Kohler brings strength and a subtle finish to the bathroom with Titanium …

Conveying strength and style with an attitude, the new KOHLER Titanium finish is a stunning addition to any modern
bathroom.

With deeper, richer tones than polished chrome it retains the shine and reflection of chrome while providing the perfect foil for other favourite finishes for the bathing space such as timber, stone and ceramics.

Typical of the look is the bathroom pictured, showing Kohler’s new- release Composed Titanium tapware teamed with pared-back stone benchtop, timeless penny round ceramic wall tiles and convincingly realistic timber ceramic tiles. The result is timeless, covetable style in the bathroom!

Composed Titanium tapware

This beachside home’s bathroom features the Composed tapware in new Titanium finish.

Composed is Kohler’s award-winning basin and showering tapware in the new Titanium PVD finish (International Red Dot Design Award). PVD technology – Physical Vapour Deposition – enables luxury metal finishes to be applied to solid brass tapware by vapourising the finish and then molecularly bonding it to the chrome surface. The result is a tarnish, scratch and corrosion resistant finish that exceeds industry standards and carries a 15-year warranty.

Other fittings in the bathroom include the Kohler Parliament benchtop basin and the Rain Duet Shower column, with Katalyst technology that delivers a luxurious and drenching rainshower experience while using less than 9 litres of water a minute. Katalyst technology is a revolutionary air induction system that injects 2.2 litres of air into every 9.4 litres of water, creating larger, fuller water droplets, which retain heat for longer, creating a full, enveloping shower experience.

Parliament Basin

The Parliament countertop basin’s square lines pair perfectly with the Composed tapware design aesthetic.

RainDuet Shower Column

The multi-purpose RainDuet Shower Column with Square Overhead Shower brings the best of both worlds. The overhead RainCan showerhead features Katalyst air-infused showering technology.

A space-saving essential for compact spaces, is Kohler’s Panache wall-faced toilet suite. By concealing the cistern within the wall space the perception of spaciousness can be achieved.

Panache Wall Faced Toilet Suite

The Panache Wall Faced Toilet Suite is a space-saving winner in both form and function.

Panache Wall Faced Toilet

The Panache Wall Faced Toilet comes with bevel or oval chrome flushplate options.

To complete the look, and maintain the design aesthetic, Kohler’s Singulier bathroom accessories have been used throughout.

Details that count … choosing bathroom fittings

Details that count … choosing bathroom fittings

Renovating a bathroom? Or just wanting a quick, inexpensive refresh??

An eye for detail is key to both, especially when it comes to the smaller, more functional elements.

By choosing bathroom fittings – such as towel rails, soap dishes, toilet roll holders – that both match each other and complement existing tapware, there is a sense of cohesion and flow introduced to the space.

When renovating choose a tapware design that has matching fittings – the profiles of the towel rails and soap dish, for example, match those of the basin, bath and shower taps.

And for a quick refresh on an existing bathroom, choose some new bathroom fittings that reflect the general theme of the space – traditional or retro, minimalist or contemporary??

And even more importantly perhaps – select quality bathroom fittings that won’t tarnish or corrode. Kohler’s bathroom fittings are of solid brass construction with tarnish and corrosion-resistant bright chrome finish.

Kohler’s top five bathroom collections…

Kohler’s top five bathroom collections…

We tend to agonise over the major fixtures of a new bathroom – type of bath, shape of tapware, countertop or undermount basin – but the smaller details, the ones that pull the whole look together, can often be overlooked.

Bathroom accessories – towel rails, soap holders, toiletries shelves, tumblers and toothbrush holders, robe hooks and even toilet tissue holders – can be the key to a beautiful bathing space. By choosing accessories with the same profile, one that emulates that of the tapware, the space will acquire a sense of flow – a harmonious, cohesive aesthetic.

Kohler recognises this and has numerous accessory collections to suit all of its tapware ranges. There is sure to be a design to suit any style of bathroom.

The current top five accessory collections are:

Toobi

Simple, modern, organic in its form – Toobi would suit a bathroom with natural finishes such as timber and stone.
