full-bodied material would be proprietary composites. These are stone, mineral and resin mixtures that are moulded into a single solid bathtub like DADOquartz bathtubs. Full-bodied bathtubs are made of a non-porous material with no fissures, veins or other imperfections.

Figure 1: DADOquartz solid material with no fissures, veins or pores

Some composites, however, do not completely qualify as full-bodied. This is because it is made from a material such as crushed fillers mixed with resin, set and then followed up with a gel coat. The material is quite durable, but should the product become scratched it would be irreparable and it would also be revealing the often-unpleasant subsurface material.

Figure 2: Other solid material with fissures, veins and pores – the surface can crack or break easily.

If you find that the product has differing materials in other areas, this could mean irreparable cracks or that the structural integrity of the article could be compromised.

  • Surface coatings

This criterion investigates the true surface of the product and scrutinises the thickness of the product’s rim. Judging this measure ensures that the surface that you have associated with quality is truly the material that the product was fashioned from and not simply a coating to cover up a different material. What you can do to verify this is to have a look at the bottom and the side of the products to see that there are no colour and material variations.

The surface of a bathtub or basin will almost always look smooth and even, as this is part of the customer’s expectations, which breeds perceived quality. However, this smoothness needs to be consistent throughout the product’s surface. If you turn a basin upside-down and find bubbles, veins, and crevasses in the material, this should be a red flag.  Bubbles show that the fibre matrix is not a stable as it should be, this could lead to cracking and product failure in some cases. It would also be possible that one of these bubbles could show up on the surface of the product at a later stage.

Most bathroom ware products made from solid material are typically layered with a gel-coat finish which is equivalent to a paint finish. This also allows these products to be manufactured in a range of solid colours and with a high gloss finish. Although scratches on this surface can be buffed out, with time, the gel-coat finish, as with all paint finishes,  can become brittle and expose the material underneath, leading to cracks. This material doesn’t stand up as well as proprietary composites like DADOquartz that has no additional coating on the products because of the quartz material used in manufacturing. The DADOquartz bathtubs and basins are non-porous meaning that they are free of hairline cracks, ensuring a surface that is resistant to micro-organisms and bacterial growth, easy to clean and silky smooth to the touch.

Figure 9: Example of visible coating

The quartz used in DADOquartz bathroom ware is a high-quality stone that is crushed and mixed with resin and minerals and then moulded into a single solid piece. This piece undergoes extensive tests to ensure that there are no fissures, veins or other imperfections that could compromise the strength or appearance of the product. This results in a durable, long-lasting, scratch and stain resistant bathtub that has no need for any additional treatment or coatings.

  • Product Thickness

When it comes to the thickness of the bathtub an easy way to compare the strength to weight ratio of a bathtub is to look at the thickness of the bathtub’s rim and waste. Although styles and product designs may differ to accommodate details such as shape or an overflow system, material with high strength characteristics will be able to produce very thin bathtubs without any concern.  DADOquartz bathtubs are available with a  rim width as thin as 10mm, an illustration of the material’s strength. The manufacturer of DADOquartz bathroom ware is able to produce exceedingly slim bathtubs without compromising the structural integrity of the bathtub due to the unwavering strength and resilience of the material.

Maintaining quartz – Looking after your DADOquartzBathroom Fittings

maintaining quartz

Maintaining Quartz is not as sophisticated as you may think. In fact, you may already have everything you need to look after your DADOquartz fittings right under your kitchen sink

Aimed at homeowners, designers and architects alike, we strive to bring you the latest trends along with practical advice on all things ‘quartz’ through our monthly Blog. Last month, we focused your attention on adding a stylish basin to your modern bathroom. Looking beyond the purchase of a stunning bath fixture, your attention will surely be drawn to maintaining quartz bathroom fittings. The answer, in short, is that with regular cleaning, maintaining your bathtub or basin is relatively simple. It all boils down to the materials you use to maintain quartz surfaces. Read on, as we recommend materials to clean and look after your DADOquartz bathroom fittings with, as well as serving a precaution for chemical concoctions to stay clear of.

Maintenance is as ‘simple as soap’

At DADO, we manufacture our entire range of bathtubs and basins from our unique DADOquartz, an engineered stone made from resin, quartz and other natural materials. Keeping a clean, hygienic surface ranks high in a customer’s mind when purchasing a luxurious bathtub or basin. The nonporous element of quartz will ensure that bath fittings will not absorb any liquids, limiting maintenance to a surface clean. Most cleaning will just require a cotton cloth and some mild soap after each use. Washing your DADOquartz surface in warm water will help to get rid of marks and residue left behind. Rest assured, personal hygiene products and cosmetics will not damage the surface. By devoting routine cleaning to your DADOquartz fittings, you can keep your bathtubs and basins polished to perfection, and as spotless as when it first lit up your bathroom space.

AvoidAny Petroleum or Acidic based cleaners which will leave a greasy appearance!


Tougher Stains are “handy” to clean too!

Maintaining quartz bath fixtures does come with the bonus of stain and scratch resistance. However, they are not indestructible! For more stubborn stains you can use our specially formulated DADO Surface Cleaner included in your purchase (delivered with the product). Removing stains caused by the buildup of hard water or cosmetics can be achieved with a damp sponge and a mild multi-purpose cleaner such as Handy Andy. Just like your kitchen countertop, applying circular motions thoroughly over the affected area will eventually remove stains and restore your bath fixture to its spotless finish. Should you ever encounter a scratch on the surface of your DADO bathtub or basin, it can easily be removed using “wet n dry 400 grit” sandpaper. Apply with water and gently sand out the scratch.


Avoid – Harsh Cleaning Products containing Ammonia or Bleach when maintaining quartz. In addition, do not use products containing trichlorethane or methylene chloride, such as paint stripper.



Consistently at the forefront of luxury bathroom ware in South Africa, DADO has been manufacturing and maintaining high-quality freestanding bathtubs and basins since 2002. Applying our unique DADOquartz material by hand to every design, each customer is guaranteed a timeless masterpiece that is exceptionally strong, hygienic and naturally beautiful.

Having invested in a freestanding bathtub for your bathroom, the addition of a stylish basin to your modern space can better reflect your bathrooms overall aesthetic.

Both masterpieces highly complement each other and can convert your drab bathroom into a stunning modern space. Towards the end of 2017, we touched on the history of quartz design while drawing inspiration for remodeling your bathroom going forward. As we enter into 2018, we cannot overemphasize enough, adding a stylish basin to your bathroom project, guaranteeing that it will have a dramatic effect on the look and feel of your bathroom. Basins have outgrown their purpose as a mere functional necessity to wash your hands and face – they are a key design element in your home and will remain relevant for years to come.

Emerging freestanding Bathroom Trends

freestanding bathroom

A Freestanding bathroom continues to play a central role in the shift in lifestyle design, and from the sketches of the world’s top designers, we are witnessing the emergence of beautiful features with a great deal of individuality.

In our previous Blog article, we discussed bathroom remodelling tips for homeowners that are set to become the emerging trends of 2018. Following on from this, we explore the emerging freestanding bathroom trends that are dominating the minds of designers, architects, and homeowners, and playing a key role in this exciting market. The purpose of a bathroom has, up until recent times, been purely seen as a functional area, a place to shower and bathe and get on with the day. However, people have gradually grown an appreciation of the bath space as something much more than that – a place of relaxation, wellness and rejuvenation. This has led to an emergence of contemporary trends that treat the bathroom as a personal sanctuary, an escape from the pressure and stresses of daily life.

Seeing the wider picture in the home.

The bathroom space is no longer a humble box room, and homeowners are now sensibly investing in freestanding bathroom appliances that transform the shape of their entire home.

Merging your bathroom to the Master Bedroom

While freestanding bathrooms have always proved popular with both the elite and the masses, their look and feel have evolved significantly in the 21st century. Gone are the days of the cast iron baths, which were both bulky and strenuous to maintain. In its place, there has been an emergence of both contemporary and chic freestanding tubs and basins. The classic Victorian has also been given a refreshing overhaul with a more minimalist design that still maintains its luxurious feel, and sits perfectly in the master bedroom. The Victoria Bath, from DADO’s Classic Range, is a seamless example of this.

Natural Stone Finishes to the fore

With an emerging design of freestanding bathroom finishes blending into the greater environment of the bathroom, stone and natural finishes are becoming more popular. In particular, quartz and other resin materials create a natural stone appearance that is incredibly strong and crafted to sit as ‘works of art’ in the bathroom.


With a Standard, City, and Classic freestanding bathtub and complementary basin range, DADO is at the forefront of the latest bathroom trends and have a design solution for every bathroom.  Using the latest manufacturing technology and innovation, Dado’s freestanding bathtubs and basins are manufactured from our own unique DADOquartz material. We are known for our timeless sophisticated designs like the Acanthus, Moloko and Deonne bathtubs and complementary basins. As a testament to the exceptional durability of all our products, we back up our work with a 25 Year Warranty on all baths and basins.
