Before we get back to discussing Design Trends (as we mentioned in our last post), we thought we’d take a moment to go over some basic parts and pieces of showers , specifically the wall and the base – designing a shower is not just about the glass doors and the showerhead. In fact, Kohler has done a LOT of thinking (and designing) and they’ve come up with a system they call the ‘Choreograph’. Here is how KOHLER describes what goes on in most showers:
Day in day out, we navigate around the shower caddy, we contort our bodies to accommodate an unforgiving space when we shave and we cover our floors and ledges with shampoo and conditioner bottles. Why? Because it’s the way we’ve always showered.
Your shower dance, the way you move and flow in your daily shower ritual, can be so much better. Introducing the Choreograph™ shower wall and accessory collection.
Choreograph brings functionality and organization to an otherwise chaotic space. Every detail has been considered, from the shower walls in a range of colors, patterns and textures that can be customized to match your style to the innovative storage solutions that will keep any shower organized to the seating options that make showering more comfortable. This collection presents possibilities that weren’t possible before—a shower you can choreograph to your movements in a shower dance all your own.
That is actually pretty cool — we love a system that works together seamlessly, and that’s the beauty of Choreograph. When you are renovating (or designing) your bathroom, it’s great to be able to have products that complement each other and work together harmoniously. Let’s look at some of the options they offer. Here are two of their towel bar options:
Each bar is made from anodized aluminum with integrated finish-matched caps for easy cleaning and to coordinate with your faucet finishes.
The add-on teak tray snaps securely into place and provides a dedicated space for storing the shower products you use every day.
And how about shelves? And hooks?
Floating Shower Shelves
These adaptable shelves can be placed anywhere in the shower. You can also install the floating shower shelves outside the shower to open up more storage possibilities.
Made from anodized aluminum, the shelves are positioned off the wall for better water drainage, making them easier to keep clean. The shelves are removable for easy cleaning.
A hook is a simple way to keep robes, towels, loofas dry while freeing the bathroom floor of clutter. They are made from anodized aluminum, which makes them durable and easy to clean.
And last but not least — you might be interested in seating!
They offer two styles – a flip-down and a stand-alone seat.
Flip-Down Seat: The 26-inch-wide seat pan provides comfort and stability in the shower. Simply flip it up when it’s not needed to save space.
Freestanding Shower Stool: The unique 26-5/8” height of the stool provides a comfortable seat to carry out daily grooming tasks both in and out of the shower. While in the shower, the specially designed stool elevates you to an ideal showering position for maximum water pressure and minimal heat loss.
Any way you look at it – KOHLER seems to have made designing a shower simple and stylish. And really, isn’t that what we all want when we think of designing a bathroom?
