If there is one key trend for bathrooms in 2018 it would be choice. While one person opts for sleek and white, another will go for personality and patina. Global suppliers such as Kohler have seen the signs and are extending their ranges to ensure designers and homeowners can all stamp their style and character on their interiors.
Just as Kohler was one of the forerunners in creating precious metal finishes for its tapware (including rose gold, titanium and brushed nickel), it has also taken the lead in developing a choice of trims for shower and bath mixers.
With the introduction of Slim Trims, consumers can now choose between the traditional sized mixers to match their favourite tap and slimmer, sleeker versions. They also have the option of a mixer plate with or without diverter.
The Slim Trims have been designed to match some of Kohler’s best-selling polished chrome tapware ranges: Purist, Loure, Aleo, Toobi, Strayt, Kumin and Cuff.
In most cases the width of the mixer plate, without diverter, has been reduced by at least 25%, and in the case of the Purist, Cuff and Kumin mixers these are now a neat 100mm diameter circle.
The aesthetic advantage of the Slim Trims is that the peripheral hardware no longer dominates. This allows the true heroes, such as the showerhead and surface finishes, to shine.
All of Kohler’s tapware features its unique tarnish and corrosion resistant polished chrome finish.
Kohler’s Slim Trim range is available nationally from major plumbing merchants.
