When curating a bathroom that’s not only beautiful and functional, but also provides a much-needed retreat from the new work-from-home environment, even small changes to your shower can elevate this space to spa-like levels.
As people spend more time at home, bathrooms have transformed into personal spa experiences. Glass shower doors with minimal framing, spacious showers with integrated seating and decorative tiles combine to create unique and restorative spaces.
To ensure that home owners enjoy a bathroom that reflects their individual style and meets their changing needs, GROHE has developed curated bathroom concepts. Called Perfect Match, this offers product combinations that bring together form and function.
