Duravit reveals furnishing ideas for small spaces
Dubai, November 12, 2009
Duravit is offering furnishing ideas to tackle unavoidable design challenges due to space limitations, faced by many guest bathrooms and powder rooms, that leave them looking cramped or sparsely furnished.
Duravit has come up with its wide offering of flexible, design-conscious products to overcome these constraints. Depending on the available space, budget and personal preferences, Duravit can transform even the smallest powder room into a comfortable place to unwind.
The washing area is at the epicentre 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.
The Starck 1 range offers great ideas for exclusive guest bathrooms. The barrel-shaped washbasin and furniture unit 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.
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, according to a statement.
The second 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. With a large selection of real-wood veneers, décors and painted surfaces, each bathroom can be furnished according to individual tastes.
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.
Duravit’s new 'Guest Bathrooms' brochure features 32 pages of creative furnishing solutions. The designs shown provide countless tips and ideas to create unique design in the guest bathroom.-TradeArabia News Service
