“With modern life becoming ever-more demanding, it has never been so important to take conscious steps to unwind, decompress, and relax at the end of a busy day.
The strains of the technology-driven, fast-paced world in which we live can often leave us feeling over-worked, stressed out, and desperately seeking a peaceful space in the home.
With thoughtful design, clever product innovations, and careful choices in materials, textures, and colours, you can help your clients transform their bathroom into a place of sanctuary.
The sensation of touch is a fundamental part of our daily experience, and being able to incorporate beautiful textures and natural materials into the design of a bathroom can significantly improve our sense of wellbeing.
With a wide range of materials now available in bathroom design, from glass, metal, stone and wood, both the aesthetic and functionality of the bathroom can provide a sensory experience with every touch.
An example is the new Geberit Sigma21 flush plate, which is available in a range of natural materials to suit every design, from smooth glass to rustic natural slate sourced from Brazil.
Thanks to pioneering smart technology, the use of overpowering sprays or chemicals to mask unpleasant odours can be a thing of the past. Many smart toilets, such as the Geberit AquaClean Mera shower toilet, feature ceramic filter technology which not only eliminate unpleasant odours, but also helps to clean the air and improve air quality.
Specifying smart storage solutions provides an easy step into achieving a clutter-free, calming space for your customers.
Solutions such as wall-hung cabinets to help maximise space, create the illusion of a larger room, and provide a place for everyday essentials.
An easy addition to the bathroom is a hybrid solution, like the Geberit Acanto illuminated mirror cabinet, which not only provides the perfect beauty station with adjustable ambient lighting, but also features much needed storage for toiletries and added benefits such as charging ports.
Specifying the right lighting is another essential element of enhancing wellbeing in the bathroom, and should complement the body’s natural rhythm and moods.
As well as illuminated mirrors, products with built-in orientation lights, such as the Geberit Monolith cistern, are becoming increasingly popular amongst consumers.
Available in a sleek, space-saving design and a range of colours to suit all tastes, the soft glow guides users to the toilet during the night, eliminating the need to switch on bright lights and therefore helping to preserve the sanctity of sleep.
