Like kitchens, bathrooms are an area of the home where there are a multitude of surfaces and textures - something that invites a higher level of creativity. We spoke to Heirloom International about the vast possibilities of bathroom design, combining complexity with creativity to create beautifully serene spaces.

Whether it’s a high-end home or a property more modest in proportion, the kitchen and bathrooms are areas where the ‘wow’ factor comes into play more than ever before. The bathroom is in itself a focus point but should also set of and elevate the total design concept of the home.

“These are two rooms of the home where the level of design required is much more significant than other areas where there is less functionality and generally a lot less surface materials  and textures,” Heirloom International’s Graham Rea says.

 

“Bathroom design is always about trying to find that perfect balance between design and functionality as well as creating spaces that blend seamlessly with the architectural style and interiors of the home.

 

“Bathrooms are Heirloom’s core focus, with our products offering clients and designers a wide range of pieces covering various finishes within defined style groupings so our products become key design elements for the bathroom. With so much choice in this market, we are always focused on providing ranges where individual components can come together, working as individual design elements in their own right but also working harmoniously as a whole.”

Heirloom International is a long established and leading manufacturer and distributor of bathroom products in New Zealand. “Across our long history, a central aspect of our success has been a focus on creating bathrooms with style - offering the highest quality and design excellence. Heirloom products are well known for reliability and quality which means they will deliver both on style and performance demanded in the bathroom space”

 

Today’s bathroom is more frequently seen as a place of serenity; a personal space in which to switch off at the end of the day, and a place that invokes a spa-like environment. “There is an increased focus on the sensory experience with products like rain showers or towel warmers which feature in the Heirloom range. The bathroom experience is also about the aesthetic and the use of a palette of materials to evoke a certain mood - something increasingly important in contemporary bathrooms.

 

“Emerging trends at the moment are focused on muted tones, earthy and natural, and on textured surfaces. It’s a sophisticated feel in a muted palette,” Graham says. “In many cases, individual pieces will be incorporated to create a sense of drama while brushed finishes and earthy colours like gunmetal create a subtle, softer feeling.”

Sculptural elements are also an emerging trend with shape a key focus, Graham says. “Pieces such as the Cubist and Strata Towel Warmers, where a bold form combines with traditional functionality allows for these sculptured elements to work as central design elements. Similarly, the new sculptural Radial basins have a striking curvature and slim profile that offers an elegant, contemporary component.”
