Trend alert: Red shades in the bathroom

With two new rich shades of red being added to the Artis range, bathroom brand Villeroy & Boch looks at energising the bathroom with a vibrant colour palette. Red isn’t dead, it seems…

Reds are all about vibrant and warm tones. They feel stimulating and exude optimism and energy. With so much focus on transforming our bathrooms into sanctuaries for wellbeing, red shades are a perfect choice for anyone who wants to recharge their batteries and find daily inspiration while brushing their teeth. Admittedly, it does take a little courage, but this is a colour that has the potential to transform your bathroom into a very personal source of energy.

Artis surface-mounted washbasins provide a perfect showcase for strong colours. With their dual-colour look, combining a brilliant white interior with coloured outer surfaces, the washbasins coordinate in any bathroom, even if other ceramic fittings are in a classic white. In 2021, the German-Danish designer Gesa Hansen added two new rich red shades to the Artis colour palette, Bordeaux and Rust. Bordeaux evokes images of the intensive hues of ripe grapes, while Rust is a warm shade with an earthy, natural feel.

Red is a strong colour that needs a sparring partner to reveal its full effect in the bathroom. Bold combinations, for example, a red basin on a matt black vanity unit, increase the intensity. Another combination with a guaranteed wow effect, is the Artis handbasin in combination with a Finion vanity unit in Peony, a shade again inspired by nature, and the vibrant red of blossoming peonies.

Wood tones and natural shades such as sand or light grey, on the other hand, create a harmonising effect. They offset the vibrancy of red colours and emphasise their warm, cosy character.

And if you aren’t quite ready to embrace the red in your bathroom basin, put it on the wall instead. A red wall will create a strong statement as a contrast to the pure white of the ceramics, and will infuse the room, and your daily routine, with warmth.

Interesting fact: in the 19th century, significant scientific insights create the foundations of modern hygiene. An essential contribution is made by sanitary products, which are still not widely used around 1900 and are more a privilege for the wealthy people. At this time Villeroy & Boch starts large-scale production of bathtubs and toilets. This is an important contribution towards democratising bathing and hygiene.

Are you looking for hygienic, fresh and easy-to-clean bathroom products? Well, with the Villeroy & Boch’s champion and Quaryl you are in safe hands. The rimless DirectFlush toilet with the innovative CeramicPlus and AntiBac surface is the perfect hygiene solution from Villeroy & Boch.

The new generation of rimless WCs offers particularly quick and thorough cleaning. A precise, splash-free water flow ensures the entire interior of the bowl is rinsed thoroughly to ensure cleanliness. The design of the DirectFlush WCs makes them easier to clean – which saves times and money. So the DirectFlush WC is suitable for use in both private households and commercial projects. One of the leading European Hygiene Institutes, IZORE – the “Centre for Infectious Diseases”, Friesland, NL has shown in tests that, thanks to the optimised design, the rimless Villeroy & Boch DirectFlush WC is practically germ-free after cleaning.

The low water consumption of just 3/4.5l is standard for Villeroy & Boch and sufficient for flushing the entire bowl. This is better than required by the standard. As standard EN 997 permits an unflushed area of 85 mm below the upper edge for rimless WCs. But DirectFlush flushes the entire inner bowl!

AntiBac is the innovative hygiene solution for busy commercial areas. The new glaze contains silver ions that have been proven to reduce the growth of bacteria on ceramic surfaces and WC seats by more than 99.9%!

Villeroy & Boch has succeeded in improving the properties of ceramics. A special process gives the CeramicPlus surface a permanent highquality finish. CeramicPlus offers optimum hygiene and is kind both to the environment and the wallet. The water forms in droplets on the CeramicPlus surface. These flow off into the outlet, taking residues, such as limescale and dirt with them which makes the cleaning process much easier and quicker.

In combination with CeramicPlus and the rimless DirectFlush WCs, AntiBac ensures maximum cleanliness and hygiene – throughout the product lifetime!

Quaryl from Villeroy & Boch is a unique material for unique bathrooms. Robust, durable yet allows a wide range of designs, nice and warm to the touch. An exclusive material for unusually precise shapes with clearly defined edges and small radii, setting new standards in baths and shower trays design. A great advantage of the material is its surface which provide a perfect hygiene solution. Quaryl is a material with a smooth, pore-free surface that makes cleaning easier and quicker as dirt and limescale have hardly any hold – this ensures a permanent, glimmering shine.
