While the drawer units’ interiors highlight the beauty of dark textured wood finish with dividers included to keep items neat and organised. The collection optimises the use of three design lines to complement harmoniously with multiple design combinations. Such simplicity and pleasing aesthetics can be observed in the range of in countertop, wall-hung or over countertop basins, available in round, soft or square. The Inspira basins are easier to clean with soft and rounded angled surfaces, and the basins are made of 100 per cent ceramic.

Josep Delicado, Managing Director of Singapore and Malaysia for Roca Bathroom Products Singapore also noticed a subtle difference Asia and the West have when choosing colour tones to match their bathroom elements. The West tends to gravitate towards a darker tone. However, in Asia, “Soothing tones, such as crisp white, earthy brown and warm neutrals, are often used to decorate Asian bathrooms, as they infuse a space with a peaceful and welcoming vibe,” enthused Mr Delicado.

“Asian-style bathrooms provide the perfect spot in which to rest, unwind and recover at the end of each day. A sense of tranquility, well-being, balance and visual harmony is at the heart of the design aesthetic, which evokes these qualities with the use of clean lines, minimalist decor, soothing colour schemes and natural materials,” said Mr Delicado. Black is the predominent colour for classic and sophistication and the colour commonly makes an appearance in Asian-inspired rooms.

Colours have the power to enliven or to dull any space but not so if you play with slicks of white to cut through the moody hue to create a sophisticated look. “If you’re worried a gray palette will make your bathroom feel flat and lifeless, you could also energise the space by adding a splash of bold, eye-popping colour. While a palette of moody black and rich brown may appear heavy and overwhelming in some bathrooms, tone it down with cool white tub and a floor-to-ceiling window that floods the area with natural light. Blissful Zen-inspired bath zone sets the scene for rest and relaxation. Neutral-toned walls add warmth and an inviting ambiance, while the bath, vanity and accessories in crisp white, uplift the look,” said Mr Delicado.

Another notable ranges are the close-couple Inspira WCs, seats and covers. Mr Delicado elaborated that the wall-hung version of the WC (top, bottom right) is optimised for greater hygiene where uniform water distribution covers the entire inner surface of the bowl. The seats and covers are manufactured with Supralit, an exclusive resin registered by Roca, made to be more resistant to chemical agents and to yellowing, thereby are reliable and durable. The seats and covers also offer soft-close hinges that avoid blows and noises.
