Demystifying the art of efficient bathroom planning, Kohler offers useful advice and product suggestions to help you make the most of limited space

A sense of order

advertisment

The clever selection of products, coupled with sound advice from a plumbing expert, is the key to a successful bathroom renovation – especially when space is at a premium.

Transforming a small, traditional bathroom into a cosy retreat without making structural modifications can prove a challenge. Bathroomware manufacturer Kohler has some simple and effective design tips to help you achieve a functional, visually pleasing and code-compliant renovation.

The company's bathroom suites are designed to create a unified look. To maximise, and create the illusion of space, Kohler recommends the Odeon suite. Its gentle curves and oval forms offer an uncluttered, functional plumbing solution to bathroom renovation.

The compact, elongated Odeon toilet suite has a space-saving in-wall cistern, and comes with a matching bidet and pedestal basin.

Many traditional bathroom designs have a vanity with a built-in sink. A pedestal basin, however, creates a sleeker, roomier look, especially when combined with wall-mounted cabinetry, which leaves the floor and lower walls clear.

Creating adequate room for bathing often means homeowners are obliged to make structural changes. But many other options exist that don't require the removal of walls.

For example, the durable acrylic Duo rectangular bath by Englefield features combined bath and shower functionality for optimum space saving. Available in two sizes, the Duo bath can be teamed with the Valencia swing glass screen, which, unlike a shower curtain or an opaque screen, acts to visually enlarge the space.

Kohler and Englefield products are available from selected distributors nationwide. For details, phone 0800 100 382 or visitwww.kohler.co.nz orwww.Trendsideas.com/kohler .
