Grohe Faucets, Fixture Collections Review: Euro, Ladylux, Rainshower, Seabury, Relexa, and Others

Updated on January 6, 2015

Grohe Fixtures

Because many customers prefer to shop by collections, not the type of fixture or installation, we decided to create a review dedicated to some of Grohe's most popular collections – designs that have become the topics of discussions not only among décor artists and plumbing professionals, but also between experienced homemakers. Like most competitors selections (American Standard, Kohler, Delta Faucet, and particularly Moen) Grohe fixture and faucet collections fall under three main categories: Traditional, Transition, and Contemporary.

Traditional

Traditional lines – Kensington, Seabury, Bridgeford – will usually replicate stylistic features from Victorian era, early pipework patterns, and other turn of the 20th century designs. They create a nostalgic, historical look and generate a distinct classic atmosphere: installed usually only in the bathroom, where aesthetic play an important role, they are given space to instill the proper ambience and play out their “character.”

Transitional

Transitional collections (Geneva, Arden, Somerset) tone down the retro elements, opting for a more modern, art-deco or industrial influences. These fixtures both anticipate recent minimalism and pay tribute to traditional ideas; standing between orthodox and unorthodox, they emerge as Grohe's most aesthetically eclectic products.

Contemporary

Finally, contemporary collections exhibit stark, sharp angles or curves, experimental sculptural approach, imbalanced and irregular shapes, and nature inspired minimalism: Euro series (EuroSmart, EuroDisc, EuroPlus, EuroWing), Ladylux series (kitchen faucets that comprise standard models, Ladylux Pro, Ladylux Plus, and Ladylux Cafe), Essense, Veris, Tenso, Concetto, Talia, Sena, and other titles.

The ultra-modern Rainshower collections deserves a special mention – this line of hand showers employs previously unseen in the industry shapes, especially the circular doughnut shape, that while introduce verve and surprise into the lavatory and the showering experience, also enhance the technologies they carry: in particular the therapeutic DreamSpray.

In all styles offered by Grohe, chrome and nickel finishes emerge as the most common (clearly preferred by the brand): relying on StarLight trademark technology, they preserve the visuals of the metallic pieces more effectively, reflecting light, repelling soil, and resisting scratches.
