Timeless Metrix Bathroomware Specified for Kohimarama Home

This 1950’s home recently underwent a renovation which included the addition of a new wing with a master bedroom, ensuite, living area and guest bathroom. The clients wanted to invest in elegant, quality bathroomware for the new bathrooms — which would be a step up from the bathroom they’d shared with their three kids prior to the renovation. A range of products from Metrix were selected to provide a classic timeless look and long lasting durability. 

“We wanted to use high quality, durable products in the bathrooms with classic designs,” says the homeowner. “They’re not busy rooms; there are only a few components, so we wanted a lot of emphasis on those. We also wanted to make sure they’d be nice and easy to maintain — especially the guest bathroom which is visible from living areas.”

A key component in each bathroom is the ME by Starck Wall Mounted Toilet with Valsir Tropea S in-wall cistern. The sleek wall hung design ensures easy cleaning, while the clean lines of the toilet and subtle Valsir cistern plates in chrome help maintain the classic minimalist look the clients wanted. “The bathrooms are a breeze to keep clean, as the robot vacuum can pass under the toilet,” says the homeowner. “We love that.” 

They also appreciated the dependability of the Metrix range which has featured in New Zealand homes for over 30 years. “We actually tiled around the in-wall cistern — and to do any repairs we’ll need to chip away at those mosaic tiles, so we really needed to make sure the toilet and cistern were really robust and dependable,” says the homeowner. “That’s another reason we went with Metrix — it’s such a dependable unit.”

Another key element of the bathrooms was tapware from Metrix’s Paini range in a brushed chrome finish — including the Paini Cox Basin Mixer for the ensuite, and the Paini Cox Wall Mounted Mixer for the guest bathroom. “We really liked the brushed finish on the tapware as well as the lift-up control of the taps, it feels substantial,” says the homeowner. 

And for the master ensuite, which features a walk-in shower with full wall mosaic tiles and a rooflight behind, care was taken to choose tapware that would complement the design. “We wanted it to look uncluttered and simple, so that the shower was the key feature,” says the homeowner. A Paini Slide Shower Set with Stilo Handspray in silver provides the classic timeless look the clients wanted. 

Overall the clients are thrilled with their new ensuite and guest bathroom and have enjoyed using the Metrix tapware in their day-to-day lives. “We’re really pleased with the finished result,” says the homeowner. “We get lots of comments about the guest bathroom, and the timeless look we’ve achieved. Metrix really delivered on that brief.”
