White on White … for timeless bathroom style!

Timeless serenity. Classical elegance. White on white is one bathroom trend that’s here to stay says Kohler. White bathrooms are considered as tranquil and efficient today as they were five years ago. Put simply, a white bathroom will not date, and continues to welcome and refresh tired bodies and busy minds.

So if calm and tranquillity top your bathroom wish-list, consider opting for a clean, white-on-white palette and sleek modern style. Smart selections of taps, basins and bath with simple lines will keep your physical space – and your mind – blissfully free of clutter! The all- whites are softened by raw timber flooring and accessories – with a focus on soft lines and fluid curves. Its quintessential simplicity delivers a timeless sophistication.

In this white-on-white palette, Kohler’s choice in tapware is a perfect fit with the overall ambience of the space. Avid features beautifully simple lines that belie the technical prowess of this mixer. With the basin mixer, an internal cartridge, coupled with an aerator, creates excellent water efficiency, limiting flow to just six litres a minute, while the slender design of the handle ensures easy, accurate control of both flow and temperature. The Avid matching shower mixer completes the look.

The Avid basin mixer is paired with the Forefront rectangular countertop basin – a true classic!

Here, the Avid basin mixer is paired with the ever popular Forefront basin with it’s sleek, low profile. The Avid shower mixer with diverter pairs with both the Exhale slide shower (note matching white, silicone, easy-clean spray face which continues the white theme!) and RainCan over head shower for a truly drenching rain-shower experience.

Both the Exhale and RainCan feature Kohler’s Katalyst Air Induction Technology – a patented technology which reduces water consumption while increasing the sense of ‘deluge’ water delivery. These drenching, water-efficient showers – rated 3 star WELS – are produced by injecting two litres of air a minute into the water stream.

For a stand-out bath, the Abrazo is a nautilus-inspired pure white bath in lithocast, a high end acrylic that looks like finely honed stone but is soft on the skin and retains the temperature of the water for longer periods.

The Abrazo Lithocast bath is a focal point in any bathroom.

And the finishing touch is matching Avid accessories which are classically simple and timeless in the style stakes!

The Avid accessories offer a stunning collection of matching towel bars, towel rings and toilet tissue holders.

 

 

Greenery – the 2017 Pantone Colour of the Year – comes to the bathroom!

Kohler and Greenery

Greenery, the fresh, zesty yellow-green that is Pantone Colour of the Year 2017 is set to star in fashion, beauty and lifestyle design applications – and most definitely the bathroom!

A colour that is so closely aligned to nature and its ability to revive and restore, renew and revitalise Greenery is a natural choice for bathrooms and one that will team effortlessly with many colour combinations, and countless finishes.

Kohler’s Toobi collection of tapware is a clever way of introducing this beautiful hue to the bathroom – along with towels, soaps and lush, verdant foliage of course.

The Toobi Tall Basin Mixer features with the Chalice Basin.

While the inspiration for this modernist tapware collection was the original, freeform delivery of water – a bamboo pipe – the final execution is unashamedly contemporary, with a lush green pop of colour at its spout! The result is a tumbling, free flow of water in all its natural beauty – and a hit of the soon to be must-have green as the water leaves the spout, in the form of a small, interchangeable insert fitted inside the spout.

A touch of ‘greenery’ – the Toobi Basin Mixer spout insert.

The Toobi collection comprises a range of 5 star WELS rated basin and tall basin mixers, bath and shower mixers with and without diverter – and accessories.

Double robe hook, double and single towel bar, hotelier shelf and toilet tissue holder are all included in the accessories range with each piece featuring the same tubular styling as the tapware. Very smart!

Very 2017!

Details that count … choosing bathroom fittings

Details that count … choosing bathroom fittings

Renovating a bathroom? Or just wanting a quick, inexpensive refresh??

An eye for detail is key to both, especially when it comes to the smaller, more functional elements.

By choosing bathroom fittings – such as towel rails, soap dishes, toilet roll holders – that both match each other and complement existing tapware, there is a sense of cohesion and flow introduced to the space.

When renovating choose a tapware design that has matching fittings – the profiles of the towel rails and soap dish, for example, match those of the basin, bath and shower taps.

Kohler has numerous designs – from the very contemporary, simple lines of the Toobi (pictured above) and Loure collections to the more glamorous, vintage aesthetics of the Margaux range.

And for a quick refresh on an existing bathroom, choose some new bathroom fittings that reflect the general theme of the space – traditional or retro, minimalist or contemporary??

And even more importantly perhaps – select quality bathroom fittings that won’t tarnish or corrode. Kohler’s bathroom fittings are of solid brass construction with tarnish and corrosion-resistant bright chrome finish.
