The bathroom has been rid of its wet-room image intended exclusively for personal hygiene for quite some time now. Even in the smallest bathrooms, people are now trying to create an atmosphere that reflects their own personality.
It’s all about achieving a more natural atmosphere in the bathroom to really appeal to the senses. This approach calls for a combination of conventional bathroom equipment such as a WC, washbasin and shower, along with a wide variety of materials on the ceilings, walls and floors, and a selection of accessories.
Create Effects with Materials
Ceramic, wood, natural stone, tiles, glass, wallpaper, and metals are just some of the many materials found in the bathrooms of today. And bathroom designers agree that this is no bad thing. If one thing is clear, it’s that a mix of materials makes it easy to create a cosy ambience and a place for relaxation with a personal touch.
The Ideal Solution to Suit All Requirements
Christoph Behling, Head Design Strategy at Geberit, also agrees with this view: “We don’t impose any rules on our clients. We make sure that there is always something readily available to suit all tastes, all spaces and all budgets. This is exactly why design diversity is so very important in our portfolio of bathroom series.”
Incidentally, the actual equipment design plays something of a subordinate role. It doesn’t matter whether customers opt for clear-cut, straight ceramics or softer, round shapes. The big difference in how everything looks comes from the materials, textures and colours used in the interior design, with the accessories providing the final icing on the cake.
A Mix of Materials is Right on Trend
“In my opinion, matt materials seem to be the finish of choice right now. In other words, materials that are less reflective and therefore less cool. These include brushed metals for taps and actuator plates. Warm, muted tones are also on trend at the moment. Bathrooms like those of twenty years ago with their shiny white tiles and flashy fittings have had their day,” explains Christoph. Whatever your requirements, Geberit is ready with inspiration and solutions.
