Solace in today’s humdrum life and pace can easily be found in the bathroom. No wonder, consumers are investing to make their bathrooms more like living spaces. Believing in giving consumers an elevated experience, and living up to the promise of gracious living, Kohler Co., a 146-year old institution, is a leader in kitchen and bath designs with bold and innovative luxury products.
The new Kohler showrooms all across South Africa showcase products that enable new levels of engagement, from the beautifully considered, to the technically intelligent.
A lot has changed from the time when bathrooms used to be hidden away. Today, they add value and an element of luxe to contemporary interiors. Growing trends are to make this space inspired by designs that are minimalist, contemporary and elegant with separate wet and dry areas. Using furniture to compliment the design story is another trend that is on the rise.
Exhibiting glamour, style and indulgence through its extensive range of products, Kohler has clearly redefined the luxury bath segment. It has endeavoured to make bathrooms a reflection of the lifestyle and personality of its owner.
The South African lifestyle has changed drastically over the past decade. With more international exposure and influence, the bathroom has become a living space where you can find global design trends come to life. Kohler tries to create an experience for its consumers by providing luxury spaces and playing with traditions and modern trends that provide a distinctive look. Luxury spaces are a combination of form, function and exclusivity, though price is an important aspect. Products as simple as bath and toilets are employing technology such as chromatherapy, UV cleaning and touch interface. Kohler understands that consumers’ love and are inclined towards luxury, thus, offer products that are not only luxurious, but enhance the lives of consumers.
Keeping consumers at the heart of everything they do, Kohler also has designer products that are made on special orders, these are hand-made and involve intricate designing. We also have a panel of dedicated designers who work on making products in accordance with these trends. Most of our products, be it Numi, VibrAcoustic, DTV or Nature’s Chemistry, have been designed keeping in mind these emerging trends to meet and exceed consumer expectations.
Another leading trend that we see in the bath space, is to have a homogeneous single branded bathroom. Kohler being a full bathroom solution company provides complete ranges, for example the Loure range. Combining a sleek profile with enhanced utility, the Loure collection introduces a modern look.
The Loure collection includes a range of taps, rainheads, bathroom accessories and bath and shower components. Loure faucets adjust with a touch, and the unique delivery technology allows for an unprecedented degree of control over temperature and flow, ensuring an experience that is simple, sensual – and cutting edge. In the spirit of design artistry and innovation for which Kohler is known, they offer unique, handcrafted taps in a wide range of styles, colours and materials to match individual taste and the décor.
The shift from a product centric focus to becoming a complete ‘bathroom solutions provider’ brand is truly visible in its product line. Today, with more than 50 manufacturing locations in 6 continents, more than 30,000 Kohler associates are able to present the concept of gracious living in every corner of the world.
