The bathroom – it’s where the day begins and ends, where we go to relax in a warm, fragrant tub or recharge under a powerful shower. From city apartments to spacious country homes, the bathroom is our refuge. Thanks to today’s innovations in technology and design, a bathroom can become much more – an oasis of luxury, beauty and well-being, whatever its size.
Light up your bathroom
Today’s multifunctional bathroom demands more than one kind of light. Gentet suggests brighter overhead lights in high-use areas, such as the shower and sinks and overhead lights with dimmers elsewhere. Mirrored areas need special attention as retractable overhead lights can cast shadows. Lights placed on the side of mirrors make shaving and makeup application easier and more accurate.
Gentet cautions that bright white walls will reflect even the best lighting in an unflattering way. Choose soft hues, such as the neutrals that are trending today.
The best spas are noted for their simple, Zen-like décor and lack of clutter. Choose drawers to hold every bit of bathroom paraphernalia, leaving only well-designed fixtures visible. GROHE’s full range of accessories adds style and convenience and are available in an array of styles and finishes. Seek out finishes that are easy to clean and that coordinate with the rest of the décor. GROHE offers a range of finishes including GROHE StarLight Chrome, Oil Rubbed Bronze and Brushed Nickel InfinityFinish chrome, Since bathroom wastebaskets can be unsightly, Gentet suggests building a retractable bin into the wall.
Strong design and engineering are key to turning any bathroom into a highly functional and aesthetic retreat. “At GROHE, we believe that our faucets, shower systems and accessories must provide an efficient and enjoyable bathroom experience with options for every need and preference, both in design and functionality,” concludes Dixon. “That combination of form and function is really the key to getting the most out of your bathroom.”
