This dream bathroom features a light and airy design, along with an openness that provides for freedom of movement, as well as a visual appeal. With a comfortable shower area that harmoniously fits in with an atmosphere of well-being, the trend toward more transparency found in other living spaces is also continuing into the evolving world of bathroom design.
Openness and clarity are in demand in homes: An open concept from the living area to the kitchen is a must have. At the same time, indoors and outdoors are converging, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. With their clean design, rooms bathed in light offer a great deal of freedom of movement. The open-floor plan trend in interior design particularly influenced the spacious shower, which is increasingly leaving its mark on the bathroom as a living space.
Shower areas are currently growing more spacious. Floor-level showers blend harmoniously with the surrounding architecture. Large enough for two, this shower is frameless and minimalist, with a nearly invisible glass panel to minimize splashing. A calm color scheme can perfectly combine with authentic materials.
In a time in which so many areas of our life are accelerating, this clarity in bathroom design also means “that this room is becoming more personal and above all a calmer place,” says Design Manager Andreas Diefenbach of Phoenix Design. Calm bathroom architecture is ideally supported by products that harmoniously combine with the entire bathroom design and a minimalist design language. These are, for example, shelves and spray discs made of glass.
“The water experience is developing from a niche in the corner into a holistic experience that fills the room.”Andreas Diefenbach, Design Manager at Phoenix Design
hansgrohe is right in step with the trend, with premium products for the bathroom. The Raindance E overhead shower and the shelf of the ShowerTablet 600 harmoniously integrates the bathroom design into the architecture. This is “through integral reduction,” as the designers from Phoenix Design put it. After all, glass is the material that blends in most naturally with water. Likewise, hansgrohe faucets in the “Modern” style, such as Metris, Talis and Focus , support the trend toward clear design in open-plan bathroom architecture.
“Glass and water are best friends. Like water, glass is something universal that is understood everywhere.”Andreas Diefenbach, Design Manager at Phoenix Design
