The possibilities of polymorphic materials are endless – and these technologies are not as far away as they once were.

Consider this application – a simple tub transforms to suit all kinds of needs, all within a single footprint of space. No more separate hot tub or jacuzzi required.

Cozy Library Right In Your Bathroom

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

cozy-library-in-your-bathroom

What do you do while having a bath? Most of us listen to music or read something. A bathroom has become not only a place of hygiene but also a place of relaxation with cool design where you can feel good after a hard day. This conception is right for those who like to relax in the bathroom. The zone of the bathtub is transformed into a stylish library.

Green color is very calming and warm that’s why it was chosen. The first part of the bathroom is quite usual and modern, there’s everything necessary including a shower cabin, washbasins and so on. But the second part is very unexpected. The bathtub zone is made like it’s a very cozy living room with a fluffy armchair and a large bookstand. Enjoy your book!

Modular Ceramic Tile Fixtures for a Flexible DIY Bathroom Design

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

futuristic-sleek-cuved-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 »

GUEST BATHROOMS

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

GUEST BATHROOMS AND POWDER ROOMS PROVIDE A PLACE TO UNWIND. Because of their inherent space limitations, many guest bathrooms and powder rooms face unavoidable design challenges that leave them looking cramped or sparsely furnished. Duravit offers the ultimate solution to these constraints through its wide offering of flexible, design-conscious products. Depending on the available space, budget and personal preferences, Duravit can transform even the smallest powder room into a comfortable place to unwind.
Washing areas for every bathroom
For narrow bathrooms or those with sloping roofs: the diagonal Architec handrinse basin.

The washing area is at the epicenter of the bathroom, and Duravit offers an extensive repertoire — everything from handrinse and built-in washbasins with vanity units to countertop basins and matching consoles in various dimensions and styles — to address this segment. Particularly successful examples include: the Starck 3 washbasin with metal console (which doubles as a towel holder), the Happy D. furniture handrinse basin with rounded vanity unit and the Bacino basin paired with the Fogo furniture console. The Starck 1 range offers great ideas for exclusive guest bathrooms. The barrel-shaped washbasin and furniture unit is already a classic and is available with five attractive surfaces: Macassar, American Walnut, Pearwood and the new White high gloss and Black high gloss finishes.

Duravit also offers uniquely slim handrinse basins for narrow bathrooms or those with sloping roofs: the diagonal Architec handrinse basin with integrated ceramic shelf, the Happy D. handrinse basin with a projection of just 25 cm or the Vero handrinse basin, which is just 25 cm narrow but 45 cm deep.

A multitude of matching mirrors and mirrored cabinets, available with or without lighting, add the perfect finishing touch to the furnishing designed for “mini bathrooms.” Soap dispensers, towel holders, and a wide array of bathroom accessories not only enhance the look of the washing area but also serve a functional purpose.

The matching toilet in either a wall-mounted or free-standing version is an undeniable “must”! Toilets with a particularly short projection are true problem-solvers wherever space is especially tight, while WC seats with the Soft-Close function create additional usage comfort. A urinal, either with or without lid, is an added installation option for male guests. Whether one chooses the smooth curves of the Starck 1 and Happy D. collections or the geometric form of the Starck 3 range is purely a question of aesthetic preference.

Bathroom furniture creates space and a great sense of comfort
Recently, Duravit extended its Fogo furniture range to include a new “semi-high” cabinet.

In terms of furnishings, the guest bathroom meets high scores in the category of comfort thanks to furniture solutions such as shelves, storage surfaces or cabinets, which are available in a variety of dimensions and designs for maximum flexibility, even in the smallest spaces.

For smaller room layouts in particular, Duravit’s creative bathroom furniture ideas are often the only way to create storage space or useful surfaces for everyday bathroom essentials. The 2nd floor shelf with side fixings in chrome, for example, is ideal for holding a visitor’s handbag or for storing towels and other bathroom gadgets.

In terms of comfort and practicality, Duravit’s X-Large collection addresses every important detail. The sleek X-large wall boards are ideal for making use of the otherwise wasted space above the toilet while the X-Large vanity unit with fold-out towel basket offers a practical addition to a high-traffic bathroom.

Recently, Duravit extended its Fogo furniture range to include a new “semi-high” cabinet. At just 25 cm deep, the new Fogo cabinet maintains ample storage space while projecting a small footprint, making it the perfect addition to a narrow space. And, thanks to a large selection of real-wood veneers, décors and painted surfaces, each bathroom can be furnished according to individual tastes.

From the powder room to the second bathroom  
It is undoubtedly possible to transform a few square meters into a truly amazing bathroom.

With the addition of a shower tray, the powder room becomes a fully-functional, comfortable bathroom that, if necessary, can also be used as a second bathroom for overnight guests. With ingenious planning and the right products, it is undoubtedly possible to transform a few square meters into a truly amazing bathroom. And — in order to maintain continuous design throughout the washing area in its entirety, Duravit’s extensive Starck 1, Starck 2, Starck 3, Happy D. and/or 2nd floor collections are just what these bathrooms need.

Duravit’s new “Guest Bathrooms” brochure features 32 pages of creative and impressive furnishing solutions. The designs shown provide countless tips and ideas to create unique design in the guest bathroom.

Vintage And Sculptural Bathroom Design With Cooper Pipes

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

This project is a renovation of a bathroom on the top floor of a late 19th century house located near Amsterdam. The antique 100-year old cast iron enamel clawfootbath and original timber doors are the only remaining elements from the existing bathroom. Even though the bathroom became contemporary with all according features it doesn’t become sterile as many other modern bathrooms. Experiences of nature formed the inspiration: the characteristics of water, the interaction of light and shadows, frost and decay, taking into account the ageing of the space and the materials. Existing materials from the house are continued into the space: terrazzo and plaster ceilings while the original timber doors are painted glossy black to give them a new life.

Ceramic tiles with a floral relief compose the walls. Like the rest of the copperwork, they will age over time taking on a greenish tint. There aren’t traditional fittings in this bathroom. They all are made of copper pipes here and have very unusual shapes. These pipes will also change their looks with age.bathroom design ideas, bathroom design inspirations, classic bathroom design, stylish bathroom design, unique bathroom designs

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.
