The bathroom is no longer merely a functional space within a home. Evolving lifestyle habits and design trends (such as open-concept spaces) have rendered it to be one of the most important rooms of the home, with more focus placed on its look and feel. After all, we spend a significant amount of time in the bathroom, whether we are getting ready for the day ahead or winding down after a long day.
For a personal sanctuary that is as stylish and unique as it is practical and functional, look to bathware and fittings with an extra special touch. The following fixtures and fittings make use of premium materials, as well as a wide range of finishing and design elements, to let you create your own look. Some are even highly customisable, for a one-of-a-kind bathroom!
#1 AXOR SIGNATURE
With this exclusive service by Axor, you can make the brand’s products longer or shorter, and inscribe them. For example, extend the length of an overhead shower connector to have it suit the height of an old building, personalise a basin mixer with your own emblem, or adorn the handles with Swarovski crystals.
With such specifics, your fittings will fit in perfectly with your space, both aesthetically and functionally!

#2 IB RUBINETTI MARMO
Marmo by Italian brand IB Rubinetti will give your bathroom a polished, upscale look. The range of fittings, consisting of 72 models with different shapes and sizes for different functions, have designs that combine exquisite Italian white Carrara and black Marquina marble with contemporary aesthetics.
The pieces are handmade, and since natural stone is used, no two pieces are the same. Choose from a wide range of 16 metal finishes, too.

Finishes include Polished Chrome, Rose Gold and Oil-Rubbed Bronze.
The vintage-look designs are inspired by turn-of-the-century charm, making for sophisticated interiors.
