KOHLER’s new slim shower mixer trims offers wider choice

If there is one key trend for bathrooms in 2018 it would be CHOICE. While one person opts for sleek and white, another will crush on personality and patina. Global suppliers such as Kohler have seen the signs and are extending their ranges to ensure we can all stamp our style and character on our interiors.

Kohler Slim Shower Trim

Just as Kohler was one of the forerunners in creating precious metal finishes to its tapware – rose gold, titanium and brushed nickel for example – it has also taken the lead in developing a choice of trims for bath and shower mixers.

With its introduction of new Slim Shower Mixer Trims consumers can now choose between the traditional sized mixers to match their favourite tap and slimmer, sleeker versions. They also have the option of a shower mixer plate with or without diverter.

The new Cuff Slim Shower Trim – with and without diverter

The Slim Shower Mixer Trims have been designed to match some of Kohler’s best- selling polished chrome tapware ranges – Purist, Loure, Aleo, Strayt and Cuff.

In most cases the width of the mixer plate, without diverter, has been reduced by at least 25 per cent – and in the case of the Purist and Cuff mixers these are now a neat 100mm diameter circle.

The aesthetic advantage of the Slim Trims is that the peripheral hardware no longer dominates – which allows the true heroes, such as the showerhead and surface finishes, to shine!

Avid Titanium – Timeless tapware style for the bathroom

Avid Titanium – Timeless tapware style for the bathroom

Our design crush on metals has moved to the bathroom with the style spotlight shining brightly on Titanium – one of the world’s most precious metals. Kohler has been quick to respond, releasing a beautiful set of tapware in a lustrous Titanium PVD finish.

Avid 3TH Basin Set in stunning Titanium PVD finish.

Avid, seriously graceful and sensuously simple, won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2015 for its polished chrome format. Its recreation in Titanium is a sure case of sublime style and perfect timing!

Reminiscent of liquid metal Avid’s gentle, fluid form rises from the benchtop and is stretched to a slender, tapered spout. The lever control is an extension of the body of the tap – no harsh edges, sharp angles or unnecessary embellishment.

Avid Tapware

The Avid Super Tall Basin Mixer – the perfect partner for a vessel or countertop basin!

The Avid collection includes Standard, Tall and Super Tall basin mixers as well as a three-piece widespread model, a wall mount basin mixer and shower mixers. The basin tapware has a 5 star WELS rating, using six litres of water a minute.

The durable, corrosion-resistant Titanium finish of Avid is achieved by virtue of PVD technology (Physical Vapour Deposition). This is a customised finish system that vaporises the finish and molecularly bonds it to the chrome surface. This produces a finish that is tarnish, scratch and corrosion resistant – in fact all Kohler finishes exceed industry standards and carry a 15-year warranty.

The Avid basin tapware is rated a five star WELS using just six litres of water a minute. Avid accessories complete the look and are also available in the Titanium finish.

Kohler features in Interiors Addict bathroom renovation!

Founder and editor of Australia’s most popular interiors blog – INTERIORS ADDICT – Jen Bishop has just completed her own renovation on her recently acquired apartment.

The bathroom and powder room, which was in much need of a makeover, has been transformed with white subway tiles, beautiful beveled pennyrounds, and some very stylish Kohler product including bath, toilet, basin, tapware and accessories!

Jen states that, as a Pom and seven-baths-a-week kinda girl, a large tub was a non-negotiable part of the reno. Hence her bath of choice was the Kohler Evok 1800mm drop-in oval bath, paired with July bath tapware. This is teamed with a Forefront Square basin and matching July basin tapware.
