Duravit explain how small urban bathrooms can become eye-catching spectacles

In the face of our increasing mobility and the ongoing urbanisation that represents a present-day mega-trend, the limited space available in towns and cities is being put to ever more creative use, be it in the guise of car sharing, urban gardening or the hip micro-apartment. Homes, and above all small bathrooms, are fitted out in smart and flexible fashion: spatial boundaries are dissolved, bathrooms become eye-catching features in the smallest of spaces and ingenious solutions in the washing area highlight the interior design as a whole.

Shower and bath in one and floor-flush showers provide greater freedom and individual scope in fitting out the bathroom. Compact solutions are ideal in small bathrooms, providing sufficient storage space and incorporating various functions. Individual highlights turn even the smallest bathroom into a comfortable, larger-than-life attraction in the urban home which is admired by friends and guests as a relaxing, revitalising and inspiring environment.

Practical two-in-one products save space and provide comfort in the bathroom – such as the Shower + Bath developed by Duravit and EOOS.  This new product combines bathing and showering in one: when the integrated glass door is closed, the walk-in shower is transformed into a bath. The glass partition is optionally available with a mirror glass finish on one side – an advantage for small bathrooms, as large mirror surfaces make the room appear larger as a whole. Compact exterior dimensions of 170x75cm open up efficient installation options. Flush to the floor shower trays combined ideally with shower walls such as OpenSpace B provide greater freedom of movement in the bathroom. This innovative shower partition can simply be folded back against the wall after use. This means that the doors conceal tap fittings and showerheads, introduce a sense of calm into the room and make it genuinely larger.
