A floor-level shower is a favourite when modernising bathrooms. The Crometta showerpipe is particularly ideal for renovations as it can be retrofitted to existing connections.

Renovate the bathroom stylishly and with smart technology

Our tip: select a specific style so that it is easier for you to narrow down the choice of tap designs. hansgrohe offers three different styles of bathroom products: “Avantgarde”, “Modern” and “Classic”. This helps you choose from perfectly coordinated designs. The new hansgrohe products can also be combined with existing ones – for a harmonious bathroom renovation.

Brighten up the shower area and make it future-proof

Also find out about innovative technologies, because there have been many developments related to the bathroom. hansgrohe offers you a selection of bathroom products which are ideal for renovation. These include shower systems or shower sets. Moreover, replacing an exposed installation mixer with a hansgrohe ShowerTablet with shelf area offers added showering convenience without the need for any extensive renovation work.

Do you also need to consider future requirements of bathroom users? Lots of bathroom innovations support the cross-generation bathroom. Even in small stages, these provide you with better ergonomics and safety. Are you thinking about a floor-level shower instead of the old solution with a step? This investment in the future viability of your bathroom can also be achieved. Please note that this requires more extensive planning.

Renovate and retain your bathroom’s versatility

Whatever you decide on: with hansgrohe products, you will enjoy top brand quality, durability and spare parts availability. If you renovate using the iBox universal, you can also maintain your bathroom’s versatility in the future. With this product, future design requirements and features can easily be retrofitted “behind the wall”.
