Get Big Ideas for Small Bathrooms

Got a small bathroom but don’t want to compromise on style and functionality? When it comes to designing for bathroom sizes – sometimes as little as two to three square metres – creating a classy, on-trend yet functional bathing space can be a challenge!

Here’s a project that faced the same challenge, with a few great ideas that made a huge difference to the family living in this home, in terms of both style and experience.

One of the most common desires of those with a small bathing space is the need for a bath, especially for families with children.

A bath was a “must have” in this bathroom, which turned an everyday bathroom into a luxurious master bathroom exuding sybaritic indulgence. This deeply relaxing hydrotherapy spa bath ticked all the boxes, and when paired with a mixture of Crystal Glass Loft Black subway tiles and large format black Mek Dark tiles, creates an Insta-worthy bathing space!

When designing your compact bathroom, the more floor area that is visible the greater the perception of space.  A wall hung vanity and toilet are both excellent inclusions to achieve this effect.

This bathroom features the innovative Terrace basin with matching wall mounted cabinet, incorporating spacious natural oak integrated storage drawers. Designed by the Jacob Delafon team in France, the Terrace includes the unique “Free Drain” system which is hands free drainage – no centre waste hole required, nor the need to put your hands into the water.

The unique FreeDrain concealed waste keeps your basin minimalist and streamlined.

Paired with the contemporary Avid basin mixer – a Red Dot award-winning tap – and matching Avid bathroom accessories, this bathroom is elevated to rock-star status.

When saving space is a priority, the toilet can be a key factor.  A wall-hung model, with cistern concealed in the wall cavity, will not only take less bathroom space but also creates more visual space by being elevated above the floor.  And for the seemingly impossible dream – having a bidet in a small bathroom – there IS a solution! The Veil Intelligent Wall Hung toilet is the perfect addition to the modern bathroom, featuring integrated bidet and comfort factors including heated seat, heated water wash with varying temperature levels, three wash functions, heated air-drying function, built in deodoriser and LED auto self-cleaning wand to name a few! What more could you want in a small bathroom!

So while space is definitely limited in a compact bathroom, your options for creating a stylish, highly functional bathing space are vast!

Kohler lifts the Veil on smart toilets

Have you heard about smart toilets but wonder what all the fuss is about? Toilets have finally entered the realms of sophisticated design and new generation hygiene…

Introducing the Veil Wall Faced IntelligentToilet

The release of Kohler’s Veil intelligent toilet, in a wall faced design, is the ultimate pairing of pure, ergonomic design and customised personal cleansing, operated  via a touchscreen LCD remote control. The fluid, balanced curves and minimalist design of the Veil Wall Faced intelligent toilet contain some of the most advanced features in optimal toilet hygiene and individual comfort.

Every aspect of the Veil toilet experience is hands free – including an auto, touch-less flush – with a focus on absolute comfort.  The cover and ergonomically designed seat are motion-activated while the temperature of the heated seat can be adjusted for optimal comfort.  And for total peace of mind, the bowl can be LED lit for night time visits.

Combining both a toilet and a modern-day bidet, the Veil’s advanced personal cleansing functions can be customised for water temperature; spray style, position and pressure; plus pulsate and oscillate functions.  The precision air dryer can also be adjusted to personal preferences for temperature.

On sitting down, a fan is activated which draws air from the toilet bowl through a carbon filter to remove odours and help keep the bathroom fresh.

In line with the hands-free design of the Veil – which sports an uber-hygienic rimless bowl – the wand is self-cleaning, using UV light and electrolysed water systems to sanitise its surfaces every 24 hours, which can be pre-set by the owner/user at the point of installation.KOHLER Veil Intelligent Wall Faced toilet

The Veil wall faced intelligent toilet, is a compact toilet with elongated bowl and French curve seat for added room and comfort.  It features an in-wall fully concealed cistern with a 3/4.5L flush.

The Veil is also available in a wall hung configuration.

The ‘unveiling’ of Kohler’s Veil smart toilet takes hygiene and comfort to a new level in terms of luxury and personalised convenience.

The Veil is a self-cleaning wall hung toilet with advanced bidet features controlled by a one-touch remote control. The design of the Veil deserves special mention as its balanced curves and sculpted form inject a sense of beauty into the utilitarian toilet or bathroom space.
