Plumbing manufacturer Grohe has released new ceramic toilets and sinks to correspond with its existing faucet lines Eurocube and Essence.
Grohe notes both Eurocube and Essence are popular among customers and says the collection expansions meet growing consumer demand for full bathroom suites and products that reflect personal style.
“We are introducing these collections to meet the growing demand from North American consumers who want the ability to infuse Grohe’s design, innovation, quality, and sustainability into every element of their bathroom,” says Theresa Choh-Lee, brand director for Grohe Americas. “These new collections make it simple to design the entire bathroom seamlessly while matching in form and function.”
Eurocube features sleek lines and angles, offering a modern option for bathrooms. Essence brings a softer, elegant aesthetic to the bathroom with subtle curves and contours, the company says.
One bathroom design trend Grohe noted ahead of the 2021 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show was the desire from consumers to specify products that reflect their style but which also blurred the lines between the bathroom and the bedroom.
“With so many of us staying inside, consumers are looking to make updates to their space according to their design taste,” the company says. “For example, a sink is no longer just a vessel to wash your hands but a reflection of your personal style. … Both [Eurocube and Essence] are meant to help create a bathroom that fosters harmony and relaxation while allowing homeowners to explore their personal style.”

The expansions include one sink and one toilet that maintain each collection’s signature design details. Both toilets feature a compact skirted design and are made from vitreous china, providing bright white color and easy to clean surface, the company says.
Grohe’s InfinaBright and DreamClean technologies help the toilets remain clean. InfinaBright reduces bacteria and dirt build-up on the surface, while DreamClean’s rim design releases a powerful flush to scrub the toilet bowl.
Both toilets are CEC and EPA WaterSense-certified, with a single flush option of 1.28 gallons per flush or a dual flush option with 1.28/1.0 gallons per flush. Neither toilet features edges for bacteria to harbor.
The fireclay sinks feature the company's Alpine White finish and add durability. Both the Eurocube and Essence sinks come in two styles: wall-hung and undermount. The undermount style can also be installed as a drop-in.

Eurocube toilet and sink
Faucets from the Eurocube collection offer a squared silhouette for a minimalist modern aesthetic and are available for both bathrooms and kitchens. The squared-off faucets are available with matching two linear handles, a single side lever, or a single top lever.
The contemporary counterpart to the modern Eurocube line, Essence ties both linear and curved elements together in its faucet line. Essence faucets are available for the kitchen as well as the bath. There are six different Essence bathroom faucets in varying sizes, designs, and handle configurations. Finishes include brushed and Polished Nickel, Hard Graphite, chrome, and Brushed Cool Sunrise.
