Another new design this year focuses on architectural details. Following the trend of black framed doors and windows this shower has a matte black frame that sits on the outside of the glass leaving the inside seam-free and a snap to clean. Zitta’s shower glass is also coated to resist spotting and ease cleaning. The look is perfect for an urban bathroom design that needs a bit of edginess or for an industrial element in other bathroom design styles.
The Suite borrows its elegance from retro and classical bathtubs. Its sinuous lines and the signature fold back edge give it a distinguished look and a strong identity. Further more given that it revisits the classical tub design it fits in a variety of different bathroom decors and styles.
Stone bathtubs are high-end and sophisticated and have designs that usually try to capture the beauty and uniqueness of the material they’re made of as best as possible. We’re so impressed by the looks that we often forget to consider the practical side of such a product. For example this is Boat 50 an oval tub made out of a hollowed stone block. It weighs 500 kg and it requires special so make sure you learn how to clean and maintain it to avoid damage.
We should note however that in order to be successful in re-tiling your tub or shower surround you’re going to want to become familiar with using a wet tile saw (full tutorial available). This process is not hard but it does have a few techniques that will be beneficial if you’re aware of them.
First up this bathroom from American Standard’s luxury line DXV shows how you can combine a traditional bathroom with leading edge bathroom fixtures. Dark gray paneled walls and a herringbone floor set the stage for modern sconces and a floating backlit mirror that sit above a floating vanity. A modern rectangular sink and floating wall unit complete the main section. The wall-mounted toiled is minimalist and helps add a sleek edge to the room.
The Inkstone bathtub by Steve Leung is another example of a product which impresses through simplicity and quality. Its design is refined and elegant and it’s easy to imagine all sorts of sophisticated bathtub surrounds and chic bathroom decors that go with it. We suggest a casual-chic approach.
