Urban intensification means New Zealand townhouses and apartments are often built without a hot water cupboard and only minimal cabinetry in the bathroom. This leaves residents with little room to keep bulky towels and cleaning supplies, while small items like tweezers, toothpaste and toiletries end up stuffed inside a few small cupboards or drawers.
Even in larger houses, the bathroom may be a place where everything is crammed onto a few shelves beneath the vanity. It’s a holdover from the time when bathroom design was an afterthought and there simply wasn’t the choice of products most people now take for granted.
Blum has addressed the issue with SPACE TOWER, which provides layers of storage in a single unit with a small footprint.
SPACE TOWER is designed to be customised. Bulky items such as fresh towels, bath mats, toilet tissue and spare bottles of shampoo can be stowed on shelves — hidden from view but easily accessible. At the same time, small items such as make-up and cotton buds can be given their own designated spaces. Everything has its home and can be easily located, while the bathroom as a whole retains the clean lines and uncluttered look today’s homeowners aspire to.
Blum also optimises bathroom storage with its unique u-shaped drawers that wrap around the plumbing in vanity units. Storage space is created where previously there was only a void. There’s even an option to hide waste paper bins from sight using Blum’s in-drawer bin options for bathroom furniture.
With the SPACE TOWER system, plus Blum’s comprehensive suite of storage accessories and hardware, a refreshingly clean and uncluttered aesthetic is now easy to create for all bathrooms, great and small.
