Limited edition carbon fiber bathtub

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Carbon fiber is a material usually used in cars. That’s what makes them so light but still so strong and durable. Recently, designers have tried to incorporate the same material into furniture. One of the most impressive creations is the Corpo Celeste bathtub. Th most unusual thing about this bathtub is that it’s made from carbon fiber. This means it’s ready to last for generations to come.

The bathtub is part of a limited edition collection that only produces 51 pieces worldwide. The process of creating the full carbon fiber bathtub lasts 7 months and it’s not an easy one. It involves high technical prowess with pure carbon as the starting material the carbon is then turned into fine fibers with a diameter of 0.003 to 0.005 mm (3-5 micron) using a special technique. The final product is extremely durable, light and resistant to chemicals and harsh temperatures.

The bathtub is finished with with a surface coating found in luxury cars that only makes it look better and better. Each bathtub is handmade with extreme precision and carries an individual authenticity certificate.

 The tub is 2,43m long, 1,23m wide und 0,64m tall, and has a 330 litres capacity. The design is still in the first phase and there are no details related to the price yet. Hopefully there will be more than just 51 such pieces.{found on corcel}

The Luxury Bathroom

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

From tiny powder rooms to wide-open masters, bathrooms are becoming the sexiest spaces in the house

The bathroom is a high-traffic area and one that guests are likely to see, and yet when decorating, it can easily be overlooked. At its core, the lavatory is a utilitarian space but as author Samantha Nestor says, “People are using the bathroom as an oasis once again, and learning that you don’t have to be governed by any of the rules.” In her book, The Luxury Bathroom, Nestor explores what makes this essential room so inspiring. It’s become a lavish spa-like place, a welcoming spot for guests, a place to take risks and make clever design decisions, as well as the most personal space in the home. Whether these rooms stand out for their opulence, or wow us with their streamlined simplicity, one thing is clear: The bath is becoming an irresistible retreat. In our preview of the book, you’ll see that Nestor has indeed chosen “the spaces with the most imaginative solutions to different problems and places and that people would aspire to have in their own homes,” because unlike reading rooms or walk-in closets, “Everybody has a bathroom.”

5 Tips for Eco-Savvy Bathrooms

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

 

Did you know a leaky toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water per day? So fix it quickly, says Mary Jo Peterson, CKBD. Here are some other easy ways to go green:

Replace Faucets
Check out new, attractive motionactivated styles for residential sinks to help conserve water. In the shower, try a much-improved aerator. (Now it will rinse the shampoo out of your hair!)

Change Lightbulbs
Spend a bit more up front on fluorescents, and you’ll reap the rewards of energy savings and good color rendering for years to come. Bulbs now come in a variety of shapes, too.

Ventilate
If renovation is the plan, talk to your contractor about ways to move air, odors and moisture. (And avoid mold growth in an attic or garage by making sure vents dump outside.)

Reduce
When redesigning, don’t insist the new toilet or sink be moved to the opposite side of the room. Use less construction materials by keeping water and waste lines in the same place.

Creative Ideas for a Charming Bath

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Rustic Furniture
Vanities that look like dressers, ornate wood-frame mirrors and upholstered chairs can give an intimate charm to the bathroom. Are you an avid DIYer? Retrofit a salvaged desk or farm table with a sink fixture.

Skip Sleek
Pass on brushed metal or clear glass storage accessories and opt instead for woven baskets or painted antiqued boxes to stash extra towels and toiletries.

Be Artful
Grace the walls with groupings of art in delicate frames. (Although we don’t recommend putting treasured photos or pricey items in a bath due to the potential for water damage.)

Warm your Toes
Radiant-heat flooring not only keeps your tootsies cozy on cold days, it can also help lower heating bills. Check with a contractor to learn the options for the type and installation method that’s right for your home. Baths are a good candidate for radiant-heat floors, since tile is one of the most efficient conveyors of heat created by a subfloor system. (Wood or laminate are okay too, but act as mild insulators against the radiant heat.)

Express Yourself
Have a small collection of vintage tins or ceramic vases? Displayed on a shelf they add personal flair and warmth to a powder room.

Take the Paper Route
In the bath, one roll of wall covering is often all you’ll need. And don’t worry about the damp environment ruining your wallpaper. Today’s designs are made to resist humidity.
