Bagno Design – a Gulf-wide chain of high-end showrooms displaying sanitary ware, tiles, plumbing accessories, sinks and bath-tubs – has come up with unique themes to seamlessly merge bathrooms with the rest of the interiors of the project.
Backed by its huge variety of top-of-the-line product ranges, Bagno is taking the bathroom interiors to the next level by offering numerous themes and combinations to make a bathroom luxurious, unique, and a place of well-being.
“Take the example of the innovative manufacturing techniques from Zucchetti of Italy, which has come up with the revolutionary idea of producing the first mixer tap in the world that is entirely concealed. This product could give the bathroom interior a totally different dimension and would be a perfect combination of beauty and functionality,” says Daryl Barker, group managing director of sanitary ware and plumbing specialist Sanipex, of which Bagno Design is a subsidiary.
“Be it a top resort, a luxury villa, a royal palace or a penthouse of a corporate boss, one would find that the Aquatonica – an innovative multipurpose shower column from Fantini of Italy – blends perfectly with the rest of the bathroom’s interior theme. This product is a complete shower system with a large rainfall shower head, body massage jets and a hand-held shower.”
He continues: “In the continual evolution of lifestyles and habits, the bathroom has become a place in the home where one recaptures well-being. Once a room for daily body-care, it has become a place to recuperate and relax in the most comfortable of ambiances. Interior designers have recently started focusing on the interiors of the washrooms and making them as comfortable as possible with a harmonious theme selecting the right kind of products that blend with the general theme of the house.
“Modern-day sanitary ware makes a statement of its own in any interior setting. That is the reason why world-famous designers like Sir Norman Foster, Philippe Starck and Michael Graves are so celebrated for their inspiring designs and themes. Now, it is not unusual to see a washbasin crafted out of clear glass just to match the immaculate interior theme; inset or countertop-mounted with beautifully-designed mixers in a traditional or contemporary style to complement the surrounding. It’s all happening as people are realising the importance of what ambiance they want to live in.
“Bathroom has become a corner of the house with hi-tech components and needs as much attention as one would give to other parts of the house while selecting the interior themes. At Bagno, the experienced staff help clients to select the perfect theme, giving them options to choose from a huge variety of well-known designers bathroom products and accessories.”
One such company is Cesana, which – for over 30 years – has been keeping abreast with the changes and dynamics in bathroom evolution, anticipating trends and introducing technical innovations that have set standards in the shower enclosure area.
Cesana has produced over 7,000 models in the course of its history to match every imaginable theme, and this exceptional range reflects continual stylistic and functional research to meet every new demand for a better lifestyle, Barker says.
“Cesana conceives the bathroom to be a system offering maximum flexibility – dimensional and aesthetic – to which it is constantly adding new and innovative possibilities for achieving daily wellness in style and comfort,” he adds.
According to Barker, the latest trend is towards basins made of the finest marble and granite set upon Italian designer cabinets which are finished in the finest of veneers and featuring handcrafted leather detailing.
“Now couple this with a beautiful designer mixer range and high-quality accessories and you would have a perfect bathroom which complements the interiors,” he concludes.
