Bathrooms have become important living spaces where we go to unwind and relax every day. Which is why when putting the space together, innovative design and high functionality are key qualities to look out for. Achieve the perfect balance between eye-catching aesthetics and cutting-edge technology with our bathroom design checklist.
Shower Enclosures or Shower Curtains?
Making the choice between glass shower enclosures or curtains can be a challenge. On one hand, curtains are more homey, and are easy to personalize and change around. On the other, glass is practical, it will last longer, and design-wise it’s more contemporary. Both have their strengths, and so it all comes down to your design and function needs and what goes best with the over-all look of your bathroom.
Aesthetically-pleasing wash basins and mixers
In choosing a wash basin mixers, take into consideration how you can use water with more awareness and make your consumption more efficient. A piece like Axor’s Starck Organic wash basin mixer provides several ergonomic and economic solutions: separating controls for volume and temperature and an ergonomic design where the hands are right where the water emerges. With a unique organic-minimalist design by renowned designer and architect Philippe Starck, this is an innovative addition to your bathroom that’s environmentally sound without sacrificing design.
But when it comes to jaw-dropping design, it’s definitely Axor Starck V that pushes boundaries. Inspired by the idea of a vortex that brings water to the foreground, this transparent wash basin mixer creates the illusion of free-flowing water. For those who really put a premium on artistry, the Starck V adds a strong conceptual foundation to the mix of design and functionality.
A unique shower head
The bathroom is traditionally an isolated space, but why not bring it to the 21st century by adding sophisticated, aesthetically-driven pieces? The Axor LampShower is perfect for that. Developed by Japanese design studio Nendo, it’s a piece that makes your bathroom really look and feel like a comfortable living space. Instead of traditional shower designs which tend to be stiff, this LampShower has a wide-rimmed shower crest and warm ambient lighting that add a heightened sensual dimension to your shower space. It’s the perfect frame for a space you can use to unwind after a long day.
Controlling the temperature of shower water has become a vital feature. From a design perspective, opt for concealed thermostats like Hansgrohe’s ShowerSelect Thermostats that come in white and black high-quality, scratch-resistant, durable glass. They’re wall-mounted, with Select buttons to control 2 outlets, and include a safety stop at 40°C—they’ll blend right in to the aesthetics of your bathroom space.
A Bath Tub Packed with Features
When we talk of relaxation in the bathroom, the first thing that comes to mind for many is the bath tub. And while you’re going several steps further with your shower and wash basin mixers, your bath tub shouldn’t lag behind. Kaldewei’s Sound Wave plays audio files wirelessly from any Bluetooth-enabled device and can be gently felt through the water—you can literally immerse yourself in your favorite songs.
