Timeless serenity. Classical elegance. White on white is one bathroom trend that’s here to stay says Kohler. White bathrooms are considered as tranquil and efficient today as they were five years ago. Put simply, a white bathroom will not date, and continues to welcome and refresh tired bodies and busy minds.
So if calm and tranquillity top your bathroom wish-list, consider opting for a clean, white-on-white palette and sleek modern style. Smart selections of taps, basins and bath with simple lines will keep your physical space – and your mind – blissfully free of clutter! The all- whites are softened by raw timber flooring and accessories – with a focus on soft lines and fluid curves. Its quintessential simplicity delivers a timeless sophistication.
A classically timeless white on white bathroom.
In this white-on-white palette, Kohler’s choice in tapware is a perfect fit with the overall ambience of the space. Avid features beautifully simple lines that belie the technical prowess of this mixer. With the basin mixer, an internal cartridge, coupled with an aerator, creates excellent water efficiency, limiting flow to just six litres a minute, while the slender design of the handle ensures easy, accurate control of both flow and temperature. The Avid matching shower mixer completes the look.
The Avid basin mixer is paired with the Forefront rectangular countertop basin – a true classic!
Here, the Avid basin mixer is paired with the ever popular Forefront basin with it’s sleek, low profile. The Avid shower mixer with diverter pairs with both the Exhale slide shower (note matching white, silicone, easy-clean spray face which continues the white theme!) and RainCan over head shower for a truly drenching rain-shower experience.
Both the Exhale and RainCan feature Kohler’s Katalyst Air Induction Technology – a patented technology which reduces water consumption while increasing the sense of ‘deluge’ water delivery. These drenching, water-efficient showers – rated 3 star WELS – are produced by injecting two litres of air a minute into the water stream.
For a stand-out bath, the Abrazo is a nautilus-inspired pure white bath in lithocast, a high end acrylic that looks like finely honed stone but is soft on the skin and retains the temperature of the water for longer periods.
The Abrazo Lithocast bath is a focal point in any bathroom.
And the finishing touch is matching Avid accessories which are classically simple and timeless in the style stakes!
The Avid accessories offer a stunning collection of matching towel bars, towel rings and toilet tissue holders.
Advanced water technology means we can all indulge in a drenching, luxurious, all-enveloping shower safe in the knowledge we are using less water than ever when showering!
Kohler, the US global design force in bathroom design and technology, is the brand behind the patented Katalyst showering technology.
A reconfigured sprayface and an air-injection mechanism create a super-indulgent ‘rainshower’ experience whereby the user receives even, wide coverage, without any wasteful overspray, regardless of the water pressure.
The Exhale Showerhead offers 4 different shower spray options to suit your mood.
Katalyst technology introduces 2.2 litres of air into every 9.4 litres of water creating larger, fuller water droplets that retain heat longer**.
The fullness and force of the water spray emulates that of a heavy rain shower, courtesy in part to the redesign of the nozzles – larger diameter, different configuration and revised angle.
Kohler’s Katalyst showering technology delivers luxurious, plump water droplets that retain the heat for longer.
The unique patented technology of Katalyst results in a better cleaning and hair rinsing performance – and an overall indulgent, luxurious experience.
And while the technology is high performance there are no visible changes to the showerhead’s exterior and no extra noise.
The Exhale Shower comes with 4 different shower spray options – from Silk Spray for a gentle face wash to Drenching for a full showering experience.
The Kohler Moxie Showerhead with Wireless Bluetooth Speaker also sports Katalyst Air Injected Technology.
Kohler’s Katalyst rainshower experience is available in a number of showering tapware options – wall and ceiling mounted showerheads plus showering columns.
The Katalyst RainDuets come with Round or Square Rain Showerheads
The Kohler Katalyst RainCans come in square or round and two sizes – 200mm or 250mm.
The Moxie Showerhead with Wireless Bluetooth Speaker comes in 2 sizes – 125mm and 250mm
** Independent studies have shown each droplet is half a degree warmer as a result of Katalyst technology.
Conveying strength and style with an attitude, the new KOHLER® Vibrant Titanium finish is a stunning addition to any modern
With deeper, richer tones than polished chrome it retains the shine and reflection of chrome while providing the perfect foil for other favourite finishes for the bathing space such as timber, stone and ceramics.
A close up of the unique Composed Basin Mixer’s cylindrical barrel handle.
Typical of the look is the bathroom pictured, showing Kohler’s new- release Composed Titanium tapware teamed with pared-back stone benchtop, timeless penny round ceramic wall tiles and convincingly realistic timber ceramic tiles. The result is timeless, covetable style in the bathroom!
This beachside home’s bathroom features the Composed tapware in new Titanium finish.
Composed is Kohler’s award-winning basin and showering tapware in the new Titanium PVD finish (International Red Dot Design Award). PVD technology – Physical Vapour Deposition – enables luxury metal finishes to be applied to solid brass tapware by vapourising the finish and then molecularly bonding it to the chrome surface. The result is a tarnish, scratch and corrosion resistant finish that exceeds industry standards and carries a 15-year warranty.

Other fittings in the bathroom include the Kohler Parliament benchtop basin and the Rain Duet Shower column, with Katalyst technology that delivers a luxurious and drenching rainshower experience while using less than 9 litres of water a minute. Katalyst technology is a revolutionary air induction system that injects 2.2 litres of air into every 9.4 litres of water, creating larger, fuller water droplets, which retain heat for longer, creating a full, enveloping shower experience.
The Parliament countertop basin’s square lines pair perfectly with the Composed tapware design aesthetic.
A space-saving essential for compact spaces, is Kohler’s Panache wall-faced toilet suite. By concealing the cistern within the wall space the perception of spaciousness can be achieved.
The Panache Wall Faced Toilet Suite is a space-saving winner in both form and function.
The Panache Wall Faced Toilet comes with bevel or oval chrome flushplate options.
To complete the look, and maintain the design aesthetic, Kohler’s Singulier bathroom accessories have been used throughout.

Our design crush on metals has moved to the bathroom with the style spotlight shining brightly on Titanium – one of the world’s most precious metals. Kohler has been quick to respond, releasing a beautiful set of tapware in a lustrous Titanium PVD finish.
Avid 3TH Basin Set in stunning Titanium PVD finish.
Avid, seriously graceful and sensuously simple, won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2015 for its polished chrome format. Its recreation in Titanium is a sure case of sublime style and perfect timing!
Reminiscent of liquid metal Avid’s gentle, fluid form rises from the benchtop and is stretched to a slender, tapered spout. The lever control is an extension of the body of the tap – no harsh edges, sharp angles or unnecessary embellishment.
The Avid Super Tall Basin Mixer – the perfect partner for a vessel or countertop basin!
The Avid collection includes Standard, Tall and Super Tall basin mixers as well as a three-piece widespread model, a wall mount basin mixer and shower mixers. The basin tapware has a 5 star WELS rating, using six litres of water a minute.
The slimline Avid Wall Mount Basin Set in Titanium.
The durable, corrosion-resistant Titanium finish of Avid is achieved by virtue of PVD technology (Physical Vapour Deposition). This is a customised finish system that vaporises the finish and molecularly bonds it to the chrome surface. This produces a finish that is tarnish, scratch and corrosion resistant – in fact all Kohler finishes exceed industry standards and carry a 15-year warranty.
The Avid basin tapware is rated a five star WELS using just six litres of water a minute. Avid accessories complete the look and are also available in the Titanium finish.
