Grohe Valves, Thermostats, Bathroom/Lavatory/Shower Accessories Review

Updated on January 6, 2015

Grohe Accessories

Grohe shower accessories – a broad range of products that includes thermostats, pressure valves, towel bars, robe hooks, and other fixtures – put the final functional and aesthetic touches in modern shower and bathroom configuration.

Thermostats and valves provide a close control over the water's temperature and the quality of it's stream: installed on the wall below the shower or beside it, both pieces appear like integral elements of the whole system.

Towel bars, towel rings, paper holders, and robe hooks are more of a “low tech” type of fixtures which nevertheless perform an essential function; organized by Grohe into collections, they will match existing designs, and contribute to a unified, consistent look in the bathroom.

Valves and Thermostats

A Grohe Thermostat constitutes, in effect, a shower control panel. First, it allows to determine the an exact temperature and prevent sudden jumps, thereby securing bathers from accidental burns.

Pressure valves often complement the thermostats, appearing on the same trim – they can be installed separately, but combined with temperature control create a complete-solution combination. Finally, a diverter gives the option to divert the stream from the shower to the spout, and back.

Technologies that support the entire setup include CoolTouch, DreamSpray, Thermostat, and others; available in Arden, Atrio, Concetto, Esssence, Eurodisc, Europlus, Eurowing, Geneva, Allure, GrohSafe, Kensington, Seabury, Tenso, Veris, and Talia collections – presenting antique, classic, industrial, retro, minimalist, contemporary, transitional, and other decorative styles.

Bathroom Accessories

Such bathroom supporting fixtures as towel bars and rings, robe hooks, and paper holders arrive in fewer designs, but will inevitably draw the attention for their clearly defined geometrical contours (circles, lines, rectangles), and surprisingly wide selections of finishes: chrome, brushed nickel, satin nickel, oil rubbed bronze, and polished brass.

When dispersed across the lavatory walls, these installations can also act as emergency handles, allowing bathers to grab on them when in precarious situation. In order to comply stylistically with existing faucets, tubs, and showers, most of these products were rendered to resemble either a faucet lever or a grab bar.
