Trending in Home Design: Feature Toilets

August 7, 2015 3

For many years, it has been commonplace to find creative ways to hide toilets or make them fly under the design radar. Toilets are private, yes, but they are also a necessary part of a bathroom. The new trend in toilets steps away from the old philosophy of ‘out of sight out of mind’ and focuses on selecting beautifully crafted toilets that integrate into your overall bathroom concept. Rather than accepting an average toilet and attempting to tuck it away, design trends are now embracing feature toilets and turning into yet another opportunity to showcase opulence and good design taste.

These days toilets come in all shapes, sizes and colours, so why not choose one that perfectly complements the aesthetics of your space? Our experts have rounded up some of their favourite picks for you to consider as part of your bathroom design journey.

A sleek, contemporary design, the sophisticated Kohler San Souci™ Touchless Comfort Height® one-piece toilet is a perfect example of a feature toilet. This stunning style raises your restroom experience to new places, and as a bonus, it has touchless flush, which means fewer germs.
