About Victorian Bathrooms
Victorian Bathrooms is recognised as South Africa’s specialist supplier of luxury bathroom products in the classic style and is honoured to have supplied prestigious destinations in Southern Africa and abroad. Encapsulated in the words Classic, Timeless, Luxury each apply to our products, our showroom displays, and the service our team provides.
Victorian Bathrooms commenced in 1989, when Lance Goodale identified a demand for traditional bathroom products. There being nothing available locally, he set about sifting through builders’ junk yards and second hand stores, collecting and restoring and manufacturing products to meet the unusual requirements of the projects with which Victorian Bathrooms became involved.
It was not long before Lance’s wife, Margaret, joined him in his quest to discover beautiful classic styled bathroom fixtures and fittings and the restored Victorian clutter gave way to new products, replicating their predecessors but utilising modern technology, manufactured according to Victorian Bathrooms’ requirements locally where possible, but otherwise sourced internationally, for the discerning home owner who is unprepared to compromise.
Victorian Bathrooms has become a second generation family business with Leigh-Anne, Joslyn and Jonothan (three of Lance and Margaret’s four children) now working within the business. Victorian Bathrooms regards all their staff as family, a number of whom have been with the business almost since inception, and together they instil the values for which Victorian Bathrooms is known, ensuring longevity and consistency to strive for excellence.FIND OUT MORE →
