With the average size of a UK home smaller than ever, how can housebuilders come up with stylish bathrooms that maximise space and appeal to buyers? Here, Sophie Weston, Channel Marketing Manager at Geberit discusses some design and product solutions.
Bathrooms play a huge role in the home. Often a place of sanctuary, they are commonly, also one of the smallest spaces in the home. Geberit’s range of space-saving ceramic and bathroom furniture offer developers a world of design possibilities for any budget.
Wall-hung furniture and ceramics, which create the illusion of ‘floating’ above the floor, can offer a space-saving solution that opens up both the space and creates a clean, streamlined design.
The premise is simple. Specifying a quick and affordable pre-wall frame system, such as Geberit Duofix, enables housebuilders to conceal the cistern behind a stud wall, reducing the outward projection of the ceramic.
Opting for wall-hung ceramics can make a real difference – the ability to conceal the cistern and lift the toilet’s footprint off the floor can make even the smallest of bathroom spaces instantly appear bigger. Wall-hung systems also provide housebuilders with the opportunity to upsell finishing touches, with the option of adding stylish flush plate finishes such as textured rustic wood or slate designs.
And with more than 10 models available, the Geberit’s Duofix wall-hung frame system, and wide range of wall-hung ceramic furniture, means that housebuilders will find a wall-hung solution for any project.
Alternatively, opting for simple, slim design solutions can create valuable space on a bathroom project and unlock sales potential. Geberit’s Selnova Compact and Renova Plan series, for instance, offer a suite of compact and slimline furniture options, including short projection WCs and smaller-depth basins. Both ranges also incorporate a number of smart storage solutions like vanity units, tall shelving and mirror cabinets, helping add value and design appeal to the project.
Quality and Excellence
With buyers increasingly looking for complete bathroom packages that boast both quality and design excellence, getting product specification right can unlock potential on your next project.
