Grohe's bathroom design is decidedly modern and minimalist. The large mirror with backlighting sports rounded corners and a minimalist floating vanity with a single, large basin. It has plenty of counter space for necessities and makes the space feel open because it is not sitting atop a hulking built-in vanity cabinet. New Technologies. An example of how technology is changing the bathroom experience is Grohe's shower controls. The smart shower controls here are integrate on a shelf. It not only allows you to control each fixture, but it also allows users to adjust the size of the water drops and volume of the spray — as well as the temperature. We love that it's also a little shelf. In an innovative use of technology, Oceania's Tahoe 66 tub can be turned into the ultimate skin care product with the company's NanoSens jet system. The jets are unlike any other spa-type tub because the system oxygenates the water with micro bubbles that can penetrate pores.

If you're not sure you can afford an entirely new bathroom, there are ways to give your existing one a fresh new look on a budget and without replacing the sanitary ware (the toilet, bath, sink and shower). First, you'll need to do a thorough clean. If the grouting is mouldy, try using a specialist cleaning product, available from supermarkets and DIY stores. If that doesn't work, buy an anti-mould grout-reviving pen, which you can get in black or white depending on the colour of your grouting. If you choose to redo the grouting altogether, use a sealer that will help prevent staining and mould growth in the future. To help prevent the mould coming back, try to leave the bathroom window open after showering or, if there isn't a window, install an extractor fan and leave the door open when you leave the room. If you are lucky enough to have a cast-iron bath but the ceramic covering has started to crack, consider buying a resurfacing kit or hiring someone to do a professional job for you, rather than replacing it. When you come to sell your home, buyers tend to rate period features.
