Kitchens have evolved enormously over the years: from small, tucked-away rooms where meals were prepared but rarely eaten, to large, central spaces in which families eat, entertain, and spend most of their time. In the process, kitchens have become a source of pride for individuals and families, a place in which they can express their individual taste and style, and which they can equip with modern technologies that make these spaces elegant and convenient.
World-renowned German sanitary company GROHE has developed sleek, innovative solutions to make kitchens exactly that. Whether you’re a homeowner interested in renovating your kitchen, an architect looking for the latest innovations to spec for a new project, or a plumber who prioritises a seamless installation process, GROHE’s products are for you. Here are some of the impressive features you can expect.
With GROHE’s SmartControl, you can start and stop the flow of water at your kitchen taps by simply pushing a button with either your wrist or elbow. This allows you to avoid touching the handle, which is particularly convenient when your hands are dirty and will prevent any cross-contamination from your hands to other surfaces.
The water flow can be switched between a gentle eco-flow and a powerful jet and turning the valve at the tap’s body adjusts the temperature. There’s also a pull-out spray head to give you added flexibility. This product is available in three designs and 10 finishes, so whatever you’re looking for, there’s a style to suit your specific taste and needs.
Another option is to go entirely hands-free. GROHE’s FootControl taps can be turned on and off by gently tapping your foot on the base unit, which ensures your taps and surfaces are kept clean at all times. GROHE’s FootControl technology is available in several ranges, including the K7 range, which offers a variety of spray options. You can also retrofit FootControl to any GROHE pull-out kitchen tap.
And if not your foot, you might choose to go for the GROHE Minta range, which uses GROHE’s EasyTouch technology to turn water on and off with a touch of your arm, wrist or elbow. Modern and minimal, this range fits seamlessly in any contemporary kitchen, and can be made to order.
GROHE’s technology extends not only to its taps and touch-free solutions, but also to its water systems, which enable people to use water consciously and sustainably. The GROHE Blue Home water system makes three types of filtered and chilled water available – still, medium and sparkling – directly from the tap. Gone are the days of expensive, often non-recyclable plastic bottles. With GROHE Blue Home, families can contribute to a plastic-free planet while accessing nourishing, clean drinking water at all times.
Another exclusive advantage from GROHE is that all product sets for the area under and above the sink include all the necessary accessories – no components need to be ordered separately for installation. And thanks to the pre-assembled fittings and the GROHE Quick Fix patent, kitchen fittings are particularly easy and quick to install.
GROHE’s integration of smart technology with high-quality kitchen solutions creates an environment that is both beautifully stylish and seamlessly functional. Diverse, elegant and easy to install, the GROHE kitchen range is essential for any home decorator, architect or professional plumber.
