Outlined Bathroom Fixtures Mix Form & Function

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

There is a raw beauty in the shape of certain household objects often masked in modern design – these objects, by contrast, show off both their outside lines and internal workings.

From Althea Ceramica: “Outline is an impassioned tribute to the style and the spirit of the 60’s. Forms never before seen, unusual, characterized by an “emptying” of volumes which gives life to a design, or better a concept, from which spring interesting aspects regarding living the bathroom environment and its protagonists.” Read more »

Modular Ceramic Tile Fixtures for a Flexible DIY Bathroom Design

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

We tend to think of tile as a material layer of infill inside of a bathroom or other space, something that hugs the wall and fades to a background pattern against the fixtures and architectural elements of a room.

These ceramic tiles by Casanova ID, however, have distinct functions while fitting in with the standard sizes of available tile using typical dimensions. Their purposes range from towel hooks, writing boards, air vents and more. Read more »

Stealth Bathroom with Wood Shelves

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

hidden-bathroom-fixtures-design

Sure, a bathroom is a sometimes-unsightly necessity for any home – but its interior can at least be made modestly more minimalist by hiding the essential fixtures when not in use, and more modern and comfortable through the use of linear and repetitive wooden design objects.

Clean and contemporary, a series of fold-up solid-wood shelves hide a concealed sink and disguise the toilet. Even when opened and in operation, the entire aesthetic – designed from start to smooth finish by Rapsel – is a convincingly pleasant balance of coziness, usefulness and cleanliness. Read more »

Lighting for the Modern Bathroom

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Bathroom lighting is more than a necessity for every bathroom. Bathroom Lighting is now more complex as bathrooms need many levels of lighting with different functions such as showering, bath area, styling and the sink area for daily tasks. A good lighting design requires multiple lighting types and styles for the highest impact. Task lighting is one of the most important types of lighting for the bathroom, and should be addressed with a lighting scheme for the vanity. Ambient lighting is typically provided by ceiling fixtures, and is especially important in the bath because of varied mixtures of materials and finishes, many of them shiny surfaces like wall tile, floor tile and chrome faucets.

Bathroom Fixtures

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

Even though the bathroom is a small space in the home, it needs to house a great deal of fittings and fixtures. Make yourself familiar with all the different types of bathroom fixtures required for a successful bathroom.
They usually consist of a wc or toilet, a wash hand basin or vanity unit, a bath tub, and a shower. There are so many variables on each and every fixture, some companies design complete ranges of product that combine together to create an excellent designer bathroom look and makes choosing fixtures easy, but depending on the type of space you have and the water pressure system, whether you are renovating or starting from new, these ranges or collections sometimes won’t fit or suit the existing space and systems that you have. You still need to learn all about the fixtures to ensure you make the correct design decisions for your bathroom.

WC or Toilet Pans  The pan is the main structure of the toilet, it holds the water, creates the space for the seat and attaches to the cistern to enable the water to flush through it. There are three different types of the wash down pan. They have the S, P and skew types of trap.

WC or Toilet Seats This is an important feature in a bathroom as it provides comfort for the user. It sits on the toilet pan and usually has a lid.

WC or Toilet Cisterns The cistern is where the water is stored for the flush of the WC or toilet.

Basins and Materials There are numerous types of basins, which are used to wash hands in and they are made in a number of different materials. Sometimes the basin will be fixed into a joinery unit that may have drawers and or cupboards, this is called a vanity unit. A basin may be fixed into a joinery unit; hung on the wall or be self-set on a pedestal. They are constructed of various materials, the most common is porcelain. It is important when selecting the basin type to think about the taps or faucets that you are going to use, as this will dictate what type of basin you can install.

Baths and Bath Tubs The bath or bath tub is a necessity if you have young children as well as being a luxury item for adults. We think it is a simple item by when you go to buy one, you will be inundated with questions about what type you want. Find out some more information on baths and bath tubs.

Showers Showers can be a ready made kit or can be built to your needs and specifications. They can be designed for one or more people and numerous finishes are available to use.

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.
