Renovating the bathroom stylishly and with clever technology

Our tip: Decide on a style to make it easier to pre-select among faucet designs. At hansgrohe, you will find bathroom products in “Avantgarde,” “Modern” and “Classic” styles. This way, you can choose from a system in which everything matches up. The new hansgrohe products can also be combined with products already in place. That way, your renovated bathroom can maintain a harmonious design.

Enhance the shower area and make it future-ready

You can also learn about innovative technologies, because much has happened in the bathroom. hansgrohe offers a selection of bathroom products that are perfect for use in renovation. These include shower systems or shower sets. Replacing your existing exposed-installation faucet with a hansgrohe ShowerTablet with shelf offers added showering comfort – without the need for elaborate renovation work.

Should bathroom users’ future requirements be taken into account? Many innovations in the bathroom support the cross-generational bathroom. Even in small steps, this provides more ergonomics and safety. Do you have a floor-level shower in mind, instead of the old step-up solution? This investment in your bathroom’s sustainability can also be realized. Please note that this requires more extensive planning.

Renovate and keep the bathroom convertible

No matter what you decide: With hansgrohe products, you can enjoy the highest brand quality, durability and spare parts availability. When renovating with the iBox Universal, you are also prepared for changing needs and requirements: Once you’ve installed this concealed technology, you can always decide which operation you want to connect to it later. Or you can switch to another hansgrohe design line later, while the technology behind the wall remains unchanged.
