Introducing some bathroom inspiration especially for the men in your life, from the Duravit ME collection.

The new Series ME by Starck by Duravit and Philippe Starck

Pure and rough: the trends in modern bathroom styles are currently oriented toward masculine design with authentic materials and manly character. Linear forms and sharp edges defined by clear structure define this style.

The Paiova corner bath

While women focus their bathtime on wellness, comfort and relaxation, men will need more persuading. Keep it simple and choose muted colours like greys and regal black – the most common colour choices for men. You can create a space that is tranquil but still rugged. Consider exposed walls and natural stone for a sense of masculinity.

Stonetto by Duravit create stylish highlights.
Stonetto gives the appearance of a matte, stone-like structure.

The key is in functionality. Throw in a leather armchair or a bath big enough for two. Keep in mind the usually pragmatic male thought process and provide a space that offers more than just a space to cleanse, but sufficient space to be yourself.
