The room for personal grooming has evolved into a retreat, a place where we can take a break and relax. Anyone designing a new bathroom nowadays turns to trends that help slow down our hectic lifestyles. The Danes have their own special word for that: hygge.
“For us Danes, hygge describes the feeling of wellbeing and contentment we derive from tranquility, simplicity and relaxation,” explains Thomas Leth, area sales manager for Northern European countries and managing director at Hansgrohe Denmark.
Authentic materials play an important role, from rustic warm wood elements to rough wall surfaces, such as exposed concrete or brick, in combination with accessories and natural accents. Natural surfaces set the stage for metallic fixtures and showerheads.
A spacious room layout opens up space for freedom of movement. Lots of soft colors and practical storage space for bathroom toiletries give the room an uncluttered look and an air of peace and quiet. Seating options and shelves and racks make the room feel like home. Shower areas are becoming spacious without being obtrusive. Floor-level showers are on trend; big enough for two, no frames, and minimalist with an almost invisible glass panel as a splashguard.
The hansgrohe shower control is a control center for a relaxed shower experience. The mechanisms are hidden in the wall. Hansgrohe Talis Select mixers score with its design and touch-button control.
