A quick freshen-up or soothing relaxation – a perfect shower area offers both. The trend in new buildings and modernizations is moving towards generously proportioned, preferably flush-fit walk-in shower areas that offer comfort and safety in equal measure. With the right planning and product selection, the shower zone can become the favorite part of the bathroom.
Floor-flush showers also play to their strengths in rooms where only a smaller shower area is possible: no more tripping hazards and they look good in any bathroom! The choice is usually between a shower tray with a slight upturn, such as the P3 Comforts and Starck series, or a completely floor-flush solution. The Stonetto shower tray with its stone-like, anti-slip surface and concealed drain meets the most exacting standards: it can be installed flush with the floor, recessed or surface mounted, is available in twelve sizes and the colors White, Sand, Anthracite and Concrete gray. It can either harmonize with the tiles or set a contrast. A new outlet system, made from matt DuraSolid® has been developed for the shower tray that guarantees excellent drainage. Stonetto is therefore ideal for the heavier water flow from spray heads and rain showerheads.
Shower sets with a hand shower, hose and rail with a height-adjustable mounting are standard. More upmarket models additionally have a showerhead, such as the complete system in the C.1 tap fitting collection.
The practical all-in-one solution offers an enjoyable showering experience and is available as a solution for renovations without requiring complex in-wall work. It includes a showerhead (240mm), hand shower (120mm) and thermostat or single-lever showerhead mixer. Thermostat-controlled faucets guarantee a constant water temperature.
The spray wand in modern showers typically comes as a rain shower with a larger showerhead. Additionally, high-end rain or tropical showers often mix air with the water, which makes the drops feel extra-soft, like a warm summer rain. The hand shower is more flexible, which usually offers a range of adjustment options – from a standard stream through massaging streams right up to an aerated soft stream.
