The simplicity of glass bathroom design

Transparency and glass in the bathroom

In your dream bathroom, does an uncluttered architecture create a sense of visual spaciousness and freedom to move around? If so, you are probably dreaming of a comfortable shower area which fits seamlessly into a feel-good ambience. Glass bathroom design and the trend towards greater transparency in the bathroom complement each other perfectly and can also be easily integrated into your bathroom.

Neat and unobscured: the invitingly transparent shower

In modern bathroom design, there is a movement towards openness and clarity: from the couch to the kitchen unit, transparency is currently on trend. At the same time, floor-to-ceiling windows create a fusion of indoors and outdoors. Light-flooded rooms offer plenty of freedom to move around thanks to their uncluttered design. The spacious shower in particular really benefits from the penchant for open-plan interior design. This is becoming increasingly prevalent in bathrooms that also function as living spaces.

More simplicity in modern bathroom design

Shower areas are becoming more spacious, but without being too obtrusive. The trend is for solutions which blend in seamlessly with the architecture: floor-level showers big enough for two, no frames and minimalist, with a virtually invisible pane of glass acting as a splash guard. A muted colour scheme supports this trend, which is ideal when used in combination with authentic materials.

Tranquil design full of clarity

With the quickening pace of many aspects of life, this clarity in bathroom design also means “that this is becoming a more personalised space and, notably, more tranquil”, said Design Manager Andreas Diefenbach from Phoenix Design. Tranquil bathroom architecture is ideally supported by products which blend in smoothly with the overall bathroom design and whose minimalist design language is truly impressive. These include shelves and spray discs in the familiar material, i.e. glass.

Complete transparency in the bathroom

In the light-flooded, clearly structured room, which is filled with an aura of tranquility, we can switch off and recharge our batteries.

Glass and water are natural partners in the bathroom

hansgrohe is completely in line with this trend, with its premium products for the bathroom. Glass on the Rainmaker Select overhead shower and the shelf on the ShowerTablet Select seamlessly integrate into the glass bathroom design. “Through integral reduction”, as the designers from Phoenix Design put it. After all, glass is the most obvious match for water. hansgrohe mixers in the "Modern” style, such as Metris, Talis and Focus, also support the trend towards clear design in an open-plan bathroom architecture.

“Glass and water are the best of friends. Glass, just like water, is something that is universal and also universally understood.”
Andreas Diefenbach, Design Manager at Phoenix Design
