John Pawson fixture in silver over COCOON soaking tub

Now that you’ve successfully selected your made-to-measure, custom COCOON pieces, you’re ready to tackle designing the rest of the space. Bath fixtures can transform any bathroom into a luxurious and soothing sanctuary.

Since COCOON embodies a timeless, minimalist, and luxurious design, we suggest selecting fixtures that align with those same elements. 

Read on to how to elevate the bathroom space with fixtures that will complement your COCOON products without taking away from them. Let’s break it down, fixture by fixture.

To Complement Your COCOON Bathtub…

If You Are Styling a Piet Boon Free Standing Soaking Tub

Consider the COCOON Floor Mounted Bath Mixer with Hand Shower:  PB40

This chic piece, the newly released, PB40, was designed with the user in mind. The hand shower and faucet offer functionality in a sleek design that doesn’t draw attention from the tub.

Or, Was This Tub More Your Style?

Consider the COCOON John Pawson Floor Mounted Bath Filler

Spout Projection 400mm. Available in three different finishes. 

From the award-winning John Pawson by COCOON Collection, this piece combines elegance and minimalism. 

And Don’t Forget About Drains

The COCOON Pop-Up Waste Drain/Bath Drain

Available in 12 finishes, this drain allows the focus to remain on the main attention: that beautiful COCOON tub. 

Bathroom Faucets and Basin Mixers

Similar to the tub fillers and shower fixtures, bathroom sink faucets should accent the space without drawing attention.

If You Like The Look of the COCOON Bespoke Natural Stone Washbasin by John Pawson…

Consider the John Pawson Deck Mounted Mixer 

Spout Projection 280mm.

Or, If You Prefer This Look of the Monolith Basin by John Pawson…

Think About the John Pawson Wall Mounted Progressive Basin Mixer with 200mm Spout

This basin mixer brings a touch of Pawson’s elegant minimalism into any bathroom.

Shower Fixtures

Designers have a few elements to consider in choosing the best shower sets for a space. For instance, designers should keep in mind any functional or technical plumbing details that may affect the choice of fixtures as well as any requests from the client. Additionally, designers should match the fit and finish.

Designer bath manufacturers typically create a variety of showerheads, such as rain showers, handheld, wall-mounted, and recessed ceiling rain showers.

COCOON offers a few different selections to choose from, including the Piet Boon Collection, John Pawson Collection, and the COCOON Lab – Mono rain shower head. They are all distinct and designed to be modular, water-saving, and timeless.

Let’s take a look at some options.

The COCOON PB SET23THERM: A Best-Seller That Never Fails to Impress

Designed by Piet Boon, these thermostatic shower fixtures are made from AISI 316L marine grade stainless steel with PVD colors of gunmetal black, raw copper, and brushed inox. The exterior parts include a hand shower, diverter 2 outputs, and a thermostatic (U.S. compliant) mixer.

With decades of experience, and meeting the high expectations of our clients across the country, SH+P can offer COCOON showerheads in gunmetal black and dark platinum matte to be similar and stay within the modern, minimal design style.

Prefer a Lighter Look?

Let Us Introduce You to the John Pawson Complete Thermostatic Rain Shower Set

This set includes the stick model hand shower and the wall-mounted rain shower. We couldn’t resist showing off the brushed gold, but this set is also available in two other finishes, including brushed inox and dark gray.

Bespoke bathroom designs combine luxury and functionality in customizable solutions. Bathrooms can significantly elevate a property. In fact, Zillow predicts an average bathroom remodel has a national average return on investment (ROI) of 72.7%.

Read on to learn more about bespoke bathroom designs and the advantages of this innovative form of bathroom design.

What is a Bespoke Bathroom?

A bespoke bathroom is the transformation of a vision into reality.  Bespoke bathroom designs are formed from a concept that considers the needs of the user without compromising the design.

Designing with this concept in mind allows for greater functionality and flexibility while maintaining an element of luxury in your space. 

Advantages of Bespoke Bathroom Designs

Concepts Can Meet Specific Needs of the Client

With bespoke bathrooms, designers can address needs such as: 

  • The bathroom needing to be child-friendly
  • The client wanting only or both a shower and bathtub
  • The bathroom being accessible to a client with special needs
  • Additional features, such as the newest technology
  • Addressing storage concerns

Designs Make the Most of the Space

Bespoke bathroom designs can fit any bathroom size, such as:

  • Small bathrooms
  • Large bathrooms
  • Family bathrooms
  • En-suite bathrooms

Many bathrooms do not function as well as they could because their design has not been customized. Through bespoke bathroom design, designers can utilize every inch of space in a bathroom of any size. 

Designs Can Fit Any Shape of Bathroom

Additionally, bespoke bathroom designs are an attractive option for those looking to customize a unique or unwieldy bathroom space. Bespoke bathroom designs help users make the most of their space in terms of both utility and style.

Concepts Can Be Created Around a Budget

Bespoke bathroom designs provide the flexibility to carefully select each feature of the space. Designers can decide on elements such as:

  • Materials
  • Color palette
  • Shower doors
  • Custom hinges
  • Shower mirrors
  • Soaking bathtubs
  • Sinks
  • Hardware
  • Rain showerheads
  • Bathroom tiles

Through this flexibility, designers can create a concept around the budget of their clients without compromising their vision. Further, designers have complete control over how to allocate the budget in the space. 

Custom Storage Solutions

If storage is a main requirement of the clients, designers can create customized storage solutions while maintaining the style of their bespoke bathroom design.

COCOON gray double sink with gold faucets

You may have heard claims that minimalism is dead, but this simply isn’t true. To make these claims is to misunderstand what minimalism is and its lasting effects. 

Minimalism rose in popularity over the last few years. Followings of YouTubers, bloggers, and personalities such as Marie Kondo, The Minimalists, and Matt D’Avella skyrocketed as everyone clamored to figure out how to get rid of their stuff the right way. 

But COVID-19 lockdowns have left some people in barren homes that they don’t love and yearning for more possessions. Many regret stripping their closets, kitchens, and art supplies now that the outside world is less accessible. 

Does this mean minimalism is gone? No, of course not. Minimalism existed before you heard of it and it’ll live on, even if the mainstream focus shifts away from it.

The philosophy of minimalist interior design is to reduce the amount of items and possessions in a room to create a peaceful space. Minimalist rooms may have few pieces of furniture in them, but they’re anything but barren. A well-designed minimal environment combines a number of purposeful factors to design a harmonious and beautiful space.
